SYSML13 — Claify partWithPort vs. NestedConnectorEnd

  • Key: SYSML13-18
  • Legacy Issue Number: 16045
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Thematix Partners LLC ( Roger Burkhart)
  • Summary:

    Add a constraint to Section NestedConnectorEnd that the stereotype is applied only to connector ends that violate Constraint [3] of Section 9.3.6 Connector in the UML Superstructure specification. Replace the existing Constraint [4] of NestedConnectorEnd (that the partWithPort property must be must be equal to the property at the last position of the propertyPath list) with a constraint that partWithPort must be empty for any ConnectorEnd to which the stereotype is applied. Also, add clarifications to the SysML specification to make it explicit that SysML goes beyond extending UML entirely by UML stereotypes by also removing an existing constraint of the UML metamodel.

  • Disposition: Resolved — SysML 1.3
  • Disposition Summary:

    Remove Constraint [4] of NestedConnectorEnd so that partWithPort can
    continue to be set in accordance with constraints 1-4 of Section 9.3.7
    (ConnectorEnd) in the UML Superstructure specification.
    Also correct wording to refer to the connector end itself rather than the
    ConnectorEnd metaclass, as suggested by issues 15918 and 15984. Clarify the
    descriptive text under propertyPath stereotype property that contains a similar
    reference to the ConnectorEnd metaclass.
    A separate resolution for issue 12268, "not possible to take away constraints in a
    profile," removes text from Chapter 6 that incorrectly stated that SysML is
    specified entirely by UML 2 specification techniques. Constraint 5 under
    Block already makes clear that SysML removes an existing constraint of the UML
