Changes in 3.0

  • Renamed <RootDevice>to <Device> and <Device> to <SubDevice>,
  • Added complex data types: Struct and Arrays.
  • Simplified the UML diagram. Split the UML diagram into two parts, one for the base elements and one for the data types.
  • In the UML diagram: Moved <extends> into the UML <ModuleClass> element (easier to read).
  • Added support to specify Units of Measurement to data types,
  • Added <Doc> to <Domain> and other elements.
  • <Doc> is now always the first part of an element.
  • Changed <DeviceInfo> element to a list of <Characteristic>.
  • Added <Characteristic> list to <Modules> and <ModuleClasses>.
  • The <data> element in <Event> is now optional to support events without attached or associated data.
  • In Actions: Added <Args> as a surrounding list around a list of <Arg>.
  • Added Constraints to <DataType>.
  • Added optional name attribute to <DataType>. This mandatory for elements of a struct.
  • Restructured the RNG file for better readability and maintainability.
  • In the RNG/XSD: Changed cardinality of the occurrence of elements that are part of a list of elements (e.g. <SubDevices><SubDevice>…</SubDevice></SubDevices> from „zero or more“ to „one or more“ when the surrounding list element itself is optional (to avoid empty lists).
