BACM — Meaning of "generalization" of instances

  • Key: BACM-36
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Thematix Partners LLC ( Mr. James Rhyne)
  • Summary:

    Likewise “The user may also indicate that one instance generalizes another, but the implementation is not obligated to determine that the instance model is consistent.“ - what does generalization even mean between instances and won’t it depend on the metaclass? E.g. what would it mean to be a generalization of LegalEntity IBM Corp?

  • Disposition: Duplicate or Merged — BACM 1.0b2
  • Disposition Summary:

    Rewrite and consolidate prose description of instancing

    This proposal is mostly resolved by the proposal attached to BACM_44 (to resolve issue BACM-43) and a proposal (BACM-67) to resolve issue BACM-45.
    The remaining part of this issue, that the BACM metamodel does not have a distinct domain of individuals (viz. the domain of classes and object properties as distinct from the domain of individuals and assertions) is unresolved. This proposal creates a separate issue (BACM-68) with a proposal to defer.
