MOF24 — Section 9.1: paragraph needs clarification

  • Key: MOF24-27
  • Legacy Issue Number: 13127
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Model Driven Solutions ( Cory Casanave)
  • Summary:

    The following paragrph is not stated clearly and can cause an improper interpretation of the MOF object model: Class Element is the superclass of all model elements in MOF, and is the superclass of all instances of MOF model elements. Each element can access its metaClass in order to obtain a Class that provides a reflective description of that element. By having both MOF and instances of MOF be rooted in class Element, MOF supports any number of meta layers as described in Chapter 7, “MOF Architecture.” A better way to say it may be: Class Element is the superclass of all classes defined in MOF, and is a superclass of the metaclass of all MOF model elements. Each element can access its metaClass in order to obtain a Class that provides a reflective description of that element. By having both MOF and instances of MOF be rooted in class Element, MOF supports any number of meta layers as described in Chapter 7, “MOF Architecture.”
