MARTE — allocatedTo and allocatedFrom properties should not be derived

  • Key: MARTE-118
  • Legacy Issue Number: 11873
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: THALES ( Sebastien Demathieu)
  • Summary:

    Subject: In chapter 12, Details: The concept of allocation in MARTE is quite generic. Any UML::NamedElement can be used as allocation end. That enables the use of allocations in various kind of diagrams, for multiple purposes (e.g., structural, behavioural allocation.) In the current specification, allocations are supported by three stereotypes: Allocate, ApplicationAllocationEnd and ExecutionPlaformAllocationEnd. The allocatedTo and allocatedFrom properties of ApplicationAllocationEnd and ExecutionPlaformAllocationEnd are derived from the UML::Abstraction that is stereotyped as Allocate. However, creating an abstraction (i.e., a dependency) between two elements, implies that these elements belong to the same diagram, which is not always the case. Moreover, it limits the use of allocation to specific diagram types (e.g., not all the UML modeling tools allow the use of dependency on composite structures). Proposed correction: 1) Do not considerer allocatedTo and allocatedFrom as derived properties and allow end users to directly make use of the ApplicationAllocationEnd and ExecutionPlaformAllocationEnd stereoypes to express allocations. 2) Identify mechanisms to allow a characterisation of this allocation (allocation kind, allocation nature) the way its done in the Allocate stereotype.
