Subject: NEW ISSUE (v 1.2): Global domain channels creation inconsistent withpattern established by definitions.xml
Title: Global domain channels creation inconsistent with pattern
established by definitions.xml|
Target: Assembly 1.2 WD 03
The Assembly specification defines a "definitions.xml" file that can be used to declare/define constructs that are shared across multiple composites. This file currently encompasses implementation types, binding types, policy intents, XML Schemas, WSDLs, and so on. Quite inconsistently however, global domain channels (GDCs) are defined when deployed as part of any composite deployed directly to the domain (not as part of implementation.composite). The current version of the spec doesn't justify this inconsistency.
Besides the inconsistency, this triggers a number of related problems (which could possibly be solved in a different way):
(In abstract form) Remove the text from section 5.8 that describes how channels defined in a composite directly contributed to the domain define GDCs. Add text which describes how they can be declared via definitions.xml.
