The jbossesb-1.3.0.xsd file contains the LOCAL invmScope service configuration option but it is commented out.
<!-- Invokable over InVM only from within the same/local deployment. -->
<!-- xsd:enumeration value="LOCAL" / -->
We need this option to be available in ESB 4.9 as we have a large number of GLOBAL scoped services which really only need to be LOCAL scoped. We could configure the services to use NONE scope, but we do not want to configure a listener for all of the services. The LOCAL scope would also allow us to avoid adding additional security configurations and work-arounds.
