Resource Shape

'Resource Shape' specifies a Requirement's metadata; that is, the set of standard OSLC properties and custom Enterprise Architect properties. 'Resource Shape' can be accessed using the URL:

     http://<server>/<model_name>/oslc/rs/

The properties of both types specified in the 'Resource Shape' map to specific fields in the Requirement's 'Properties' dialog in Enterprise Architect. For each property, the 'Resource Shape' can also specify constraints.
