XMI24 — define a new XSD Type

  • Key: XMI24-109
  • Legacy Issue Number: 11002
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: International Business Machines ( Mr. Petko Chobantonov)
  • Summary:

    It will be useful to define a new XSD Type that can be used for reference properties instead of xmi:Any. The suggested definition is:

    <xsd:complexType name="LinkAttribs" >

    <xsd:attributeGroup ref="xmi:LinkAttribs"/>

  • Disposition: Resolved — XMI 2.4
  • Disposition Summary:

    The text in 4.8.5 describing use of xmi:Any belongs in 4.8.6 for Composites – since only composites have nested elements.
    The suggestion for a new complex type is unnecessary since the Attribute Group linkAttribs already serves that purpose for non-composites.
    Production rule 4e needs to have xmi:Any removed.
    And the presence of min and maxOccurs needs to reflect the specification in the description of the tags in Table 4.1– if not specified they should be set to 0 and unbounded (the default for each is 1).
