Hi, I have some (further) questions relating this time to the Process Model:

1)
How is the top-level process definition defined?
Examples use service:topLevelProcess and service:isImplementedBy:
<process:ProcessModel rdf:ID="myService_ProcessModel">
  <service:topLevelProcess rdf:resource="#myService_Process" />
  <service:isImplementedBy>
    <service:Service rdf:resource="&myService_service;#myService"/>
  </service:isImplementedBy>
</process:ProcessModel>

Where #myService_Process is the instance definition of the top level process
(a subclass of Process).

However, From the ontology the correct method is to use:
<process:ProcessModel rdf:ID="myService_ProcessModel">
  <service:describes rdf:resource="&myService_service;#myService />
  <process:hasProcess  rdf:resource="#myService_Process" />
</process:ProcessModel>

2)
How is a process expanded and collapsed? The congo and bravoair examples
each use different methods to do this, or are they both valid? Expanding
this, is there a set/preferred method of defining everything? I seem to
remember reading previously that there is none.

Thanks,
Ed
