SYSML2_ — Various constraints need to take feature chaining into account

  • Key: SYSML2_-108
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Model Driven Solutions ( Mr. Ed Seidewitz)
  • Summary:

    There are a number of cases in which derived properties require that a referenced feature by of a certain metaclass. For example, the EventOccurrenceUsage::eventOccurrence property is derived as the referencedFeature of the ownedReferenceSubsetting EventOccurrenceUsage (if it has one), but the property is typed as an OccurrenceUsage, so the referencedFeature must be an OccurrenceUsage. This is enforced by the validateEventOccurrenceUsageReference constraint.

    Unfortunately, this does not take feature chaining into account. If the referencedFeature has a feature chain, it will be parsed as a plain Feature, not an OccurrenceUsage. However, the last Feature in the chain should be an OccurrenceUsage, and this OccurrenceUsage is what should be the eventOccurrence of the EventOccurrenceUsage, and what is check by validateEventOccurrenceUsageReference.

    There are similar problems with at least the "reference" derivation and validation constraints for all the subtypes of EventOccurrenceUsage, and perhaps in other cases, too.
