Subject: Re: [wsbpel] Issue - 102 - Fixing Typos in getVariable*() in BPELexamples

Hi Ron and others,

"<" needs to be expressed as "&lt;" in attribute values or text nodes, while it is not necessary to express ">"  as "&gt;" to make it legal / well-formed in XML attribute values or text nodes.

I have seen a similar question raised by another Oracle internal developer.

I would like to submit a proposal to vote, if there is no further question or opposition to this issue.

And, in the proposal, I would like to suggest to add a couple of sentences to clarify the XPath's query/expression inherits the namespace-to-prefix mapping from the current element.

Shouldn't we make the XML attribute values legal as well?

Issue - 102 - Fixing Typos in getVariable*() in BPEL examples

Status: open
Date added: 9 Mar 2004
Submitter: Alex Yiu
Date submitted: 08 March 2004
Description: There seem to be typos in our BPEL examples
"bpws:getVariableProperty(stockResult,level) > 100"
"bpws:getVariableProperty(stockResult,level) >= 0"
"bpws:getVariableData(orderDetails) > 100"

We need to put quotations on function parameters.

It becomes like:

"bpws:getVariableProperty('stockResult','level') > 100"
"bpws:getVariableProperty('stockResult','level') >= 0"
"bpws:getVariableData('orderDetails') > 100"

In some of the examples the "bpws:" is actually extra and incorrect. The prefix-namespace mapping of a function call in XPath typically inherited from that of the hosting element.
Changes: 9 Mar 2004 - new issue
