This issue has been added to the BTP issue list

BTP Issue 25 : Clarity needed between atomic and cohesion

Category: technical
Submitter: Bill Cox, (for all BEA members)
Submitter's identification: issue D
Greater clarity needed between atomic and cohesion--the terminology for cohesion makes the terminology for atomic less clear

Detail: The draft attempts to reconcile two different levels and kinds of protocols: one where the action fails or succeeds (Atomic), and another where a higher level protocol (Cohesion) deals with the recovery from failures while working toward a more complex goal. Abstract terms (e.g. superior/inferior) require confusing "mental casting," especially since an actor can be either of those roles in a binary interaction.

Proposed Remedy: Define conformance so that "core conformance" is all and only what is needed for atomic. Creating separate sections for Atomic BTP and Cohesion BTP would clarify. Ensure that Atom can stand alone.
