SYSML16 — Binding connectors have no keyword syntax in parametric diagrams

  • Key: SYSML16-393
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: oose Innovative Informatik eG ( Mr. Tim Weilkiens)
  • Summary:

    According to table 10.2. a binding connector in a parametric diagram is depicted as a solid line without a keyword.

    Figure E.31 shows a binding connector in a parametric diagram with keyword <<equal>>.

    I propose to remove the keyword in figure E.31 and to add a section below Parametric Diagram to say that the binding connector keyword is not shown in parametric diagrams.

  • Disposition Summary:

    Clarify that binding connectors are depicted without keyword in parametric diagrams

    The diagram elements table for internal block diagrams defines a keyword <<equal>> for binding connectors. The diagram elements table for parametric diagrams defines the notation without a keyword. However, the appendix shows an example of a parametric diagram with a binding connector and keyword <<equal>>.

    Although it is unusual, it is allowed to have both - normal and binding connectors - in a parametric diagram. The binding connector keyword is important to distinguish the connector kinds.

    The diagram elements table 10.2 should depict the binding connector keyword. There is no need to update parametric diagram examples in the specification document, because it is still allowed to discard the keyword (see diagram table of binding connector).
