CWM12 — Component Re-use unclear

  • Key: CWM12-59
  • Legacy Issue Number: 4512
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Adaptive ( Mr. Pete Rivett)
  • Summary:

    By using the inherited ElementOwnership association to link SOftwareSystem and Component, this would seem to prevent the same component being reused in many systems. Though an Import association is depicted in Figure 8-7-1, nothing is said in the text about its semantics in this context: typically this would be used just for definitions/types ("extending the namespace" according to the description in the Core model) and not something that would need to be physically deployed as part of the SoftwareSystem.

    Proposed resolution: Introduce a new many-to-many shared aggregation to link SoftwareSystem and Component.
