DMNFTF — MM in figure 26 does not share InformationItems for shared InputData and Decisions

  • Key: DMNFTF-26
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Oracle ( Gary Hallmark)
  • Summary:

    Consider a DRD with 10 decisions that all require the same InputData I. The DRD will have 10 InformationRequirement arrows, and the MM will have 10 InformationRequirement instances. Because, according to Fig 26, the InformationRequirement owns the InformationItem, then there will be 10 (hopefully) identical copies of the InformationItem for I. Why is this a good idea? What happens if the 10 copies diverge in value?

    Proposal: InputData and Decision should own the InformationItem that denotes their output.

  • Disposition Summary:

    The revised text does not completely resolve the issue, but it reflects agreement that imported DRD elements may need to be referenced by something more than a simple Name.
