  • XML Open Gateway Developer Guide. The element syntax IsComplete and completed were recognized as deprecated forms and are replaced by complete. For example, when true, the optional complete element for the OBSAssocs element indicates that any OBS associations represent a complete replacement as a set. When the value is false, the operation inserts and/or updates any existing OBS associations. Sample content including sample .xsd files may continue to show the old forms. The documentation reflects this recognition of a single standard in topics that include the complete element with the following note:

Note: Complete replaces deprecated forms completed and IsComplete.
