Core and Subsystem Capability and Requirement Listing

Version 12

    THIS DOCUMENT IS NOT CURRENT OR AUTHORITATIVE IN ANY WAY. IT IS RETAINED SOLELY FOR THE HISTORICAL RECORD

     

     

    The intent of this document is to identify the conceptual capabilities that various subsystems or the WF core may make available to other subsystems, and the requirements that subsystem may have on other subsystems or the core.

     

    Core capabilities do not need to be listed unless they are somehow not always present.

     

    My hope is people will just start filling this in and it will evolve wiki-style. So don't worry too much about proper names for stuff etc; put down what you know and count on evolution to drive toward the correct name.

     

    If you change the name of something, please change all occurences of it.

     

    My expected format would be something like:

     

    CORE

     

    Capabilities:

    • FOO -- allows users to have excellent foo

     

    EJB Subsystem

     

    Capabilities:

    • BASE -- basic EJB capabilities
      • Requires: CORE:FOO
    • REMOTE -- remote ejb invocation
      • Requires: EJB:BASE, REMOTING:BASE

     

    So,
