UML14 — Responsibilities hardly figure in these documents

  • Key: UML14-860
  • Legacy Issue Number: 1391
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    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.
