SMM11 — Introduce Unit of Measure as a class.

  • Key: SMM11-145
  • Legacy Issue Number: 19457
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Micro Focus ( Larry Hines)
  • Summary:

    Currently DimensionalMeasure has Unit of measure as an attribute with type string. Unit needs to be treated as a first class object and not just indicated by a name. A class need to be introduced for it and the attribute needs to be replaced with an association relating DimensionalMeasure to a Unit. Indication by name leaves open whether “meter”, “Meter” or “metre”. But the object for each would be the same and the case and internationalization would be left to rendering.

  • Disposition: Resolved — SMM 1.1
  • Disposition Summary:

    Replace the "unit" property (string) of DimensionalMeasure, by a "unit" association from DimensionalMeasure to UnitOfMeasure. This will greatly improve re-use and consistency of units, across DimensionalMeasures. Unit conversion can be left to rendering.
