Hi.

 

Yes, in the end that would help understanding Xpath based filtering a lot.
There is one example in the specification – maybe an Annex can provide a
more elaborate example with multiple expressions – up to you.

 

My original issue was with filtering wrapped / unwrapped notification
content, but that issue was solved (or rather: the document already
specified that the xpath expression must be applied before adding any
wrapper to an event, which is exactly what should be done).

 

Thanks.

Johannes

I think Johannes is really looking for some example event data and some
likely XPath expressions that do and do not result in the transmission of a
notification of that event.

A possible way to address this issue is to add the highlighted sentence in
[1] to WS-Eventing specification. How does this sound to you?

 

Thanks.

Implied value is  "http://www.w3.org/2009/09/ws-evt/Dialects/XPath10".

XPath expressions provided for the event filtering should take into account
the notification format (wrapped or unwrapped). While an XPath predicate
expression provides great flexibility and power, alternate filter dialects
MAY be defined. For instance, a simpler, less powerful dialect might be
defined for resource-constrained implementations, or a new dialect might be
defined to support filtering based on data not included in the notification
message itself. If desired, a filter dialect could allow the definition of a
composite filter that contained multiple filters from other dialects. New
dialect definitions MUST include sufficient information for proper
application. For example, it would need to include the context (which data)
over which the filter operates

Hi again.

 

It seems like it is the responsibility of the subscriber to know which type
or types of event XML it is subscribing for. As WS-Eventing does not add a
wrapper around notifications by itself, it can only be the events that the
client subscribes to which come in multiple formats - which the subscriber
should know and then write the Xpath expression accordingly (or rather,
avoid different event XML types in one subscription altogether if Xpath
[1.0] based filtering should be used).

 

So that would solve the issue with the wrapper format for me (second half of
my previous email).

 

Now the only thing that would be good to clarify in the WS-Eventing
specification is how an Xpath expression should be created if the context
node is the root node of the event XML - this would best be done with an
example and some expressions which do or do not result in a match.

 

Best regards,

Johannes Echterhoff
