Issue - R46 - Named message elements

Status: received
Date added: 23 Jan 2007
Origin: Public comment Oliver Kopp, 18 Jan 2007 (public comment list)
Date submitted: 15 Jan 2007
Submitter: Oliver Kopp
Document: WS-BPEL 2.0 second public review text
Description: In the current version of the spec, the "name" attribute may only be used to name activities.

It is helpful for us to have names on all elements used for receiving messages. I.e. we would like to have the possibility to name <onMessage> and <onEvent> elements. Maybe it is be good for consitency to offer "onAlarm" also to be named.

Compact example:

<pick name="WaitForBidOrReferral">
 <onMessage name="processBid" ...>
       <onEvent name="statusRequest" ...>
 <onMessage name="processReferral" ...>
 <onAlarm name="timeout">

We know that there is no requirement on the names to be unique. We want to solve that issue by specifiying a new Abstract Process Profile.

Is it possible to work-in our proposed change in the upcoming version of the specification?
