- Comments on Proposal
on the proposal:
think that making a series of SCA-related documents into conformance points, as
per section 12.1, is unnecessary and unwise.
The only point
of making these documents into conformance points is if it is intended to write
testcase(s) that will validate those
I do not believe that we have the resources to write such testcases and
as a result, the conformance demands made
here are a
waste of time and effort.
What matters is
what an SCA runtime does with the documents - we have that fully specified -
and we have testcases for these claims.
2) Form of the
conformance statement for documents is incorrect.
Should read as
Composite Document is a file that MUST have an SCA <composite/> element
as its root element and MUST conform
sca-core-1.1.xsd schema and MUST comply with the additional constraints on the
document contents as defined in
Interoperable Packaging document"
terminology is not used in the spec. "Contribution Packaging using
ZIP Packaging format" would be correct.
normative statement "A ZIP file containing SCA Documents and other related
artifacts which MUST have a
Document as a top level element." is simply incorrect.
states clearly that "it can contain a top-level "META-INF"
directory and a "META-INF/sca-contribution.xml" file
and there can
also be a "META-INF/sca-contribution-generated.xml" file in the
- so the
contribution file is NOT mandatory and it is certainly not "top
4) Item 4 in
Section 12.2 - Requirement to implement the Web services binding.
I'd prefer a
looser requirement to implement ONE of the adopted bindings. Forcing Web
services in all cases seems more
necessary to me.

I am a little surprised, given your rather persuasive argument in the Java TC a
couple of weeks ago, that you did not include a contribution as a conformance
target. It seems to me that if a contribution is going to conform to a
C&I spec, it must also conform to the assembly spec.
