ESSENCE — Attribute “approach” on Activities should be promoted to a first class citizen

  • Key: ESSENCE-177
  • Legacy Issue Number: 19116
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Ivar Jacobson International AB ( Michael Striewe)
  • Summary:

    Problem to be solved:

    It is currently not possible to attach resources, patterns or anything else to approaches or refer to approaches in patterns, as they are a plain string attribute of Activities instead of being a language element.

    This makes it difficult to complement an approach with step-by-step instructions, scripts, tool mentors, examples or any other forms of guidance.

    Proposed solution:

    Replace attribute “approach” on langage element “Activity” by a new language element “Approach” (direct subclass of “LanguageElement”) with attribute “name” of type String. Add an association from “Activity” to “Approach” with multiplicity 1..* at the “Approach” end.
