Subject: Re: Fw: [wsbpel] Issue - 92 - Proposal for vote

Hi all,

Some comments on Issue 92's current poposal:
  • After more thinking, I would prefer we don't need to declare the namespace as an extension, if that extension is optional to understand.
  • We may want to consider adding an optional schemaLocation attribute for people to denote where they can get the schema defintion for those extension element.
  • Again, I really still think declaration of extension should NOT be extensible themselves. Otherwise, we need to define the ordering of those extensions.
    This is a very normative issue. One way or the other, it must be stated very explicitly in the proposed resolution.

Please note that: there are more thoughts forming on Issue 92.
Let's discuss more on tomorrow conf call.

Proposed resolution for Issue 92:
A new subelement of the process root element is used to declare extensions
used in the process and specify whether they must be understood by the
BPEL runtime.

This declaration provides information needed by the process deployer in
order to decide whether a BPEL process containing language extensibility
elements can be executed by the runtime.

Add text to section 6.2. The Structure of a Business Process

  <process ...>
        <extension namespace="anyURI" mustUnderstand="yes|no"/>+

Add text to section 6.3. Language Extensibility

  The "extensions" subelement of the process is used to declare the
  namespaces of ALL BPEL extension attributes/elements and indicate
  whether they carry runtime semantics that must be understood by
  the BPEL runtime. If this criteria is not met, then the BPEL
  implementation MUST reject the process.

  If the runtime does not support one or more of the extensions with
  mustUnderstand="true", then the process MUST NOT be deployed.
  Extensions declared with mustUnderstand="false" MAY be ignored by the
