DMN11 — Constraints on Decision Table elements unclear

  • Key: DMN11-24
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Bruce Silver Associates ( Mr. Bruce Silver)
  • Summary:

    The S-FEEL and FEEL grammars of chapters 9 and 10 suggest a much wider range of allowed syntax in decision tables than are illustrated in any examples of the spec. For example, input entries and output entries may reference one or more "names" - presumably variables - but in the examples they reference only literal values. Also, all examples of input expressions are simply variable names, not expressions. Additional text is needed to explain what is allowed and not allowed in decision table elements.

    Text to explain constraints on decision table elements

    These edits reflect grammar rule changes consistent with what is allowed in decision table elements under DMN11-49, resolving ambiguity of the terms "name", "expression", and other inconsistencies. This proposal was reviewed and agreed by Jan Vanthienen and myself and is ready for consideration by RTF.
