Manually soting of operations and attributes

Postby Jürgen Denner » Fri Mar 01, 2002 3:03 am

Hi,

please allow the manually sorting of operations and attributes in classes.
It's not very important for the design but for code generation it is
absolutely necessary.

An example:
We have designed an enumeration class and shipped a product. The enumeration
seems to be based on the attribute string-order. Adding a new attribute to
the class in a newer version results in an reorganisation of the enumeration
values. We can not add the new attribute to the end of the list and have to
maintain the class manually.

Manually ordering is not enforced by UML1.3 (physical meta model) but it is
necessary for code generation (and beside that rose is able to do that).

Thanks,
Jürgen
