Hey everyone, we’ve been having a discussion on GitHub about the best way to collaborate on modifications to the SBOM model.
Currently we are modeling via XMI. This appears to have limitations based on tools available.
An alternative is to model in XSD.
Can folks weigh in with pros/cons/alternatives?
Feel free to comment by replying either to this alias, or directly to the GitHub issue.
The XMI that was shared cannot be opened in StarUML, but can be opened in GenMyModel. So it appears that in order to look at the model, we'll always need to be online, and we'll always need to use this single tool.
The exported XMI does not contain a diagram. So there's no way to visualize the relationships between the various objects without having to resort to images. This is so frustrating. Seriously, if we were modeling in XSD, anyone could use virtually any XML authoring tool and visualize the model while they author it.
