IPMFSSF — Clarification needed on 'Element' ownership of Property, or 'metaclass of Element' ownership of Property

  • Key: IPMFSSF-9
  • Legacy Issue Number: 19560
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: THALES ( Olivier Constant)
  • Summary:

    On behalf of Olivier Constant, Thales Group:

    p.11. Figure 5, a note states "Element must own Property". This implies that the Element be a MOF::Class/DataType/Association/Extension. What is really meant, according to my understanding, is "Metaclass of Element must own Property". A similar issue arises in section 10.11 in the description of PropertyToRole::from.

  • Disposition: Resolved — IPMSS 1.0
  • Disposition Summary:

    MOF hierarchy false implication needs to be clarified. The intent was not that a MOF::Element contain a MOF::Property, as that limits the relationship to a certain subset of MOF classes. Instead, a metaclass was intended. The text in Figure 5, Sections 10.11 and 10.2 needs to be changed to reflect this.
