The Bar Scenario Conversation


At this point we are ready to tackle an entire WSCL interface. Accordingly, the bar conversation is presented in full in Figure 5-18.

We've already covered all of WSCL, so the interface shown in Figure 5-18 doesn't hold any significant surprises. However, there are a number of elements whose function is interesting, particularly those Interaction elements that have multiple possible OutboundXMLMessages and the corresponding Transition elements which possess a SourceInteractionCondition. Take for example the billing aspect of the conversation, which involves the following interactions:

These interactions show the back-and-forth of paying for drinks (with the possible error condition that the wrong amount is tendered) and are joined together by this transition:

 <wscl:Transition>   <wscl:SourceInteraction href="Bill"/>   <wscl:DestinationInteraction href="ProcessBill"/> </wscl:Transition> <wscl:Transition>   <wscl:SourceInteraction href="ProcessBill"/>   <wscl:DestinationInteraction href="Bill"/>   <wscl:SourceInteractionCondition href="BillUnpaid"/> </wscl:Transition> <wscl:Transition>   <wscl:SourceInteraction href="ProcessBill"/>   <wscl:DestinationInteraction href="Goodbye"/>   <wscl:SourceInteractionCondition href="BillSettled"/> </wscl:Transition> 

These transitions describe the fact that the barman and the customer are allowed to go their separate ways once the bill has been settled. Importantly, the final transition from ProcessBill to Goodbye is guarded by a SourceInteractionCondition which declares that the BillSettled message must have been issued by the barman before the transition could occur.
