Subject: RE: [wsrp-wsia] [I#6]Update: Is groupId required?

I agree for the most part, but if the purpose is grouping, then why
wouldn't the ID be groupID and the operation be initGroup()?

I do not like the idea of piggybacking this on the first operation within
the group ... how is the Consumer to tell which transport level items
(cookies for http) are related to initializing the group and which are
related to interacting with the entity?

Introducing an implicit transport level token that is not reflected in our
application protocol (SOAP- headers or interface WSDL) seems bad on design
principles alone, to me, as producers are not always going to be one (http
or other transport) hop away from producers. Therefore the pattern should

initEnvironment(environmentID) - if environment needs to be explicitly
operation(environmentID) - if operation is in the context of the named
environment then the context should be explicit.

I don't mind limiting the use cases for initEnvironment (as long as it
remains optional) but I do wonder why we are both trying to simply the
semantics and adding an extra costly network round trip to the end user
interaction (maybe initEnviornment and its result should carry a timestamp
so that user dead time can be easily measured as well as a
context/environment/grouping identifier? ;-)

How about instead limiting a new connection to only one outstanding
getMarkup or performInteraction at first use so that a context can be
established both at the transport and wsrp level? This avoids the extra
initEnvironment round trip but I would still vote for some form of
context/environment/group identifier to make explict the shared context.

      Yup. Sorry. I'll update the list (remove the "we are postponing..."
      part). Note however that a "tentative proposal" email was also sent.

            Hi Gil,

            I think you got a little confused. Regarding this we said we
            will vote next week to remove groupId from the spec.
            It was regarding the isRefresh that we said we will defer until
            after the JSR meeting.

                  Title: Is groupId required?
                  Since we now have initEnvironment, which is the solution
                  for shared sessions, do we now need groupId, which was
                  also defined as a mechanism for group sessions.
                  We are postponing this until we hear some more
                  information from the JSR-168 liason people.
