UMLR — Complete and Covering are Synonyms and used confusinginly

  • Key: UMLR-620
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Change Vision ( Michael Chonoles)
  • Summary:

    7This is a complaint about the fact the complete and covering are synonyms. and are clearly defined as synonyms
    isCovering is used in the metamodel in 9.7.2/9.7.3

    However, in table 9.1 the notational term is Complete/incomplete.

    Having the synonyms only adds confusion and lowers the professionalism of the spec. If a user modeled a generalization as IsCovering=True, would that be wrong?

    This will be confusing to students taking the UML Certification exams.
