IPMFSSF — Suggestion to make existing connection bi-directional

  • Key: IPMFSSF-2
  • Legacy Issue Number: 19553
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Object Management Group ( Jason Smith)
  • Summary:

    On behalf of Gilles Malfreyt, Thales Group:

    p.15: Associations "members" from Perspective and from Category to PatternDefinition seem redundant with the fact that InterpatternRelationship already has an association with PatternDefinition [p.6]: wouldn't it be better to make this existing association bi-navigable?

  • Disposition: Closed; No Change — IPMSS 1.0
  • Disposition Summary:

    The bi-navigable relationship would lose an important aspect of Perspectives and Categories as independent views into a repository of IPMSS definitions. A Category is a 'kind of' grouping for PatternDefinitions. A Perspective is a 'stakeholder view' grouping for PatternDefinitions. The MITRE folks asked for this distinction to allow for a more flexible way of presenting patterns catalogs to stakeholders who may have vastly different expectations of how to 'slice' Categories.
