Use relative queries instead of absolute queries in XPath expressions ? [message #9951] Tue, 23 October 2007 09:28

I have a problem with the BPEL designer.

I just created a new BPEL process (synchronous process template). I want
to assign the content of the input message to the output message.

I create an Assign action, and a new Copy.

When I choose "input -> payload -> input" (variable / part / element) in
the from part of the copy, the designer generates an XPath query
I wonder why an absolute query is created there instead of a relative

I think the context node in BPEL for XPath queries is the message part.
If the query is an absolute query ("/tns:input") the node is searched from
the document root (the message) and so the node "input" is not found.
If the query is relative ("tns:input"), the node is searched from the node

I think this is shown in the examples of the section 8.2.6 of the BPEL
spec .

Is there a bug in the designer or did I misunderstand something in the
spec ?
