EAI — specifiedReplyToTerminal" and "specifiedExceptionTarget" associations

  • Key: EAI-55
  • Legacy Issue Number: 4874

  • Summary:

    Document: UML Profile and Interchange Models for EAI
    Section: 6.3.4 (EAIMessageContent)

    Description:
    The derived associations for "specifiedReplyToTerminal" and "specifiedExceptionTarget" are included in the metamodel to capture the "requirement that EAIHeader should specify the information required to locate replyTo and exceptionTarget terminals". However, this is dynamic instance state information that form part of the semantics of the EAIHeader, not its specification. It is thus not appropriate in the metamodel, since this results in corresponding elements in the DTD, even though it is not the intent that this information ever be provided in the SPECIFICATION of an EAIHeader (which is, after all, what is being modeled and interchanged in the XMI).

    Recommendation:
    The metamodel is a syntactic model, not a semantic model. The "specifiedReplyToTerminal" and "specifiedExceptionTarget" associations should be removed.
