Subject: Updated Committee Spec docs and RDDL

Hi everyone,
  In order to shortcut further delays, I've taken the liberty (with Diane's okay) to update the specification with the latest cover page(s) metadata as well as update the RDDL file. There's one new bit of metadata that was recently approved by the Board of Directors concerning trademarks. More information can be found here: http://www.oasis-open.org/who/trademark.php. Note that the last paragraph in the status section contains a field for any additional terms that should be trademarked and will need to be updated.

Web Services Business Process Execution Language (WS-BPEL)

31 January 2007


This document describes version 2.0 of the WS-BPEL namespace. It also contains a directory of links to related resources using the Resource Directory Description Language (RDDL) 2.0.

Namespace URI Versioning Policy

It is the intent of the OASIS WS-BPEL Technical Committee that the WS-BPEL v2.0 namespace URI will not change arbitrarily with each subsequent revision of the corresponding WSDL or XML Schema documents but rather change only when a subsequent revision, published in conjunction with a Committee Specification, results in non-backwardly compatible changes from a previously published Committee Specification.

Under this policy, the following are examples of backwards compatible changes that would not result in assignment of a new namespace URI:

  • addition of new global element, attribute, complexType and simpleType definitions
  • addition of new operations within a WSDL portType or binding (along with the corresponding schema, message and part definitions)
  • addition of new elements or attributes in locations covered by a previously specified wildcard
  • modifications to the pattern facet of a type definition for which the value-space of the previous definition remains valid or for which the value-space of the preponderance of instance would remain valid
  • modifications to the cardinality of elements for which the value-space of possible instance documents conformant to the previous revision of the schema would still be valid with regards to the revised cardinality rule
