UPDM2 — UPDM stereotype name conflict

  • Key: UPDM2-25
  • Legacy Issue Number: 17329
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Model Driven Solutions ( Mr. Ed Seidewitz)
  • Summary:

    Specification: Unified Profile for DoDAF and MODAF (UPDM), Version 2.0 (formal/2012-01-03)

    Subclause: Organization

    The profile UPDM L1::UPDM L0::DoDAF::OperationalElements::Structure::Organizational defines a stereotype Organization that specializes ActualOrganization from UPDM L1::UPDM L0::Core::OperationalElements::Structure::Organizational::Actual. There is also a stereotype called Organization defined in UPDM L1::UPDM L0::Core::OperationalElements::Structure::Organizational::Typical.

    This is the only case within the UPDM profile as a whole in which there are two stereotypes with the same simple name. While this does not cause any problem from a technical UML point of view, since the stereotypes are in different UML namespaces, it does have implications for the XMI serialization of UPDM models. Since stereotype applications use the XMI namespace for a profile to disambiguate stereotype names, not UML namespaces, having this one naming conflict makes it impossible to use a single XMI namespace for the UPDM profile and all its subprofiles.

    The DoDAF Organization stereotype does not add any functional capabilities over the Core ActualOrganization stereotype. It would therefore simplify the serialization of UPDM models, by allowing the use of a single XMI namespace, if the Organization stereotype was simply deleted from DoDAF and the ActualOrganization stereotype from Core was used instead in DoDAF models.
