Subject [jira] [Created] (AXIS2-5884) Change parameter "Description" to lower-case for service.xml.
Date Wed, 06 Sep 2017 18:54:00 GMT
Thorsten Schöning created AXIS2-5884:

             Summary: Change parameter "Description" to lower-case for service.xml.
                 Key: AXIS2-5884
             Project: Axis2
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: deployment
    Affects Versions: 1.8.0
            Reporter: Thorsten Schöning
            Priority: Minor

Because of AXIS2-5881 I had a look at my own Axis2 services and recognized that their description
is wrong and is the service name instead of what is defined in the service.xml file. The problem
was simply using "description" instead of "Description" and the latter is documented, so I
must have simply overlooked the different spelling.

So why not change this configuration to lower case to be in-line with all other configs in
this file and with most other configs as well?

Searching through the Axis2 codebase reveals that "description" is hard coded at some places
already and I even found service.xml files in tests where "description" is used, so are wrong
in theory. The only environment where "Description" seems to make sense is module.xml, which
uses "InFlow", "OutFlow" etc. as well.

So we can change the value of TAG_DESCRIPTION to be lower case and hard-code something for
modules or keep TAG_DESCRIPTION as it is and hard code a lower case variant for service.xml
or simply use "description" for all, which wouldn't like that right in module.xml anymore...

What do you prefer?
