DMN13 — Semantics of variable in decision table input entry

  • Key: DMN13-74
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Oracle ( Gary Hallmark)
  • Summary:

    (on behalf of Bruce)
    On p122 it says "In Grammar Rule 51c, the qualified name must evaluate to a comparable constant value at modeling time, i.e., the endpoint must be a literal or a named constant". This says variables, except design-time constants, may not be used in decision tables. I think this constraint is not supported by the grammar and eliminates important functionality. Any name in scope should be allowed.

    No longer an issue

    I don't see the prohibition against variables in the current spec. It may have been lifted by the introduction of generalized unary tests. Let's close if no longer an issue.
