Subject: Re: COMPLEXITY BIG ISSUE
Message text written by Nikola Stojanovic > BTW, I just did something that might be seen as Recursive. And it was Simple. I included in "this" msg body reference to another msg. <<<<<<<<<< Nikola - simple inserts are not a recursive mechanism - you know that! In fact if one of the inserts contains an insert to the original document - that is clearly an error. Recursion at the level of the metamodel itself is what is problematic. Of course it is doable - but I caution that in version 1.0 this is not a requirement. We also have to look hard at the business justification. All of current EDI exists without recursion. It's hard to think of recursively buying a book from Amazon.com..... If you can show a cast iron real life B2B business transaction use (not documents) that mandates recursion (cannot be done easily with iteration) then I would be more sympathic. DW.
