   RE: [xml-dev] Co-operating with Architectural Forms

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Agree and appreciated.  We got into this almost 
as a historical review but may be discovering the 
technology of AFs has a place beside the others 
and what you suggest is exactly what we should 
come out of this with:  a map.  I'm not 
quite sure we have all the pieces of the puzzle 
yet.  As I said, if sharing behavioral semantics 
is a goal, none of these solutions seem more 
than just a means to point to documents that 
describe semantics.  The LowlyNotation is the 
only one that actually references an executable.

True, but it's useful to find where the overlaps are, and 
the environments where each solution is better. 

I'll try to summarise the points made in this thread and circulate 
it back through the list.
