Subject: Fw: [sdd] [OASIS Issue Tracker] Created: (SDD-18) AdditionalContentTypespecification clarification


You might see a bunch of e-mail similar to this one. Now that we all have 
Jira accounts, I went back to all of the issues and assigned them to their 
respective owners. Merri, you got any "specification only" issues; other 
issues were assigned to the person who raised it or the person who has 
already agreed to pursue it.

PLEASE NOTE that some of the issue are already closed, having already been 
completed (I entered all of the v1.1 issues, even if we had already 
completed them). So you might see a notice about an issue assigned to you 
that you've already completed; don't worry, that issue has a "Closed" 
status in the Jira tool.

If anyone disagrees with any of the issue assignments or notices other 
errors in any of the information in Jira, please fix it or let me know and 
I'll do so.

[sdd] [OASIS Issue Tracker] Created: (SDD-18) AdditionalContentType 
specification clarification

AdditionalContentType specification clarification 

                 Key: SDD-18
                 URL: http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/SDD-18
             Project: OASIS Solution Deployment Descriptor (SDD) TC
          Issue Type: Improvement
         Environment: Specification
            Reporter: Brent Miller 
            Assignee: Merri Jensen
            Priority: Minor

Jason raised a question about how an SDD author expresses what should be 
"done" with AdditionalContent elements. For example, should a BAT file 
undergo variable substitution by the SDD runtime, or should it also be 
executed by the SDD runtime?

After discussion, it was concluded that any content referenced in 
additionalcontent is content that is being made available to the artifact. 
 In the example, one would make the BAT file the artifact and the ZIP file 
the additional content.  In this way, it is clear that the runtime always 
executes artifacts and the usage pattern is that additional content is 
used by the artifact but additional content is not executed by the 

It was also concluded that this is not clear in the specification and 
warrants a discussion about whether the specification should be updated. 

(In addition, for v1.1  we may want to add a URI attribute to additional 
content (use=optional) so that the artifact can reference the additional 
content via that path.  Until then, we are going to assume that the 
artifact and additional content are in the same location. Jason will 
consider a proposal for this change and if pursued, this will be done in a 
separate issue/item).
