XMI 1.2 MAILINGLIST Avatar
  1. OMG Issue

XMI12 — The UML and MOF DTD appendices are poor examples.

  • Key: XMI12-73
  • Legacy Issue Number: 3881
  • Status: open  
  • Source: DSTC ( Stephen Crawley)
  • Summary:

    Section 6.11 of the XMI 1.1 spec deals with the UML DTDs generated using
    XMI. Appendix A contains the complete UML 1.1 DTD. Appendix B contains
    the MOF 1.1 DTD.

    If this hasn't happened already, responsibility for these DTDs should
    be transferred to the their respective RTFs. The MOF and UML DTDs
    should be removed from the XMI spec.

    In my opinion, the UML and MOF DTDs are both too large to be good
    examples
    for XMI. We should come up with a set of smaller examples that
    illustrate
    how XMI works with complex meta-models, and how you use the various
    "bells
    and whistles" for tailoring the XMI mappings.
