Issue 59 proposal

From: David Orchard <dorchard@bea.com>
Date: Thu, 3 Nov 2005 17:22:26 -0800
Message-ID: <32D5845A745BFB429CBDBADA57CD41AF14276692@ussjex01.amer.bea.com>
To: <public-ws-addressing@w3.org>

I propose a wsaw:UsingAddressing element with a wsaw:Async and
wsaw:ResponseBinding attributes that uses an abstract protocol (aka
uber) MEP to show the relationship between wsdl request-response and
protocol level request-response without mentioning a specific protocol.
There are 9 examples including protocol switch and reverse bindings, so
everybody should be happy.


3.1 UsingAddressing Extension Element


WS-Addressing defines an empty global element, wsaw:UsingAddressing,
that may be used to indicate that an endpoint conforms to the
WS-Addressing specification. The wsdl:required attribute MAY be used to
indicate whether WS-Addressing Message Addressing Properties are
required in messages received from service requesters.

A wsaw:UsingAddressing element with a wsdl:required attribute whose
value is "true" indicates that messages exchanged with the endpoint MUST
contain WS-Addressing Message Addressing Properties. A
wsaw:UsingAddressing element with a wsdl:required attribute whose value
is "false" indicates that the endpoint will accept input messages with
or without WS-Addressing header blocks, and MAY generate output messages
containing WS-Addressing headers. If a SOAP binding is used and
WS-Addressing header blocks are not present in an input message then
WS-Addressing header blocks encoded in the corresponding output message
MUST NOT be required to be understood using the SOAP mustUnderstand
mechanism.

The wsaw:UsingAddressing element SHOULD appear as a child of the
wsdl:binding element. Alternatively, the wsaw:UsingAddressing element
MAY instead be included as a child of the wsdl20:endpoint (or
wsdl11:port) when an endpoint intends to indicate compliance with
WS-Addressing for a specific endpoint only.

The inclusion of the wsaw:UsingAddressing element indicates that the
applicable WS-Addressing specifications are supported within the
constraints of the WSDL binding being used. That is, uses of the
WS-Addressing specifications that may violate or are inconsistent with
the semantics of the endpoint's WSDL binding are not supported unless
explicitly stated by some other mechanism.

Specifically, when included in a SOAP binding, the wsaw:UsingAddressing
marker identifies the use of Web Services Addressing 1.0 bound to SOAP
as defined by Web Services Addressing 1.0 - SOAP
Binding[WS-Addressing-SOAP
<http://dev.w3.org/cvsweb/~checkout~/2004/ws/addressing/ws-addr-wsdl.htm
l?content-type=text/html;%20charset=utf-8#WSADDR-SOAP#WSADDR-SOAP> ].

(Note to reader: Up to this point, this is exactly the same text from
the current editor's draft.  It does need a titch of updating as it
isn't an empty global element.


3.1.1 wsaw:Async attribute


WS-Addressing defines an attribute, wsaw:Async, that may be used in
conjunction with wsaw:UsingAddressing element.  This attribute MAY be
used only when wsaw:UsingAddressing element is present.

The wsaw:Async attribute may have three distinct values, "full", "never"
and "always". If the wsaw:Async attribute is not present, then a value
of "full" is the default.  

*        The "full" value indicates that either one or two protocol
message exchange pattern (proposed in [1] request-optional-response MEP
or in [2] as SOAP-request MEP) instances is used to transmit the request
and response.  When wsaw:Async attribute has this value, then the
response message MAY be the response part (aka
http://www.w3.org/2004/12/ws-addr/mep/ResponseMessage or
http://www.w3.org/2003/05/soap/mep/InboundMessage) of a
request-optional-response or request-response MEP or the response
message MAY be the request part (aka
http://www.w3.org/2004/12/ws-addr/mep/RequestMessage or
http://www.w3.org/2003/05/soap/mep/OutboundMessage) of a separate
request-optional response or request MEP. When the value of the [reply
endpoint] in the request message contains the anonymous URI as the
address, the response MUST be sent as the response part of the
request-optional-response MEP.  When the value of [reply endpoint]
contains an address that is different than the anonymous URI, the
response MUST the request part of a separate request-optional response
MEP with a binding using the destination address value specified by
[reply endpoint]. 

*        The "never" value indicates that a single protocol MEP is in
use.  When wsaw:Async attribute has this value, [reply endpoint]/[fault
endpoint] EPRs in the request MUST NOT contain an address with a value
different from the anonymous URI. If [reply endpoint]/[fault endpoint]
EPRs do not contain the anonymous address value, then a predefined
InvalidAddressingHeader fault defined in Section 5.4.1.7 of defined by
Web Services Addressing 1.0 - SOAP Binding[WS-Addressing-SOAP
<http://dev.w3.org/cvsweb/~checkout~/2004/ws/addressing/ws-addr-wsdl.htm
l?content-type=text/html;%20charset=utf-8#WSADDR-SOAP#WSADDR-SOAP> ]
MUST be generated  (See Section 3 B for the definition of this new
fault). 

*        The "always" value of the wsaw:Async attribute indicates that a
separate request-optional-response MEP for sending response messages.
When wsaw:Async attribute has this value, [reply endpoint]/[fault
endpoint] EPR in the request MUST NOT contain an address with a value
that is the same as the anonymous URI. 


3.1.2 wsaw:ResponseBinding attribute


WS-Addressing defines an attribute, wsaw:ResponseBinding, that may be
used in conjunction with wsaw:UsingAddressing element.  This attribute
MAY be used only when wsaw:UsingAddressing element is present.

The wsaw:ResponseBinding attribute is a list of URIs of bindings that
may be specified for any asynchronous response.  If the
wsaw:ResponseBinding is not present, and the wsaw:Async attribute is not
"never", then the default value is the value of the binding within which
the wsaw:UsingAddressing element appears.  It is an error if the
ResponseBinding contains a value and if the wsaw:Async attribute is
"never".   

A sender of a request message SHOULD use the ResponseBinding value when
creating [reply endpoint] values.  


3.1.3 SOAP HTTP Binding extensions


The wsaw:UsingAddressing inside soap:binding elements extends the
SOAP/HTTP Bindings in a few specific ways.  

Case: WSDL in-out (or request-response) and SOAP 1.1 and non-anonymous
[reply endpoint] is specified.

The first HTTP connection MUST have a status code of 202 and the
response message MUST contain an empty SOAP body.  The actual response
MUST be sent using a separate HTTP connection using the address value of
the response message specified by [reply endpoint]. 

Case: WSDL in-out (or request-response) and SOAP 1.2 and non-anonymous
[reply endpoint] is specified.

Each of the two request-optional-response MEPs be sent using a separate
instance of the @@TBD SOAP 1.2 one-way binding@@.   


3.1.4 Examples


 

These examples are an update to the async scenarios listed in [3].  As
described therein, the identifier for the mythical one-way protocol is
"http://www.openuri.org/mythical-oneway/soap/"

 

Example 3-1. Indicating Sync or Async in WS-Addressing using
wsaw:UsingAddressing in WSDL 2.0 

<binding name="ServiceBinding" 

    interface="s0:ServiceInterface"

    type="http://www.w3.org/2005/08/wsdl/soap12"

    wsoap:protocol="http://www.w3.org/2003/05/soap/bindings/HTTP">

  <wsaw:UsingAddressing wsdl:required="true" />

  <operation ref="s0:EchoString"

      wsoap:mep="http://www.w3.org/2003/05/soap/mep/request-response" />

</binding>

Example 3-2. Indicating Sync or Async in WS-Addressing using
wsaw:UsingAddressing in WSDL 1.1

<binding name="ServiceBinding" type="s0:ServicePortType">

  <soap:binding style="document"
transport="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/http" />

  <wsaw:UsingAddressing wsdl:required="true" />

  <operation name="EchoString">

    <soap:operation soapaction="EchoString" />

    <input> 

      <soap:body use="literal" />

    </input> 

    <output>

      <soap:body use="literal" />

    </output>

  </operation>

</binding>

Example 3-3. Indicating Sync in WS-Addressing using wsaw:UsingAddressing
in WSDL 2.0

    interface="s0:ServiceInterface"

    type="http://www.w3.org/2005/08/wsdl/soap12"

    wsoap:protocol="http://www.w3.org/2003/05/soap/bindings/HTTP">

  <wsaw:UsingAddressing wsaw:Async="never" wsdl:required="true" />

  <operation ref="s0:EchoString"

      wsoap:mep="http://www.w3.org/2003/05/soap/mep/request-response" />

</binding>

 

Example 3-4. Indicating Async in WS-Addressing using
wsaw:UsingAddressing in WSDL 2.0 

<binding name="ServiceBinding" 

    interface="s0:ServiceInterface"

    type="http://www.w3.org/2005/08/wsdl/soap12"

    wsoap:protocol="http://www.w3.org/2003/05/soap/bindings/HTTP">

  <wsaw:UsingAddressing wsaw:Async="always" wsdl:required="true" />

  <operation ref="s0:EchoString"

      wsoap:mep="http://www.w3.org/2003/05/soap/mep/request-response" />

</binding>

 

Example 3-5. Indicating Async with Mythical Oneway Binding in
WS-Addressing using wsaw:UsingAddressing in WSDL 2.0 

<binding name="ServiceBinding" 

    interface="s0:ServiceInterface"

    type="http://www.w3.org/2005/08/wsdl/soap12"

    wsoap:protocol="http://www.w3.org/2003/05/soap/bindings/HTTP">

  <wsaw:UsingAddressing wsaw:Async="always" wsdl:required="true"

      ResponseBinding="http://www.openuri.org/mythical-oneway/soap/" />

  <operation ref="s0:EchoString"

      wsoap:mep="http://www.w3.org/2003/05/soap/mep/request-response" />

</binding>

 

 

Example 3-6. Indicating Async with HTTP or Mythical Binding in
WS-Addressing using wsaw:UsingAddressing in WSDL 2.0 

<binding name="ServiceBinding" 

    interface="s0:ServiceInterface"

    type="http://www.w3.org/2005/08/wsdl/soap12"

    wsoap:protocol="http://www.w3.org/2003/05/soap/bindings/HTTP">

  <wsaw:UsingAddressing wsaw:Async="always" wsdl:required="true"

       ResponseBinding="http://www.w3.org/2003/05/soap/bindings/HTTP
http://www.openuri.org/mythical-oneway/soap/" />

  <operation ref="s0:EchoString"

      wsoap:mep="http://www.w3.org/2003/05/soap/mep/request-response" />

</binding>

 

Example 3-7. Indicating Sync or Async with HTTP or Mythical Binding in
WS-Addressing using wsaw:UsingAddressing in WSDL 2.0 

<binding name="ServiceBinding" 

    interface="s0:ServiceInterface"

    type="http://www.w3.org/2005/08/wsdl/soap12"

    wsoap:protocol="http://www.w3.org/2003/05/soap/bindings/HTTP">

  <wsaw:UsingAddressing wsaw:Async="full" wsdl:required="true"

       ResponseBinding="http://www.w3.org/2003/05/soap/bindings/HTTP
http://www.openuri.org/mythical-oneway/soap/" />

  <operation ref="s0:EchoString"

      wsoap:mep="http://www.w3.org/2003/05/soap/mep/request-response" />

</binding>

 

Example 3-8. Indicating Async in Interface in WS-Addressing using
wsaw:UsingAddressing in WSDL 2.0 

<interface name="ServiceInterface">

  <wsaw:UsingAddressing wsaw:Async="always" wsdl:required="true" />

  <operation name="EchoString"
pattern="http://www.w3.org/@@@@/@@/wsdl/in-out">

    <input element="s0:EchoStringMessageIn"/>

    <output element="s0:EchoStringMessageOut"/>

  </operation>

</interface>

 

The above is only a possibility.  It would require updating the
usingAddressing to say what it means if a child of interface, and it
would require changes to disallowResponseBindings.  Alternatively, the
async attribute could be made an element for inclusion as a child of
interface.  

 

Example 3-9. Indicating PAOS Async in WS-Addressing using
wsaw:UsingAddressing in WSDL 2.0 

<binding name="ServiceBinding" 

    interface="s0:ServiceInterface"

    type="http://www.w3.org/2005/08/wsdl/soap12"

    wsoap:protocol="http://www.w3.org/2003/05/soap/bindings/HTTP">

  <wsaw:UsingAddressing wsaw:Async="always" wsdl:required="true" />

  <paos:reverseBinding wsdl:required="true"/>  

  <operation ref="s0:EchoString"

      wsoap:mep="http://www.w3.org/2003/05/soap/mep/request-response" />

</binding>

 

The paos:reverseBinding would have to say something akin to :

 

"In the first protocol MEP, put the paos:Get value in the Action MAP and
generate a full paos Get request including other MAPs.  The first
protocol MEP response must contain the binding operation's request.  The
response may have a [reply endpoint].  The second protocol MEP request
must contain the binding operation's response and be sent to any [reply
endpoint]. "

 

Cheers,

Dave
