UMLR — Deploying a «deployment spec» has no explicit interpretation

  • Key: UMLR-657
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Change Vision ( Michael Chonoles)
  • Summary:

    In figure 19.6 "DeploymentSpecifications related to the DeployedArtifacts that they parameterize."
    there is a «deployment spec» with a dependency replacement to an «artifact», but there is a «deployment spec» that is contained with no relationship to anything. The possible interpretation for the later containment is that it is A) a physical containment, B) a deployment (as with the other contained artifacts), or C) a "configuration" of the deployment of the containing artifact, ShoppingApp.ear.

    Problem 1) There is not sufficient guidance to choose about A,B,C or something else
    Problem 2) The parameterization referred to in the diagram title is not justifiable. If interpretation C) is intended, which is my guess, the title should be have parameterize-->configure, so that a new term is not introduced. Even if C) is not intended, the title should be changed.
