EAI — Purpose of the CCA Component Library for EAI

  • Key: EAI-47
  • Legacy Issue Number: 4854
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Model Driven Solutions ( Ed Seidewitz)
  • Summary:

    Document: UML Profile and Interchange Metamodel for EAI (ptc/02-02-02)
    Section: 6.5

    Description:
    The purpose of Section 6.5, "CCA Component Library for EAI" is not very clear. The text says that "It is an informational supplement to the EAI integration metamodel.", but I am not sure what this means, since CCA is basically a modeling approach with its own metamodel and profile. Does "informational" mean that this section is not even normative?

    Recommendation:
    The purpose of the CCA Component Library would seem to be to provide a CCA-based modeling notation for the metamodel. In this respect it would seem have a parallel purpose to the Collaboration and Activity Modeling profiles given in Chapters 8 and 9. Therefore, if this library is intended to be normative, then it should be included in Part 3 as a chapter on "CCA Modeling". If it is not intended to be normative, then this section should probably be moved to an appendix.
