XMI12 — DTD generation rules for composed Packages.

  • Key: XMI12-68
  • Legacy Issue Number: 3882
  • Status: open  
  • Source: DSTC ( Stephen Crawley)
  • Summary:

    The DTD generation rules do not adequately cover Package importing,
    clustering and inheritance.

    1) There are no references to clustering anywhere in the DTD
    generation rules.

    2) There are allusions to the XMI.import element in Chapter 6 but no
    proper explanation of how it is used. Other points need to be
    clarified. For example, I can't work out how the DTDs allow you
    to represent an instance of metamodel Class which has an Attribute
    whose type is an imported Class.

    3) Package inheritance seems to be covered in the EBNF for DTD
    generation and the corresponding pseudo-code. However, the
    terminology is loose; e.g. refering to "Packages from which
    this Package is derived" without stating whether "derived"
    refers to the MOF::Model::Generalizes association.
