DTV — Date Time Issue: quotation in OCL of UML symbols that include blanks

  • Key: DTV-17
  • Legacy Issue Number: 16714
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: General Electric ( Mark Linehan)
  • Summary:

    During the Architecture Board's review of the final submission, Pete Rivett asserted that the document quotes UML symbols incorrectly when they are referenced in OCL statements. When a UML symbol includes a blank or other special character, the final submission wraps the symbol with double-quote characters. Peter Rivett says that UML has adopted another quoting mechanism. We need to check the UML standard and also what the tools actually support.

  • Disposition: Resolved — DTV 1.0b2
  • Disposition Summary:

    The specification is updated to quote OCL symbols using a leading underscore-single-quote character pair and a trailing single-quote character per the latest OCL specification. For example, the symbol 'time interval' is quoted as _'time interval' in OCL.
