UML23 — Japan Superstructure PAS Ballot Comments - comment 7

  • Key: UML23-102
  • Legacy Issue Number: 14264
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    GE There are a lot of sentences which start with Metaclass name (in upper case letter) without preceding letter. In that case, It is difficult to distinguish Metaclass name from general term.

    Clarify their usages through the entire specification. When sentence starts with metaclass name, put certain preceding letter, for example article, and make it distinguishable.

  • Disposition: Resolved — UML 2.3
  • Disposition Summary:

    Context is often required to distinguish use of names - sometimes the name means both the metaclass and the common meaning of the term. Ideally, the spec should have notational conventions for these and follow them, but this would be too large an undertaking to incorporate into version 2.3 of UML. Leave Issue open for consideration in future Revisions.
