Error saving if Desc MD section is empty

Project:RUcore Workflow Management System (WMS)
Component:Create/Edit Digital Objects
Category:bug report

Collection: PK Test Collection
Record: Test Sound Record
Time: approx 10:30am

Record selected for editing, then clicked on Source MD tab, and save (no edits). Resulting error:

Fatal error: Call to a member function getChildren() on a non-object in /mellon/htdocs/openwms/test/dwms/common/ido/IdoXmlConverter.php on line 70



Status:active» test

Test again. -YY


Currently working for that record, but an existing record with no descriptive metadata resulted in the following along with an error box:

Error occurred while executing saveCreate()

screenshot attached.

**This appears to happen only when there is no item type associated with the record**

I think a message should be displayed to at least enter typeOfResource and Title in desc MD before saving the record. But I will do it in the next release or another release.

Tested by selecting PK Test Collection-->create new record-->save
I tried this with several types of content model, all saved successfully.
