CWM12 — We only need one COBOL Data Division metamodel.

  • Key: CWM12-51
  • Legacy Issue Number: 4744
  • Status: open  
  • Source: International Business Machines ( Dr. Daniel T. Chang)
  • Summary:

    CWM vol. 2 3.1 says "The concepts and ideas implicit in the definition of the COBOL language's DATA DIVISION were one of the earliest (if not the first) formalizations of the ubiquitous record model. A COBOL program contains much more than just record descriptions. However, because neither CWM nor UML attempt to describe programming languages directly, only the DATA DIVISION is described here. The model presented here is compliant to the COBOL 85 language standard [COBOL]."

    UML Profile for EAI 14.1 says "The goal of this COBOL model is to capture the information that would be found in the Data Division." .

    Both define COBOL Data Division metamodels with different levels of detail. We only need one COBOL Data Division metamodel.
