Subject: Re: [wsbpel] Groups - BPEL Data Manipulation Options (formerly MS-01.rtf) modified


I think this use case should be renamed to

'Simple BPEL XML data assignment between structures / variables'.

BTW - does this use XPath V1.0 ?  I'm suspecting that the loop
example may be XPath V2.0?

Its probably a stretch to call this as use case however - its more
like a tutorial example!

Maybe the use case is really something like -

 "Extracting and interchanging data between process steps"

It also heavily highlights why you need the CAM use cases for
full up content validation and true manipulation of content - such
as replacing code values, or checking part numbers, full date
format handling, and then handling context rules, structure
variations, and so on [what happens in the BPEL if the field
you want is not there, or the data is missing?!?  ; -) ]

Thanks, DW.
