MOF 2.4 RTF Avatar
  1. OMG Issue

MOF24 — Annex A refers to non-existing CMOF file

  • Key: MOF24-28
  • Legacy Issue Number: 13444
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Adaptive ( Gene Mutschler)
  • Summary:

    Annex A (which is normative), refers to the availability of the XMI for CMOF in the OMG document ptc/04-10-17. However, this document is not available at the OMG web site (at least not as a publicly available, searchable document). The annex being normative and the spec being publicly available, it would follow that a referenced ptc document would be publicly available. Without an available normative XMI for CMOF, it is not possible to produce a conforming implementation of it. I tried the MOF2.cmof file in the non-normative zip file (document 03-04-08). However, this file is not usable, as it has several errors and missing information.

  • Reported: MOF 2.0 — Wed, 4 Feb 2009 05:00 GMT
  • Disposition: Resolved — MOF 2.4
  • Disposition Summary:

    The lack of this document was caused by structural problems in the UML 2.0 metamodel on which MOF 2.0 was based – which meant that UML 2.0 itself had no XMI file.
    The normative XMI file will be produced for this revision of MOF and referenced from Annex A.
