Issue - 113 - Optional Port Types

Status: open
Categories: Syntax and validation
Date added: 25 Mar 2004
Submitter: Yaron Y. Goland
Date submitted: 25 March 2004

Currently we require that portType be specified on message activities, even though it is redundant, because it is useful for error checking. But it seems unfair to require programmers to constantly specify portType if they don't want or need the extra error checking.

As such this issue proposes that portType be made optional. If the portType attribute is specified on a message activity then the BPEL validator MUST check that the value of the portType matches the value for the relevant role in the partnerLink definition. If the specified value for portType does not match its expected value then the BPEL MUST be rejected.
