Subject: RE: [wsbpel-uc] Definition of "Entity"
I think we are close.
My proposed changes -- I think we should re-introduce the 'functional' qualifier, and drop the 'and roles...' clause, so it would read something like this:
"An entity is any functional organization, including for example businesses, government agencies, and division or departments within such organizations."
The 'roles' clause doesn't add anything to what qualifies as an entity, and it may confuse things later as we flesh out the vocabulary - e.g., I anticipate that we will want to talk about entities taking on various roles, etc.
/An entity is any component of an organization to include businesses,government agencies, divisions or departments within organizations,and roles within organizations such as seller./
Also, the difference with UN/CEFACT definition of a business entity can be enumerated as a footnote.
