Subject: [bt-spec] BTP Issue 29 : Redirection

This issue has been added to the BTP issue list

BTP Issue 29 : Redirection

Submitter: Bill Cox, (for all BEA members)
Submitter's identification: issue H
Submitter's title: Participant timeout impact needs further discussion.
Note: The original title doesn't seem to correspond to the substance
Category: technical
(Submitter documents are email from Alistair Green 20011023, BEA 20011018) Alistair Green's rebuttal, supporting including transport functionality into BTP, has a sound motivation, but complicates BTP while violating generally accepted layering approaches. At the least, this belongs in a separate specification (SOAP with redirection? Generic redirection protocol?). His argument that it is necessary doesn't mean it should be standardized via a back door such as BTP. There are many other things about which one could make the same argument. (e.g., reliable messaging, dealing with failed message routers)
Proposed Remedy:
Eliminate the redirector and related message from the specification. Submit this functionality to an appropriate standards group, e.g. W3C XML Protocols. In the alternative, break it out clearly as an enhancement to messaging services, and giving it a separate section to make separate use easier.
