MIPS — Conformance Requirements

  • Key: MIPS-2
  • Legacy Issue Number: 6618
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Oracle ( John Poole)
  • Summary:

    The CWM MIP Specification should not force implementations to support the entire
    CWM MIP model as a specification conformance point. Rather, implementations should
    be capable of interchanging pattern definitions independently of their capability
    to interchange any metadata that might be described by those patterns. This would
    be an acceptable level of conformance for classes of tools that are focused on
    pattern design activities only.
    Resolution:
    Relax the conformance statement accordingly.
    Revised text:
    2.5 Conformance Points
    An implementation of CWM MIP must minimally provide the InterchangePattern class
    of Figure 2-1, and the following classes of Figure 2-2: PatternConstraint,
    Restriction, BindingParameter, Projection, Semantic Context, and GraphSubset.
    This means that implementations of CWM MIP are allowed to interchange pattern
    models only, without necessarily being required to also support the exchange
    of related pattern instances.
    2.5.1 Optional Conformance Points
    An implementation of CWM MIP may optionally provide the UnitOfInterchange
    class of Figure 2-1, and/or the ModeledSemanticContext and ModeledGraphSubset
    classes of Figure 2-2.
    Action taken:
    Incorporated the above revised text into proposed Available Specfication.
