Hi,

I am trying to figure out the best approach to model the two most common
operation patterns (or MEP);
- one-way (In-only)
- request-response (In-Out)

The following is a simplified representation of these two operations:

One-way: void operation(input1, input2, inputN)
Request-response: void operation(input1, input2, inputN, output1, output2,
outputN)

Return is always void. The parameters can be a sequence of; Inputs, Ouputs
or both at the same time.
In the case of the One-way, a single request message is defined using the
input parameters
In the case of the Request-response, two messages are defined based on
appropriately identified parameters (In, Out, both/InOut).

Based on the Tigerstripe current capabilities I see the following
limitations:
- Editing a method of an interface (Session Facade) is limited; lack of
visibility of the parameters type and name (In, Out, InOut)
- Assigning stereotypes to each individual parameters
- Assigning various exceptions to a request-response operation

Let me know if I am correct in the above evaluation. It seems the best
approach would be to extend Tigerstripe with a special artifact type
(primary operation?), the same way as Query and UpdateProcedure are already
defined.

Thanks,
Jerome

Hi Jerome,

not sure I fully understand your assessment of limitations:

> Based on the Tigerstripe current capabilities I see the following
> limitations:
> - Editing a method of an interface (Session Facade) is limited;
lack of visibility of the parameters type and name (In, Out, InOut)

From your next comment, I am assuming that you are adding a Stereotype to
each parameter to identify if it is In, Out, Inout ? If so is the issue
that you cannot see those Stereotypes when looking at the list of
parameters? We may be able to do someting with the display to improve this.

> - Assigning stereotypes to each individual parameters

This should be possible - is there something that doesn't work - or is it
just "fiddly"?

> - Assigning various exceptions to a request-response operation

Again this should be straightforward You should just need to select
exceptions that exist in your model. Can you expand on the problem?

Regards,

Richard
