Subject: Issue - 304 - clarification on whether the QName of a fault needs to be unique across all portTypes and operations
This issue has been added to the wsbpel issue list with a status of "received". The status will be changed to "open" if a motion to open the issue is proposed and that motion is approved by the TC. A motion could also be proposed to close it without further consideration. Otherwise it will remain as "received".
The issues list is posted as a Technical Committee document to the OASIS WSBPEL TC pages on a regular basis. The current edition, as a TC document, is the most recent version of the document entitled in the "Issues" folder of the WSBPEL TC document list - the next posting as a TC document will include this issue. The list editor's working copy, which will normally include an issue when it is announced, is available at this constant URL.
"This results in a fault identified in WS-BPEL by a QName formed by the target namespace of the corresponding portType and the fault name. To ensure uniqueness, this uniform naming mechanism MUST be followed even though it does not match the WSDL’s fault-naming model ..."
Does that text require the QName of a fault to be unique across all portTypes and operations? That is: two different operations within the same portType or two different portTypes of the same TNS define the same fault name (potentially with two different message types). Are these cases of WSDL design legal and usable by WS-BPEL?
It seems to me that the intention of phase "to ensure uniqueness" is unclear. Does it just mean a uniform behavior? Or, it tries to enforce universally unique across all WSDL definitions?
