ESSENCE12 — Checkpoint should be renamed, proposed rename to "Check"

  • Key: ESSENCE12-8
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Ivar Jacobson International ( Mr. Stefan Bylund)
  • Summary:

    The term "checkpoint" is loaded and used within the software industry to denote high-level checkpoints that is passed between lifecycle milestones and the like.

    Suggest to rename checkpoint to "check" instead.

  • Disposition Summary:

    Retain the term "Checkpoint"

    The term "checkpoint" seems colloquially and technically a better English term for items on a checklist than "check". Further, this would be a backward-incompatible change to the metamodel that would effect more than might be expected, because of the importance of checklists in Essence. Therefore, it changing the term is not considered important enough to warrent the effort of the change.
