MOF24 — Bad description of set()

  • Key: MOF24-71
  • Legacy Issue Number: 15646
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Adaptive ( Pete Rivett)
  • Summary:

    In section 9.1 the description of the exceptions refer to ‘element’ instead of ‘object’ as the parameter.

    And the whole section needs clarification of null e.g. does C.isInstance(null) = true for any class or datatype?

  • Disposition: Resolved — MOF 2.4
  • Disposition Summary:

    Agreed. Correct the operation signature to return Boolean.
    C.isInstance(null) should return false at all time. Null is not a valid classifier and
    violates the constrains of UML::Type on which MOF::Reflection::Type is based.
