MOF14 — MOF RTF Isue: Conflict between "Facility" and "Package Object "

  • Key: MOF14-62
  • Legacy Issue Number: 1505
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    Summary: There is a major conflict between the "Facility" Package
    described in Section 4 and the M1-level object model expressed in
    Section 7. Section 4 defines a concept of a "model repository",
    embodied by the Facility::ModelRepository class, as the boundary for
    M1-level associations and classifier level state. Indeed, this seems
    to be the main purpose of Facility::ModelRepository instances. On the
    other hand, the IDL mapping in Section 7 defines the M1-level
    <package-name>Package interface with the primary purpose of providing
    this boundary. [Section 5 is ambiguous.] This overlap in purpose and
    functionality is causing confusion, and is obscuring the need for
    standardisation of something to provide a container and a directory
    for a set of (possibly unrelated) models and meta-models.
