Description lpolycarpou 2008-05-01 13:40:20 UTC
In the BPEL mapper, right-clicking on an element gives the user the ability to add a node, text, comment, processing
instruction to the Input variable.

Once these are added in this way, they cannot be removed from the mapper.  Right-clicking on these items does nothing. 
This should be a trivial function for the mapper to allow users to right click on these items and remove them. 
Furthermore, stubs do not appear to be created for these items.  Is this correct behaviour?
Comment 1 lpolycarpou 2008-05-01 17:19:30 UTC
These items are actually not saved so when you go back to the Assign view again, they are gone.  This is not ideal for predicates where the user may want to 
define the predicate in the Design view and then use the Source view to edit the mappings.  Users can workaround this by making at least one mapping after 
they have defined the predicate but this is not ideal.  I believe stubs should be added for predicates.

These functions are not supported by runtime. So issue is not valid anymore. List of supported XPATH functions can be

Wrong evaluation was added. Reopen.
Comment 4 Nikita Krjukov 2008-10-14 15:46:07 UTC
I think "It is correct behavior". At least it works just like it was intended. 
A possibility to save such state (in bpel sources) was added for predicates last time. 
It is reasonable for predicates because of they can be complex. But it doesn't reasonable for 
node() and others.

verified using \\thumper\50builds\gfesb-sync\v2\nightly\20090105-0707 and add node(), text, comment, processing
instruction to the Input variable are not available when user right clicks the node in mapper.
