UML241 — No unambiguous way in UML 2.4 to serialize StructuredActivityNode

  • Key: UML241-47
  • Legacy Issue Number: 16232
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: NASA ( Dr. Maged Elaasar)
  • Summary:

    We just recently had discussion with Ed about an issue with Activity::node and Activity::group. Both are composite non-derived properties and it causes problems with all StructuredActivityNodes, which are ActivityNodes and ActivityGroups at the same time.
    MagicDraw or Eclipse implementation of UML does not allow to own the same element in two composites , even if owner element is the same.
    Does XMI support that?

    So, ExpansionRegion or any other StructuredActivityNode appears in Activity::group only.

    fUML spec/engine expects to find them in Activity::node , as all owned nodes should be there.

    Any suggestions? Don't you think we should fix that somehow?
