EXPRESS11 — Conflicting compositions involving ParametricElement

  • Key: EXPRESS11-11
  • Legacy Issue Number: 19039
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Thematix Partners LLC ( Mr. Edward J. Barkmeyer)
  • Summary:

    In clause 8.14, diagram 8.15, ParametricElement is shown as being contained in two composite associations – the inherited NamedElement.namespace and ParametricElement.source. Further the possible actual Classes that can be ElementSources are not Scopes, so the .source relationship cannot be a redefinition of NamedElement.namespace. ElementSource.type-parameters should not be a composite relationship. In EXPRESS terms, the Scope of the ParametricElement tag is the Scope of the ElementSource, and not the ElementSource itself; the ElementSource is just the definition point. The derived relationship .namespace in the diagram really is the containment relationship.

  • Disposition: Resolved — EXPRESS 1.1
  • Disposition Summary:

    The relationship to ElementSource is erroneously shown as composite. The diagram will be corrected, and the text is clarified.
