DMN14 — LiteralExpression and textual expression seem to mean the same thing, need to use the same term

  • Key: DMN14-6
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Oracle ( Gary Hallmark)
  • Summary:

    literal expression is used in MM, and textual expression is used in grammar. Let's use 1 consistently, but check that they are really the same concept.

  • Disposition Summary:

    `textual expression` does not mean `Literal Expression`

    There are no places where `textual expression` refers to the `literal expression` meta model element.

    `textual expression` is used only in the FEEL grammar and in the refinement of Decision Tables when using FEEL ( Decision Table) and it clearly refers to the FEEL grammar in that instance.

    Each input expression SHALL be a textual expression (grammar rule 2). Each list of input values SHALL be an instance of unary tests (grammar rule 15).
