SACM — Eliminate or change name of “EffectiveTime"

  • Key: SACM-7
  • Legacy Issue Number: 16296
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: MITRE ( Samuel Redwine)
  • Summary:

    "EffectiveTime" is not an obvious term. This class might be best eliminated and its subclasses have TimingProperty as their superclass, or a more understandable name should be used.

  • Disposition: Resolved — SACM 1.0b2
  • Disposition Summary:

    Change text of section 13.2.2, page 58, from
    EffectiveTime element is an abstract class that corresponds to effective time interval
    associated with the owner element. This element was added for readability purposes.
    into
    EffectiveTime element represents various compound statements that involve a certain
    time interval during which a certain proposition is asserted to be true (time-dependent
    assertions involving an "effective" time period).
    Change text of the semantics section on page 58 from:
    Semantics
    EffectiveTime element represents a property of the owner EvidenceElement object or
    EvidenceAttribute object. This element is an abstract class that establishes a relationship
    between the owner object and the detailed of the effective time interval of the owner
    object, defined by a particular concrete subclass of the TimingProperty element.
    into
    Semantics
    EffectiveTime element represents a statement about the subject EvidenceElement (an
    object that owns the instance of one of the concrete subclasses of this element). The
    EffectiveTime element specifies a time interval associated with the subject, during which
    the subject is asserted to be "effective". For example, in case of an EvidenceAssertion or
    a FormalAssertion, this element specifies a time interval at which the corresponding
    statement is asserted to be true. In case on am EvidenceItem this element specifies the
    relevant time context in which the element shall be considered.
