UML14 — Inconsistent use of stereotypes, tagged values, and metamodel

  • Key: UML14-789
  • Legacy Issue Number: 1226
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    Summary: The use of stereotypes, tagged values and metamodel subclassing is not
    consistent in the metamodel. For instance, subclassing is used when
    defining
    the states specific to Activity Models, though the subclasses
    (ActivityState, ActionState) have no specific attributes and could have
    been
    stereotypes. The same with the subclasses of Action. Both approaches are
    correct, but since the two mechanisms are not orthogonal, there should
    be
    stated explicitly when to use one and when to use the other.
