CTS2 1.0 FTF Avatar
  1. OMG Issue

CTS2F2 — CTS2 XML file appears to contain EA proprietary elements

  • Key: CTS2F2-82
  • Legacy Issue Number: 16347
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Model Driven Solutions ( Mr. Steve Cook)
  • Summary:

    Looking at 11-06-20.xml, I see elements such as <thecustomprofile:interface base_Class="EAID_F37A3B0D_CFE6_448a_A95F_26FDC113F2A2"/>, which are EA-specific representations. This needs to be fixed to be properly XMI compliant.

    The UML 2.x Specification insists that Stereotypes be bound to a
    But in EA, users can freely type-in any name in the "Stereotype" field (
    in the "Properties" dialog of a construct ).
    Such freely typed-in stereotypes do not belong to any profile.

    When exporting to XMI 2.x, we cannot export a stereotype unless we
    specify its profile.
    So, we create a dummy profile called "thecustomprofile" in the namespace
    http://www.sparxsystems.com/profiles/thecustomprofile/1.0 and bind all
    the freely typed-in stereotypes to this profile.

    For example, refer to the attached Snapshot.png - Class1's stereotype is
    "opt" ( I typed-in this in the "Stereotype" field in the "Properties"
    dialog of the class ) & Activity1 is a BPMN 2.0 activity.
    When exported to XMI 2.x, the stereotype "opt" is linked to
    "thecustomprofile" as underlined in green.

    NOTE :
    XML Namespace is just a method to avoid name conflicts & using the
    namespace http://www.sparxsystems.com/profiles/thecustomprofile/1.0
    doesn't means that our XMI is OMG in-compliant.
    If you want, you can manually change the namespace of the
    "thecustomprofile" ( or any other profile used in the XMI file ) from
    http://www.sparxsystems.com/profiles/thecustomprofile/1.0 to the desired
    namespace ( at the location boxed in brown ).
