UML 1.4 NO IDEA Avatar
  1. OMG Issue


  • Key: UML14-956
  • Legacy Issue Number: 2626
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    Summary: "The owners of the copyright in the UML specification version 1.2 [sic, in
    1.3alpha5] hereby grant you a [...] license [...] to create and distribute
    software which is based upon the UML specifications [...]

    Software developed under the terms of this license must include a complete
    implementation of the current version of this specification [...]"

    This appears to say that any UML-based CASE tool must implement the whole
    of the standard. Since as far as I"m aware no existing tool, including
    Rational Rose, comes even close to doing this, should not the restriction
    be changed? (I do not suggest that it should be enforced!)
