CORBA34 — Add the capability to define a component artifact property

  • Key: CORBA34-105
  • Legacy Issue Number: 5513
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Raytheon ( Jerry Bickle)
  • Summary:

    7. Component Artifact - Add the capability to define a component artifact
    property. For
    example, a logical device component artifact could be used to specify the
    capacity for
    a device or the characteristic of a device. The artifacts for a component
    are referenced
    by a component's implementation dependency for using or deployed on
    relationships.
    The component artifact property could be defined in two ways: 1) a new
    element
    called artifact or modifying the simple definition with optional new
    artifact element.

    Artifacts are simple types. The action element defines the action that can
    be
    performed on an artifact. When a dependency references an artifact with a
    specified value this is the action that can be performed against a
    component's
    artifact. The ID is a DCE UUID to guarantee uniqueness of the artifact
    within the
    system; so 2 different artifacts, which are different, are not viewed to be
    the same
    artifact when they are not. The action denoted as external indicates the
    artifact is
    managed by the component. A referenced value for an artifact would have to
    be
    applied against the component.

    Example 1 of New Artifact Element

    <!ELEMENT artifact
    ( description?
    , simple
    , action
    )>
    <!ATTLIST artifact
    id ID #REQUIRED>

    <!ELEMENT action EMPTY>
    <!ATTLIST action
    type ( eq | ne | gt | lt | ge | le | external ) "external">

    Change properties element to

    <!ELEMENT properties
    ( description?
    , ( simple

    sequence
    struct
    artifact
    valuetype
    )+
    ) >

    Example 2 of Modified Simple Element with new Artifact element

    <!ELEMENT simplekind EMPTY>
    <!ATTLIST simplekind
    kindtype (configure_writeonly | configure_readwrite | execparam |
    query_readonly | factoryparam | artifact) "configure_readwrite">

    <!ELEMENT simple
    ( description?
    , value
    , choices?
    , simplekind*
    , artifact?
    , defaultvalue?
    ) >

    <!ELEMENT artifact
    ( action
    )>
    <!ATTLIST artifact
    id ID #REQUIRED
    action ( eq | ne | gt | lt | ge | le | external ) "external">
