Issues Descriptions

Examples are instances of non-MOF metamodels (medium)

  • Key: XMI11-101
  • Legacy Issue Number: 4602
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Adaptive ( Mr. Pete Rivett)
  • Summary:

    Example 3 in A.4 purports to show instances of the Department model defined
    in the previous example (it says that "Department is considered the
    metamodel for Chemistry"). However Department is not a MOF-compliant
    metamodel (it is a fairly basic UML model). So XMI just does not apply!

    Similarly the XMI Document Instance in Example 4 in A.5 shows instance data
    for the Mail model which again is not a MOF-compliant metamodel.

  • Summary:

    Question if both MOF and UML were defining the same tag values for initialValue. No change. This is a DTD initialValue which differs from UML's initial value.
