XMI12 — propose a new tag to be applied to metamodels

  • Key: XMI12-13
  • Legacy Issue Number: 4900
  • Status: open  
  • Source: 88solutions ( Pete Rivett)
  • Summary:

    If we haven't already I think we need to propose a new tag to be applied to
    metamodels which will contain the URI for the namespace (as opposed to the
    namespace name which is given by the existing tag xmi.namespace).
    e.g. xmi.namespaceURI

    Two main reasons for doing this:
    a) automated generation of the DTD/schema for standards
    b) (and more importantly) allow instance documents to be generated with the
    right URI (which is obviously important) - without implementations having to
    hardcode a value or guess (which is what they have to do currently).
