RIM based ITS
The RS XML ITS is a term used by the RIMBAA WG for an ITS that is based on 'pure RIM semantics', i.e. an ITS that defines an XML syntax which allows for the XML to be processed solely based on its contents (and not on Class Clone names, or knowledge of templates/interactions used).
Characteristics of instances that conform to this ITS
- All structured attributes (e.g. classCode, moodCode) have to be present in all instances
- The XML element names (related to classNames, not attribute names) only serve to provide a syntax, they carry no semantics, and are not used in determining the semantics of the artefact content.
