Issue - R10 - Definition of IMA scope

Status: received
Date added: 19 Sep 2006
Date submitted: 18 September 2006
Submitter: Alex Yiu

I would like to request to open a review issue to improve the ease of understanding of the spec. The discussion was under the thread of subject: "A possible issue concerning the definition of IMA scope" started by Ron Ten-Hove.

If the issue is passed, we would just need to refine some cross-referencing of terms and bookmark.
Submitter's proposal:

Besides 10.4.1, another relevant part of IMA and message exchange handling is in section 12.2:

12.2. Message Exchange Handling

When the primary activity and the event handlers of a <scope> complete then all Web service interactions dependent on partner links or message exchanges declared inside of the <scope> need to be completed. An orphaned IMA occurs when an IMA using a partner link or message exchange, declared in the completing <scope> or its descendants, remains open. ....

I would suggest to do a brief update in 10.1.4 from:

Further if an open IMA goes out of scope prior to being closed
Further if an open IMA goes out of scope (known as an orphaned IMA) prior to being closed
(see section 12. Scopes for other details of bpel:missingReply).
(see section 12.2 Message Exchange Handling for other details of bpel:missingReply and orphaned IMA).
