MOF14 — MOF 1.3 Package should subtype Classifier

  • Key: MOF14-6
  • Legacy Issue Number: 3448
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Google ( Don Baisley)
  • Summary:

    In the MOF 1.3 Specification, a Package is not a subtype of Classifier. But
    an M2 package does have M1 instances (package extent objects), and the M2
    Package defines the type of those M1 objects. Therefore, a Package really
    is a Classifier. It is a type. It can be thought of as a component type,
    and in that sense a Package should be able to contain behavioral features.
    Also, an attribute type that is a Package should be treated as a pointer to
    a package extent object.

    Recommendation: make Package a subtype of Classifier, or fold Classifier
    into GeneralizableElement.
