EAI — Missing constraints on the input terminal of an EAITargetAdapter

  • Key: EAI-67
  • Legacy Issue Number: 4947
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Model Driven Solutions ( Mr. Ed Seidewitz)
  • Summary:

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

    In subsequent sections on adapters and operators, references are made to the "name" of a terminal. However, an FCMTerminal does not have a name (see Figure 6-2) and no name attribute is given for EAITerminal in Section 6.3.3 (see Figure 6-8). (Actually, a name attribute is shown for EAITerminal in some later diagrams, such as Figure 6-16 and Figures 6-20 and later.)

    Conceivably, the name of an FCMTerminal could be given by the name of languageElement of the FCMParameter represented by the FCMTerminal (via the association given in Section 6-6), and this could be defined as a derived attribute of FCMTerminal. However, it is not clear that this makes sense for an EAITerminal, because the status of the languageElement associated with an EAIParameter is questionable (see previous issue). Therefore, it seems simpler to have an explicit name attribute for EAITerminals and leave FCMTerminals unnamed (unless the FCM is separately updated to add names to FCMTerminals).
