RE: Keep business-process-specific data separate?

Then why does the transportation office stamp it? I think the answer will reveal that the action is relevant to your objective, if for no other reason than the office requires it. (eg, if it doesn't happen, the process stalls and you miss your flight.) > I think that it's bad to put business-process-specific data with my XML > vocabulary. > > Do you agree? No. In a business context, what's the point of exchanging any bit of data if not for the purpose of enabling a business process (immediately or sometime later; directly or indirectly)? >Is this a smart thing to do - include a <Submission-Datetime> element in >my Transportation Task Request XML vocabulary? No opinion, for now. Best regards, Jim Wilson
