MOFM2T11 — Wrong concrete syntax (in EBNF)

  • Key: MOFM2T11-13
  • Legacy Issue Number: 19668
  • Status: open  
  • Source: THALES ( Virginie Watine)
  • Summary:

    The concrete syntax as expressed in this chapter is full of errors

    1) It is a pity that it is not using the same EBNF idiom as other OMG specifications that were written before (e.g. IDL)

    2) It is a pity that the idiom selected is not consistantly applied (e.g. [...] or (...)? to describe an option - both are used sometimes even in the same rule)

    3) there are many literals that are missing their enclosing <> (e.g. extend_decl instead of <extend_decl>)

    4) there are some missing text separators (' here)

    5) and some typos such as Expession instead of Expression

    6) many (11) missing definitions

    7) the formatting of the whole section is weird, all in courier font, weird spacing... (a raw cut and paste?)
