UML2 Enumeration Elements
« on: October 26, 2006, 09:45:38 pm »
EA now has UML 2 Interface Elements.  It doesn't yet have UML 2 Enumeration elements.

It would be good (necessary?) to be able to model with the right kind of element.  (Not forgetting UML2 EnumerationLiterals also)

Also, I think Sparx should give serious consideration to creating formal Table and View elements for database work.  Stereotyped Classes are one thing (an interim solution) but a specific elem tn would be better.

Can we have have these soon?  If a choice i required, the formal UML 2 elements before the DB ones.

Thoughts? Votes?

Very much agreed on the Enumeration elements - this is a real necessity, particularly given the time UML 2 has been around.

As far as DB modeling goes, I think we've likely got to wait. OMG is beginning the work to come up with a 'real' profile (not a partially written draft like the one from a few years ago) that addresses this whole area in depth. My guess is that Sparx is tracking that closely, and we're likely to see this around the time it becomes a final adopted spec.
No, you can't have it!

You mean OMG won't come up with Table and View Elements ;)
