UMLR — Comments not annotating anything should annotate their owner

  • Key: UMLR-765
  • Status: open  
  • Source: oose Innovative Informatik eG ( Mr. Axel Scheithauer)
  • Summary:

    Comments have an owner and may annotate Elements. If the list of annotated Elements is empty, I think the only interpretation can be, that the Comment is implicitely annotating its owner. This should get clarified.

    Current specification:

    Every kind of Element may own Comments. The ownedComments for an Element add no semantics but may represent information useful to the reader of the model.

    add following sentences:

    A comment may annotate any number of elements. If the list of annotated elements is empty, it means that it is annotating its owner.
