Legacy Issue Number: 1391
Summary: 3. Another major concern is the way that Responsibilities hardly figure in these
documents. They are shown as a tagged value of Classifier and that is all.
On page 156 a responsibility is defined as a contract. This is incorrect.
The two are linked but in no-one"s responsibility and contract model
(e.g. Wirfs-Brock, Meyer) are the two the same.
Responsibilities are not even in the Index.
I believe that a standard metamodel should be equally usable for a
responsibility-driven modelling approach as for a use case or data driven
approach. The lack of good support for responsibilities (which is not that
hard - we have done it in OML as an extension of UML - see paper in <<UML>>"98
Conference proceedings) is a significant drawback to the adoption of UML
by organizations using any type of responsibility-driven method.
