      1 Introduction
      This document defines the technical specification for the Exchange Job Definition Format (XJDF) and its counterpart,
      the Exchange Job Messaging Format (XJMF).
      XJDF is a technology that allows systems from many different vendors to interoperate in automated workflows. While
      technically it is an XML software specification, it is more importantly a means to connect multiple vendor solutions to
      a workflow solution for automation.
      XJDF is XJDF 2.0 was the first major version update of JDF. It is such a major update that we decided to provide a new name for the
      XML root element: XJDF. Whereas the minor revisions were at least nominally backwards compatible, XJDF is a major
      redesign that takes more than a decade of experience into account.
      XJDF 2.1 is a minor update of XJDF and is backwards compatible with XJDF 2.0.

      1.3.7 Compatibility with JDF and prior versions of XJDF
      Backwards compatibility within versions that belong to a major release is a design goal for all CIP4 standards. XJDF was
      a major revision and therefore is aligned with JDF but is not backwards compatible with JDF.
      This specification - XJDF 2.1 is designed to be backwards compatible with XJDF 2.0. Therefore any valid XJDF 2.0 document
      will also be a valid XJDF 2.1 document. The namespace URI for XJDF remains the same as for XJDF 2.0: "http://
      www.CIP4.org/JDFSchema_2_0".
      Note: It is anticipated that the value of the XJDF namespace will remain constant for all future versions of XJDF 2. This reflects the backwards compatibility of major versions of XJDF.
      The version of an XJDF or XJMF document SHOULD be specified in XJDF/@Version or
      XJMF/@Version.
      JDF 1.7 is the ##refJDF specification that matches XJDF 2.1 in terms of functional detail.

      1.4.1 Use of XML Namespaces
      XJDF requires the use of XML namespaces. For details on using namespaces in XML, see [XMLNS]. The namespace for
      version 2.0 of XJDF 2.1 is "http://www.CIP4.org/JDFSchema_2_0" and SHALL be declared and SHOULD use either the default
      namespace or a prefix of 'xjdf'.
