MARTE — Section: Annex A: AADL-like models with MARTE -- issue 2

  • Key: MARTE-95
  • Legacy Issue Number: 11849
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: THALES ( Madeleine Faugere)
  • Summary:

    The use of UML native concepts for some of the AADL constructs should be revised from a pragmatic viewpoint. For instance: a) The use of pure state machines to model AADL operational modes is sometimes insufficient. In the examples provided in MARTE (p.376; ptc/07-08-04), the relationship between a system configuration (modelled by a Collaboration) and a State specifying a Mode, is reflected by the “Name”. I.e., there is no an explicit association between both. It seems that providing a “Mode” stereotype in MARTE, with an appropriate relationship with other modelling elements could be very useful. This would facilitate model extraction/transformation when different kinds of state machines exist in a UML model. The relation between The AADL concepts of “mode transition” and “mode transition trigger” and UML state machines elements should be clarified. b) AADL Flows and EndToEndFlows are modelled by UML Activity diagrams. However, there is already the EndToEndFlow concept in MARTE (SAM chapter), which encloses the same semantics, and furthermore, provides a set of attributes (stereotype properties) that match with the AADL ones (e.g., end-to-end deadline, end to end time). The use of MARTE EndToEndFlows should be evaluated
