DTV — Relationship of UML model to SBVR is undocumented

  • Key: DTV-22
  • Legacy Issue Number: 16870
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Thematix Partners LLC ( Mr. Edward J. Barkmeyer)
  • Summary:

    The Date/tTime UML model contains a package called "SBVR", which is a selective subset of SBVR concepts from the SBVR Meaning and Representation Vocabulary (MRV). The specification itself does not identify that vocabulary as 'adopted' or 'included'. If it is actually adopted into the Date/Time vocabularies, the Date/Time UML model should import the SBVR MRV MOF model and not include an ad hoc replacement.

    The Date/Time UML model also uses a set of undefined stereotypes: fact type, fact type role, etc. These stereotypes appear in the diagrams in the specification. The stereotypes use SBVR terms, but they are not defined in the SBVR v1.1 specification, nor are they defined anywhere else. If nothing else, these should be defined in Clause 5.

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

    After discussion with the SBVR v1.2 RTF, and the resolution of DTV Issue 16660, it was decided that the DTV UML model should contain a package that consists of exactly the SBVR terms and concepts that are explicitly adopted into the DTV vocabularies. The UML package SBVR-DTV replaces the package called "SBVR", and contains only the UML model elements for the adopted SBVR elements, as specified in the revised Clause 4, per Issue 16660.
    The stereotypes are specified in a UML Profile for SBVR (-DTV) that is the result of resolution of issue 17129.
    Figures that are affected by the change of the name of stereotype <<fact type>> to <<verb concept>> – and are otherwise unchanged from the beta2 specification – are updated by this issue to correct the stereotype name. These figures are otherwise unchanged.
