EAI — Incorrect description of Figure 8-1

  • Key: EAI-34
  • Legacy Issue Number: 5222
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Model Driven Solutions ( Ed Seidewitz)
  • Summary:

    Document: UML Profile and Interchange Models for EAI
    Section: 8.2 (Terminals)

    Description:
    The first paragraph of Section 8.2 describes the "prototypical example" of the notation for terminals shown in Figure 8-1 as follows: "This shows a primitive operator with two input and two output terminals. The output terminals are of the same kind, but the input terminals are not (one is known to be a queued terminal, even though they both handle the same kind of message format). The names of the terminals are, in this case, label1 and label2."

    This description has two problems:

    o The diagram only shows one input terminal (the queued terminal is not shown).
    o The text only lists two of the three terminal labels (the label "outName2" for the second output terminal is not listed.

    Recommendation:
    1. Show a queued input terminal on Figure 8-1.
    2. List all the terminal names, identifying which are the names of input terminals and which of output terminals (if possible, use better names, too).
