C2MS11 — For consistency, all message types should have a name that ends with "message"

  • Key: C2MS11-11
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Braxton Technologies, LLC ( Gerry Simon)
  • Summary:

    For most of the message types in C2MS, this convention is followed. The exceptions are:

    -Archive Message Retrieval Request
    -Archive Message Retrieval Response

    These were likely left this way because they already have "Message" in the name, though with a different meaning. Archive Message Retrieval Request Message does sound redundant. Perhaps renaming to any of the following would help:

    • Archived Messages Request Message
    • Archive Retrieval Request Message
    • Archive Request Message
    • Archive Message Request Message

    Not using "Archive Message" in the title is a bit confusing because there is Archive data that is not simply archived messages, see "Archive Mnemonic Value Request Message"

    Note that when originally entered, this issue listed all the following... but in 1.1, the only messages not ending in "Message" are the Archive request/responses.

    -Archive Message Retrieval Request
    -Archive Message Retrieval Response
    -Telemetry Message for CCSDS Packet
    -Telemetry Message for CCSDS Frame
    -Telemetry Message for TDM Frame
