DMN15 — Gaps: Range as input, mapping to JSON, evaluation of non-FEEL expression languages

  • Key: DMN15-96
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Red Hat ( Matteo Mortari)
  • Summary:

    Current DMN Specification v1.4 has a few gaps in the following areas:

    1. Built-in function to support Range conversion
    2. Mapping of FEEL to JSON
    3. Evaluation of other expression language beyond FEEL

    In addition to the above gaps, during conversations in the OMG DMN RTF group, and in other communities with DMN interests, SMEs and Vendors have reported on the missing capabilities for a complete, semantically well-defined and interoperable solution, connected to the mentioned cases. For example, but not limiting to: the need to have FEEL:range as an input of the model, the need for external REST-based invocation of externally defined (stateless, side-effect-free) decision services, etc.

    The pragmatic aspects introduced in this proposal to cover the mentioned gaps above, could also be a meaningful foundational and propaedeutic work if the OMG DMN RTF group will want to pursue to eventually propose the DMN Specification to ISO, and/or the group will want to pursue to eventually refactor FEEL into its own stand-alone Specification.

    Finally, the DMN Specification already provides recommendations in the Annex(es) for integrations, in the scope of BPMN, etc., for harmonised semantic and potential improved interoperability; the DMN Spec could also offer similar recommendations in the scope of gap 3 identified above.

    This document advances pragmatic proposals that would both cover the existing gaps and provide the capabilities required to a well-defined and more interoperable solution.
