FYI: Schema change CPCI

Post by martien » Mon Aug 26, 2019 10:52 pm

Since the change to CPCI my Solr Database didn't load, while it missed the field "...generating-office".
Although I'm working with JSON instead of XML, it seems to me that the XML Schema changed and
the information in the roll-out docs for CPCI may be not complete.

Kind regards,

Martien

Hi,

We were assured by IT that schema was not touched at all.

Hello Vesna,

before the CPCI change I got e.g.(pn=NL1016861):

Code: Select all

   
                      <patent-classifications>
                            <patent-classification sequence="1">
                                <classification-scheme office="" scheme="CPC"/>
                                <section>A</section>
                                <class>01</class>
                                <subclass>J</subclass>
                                <main-group>25</main-group>
                                <subgroup>12</subgroup>
                                <classification-value>I</classification-value>
                            </patent-classification>
                        </patent-classifications>


and now:

Code: Select all

   
                         <patent-classifications>
                            <patent-classification sequence="1">
                                <classification-scheme office="EP" scheme="CPCI"/>
                                <section>A</section>
                                <class>01</class>
                                <subclass>J</subclass>
                                <main-group>25</main-group>
                                <subgroup>12</subgroup>
                                <classification-value>I</classification-value>
                                <generating-office>EP</generating-office>
                            </patent-classification>
                        </patent-classifications>
   


Isn't this a schema change?

No, CPC.Schema.xsd is a definition of a CPC schema (not CPC scheme, which is different), CPC International on the other hand is a way of coding CPC classes a generic (international) way.

From the perspective of CPC Schema nothing has changed with introduction of CPC International,
