(Status: Incubation) The support for WS-Notification has three phases:

  • interoperating with third-party WS-Notification implementations
  • providing a basic subset of WS-Notification features in a JBI Service Engine
  • providing enhancements and tools (and a more advanced subset of WS-Notification features)
Project/Use Cases/Intro
  • The purpose of this tabbed wiki page is to provide enough information to Doc and QE/QA to complete their documentation and testing.
  • Use-case related information provided here:
    1. Actors - participating in the use-cases
    2. Primary Use Case - the main Basic Flow ("happy-path") use case (no error paths)
    3. Alternate Use Cases... - several alternative Basic Flow ("happy-path") use-cases (no error paths)
Project/Use Cases/Actors
  1. Administrator - a person who sets up and manages subcriptions, consumers, and producers
  2. Notification Consumer - a web service or JBI endpoint with a notify operation (to receive notifications)

2 - the notification's topic is valid for at least one consumer (passes the filter)
Basic Flow: User Action
1 The user creates an event that causes a producer to send a notification to the subscribed consumer
2 The user verifies that the subscribed consumer received the correct notification
Basic Flow: System Action
The broker (producer) finds a subscribed consumer for the notification and invokes the notify operation
Post Conditions
No change to the system
Project/Use Cases/Alternate Use Cases/Summary
  • Subscription - subscribe self/other; subscription expiration, extension, termination
