XMI12 — Status of pseudo-code in Chapter 7

  • Key: XMI12-75
  • Legacy Issue Number: 3863
  • Status: open  
  • Source: DSTC ( Stephen Crawley)
  • Summary:

    It is not clear whether or not the pseudo-code and accompanying text in
    7.2.2, 7.2.3 and so on is intended to be normative.

    Chapter 7.1 states in the second paragraph:

    "... In XMI 1.1, these rule sets are stated formally in EBNF. The
    pseudo-code that was used to state these rules in XMI 1.0 remains
    for reference and explanatory value."

    This implies that the pseudo-code is non-normative. But it doesn't say
    so clearly.

    It is necessary to clarify this point in order to decide how to deal
    with the (numerous) inconsistencies between the EBNF and the
    pseudo-code.
