Subject: [NEW ISSUE] Remove the use of componentType side files from the Java C&Ispecification

Raiser:                 Mike Edwards

Target:                sca-javaci-1.1-spec-wd02.doc


All the features relevant to the componentType of a Java POJO implementation can be derived from introspection,
as described in Section 8 of the Java C&I specification.

Section 10 of the C&I specification suggests that it is also possible to derive aspects of the componentType from a
side file.  However, this section indicates that the merging of information from the side file with the introspected
information is defined by the SCA Assembly specification.  This is not so and the Assembly TC voted a resolution
that put the burden of describing the use of componentType side files squarely on the shoulders of the implementation

In addition, there is a recommendation from the SCA Liaison committee that EITHER componentType information
is derived from introspection or is derived entirely from a componentType side file - but that combining information
from these two sources is not recommended and that an implementation type should choose to do one or the other.

This issue is raised to remove the complexity of merging componentType side file metadata with introspected
componentType information.


Remove Section 10 of the specification.

Yours,  Mike.
