FUML15 — Annex on normative XMI for fUML

  • Key: FUML15-1
  • Legacy Issue Number: 14979
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Model Driven Solutions ( Mr. Ed Seidewitz)
  • Summary:

    Specification: Semantics of a Foundational Subset for Executable UML Models, FTF Beta 2 (ptc/09-10-05)

    The specification should have an annex describing the normative serialization of the fUML syntax, semantics and foundational library models, similar to Annexes G and H of the UML 2.3 superstructure specification.

  • Disposition: Closed; No Change — FUML 1.5
  • Disposition Summary:

    Annex is no longer necessary

    At the time this issue was submitted, the fUML abstract syntax metamodel was technically distinct from the UML abstract syntax. However, the intent was that fUML models would still be serialized using UML XMI. So some further explanation would have been useful.

    However, as of fUML 1.4, the fUML abstract syntax is now formally a true subset of the UML 2.5.1 abstract syntax. So there is no question that a conforming fUML 1.4 model can be serialized using corresponding UML 2.5.1 XMI – since an fUML 1.4 model is a UML 2.5.1 model. So no further explanation is really necessary now.
