UML14 — OCL: Enumeration types

  • Key: UML14-971
  • Legacy Issue Number: 3142
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: OpenModeling ( Jos Warmer)
  • Summary:

    When an enumeration constant is used, it has to be preceded by the
    hash '#' sign. While this is not strictly necessary, it certainly
    makes parsing easier and, therefore, can stand as it is.

    However, the need for the same hash characters in the definition of
    the enumeration types, like in


    { #male, #female }

    is what the OCL grammar currently requires ­ and in this context
    the hash characters should probably be abolished, because:

    • Their presence does not give anything significant to user
      because name conflicts can't happen inside the enumeration type
      definition. Everything inside the curly brackets {} is enumeration
    • Normally, one can try to copy-paste some text between UML and OCL
      parts of the class model. This is made a bit tricky, because UML and
      OCL use
      different syntax for the enumeration types. It would
      be nice of OCL could adopt the UML syntax.
