XMI 1.2 MAILINGLIST Avatar
  1. OMG Issue

XMI12 — Editorial: remove unnecessary hitorical references.

  • Key: XMI12-71
  • Legacy Issue Number: 3879
  • Status: open  
  • Source: DSTC ( Stephen Crawley)
  • Summary:

    The XMI 1.1 specification contains numerous references to the way that
    things
    used to be in XMI 1.0, scattered throughout the document. For example,
    on page 6-55, we see:

    "xmi.uuidref: This attibute is no longer used in XMI 1.1. In XMI
    1.0, its
    use is described in the following paragraph".

    It is not normal for OMG specs to include this kind of material.
    Unless
    there is a good reason for retaining it, it should be removed.

    The only justification for this kind of material is if there is a
    converted effort to maintain backwards compatibility; e.g. the CORBA
    core describes multiple versions of the IIOP formats.
