  1. OMG Issue

XMI24 — XMI issue - root elements for XMI Schemas

  • Key: XMI24-3
  • Legacy Issue Number: 15452
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Adaptive ( Mr. Pete Rivett)
  • Summary:

    At the moment every metaclass has a XML element generated, allowing it to be the root of any interchange.

    While this flexibility might be useful in some cases, it clogs up the XSD with elements that will never get used in practice.

    Proposed resolution:

    Define two boolean XMI Tags:

    1. To define whether root elements should be restricted: org.omg.xmi.restrictRoots (defaults to true)

    2. To mark classifiers (classes or associations) as being potential roots: org.omg.xmi.rootElement (defaults to false)
