SYSML11 — NestedConnectorEnd multiplicity typo in Fig 8.5

  • Key: SYSML11-125
  • Legacy Issue Number: 12377
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Georgia Institute of Technology ( Russell Peak)
  • Summary:

    There appears to be a typographical error in Fig 8.5 re: the multiplicity of a NestedConnectorEnd propertyPath. This figure says [2..*], whereas Section 8.3.2.6 says [1..*]. === Specifics: In the SysML 1.0 document (formal/2007-09-01), Fig 8.5 entitled "Abstract syntax extensions for SysML connector ends" shows this for NestedConnectorEnd: - propertyPath: Property [2..*] (ordered) However, Section 8.3.2.6 NestedConnectorEnd has a different multiplicity: - propertyPath: Property [1..*] (ordered) Section 8.3.2.6 seems to be the correct version, as it provides further explanation including stating "The connector end property is not included in the propertyPath list, but instead is held by the role property of the UML ConnectorEnd metaclass.", which is consistent with a multiplicity of [1..*]. The severity of this issue is deemed "Significant" because tool implementations that follow the figure versus ones that follow the section text (which has already occurred) will be incompatible. === Proposed Resolution: Change the multiplicity in Fig 8.5 from [2..*] to [1..*].
