EXPRESS_ — Attribute:attribute-type is not a DataType

  • Key: EXPRESS_-68
  • Legacy Issue Number: 13899
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Thematix Partners LLC ( Mr. Edward J. Barkmeyer)
  • Summary:

    In clause, the Definition of attribute-type says "represents the required DataType... The DataType is required to be ...".
    What is intended here is "data type" – the general concept – not DataType, which is a class in the metamodel, and it is the wrong one.

    Also, the second sentence could be less cryptic. When the Attribute is defined within the scope of an Algorithm, the attribute-type can be an ActualType. When the Attribute is an "abstract attribute", it's nominal attribute-type is always a GeneralizedType.
