EAI — Sources and sinks are called operators in the profile but not the metamodel

  • Key: EAI-100
  • Legacy Issue Number: 5247
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Model Driven Solutions ( Ed Seidewitz)
  • Summary:

    Document: UML Profile and Interchange Models for EAI
    Sections: 8.3.10 (Sources and Queued Sources), 8.3.11 (Sinks and Queued Sinks)

    Description:
    Sections 8.3.10 and 8.3.11 describe sources and sinks as kinds of operators. However, in Section 6.3.6, the corresponding metamodel elements are NOT defined as subclasses of EAIOperator, but rather are directly subclasses of FCMSource and FCMSink. Indeed, EAI sources and sinks cannot be operators, if they are really to serve the role of FCMSources and FCMSinks (which is to provide the internal view within an FCMCommand of the external terminals of that FCMCommand), since operators are FCMFunctions, and FCMSources and FCMSinks are not.

    Recommendation:
    Do not describe sources and sinks as operators. Move the description of sources and sinks out of Section 8.3 on operators.
