[ogsa-hpcp-wg] ***SPAM*** HPCBP Advanced Filter extension

I have a couple of questions as I read the spec more
closely. Section 3 says that all sub-elements of the <AdvancedFilter> are
additive, but I'm not sure if this is exactly what is intended. For example,
if I put <Username>Bob</Username> and <Username>Alice</Username> in the
filter, I want jobs that are owned by Alice or Bob (not Alice and Bob). I
think what we want is to say that sub-elements of different types (e.g.
<Username> and <State>) are additive and sub-elements of the same type (e.g.
2 <Username>s) are "ORed".
For the Username filter, I'm wondering if there are issues in a
multi-credential world for which we might want to add some clarification
text. For instance, are you interested in the username known to the backend
resource or the username used to identify the client to the service? I
presume you'd want the former, which can be different than the later.
Currently, HPCBP only allows specification of the later (though there is the
optional username element in the HPCPApplication). In the future something
like the ActivityCredential document might be used to carry the former.
Anyway, my question is whether there should be some clarification text
saying something about how the client must understand the way in which the
service will assign usernames to jobs in order to formulate the correct
username string for the filter? The service may do this straight-forwardly
by using the same username for both authentication to the web service and to
the backend, but the client must understand this through out-of-band means.
The other (more complicated) option is to have the service advertize
something that tells the client how to construct usernames.
Should we add something about throwing an UnsupportedFeatureFault or
InvalidRequestMessageFault if you send in a filter with sub-elements which a
service does/can not support? My service, for example, currently uses GUIDs
in its activity IDs and so the range-based ID search doesn't work well

Attached is a first draft of the 'Advanced Filter' specification for the
HPCBP to reduce the size of the GetFactoryAttributesDocument for large
activities and resources lists.
