Subject: Re: [ebxml-msg] Section TimeToLiveElement


I disagree; the wording is fine as it is.

If the example you've described occurs, the To Party MSH is not operating
correctly.  The TimeToLive value is intended to be the time by which
(end-to-end, application-to-application, whatever you want to call it)
delivery must be complete.  That may mean the To Party MSH discards a
message after it has been persisted in some storage (but not delivered to
its application).

Going further, your previous recommendation made sense though the example
was also slightly incorrect.  In that example, a message found in persistent
store after crash recovery might (MUST) be discarded due to an expired
TimeToLive value.  Of course, we can't say anything about how long it might
take an application to process a message...

The first paragraph in section in the version 1.091 draft now reads:

"If the TimeToLive element is present, it MUST be used to indicate the time,
expressed in UTC, by which a message should be delivered to the To Party. It
must conform to an XML Schema dateTime."

I think the phrase "To Party" should be replaced with "To Party MSH". The To
Party MSH will check the incoming message to determine if its TimeToLive has
expired. It may have to make a persistent copy of the message before
attempting to deliver it to the To Party. A crash may happen after the
message has been persisted but prior to its being delivered to the To Party.
Therefore, it is entirely possible that the To Party only receives the
message after TimeToLive has passed.
