Legacy Issue Number: 9342
I do not see what exactly is the semantical difference between activity
models and BPMN, besides its syntactic constituents. Secondly, BPMN does
not address the objects or nouns which activitiy diagrams do. Process
with objects provide complete meaning, process without objects is
typeless and thus meaningless.
Reported: BPMN 1.0b1 — Tue, 31 Jan 2006 05:00 GMT
Disposition: Resolved — BPMN 1.1
The [previous] FTF disagreed with the statement that a process without objects is meaningless.
The modeling audience that desire/require object-orientation is not the same audience that is the
target of BPMN. Perhaps Activity Diagrams fit the former audience better, and Activity Diagrams
are always an option. However, the FTF recognizes that although the audiences may differ greatly,
the modeling scope of Activity Diagrams and BPMN greatly overlap. At some point, the OMG will
have to deal with this.
This is not an issue that can addressed by the BPMN RTF in terms of the BPMN specification version
Close, No Change: This issue is out of scope for the RTF, but should be addressed by the OMG
community as a whole.
