SCE — Frequently changing Namespace URIs cause market fragmentation

  • Key: SCE-117
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Camunda Services GmbH ( Mr. Falko Menge)
  • Summary:

    Based on experience with DMN, frequently changing namespace URIs, i.e. with every minor revision, cause market fragmentation across supported specification versions, as it cannot be assumed that all vendors update to the latest version of the spec at the same time, if at all.

    This forces users to do unnecessary version migrations or their models would not be opened by a tool as invalid or outdated.

    Revisions by an RTF only have a mandate to fix bugs and should therefore only add a limited amount of new language elements. Thus only a small percentage of models created using the new spec version actually use new features. So the majority of models could still be opened and edited in older tools if it weren't for the namespace to completely prevent that.
