EXPRESS_ — Scope of Attribute is not modeled

  • Key: EXPRESS_-31
  • Legacy Issue Number: 13673
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Thematix Partners LLC ( Mr. Edward J. Barkmeyer)
  • Summary:

    In, AssociationEnd: of-entity, the text of the Note defines an unmodeled (derived) association that subsets the TypeElement.namespace association for Attribute. And the /owning-entity association end depicted in Figure 12 is not that association, since the inverse relationship defined in (EntityType::attributes) includes the attributes of subtypes.
    As a consequence, the association that defines the namespace/scope of the Attribute as a TypeElement is not actually modeled.
    Proposed Resolution:
    Model the derived association: :of-entity->declared-in as ":namespace" explicitly in Figure 12 and in, and show it as subsets TypeElement:namespace.

  • Disposition: Resolved — EXPRESS 1.0
  • Disposition Summary:

    The derived namespace association should be explicitly modeled for Attribute, essentially as indicated in the issue statement..
