Subject: Should introduction of @Local annotation (JAVA-3) affect the Semantics ofan Unannotated Implementation


Should the introduction of @Local annotation affect the "Semantics of an
Unannotated Implementation" (section 8 in sca-javaci-draft-20070926.doc)
where we are currently using only interfaces marked with @Remotable in
computing the references/properties of an implementation?

Minor nit: the @OneWay annotation applies to a method, not to an
interface.  Your example should be updated to show this.

In your example, these services are local.  Issue JAVA-3 has proposed a new
annotation @Local that could be used on Interface1and Interface2 to allow
them to be recognized by the introspection algorithm.

I believe this discussion can be handled under JAVA-3 and there is no need
to create a new issue.

In Java Component Implementation Specification 1.00, we have the following

143 Introspecting services offered by a Java implementation
144 In the cases described below, the services offered by a Java
implementation class may be determined
145 through introspection, eliding the need to specify them using @Service.
The following algorithm is used to
146 determine how services are introspected from an implementation class:
147 If the interfaces of the SCA services are not specified with the
@Service annotation on the implementation
148 class, it is assumed that all implemented interfaces that have been
annotated as @Remotable are the
149 service interfaces provided by the component. If none of the
implemented interfaces is remotable, then by
150 default the implementation offers a single service whose type is the
implementation class.

What if an interface is annotated with SCA annotations such as @OneWay or

For example:

public class MyServiceImpl implements Interface1, Interface2 {

public interface Interface1 {

public interface Interface2 {

By the spec, there is only one service named MyServiceImpl. But isn't it
more natural that we should find two SCA services: Interface1 and
Interface2? Please clarify.
