MOF 2.6 RTF Avatar
  1. OMG Issue

MOF26 — MOF issue - MOF says nothing about the semantics of operation redefinition

  • Key: MOF26-21
  • Legacy Issue Number: 18811
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Model Driven Solutions ( Mr. Steve Cook)
  • Summary:

    UML uses operation redefinition quite extensively, but MOF says nothing about what this means, and UML itself leaves it rather open – see for example issues 17924 and 15499. UML 2.5 beta leaves it even more open than 2.4.1, which means that MOF needs to be specific for UML to be well-defined.

    My suggestion is that MOF requires parameters in redefined operations to have the same number, type, multiplicity, uniqueness and ordering as the parameters in the operation being redefined.
