Subject: Re: [wsrp][wsia][wsrp-wsia joint interfaces][Draft Spec 0.43]Terminology


I'm not sure why we distinguish between a type "handle" and a type
"sessionID"? The session ID could be viewed as a transient wrapper around
the persistent entity if there is a many to one relationship between
sessions and persistent entities (as I assume). The markup could then be as
well requested directly from the "session entity". So I would propose not
to distinguish them from an identifier point of view:

   handle   createEntity(handle, propertyValues)
   handle   createSession(handle, propertyValues)

Presuming the 2nd case to get dropped relative to the previous set of
emails, I would propose this section call out how we will refer to these
things throughout the remainder of the document/API. In particular, I would
suggest:
      Session Information - This is carried opaquely in the interface as a
      "sessionID".
      => goes away
      Persistent Information - This is carried opaquely in the interface as
      a "handle".

Rather than "Manifestation", I would propose using "Entity" to describe the
thing from which markup may be requested. I think it has the right level of
opacity (Consumer has no idea what kind of entity it is) while carrying
appropriate semantics (a thing that may be interacted with). Using these
terms, there was also an open question at the end of our last call related
to whether there were both persistent and transient entities ...

If we are going to support explicit lifecycle for both of these, I would
propose:
   handle   createEntity(handle, propertyValues)
   sessionID   createSession(handle, propertyValues)
