SPMSSR — Clarification needed for multiplicity of Interpattern Relationships

  • Key: SPMSSR-2
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: The Software Revolution ( Jason Smith)
  • Summary:

    When reading the Relationships section (11.1) it appears at first glance that a pattern can only be a member of one category at a time. It only becomes obvious after looking at Figure 1 in the Definitions section (8.1) that the multiplicity of memberships in categories is shown there. The model is correct, but explanatory text should be added to section 11.1 to reiterate that a single PatternDefinition can have any number of Interpattern Relationships.

  • Disposition Summary:

    Clarify that a PatternDefinition can have many InterpatternRelationships

    Proposed to alter Section 11.1, pg 17, paragraph 1 from:
    The Relationships package defines classes to enable rich searching and semantic association in a repository or catalog of PatternDefinitions. The package overview is shown in Figure 6. InterpatternRelationship provides semantic linkages between PatternDefinitions. KnownUse provides specializations of PatternInstances suitable as examples of a PatternDefinition in concrete situations.

    The Relationships package defines classes to enable rich searching and semantic association in a repository or catalog of PatternDefinitions. The package overview is shown in Figure 6. InterpatternRelationship provides semantic linkages between PatternDefinitions. A PatternDefinition can have multiple InterpatternRelationship connections to allow for a rich connected network. KnownUse provides specializations of PatternInstances suitable as examples of a PatternDefinition in concrete situations.
