Description Li Li 2009-01-14 17:45:15 UTC
Current WS-Eventing defines the concept of Event Source, but does not specify how to address it in the Subscribe message. The sample Subscribe messages suggest that WS-Addressing [destination] EPR is used to address the Event Source, but this mechanism is not mandated. It is also not clear how to address individual event sources, such as a port type or dynamic event sources, in the Subscribe request.

We propose to mandate using WS-Addressing [destination] EPR to address any event sources. For example, a port type event source is addressed in SOAP as:
	<wsdl:portType wsa:IsReferenceParameter='true' name='eventPortType' />

A CSTA monitor is addressed as:
	<csta:MonitorCrossRefID wsa:IsReferenceParameter='true'>

Resolved 2009-03-10 with "All messages defined by this specification are sent to a Web service that is addressable by an EPR [WS-Addressing 1.0 Core]" to be added at an appropriate place, this change to be extended to all of the specs.
