EAI — Unnamed derived association between an EAITerminal and a source or sink

  • Key: EAI-16

  • Summary:

    Document: UML Profile and Interchange Models for EAI
    Section: 6.3.3 (EAITerminal)

    The last constraint in this section states that "An EAITerminal on the exterior of a node constructed from an FCMComposition has a derived association with a single source or sink." Since it is not named, it is unclear to what "derived association" this statement refers, if the association even exists in the metamodel.

    The constraint needs to be made explicit. Perhaps the "interface" association from FCMNode to FCMTerminal (which is a derived association in Figure 6-2) is meant. In this case, however, note that the constraint cannot be written as a constraint on FCMTerminal, since this association is not navigable from FCMTerminal back to FCMNode. I think the constraint would have to be on FCMComposition (or, better, on EAIMessageFlow).
