Subject: RE: [sca-bindings] ISSUE-22: Callbacks for binding.ws


I’d like to get this topic started.  I’ve narrowed the subject line from the original Issue 22 title, since I’d like this particular thread to be on how callbacks could be handled in the WS-* world.  We can handle conversations and other bindings on other threads. 


First, I’ll assume that we will try to use WS-Addressing, if possible.  


My first thought is that it would be preferable to be able to leverage the ws-ReplyTo field, since I believe that it should be possible to distinguish replies from callbacks, and I also believe that callbacks should go to the same place that replies would go to.  I have a vague recollection that Anish preferred the use of <wsa:from> rather than <wsa:replyTo> for passing callback ID information.  Unfortunately, I can’t find an email to that effect, so I’ll ask that he confirm or deny that.


I've been thinking that the client that is going to receive callbacks might want the reference parameters that would be available if the service provider follows the rules from the "Formulating a Reply Message" section of the WS-addressing spec.


One way that a callback could be distinguished from a reply is that the callback could have a <relatesTo> header that uses a relationship type of "oasis.org/isCallbackFor" and a reference to the messageID that the callback is in response to.  I haven’t seen other uses of the <relatesTo> header, but it seems like this is exactly the sort of thing it is meant for.

At present, it is not clear which, if any, of the Bindings specifications enable the implementation of two important
features of SCA described in the Assembly specification - namely Callback interfaces and Conversational

Each of the Bindings specifications should explicitly declare if it is possible to support each of these features.

For each of the Bindings specifications that claim to support either or both of these features, the specification
should provide a full description of at least one exemplary implementation of the feature using the Binding
technology described in the specification.  Multiple alternative implementations are permitted and may be
added to the specification.

For example, it may be possible to implement Callbacks using WS-Addressing capabilities with Web services.
If so, and example, showing the use of appropriate features of WS-Addressing and other relevant WS-*
capabilities should be added to the specification.   If an alternative exists using (say) WS-Context, then an
example based on that technology can also be provided.


None at present.
