    Replication Steps

    1. Identify a patron record with a blank barcode
    2. Run an XML patron export that will capture that patron record.
    3. Note the resulting XML.
    <patron xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
    
    <barcode xsi:nil="true"/>
    
    1. Using the same file, run XML patron import to add the records back into the database.
    2. Resulting error:

    ERROR:  'org.xml.sax.SAXParseException; lineNumber: 2; columnNumber: 60; cvc-elt.3.1: Attribute 'http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance,nil' must not appear on element 'barcode', because the {nillable} property of 'barcode' is false.'
    Input file is not well formed (line 2 column 60): cvc-elt.3.1: Attribute 'http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance,nil' must not appear on element 'barcode', because the {nillable} property of 'barcode' is false.
