XMI12 — Minor bug / typo in handling of References

  • Key: XMI12-52
  • Legacy Issue Number: 4032
  • Status: open  
  • Source: DSTC ( Stephen Crawley)
  • Summary:

    In the description of ReferenceAsElement in 9.5.5.1 on page 9-218, the
    spec says:

    "When the Reference's multiplicity has an upper bound greater than one
    ... a lower bound of zero, the reference is checked to see if any values
    exist."

    In reality, this check needs to happen >>always<<. Even in the [1..1] case,
    the value may not exist if you are generating XML for an incomplete model.
