BACM — Usage of "leg target" terminology unclear

  • Key: BACM-33
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Thematix Partners LLC ( Mr. James Rhyne)
  • Summary:

    It gets further confusing in “the target end of a leg” when early it says that a leg itself can be a “target” (or source).

  • Disposition Summary:

    This issue is resolved by proposal BACM-44 to issue BACM-43

    The revisions proposed in BACM-44 explain the "leg" as designating associations generated in the transformation to MOF-compliant XMI that reifies n-ary associations and association classes. The term "leg target" refers to a model element that is at the opposite end of a "leg" association from the metaclass that is generated to represent the n-ary association or class association. A "leg target" may be a generated class resulting from this transformation process. The abstract syntax for this is in Diagram and the transformation description in the proposal BACM-44
