Re: [] UML 2.4 plans


There are several bugs tagged for the 4.0 release which detail the plan. I've also added comments to the main one (support for UML 2.4) indicating what's left to do. There will be no more API changes. I'm currently working on migration for legacy model and support for XMI 2.4 (and CMOF 2.4) interchange; I hope to have those complete by mid-October, after which I'll be updating documentation and publishing a migration guide.

The source and reference models are now based directly on XMI models provided by the OMG, so yes, the naming changes were a necessary side-effect of that.

If you have any notes on what you had to do to adopt the new version (other than the things you just mentioned), I'll be sure to include that in my migration guide...

Are there any detailed plans for what will be in UML2 4.0.0 (the official project plan seems to be all boilerplate)?

The 4.0.0M2 release shows some interesting UML 2.4 progress, but hits MDT/OCL.

Some problems whereby MDT/OCL extends the MDT/UML2 meta-model are unavoidable, but others are less obvious.

In particular JUnit tests fail until

the UML URI is changed to 4.0.0 in test models; is a migration capability planned or have we got our declarations wrong?

the UML package name is changed from "uml" to "UML"; probably a necessary UML-alignment change

PrimitiveTypes package names are sorted out; probably a necessary UML-alignment change
