  1. OMG Issue

XMI12 — XMI MOF Subset" optional compliance point.

  • Key: XMI12-63
  • Legacy Issue Number: 3889
  • Status: open  
  • Source: DSTC ( Stephen Crawley)
  • Summary:

    This compliance point (11.3.1) is worrying. It means that a compliant
    XMI implementation may be capable of transmitting/receiving metadata
    described by a legal and meaningful MOF meta-model. For example, the
    MOF Model itself has a number of References where the Reference's name
    and the corresponding AssociationEnd have different names. Thus, XMI
    support for the MOF Model is optional. This is in violation of the
    XMI RFP requirements, and contradicts the intention of other parts of
    the spec.

    I suggest that the MOF and XMI RTFs jointly review the listed "optional"
    MOF features in 11.3.1 with a view to either making them mandatory in
    XMI, or removing them from the MOF Model in MOF 1.4.
