EAI — Adapters are called operators in the profile but not the metamodel

  • Key: EAI-98
  • Legacy Issue Number: 5245
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Model Driven Solutions ( Ed Seidewitz)
  • Summary:

    Document: UML Profile and Interchange Models for EAI
    Sections: 8.3.6 (Source Adapters), 8.3.7 (Target Adapters), 8.3.8 (Call Adapters), 8.3.9 (Request/Reply Adapters)

    Description:
    Sections 8.3.6 to 8.3.9 describe adapters as kinds of operators. However, in Sections 6.3.11.1 through 6.3.11.4, the corresponding metamodel elements are NOT defined as subclasses of EAIOperator, but rather are directly subclasses of FCMFunction. (Actually, in Section 6.3.11.4, EAIRequestReplyAdapter actually is diagrammed as a subclass of EAIPrimitiveOperator, but it is described in the text as being a subclass of FCMCommand and should probably really be a subclass of FCMFunction like the other adapters – see Issue 4859). This would seem to indicate that adapters are NOT operators, since not all their terminals are EAITerminals.

    Recommendation:
    Do not describe adapters as operators. Move the description of adapters out of Section 8.3 on operators.
