UML14 — What level of MOF 2.0 is the metamodel for UML 2.0?

  • Key: UML14-492
  • Legacy Issue Number: 6959
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Object Management Group ( Jon Siegel)
  • Summary:

    UML 2.0 does not state which level of MOF (EMOF, CMOF, or
    whatever else) provides its meta-meta-model. Therefore, there is
    no formal statement defining which Class definition (Basic or
    Constructs package level) and so forth is the basis for the
    definitions in the UML 2.0 specification. UML tools implement
    this class, so it's probably a good idea to know which one it's
    supposed to be. (Proof, in case you're wondering: The names
    EMOF and CMOF do not occur anywhere in the Superstructure
    final adopted specification 03-08-02. The name MOF does, but
    not in the context of which version of MOF defines the
    UML metametamodel.)

    If there is an ambiguity in which it is, the FTF needs to resolve
    it. Once it's resolved ("The metamodel for UML 2.0 is CMOF"), it
    should be stated clearly in the specification.
