Subject: [NEW ISSUE] WS binding support for ?wsdl should be non-normative

Target:  sca-wsbinding-1.1-cd04.pdf


BWS20029 is currently a SHOULD:

Any service hosted by an SCA runtime with one or more web service bindings with HTTP endpoints SHOULD return a WSDL description of the service in response to an HTTP GET request with the “?wsdl” suffix added to that HTTP endpoint URL. [BWS20029]

Which implies this is an optional feature of the WS binding spec.  In the interest of simplifying the conformance requirements for the binding we ought to consider whether this really needs to be optional.


Make support for ?wsdl non-normative by replacing BWS20029 with the following text:

SCA runtimes can allow access to WSDL descriptions for services with web service bindings, either directly using the common practice for HTTP endpoints of sending a GET request to that endpoint with the "?wsdl" suffix, or by publishing the WSDL to a shared repository.

Remove BWS20028.
Update the test case document test assertions as appropriate for the removal of these statements.
