  • Summary:

    [Alloc: Profile] The MARTE allocation concept aimed to refine the SysML allocation concept. Furthermore, it seems that the idea was to not be dependent on SysML by re-defining the same concepts in the MARTE context. For this reason, MARTE uses the same names for the generic stereotypes (<<allocated>> and <<allocate>>). However, there is a limitation in the MARTE <<allocated>> stereotype that does not allow modelers to have the same capabilities. More precisely, when using the <<allocated>> stereotype, we cannot refers to the target and source ends. We are forced to use the more specialized stereotypes: <<ApplicationAllocationEnd>> and <<ExecutionPlatformAllocationEnd>>, which is not always practical (the annotation process requires to pollute the target model) or is not always what modelers want to allocate (physical-logical allocation, or others support by SysML). So, I’d suggest to add properties: /allocatedFrom:NamedElement[*] and /allocatedTo:NamedElement[*] for the stereotype: <<Allocated>.

  • Disposition: Resolved — MARTE 1.0b2
  • Disposition Summary:

    Add the proposed property in the stereotype Allocated to maintain compatibility with SysML. Replace Figure 12.3 and the description text accordingly. If the property allocatedTo and allocatedFrom are already defined in the stereotype Allocated, they need not be redefined in the specialized stereotypes (ApplicationAllocationEnd and ExecutionPlatformExecutionEnd). Thus, these two stereotypes can be replaced by a mere attribute of type AllocationEndKind.
    All figures where either the stereotype ExecutionPlatformExecutionEnd or ApplicationAllocationEnd were displayed have been replaced by a new Figure with the new notation.
    No concept is introduced or removed. It is just a different lighter way to implement the domain model so as to be consistently compatible with the SysML allocation.
    The revised text assumes that resolution 12214 will be resolved by referring to sources of an allocation as clients and to targets as suppliers.
