MOF26 — CMOF should not itnore visibilities

  • Key: MOF26-16
  • Legacy Issue Number: 8997
  • Status: open  
  • Source: International Business Machines ( Mr. Jim Amsden)
  • Summary:

    Constraint [7] in section 14.3 of the MOF2 specification says that visibilities will be ignored, everything is assumed to be public, and name classes are possible and should be avoided. This constraint also appears in section 12.4 EMOF Constraints, constraint [4]. This is necessary for EMOF because it does not support package import or visibility. However, CMOF, which is based on InfrastructureLibrary Constructs does support both package import, namespace visibility, and visibility kind. It is not clear why CMOF would define visibility and then introduce a rule to ignore it. Perhaps this rule should be relaxed.
