UMLR — Inconsistent use of unspecified and unlimited for the multiplicity notation

  • Key: UMLR-788
  • Status: open  
  • Source: ACM ( Christophe THIERRY)
  • Summary:

    The first paragraph p.35 states: << A multiplicity with zero as the lower bound and an unspecified upper bound may use the alternative notation containing a single star “” instead of “0..” multiplicity. >>
    The use of the term "unspecified upper bound" is not consistent with the sentence found 3 paragraphs above (on p.34): << The star character is used as part of a multiplicity specification to represent an unlimited upper bound. >> nor with the specification of the semantics related to this notation (on top of p.34): << A MultiplicityElement is unlimited if its upperBound has the UnlimitedNatural value of unlimited (“*”) >>.
    Solution: replace "unspecified upper bound" with "unlimited upper bound" in that sentence.
