PSSM11 — Notation for entry, do and exit behaviors is wrong

  • Key: PSSM11-5
  • Status: open  
  • Source: oose Innovative Informatik eG ( Mr. Axel Scheithauer)
  • Summary:

    The correct notation is for example:

    entry/Activity entry

    All the diagrams in PSSM show instead

    /entry Activity entry

    This is confusing and should get changed.
    Also the text in all examples of the UML specification is left justified. It is not mentioned as a requirement, but I think most tools follow this convention. In the PSSM specification the text is centered. I suggest to change it to left justified.
    The effect of Transitions is notated with a colon:

    /Activity: effect.

    I think that should also be consistent. Either remove the colon, or use it with state behaviors as well.
    As an additional suggestion: In most cases it is not relevant for the test case, that an activity is called. The string "Activity" could be left out to keep the diagram less cluttered.
