Subject: Re: [wsbpel] Issue - 106 - ASSERT activity.

1) Should an exception be thrown and potentially compensated, rather than terminated ??
2) Should the assertion be attached to a "scope" level, rather than activity level ??

Rgds, Ricky

Issue - 106 - ASSERT activity.

Status: open
Date added: 18 Mar 2004
Submitter: Maciej Szefler
Date submitted: 18 March 2004
Description: I'd like to propose the addition of an assertion facility to the BPEL language. Specifically I'd like to see <precondition> and <postcondition> elements added to the list of standard elements, something along the lines of:
<expression language="XPath">
<expression language="XPath">


Interpetation of the <pre-/post-condition> elements would be optional, but if assertions are enabled the expressions must evaluate to "true" or else the process instance is immediately terminated (ala <terminate>). Assertions would be available to both executable and abstract processes. -standard argument for assertions goes here-.
