Default Semantic Rules and Metrics


This page is related to the Semantic Verification and Metrics Computation sub-project of jUCMNav.

The 3 seg.jucmnav sub-packages affected by updates to the default static semantic rules and/or metrics are:

Updating or Adding a New Default Rule (or Metric) in a Group

  1. Edit the appropriate .xml file in the staticSemantic (or metrics) directory. Simply edit it in a text editor.
  2. Test your modification using the "Restore Defaults" button in the Preference page of your plug-in under test.
  3. Update the PredefinedSemanticsRulesOverview (or PredefinedMetricsOverview) documentation page.

Adding a New Default Group

  1. Export the new rules (created with jUCMNav) to a .xml file in the staticSemantic (or metrics) directory.
  2. Edit (or
  3. In the method getDefaultGroups(), add a line stating where to get the new group of rules/metrics:
    1. For rules: defaultGroups.add(createDefaultGroup("Your Group Name", "GroupName.xml", all, MetricsDefinitionManager.class)); //$NON-NLS-1$ //$NON-NLS-2$
    2. For metrics: defaultGroups.add(createDefaultGroup("Your Group Name", "GroupName.xml", all, StaticSemanticDefMgr.class)); //$NON-NLS-1$ //$NON-NLS-2$
  4. Update the PredefinedSemanticsRulesOverview (or PredefinedMetricsOverview) documentation page.

Updating the OCL library

  • Simply edit the file library.ocl. Update in the code base and also the file on the SemanticVerification page (since this also serves as user documentation).
  • Do not hesitate to add more functions to this library (and minimize the number of helper functions local to rules).
  • Make sure the definition is added to the right package and the right context. Packages/contexts can be declared many times in this file.
  • Beware: an OCL function in this library can invoke another one only if it was defined earlier in the file.
