BPMN21 — Redundancy in specifying data in processes

  • Key: BPMN21-72
  • Legacy Issue Number: 15054
  • Status: open  
  • Source: University of Stuttgart - ISW ( Frank Leymann)
  • Summary:

    There is an obvious redundancy in defining data in BPMN 2.0 (data objects, item definitions, messages, import of schema,...). The current spec does not say what is mandatory to be specified in which situation. At least the most common scenarios should clarified in the spec, e.g. what must be specified in case a WSDL doc is already available and the message described in this document should be used by a service task; or what must be specified in case in incoming message (by a start event) should be copied to a data object.

    I submitted a comprehensive document describing the situation to the issues@omg.org address, whithout any reaction since weeks. I am happy to send this document to the one assigned to this issue and discuss it.
