UTP12 — Integration of TTCN-3 template modification

  • Key: UTP12-25
  • Legacy Issue Number: 16878
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Fraunhofer FOKUS ( Mr. Marc-Florian Wendland)
  • Summary:

    This issue is probably coupled with (at least related with issue #15941 http://www.omg.org/issues/uml-testing-profile-rtf.open.html#Issue15941) and targets a more convenient handling of UML instance specifications for test modeling to avoid redundancy.

    TTCN-3 offer quite efficient and proven concepts to exploit already defined/created instance specifications (called template in TTCN-3). The concept is called "modifies" and allows the derivation of new templates by reusing existing templates.

    See Clause 15.5 of TTCN-3 core specification (ETSI ES 201 873-1 V4.2.1) for further information.

  • Disposition: Resolved — UTP 1.2
  • Disposition Summary:

    UML is very inflexible with regard to the reuse of already modeled InstanceSpecifications. This may be caused by the fact that concrete data and InstanceSpecifications are rather pertinent and more used in testing than in other system development. However, the RTF agreed on having a dedicated concept in UTP that allows tester to exploit already existing InstanceSpecifications in order to defined large sets of complex data by avoiding redundancy. Therefore, UTP will get a new and very important, yet useful concept called Modification that resembles the modifies concept of TTCN-3.
