NEW ISSUE: Definition of the WSDL 2.0 binding needs to be in terms of the WSDL component model

• Description

Our WSDL Binding defines an extension to WSDL 2.0 by defining a global
attribute wsa:Action to be placed on input, output and fault
elements[1], and a UsingAddressing marker.

However, WSDL 2.0 is defined as a component model[2]. To define our
extension properly for WSDL 2.0, we need to define it in terms of the
component model.

• Target

WSDL Binding

• Proposal

I believe that this requires a bit of editorial massaging, as the
extension will define UsingAddressing and @wsa:Action, and we may need
to do some amount of duplication for WSDL 1.1. Below is a high level
proposal of what it would look like.


X. WSDL 2.0 WS-Addressing Extension

This section defines the WS-Addressing Extension for WSDL 2.0.

X.1 Relationship to WSDL Component Model

This extension adds several properties to the WSDL component model:

  * {mandatory maps}, REQUIRED. An xs:boolean, to the Binding
    Component. This property indicates whether the use of
    WS-Addressing 1.0 is mandatory. When "true", messages exchanged
    with the endpoint MUST contain WS-Addressing Message Addressing
    Properties. When "false", the endpoint will accept input messages
    with or without WS-Addressing header blocks, and MAY generate
    output messages containing WS-Addressing headers.

  * {action}, REQUIRED. An xs:anyURI, to the Interface Message
    Reference and Interface Fault components. This property is an IRI
    defining the value of the WS-Addressing 1.0 [action] Message
    Addressing Property.

X.2 XML Representation

The XML representation for expressing WS-Addressing information are
one element information item and one attribute information item with
the following Infoset properties:

- A MANDATORY UsingAddressing element information item with the
  following Infoset properties:
  - A [local name] of UsingAddressing
  - A [namespace name] of http://www.w3.org/@@@@/@@/addressing/wsdl
  - One or more attribute information items amongst its [attributes]
    as follows:
      - An OPTIONAL required attribute information item with the
	following Infoset properties:
	- A [local name] of required
	- A [namespace name] of http://www.w3.org/2005/08/wsdl
	- A type of xs:boolean
      - Zero or more namespace qualified attribute information items.
- An OPTIONAL Action attribute information item with the following
  Infoset properties:
  - A [local name] of Action
  - A [namespace name] of http://www.w3.org/@@@@/@@/addressing/wsdl
  - A type of xs:anyURI

X.3 Mapping from XML Representation to Component Properties

{mandatory maps}

  The value of the wsdl:required attribute information item on the
  wsaw:UsingAddressing element information item, if present; otherwise


  The value of the wsaw:action attribute information item, if present;
  otherwise the default value computed following the rules from
  section 4.2 Default Action Pattern for WSDL 2.0.


This proposed text is using the same definition pattern as the
definition of the extensions in Web Services Description Language
(WSDL) Version 2.0 Part 2: Adjuncts[3].
