Issues Descriptions

Need a profile for the MVF metamodel in order to better integrate with various other UML profiles and tools

  • Key: MVF-4
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Thematix Partners LLC ( Elisa Kendall)
  • Summary:

    As a convenience for UML modelers or modelers using other profiles, a profile for MVF would allow UML tool users to apply MVF without requiring other changes to tools.

    This would require both the profile itself as a machine readable file and documentation for it in the MVF specification. An optional compliance point should be added to cover the new profile.

Clarify uri vs refrence vs externalReference

  • Key: MVF-6
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Mayo Clinic ( Davide Sottara)
  • Summary:

    The terms may be confusing, and implementers may 'misplace' important pieces of information

    'uri' is meant to be an 'individual/instance' URI, that identifies the entity represented by the MVF element
    (e.g. an individual Community - mapped by a mvf:Community, or an individual Concept - mapped by a mvf:MVFEntry)

    'externalReference', which only applies to MVFEntry, may be better called 'semanticReference', and be exepcted to resolve to a definitional resource such as an ontology (class/expression)

    'reference' seems to hold more descriptive/informative links such as web pages or other web resources.
    Maybe it could be called 'descriptiveReference' - in contrast with 'semanticReference'?
