Warning needed if regex contains DFDL Entities

    XMLWordPrintableJSON

    Details

      Description

      Users will write dfdl:lengthPattern="(.+?)(?=%CR;%LF;--)"

      Then wonder why it doesn't work (witness DFDL-792).

      Turns out, DFDL entities aren't allowed in regular expressions, so the user has to write:

      dfdl:lengthPattern="(.+?)(?=\r\n--)"

      We should examine properties that are supposed to be regex, and warn if they contain things that look like DFDL entities.
