EAI — The relationship of EAILink to FCMDataLink and FCMControlLink

  • Key: EAI-53
  • Legacy Issue Number: 4868
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Model Driven Solutions ( Ed Seidewitz)
  • Summary:

    Document: UML Profile and Interchange Models for EAI
    Section: 6.3.2 (EAILink)

    Description:
    This section implies that for any EAILink, there will really be THREE FCM links. The EAILink itself (an FCMTerminalToTerminalLink), an associated FCMDataLink and and associated FCMControlLink. The EAILink and the DataLink, in particular, seem redundant.

    Recommendation:
    Since, conceptually, an EAILink is primarily a data link, it seems appropriate to make EAILink a child of FCMDataLink, rather than a direct child of FCMTerminalToTerminalLink. Then only one additional link, the FCMControlLink, is needed. This is less heavyweight and fits the conception of an EAILink as a data link that also implies a control link.
