>             Fix For: 2.0
> The SCXML XML/XPath datamodel support has been dropped from the final W3C SCXML 1.0 specification
[1], because of too many functional and semantic complications and limitation, as well as
lack of interest for implementing it.
> The implementation of the XML/XPath datamodel in Commons SCXML has been problematic for
precisely the same reasons.
> And not being able to provide such implementation properly by us (Commons SCXML) actually
has been one (final) argument for dropping it from the specification...
> In Commons SCXML 2.0, we need to drop the support for XML/XPath based datamodel, and
instead introduce a much easier to implement and support JSON datamodel as alternative, for
all current Commons SCXML support 'languages': JEXL, Groovy and Javascript.
