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

  • Key: PSSM_-6
  • Status: closed  
  • 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.

  • Disposition: Deferred — PSSM 1.0
  • Disposition Summary:


    This is the result of a bug in the Papyrus tooling used to generate the diagrams. Since the notation currently in the specification is still clear, if not entirely correct, the FTF proposes to defer the resolution of this issue until a fix is available for Papyrus.
