...

Thanks to Alex for much of the source material.

The green items are already included in the WE.

...

  1. Offline capability - should this be somewhere - needed but not a killer (F & K), doesn't work properly in 1.7.1 as cannot be undone, very useful maybe not a killer (P)
  2. Add Nested Workflow - possibly beanshell etc. as well - nested workflow is a killer (F & K & P)
  3. Rename - sets the title of the workflow - can be done by annotation/configuration - is there a need for name and title for a workflow - Franck says needed but not killer, didn't know about it (P)
  4. Create New Input
  5. Create New Output
  6. Annotation/metadata via contextual view - save button, keep on chosen tab! (P)
  7. Collapse (expand?) all sub-items (P)

Killers: (2), (7)

Workflow inputs

  1. Create new input

 Individual workflow input port

  1. Rename - currently as edit
  2. Edit metadata - description and mimetypes - description is killer , mimetype is "a good thing" (F & K) ; need both (P)
  3. Incoming links - merge all data - don't care(F & K & P)
  4. Incoming links - select first link - don't care (F & K & P)
  5. Connection via dragging in T2 GE - need connection capability (not via dragging) via r-click
  6. Edit Output Port
  7. Delete Output Port

Killers: (2), (5)

Individual workflow output port

  1. Rename - currently as edit
  2. Edit metadata - description and mimetypes - description is killer , mimetype is "a good thing" (F & K). need both (P)
  3. Connect to workflow outputs ... - killer (F & K & P)
  4. Connect to processors -> individual input - killer (F & K & P)
  5. Connection via dragging in T2 Graphical Editor (covered by 3 and 4)
  6. Edit Input Port
  7. Delete Input Port

Killers: (2), (3), (4)

  1. Metadata - killer (F & K & P)
  2. Retries, Delay, Back off, Thread, Critical - killer (K), care but not killer (F), never used (P)
  3. Configure (available for some in 1.7.1), need all in T2.1 - r-click configure is killer (F & K & P) - may be list of ways to configure e.g. list handling, annotation, beanshell-ness.
  4. Set as boring - don't care but like idea (K), not a killer and needs to be cleverer (F), never use (P)
  5. Add breakpoint - doesn't work anyway (K), never used (F & P)
  6. Edit templates (1.7.1 has a really weird general RDF annotation capability) - never used (F & K & P)
  7. Show/Hide ports (in T2 GE) - not needed (F & K), useful but not killer (P)
  8. Link from output... (in T2 GE) - killer but on input/output ports (F & K & P)
  9. Link to input... (in T2 GE) - killer but on input/output ports (F & K & P)
  10. Nested workflow show/hide contents in 1.7.1 and T2 GE - not a killer but current WE capability is not good enough (K), is OK (F) - Note needs edit workflow etc.; needs redoing to not show code guts, as T1, very important, maimer (P)
  11. Real name for a service (currently done by remote resource usage) - killer (F & P) (should be in contextual view)
  12. Coordinate from
  13. Delete Processor
  14. Contextual view including details, list handling, looping

  1. Connect to workflow outputs ... - killer (F & K & P)
  2. Connect to processors -> individual input - killer (F & K & P)
  3. Contextual view - not clear what purpose it has - pointless (K), should be same as corresponding part of service's details (F), never used (P)

The Workflow Explorer is currently inconsistent in the names it uses "Datalink" v "Link" v "Data link"
Individual Data link

  1. Remove data link - OK
  2. Contextual view - not clear what purpose it has - OK (K), Not clear what for (F), no point (P)

Control Links

  1. Totally missing - killer (F & K & P)
