evan.wallace_nist.gov added partial narrative detailing the sequence for the story
Line 12: Line 12:
   * Domain Vocabularies are resources imported from some machine readable form to provide reference terms and definitions for domain concepts relevant to the model.  ​   * Domain Vocabularies are resources imported from some machine readable form to provide reference terms and definitions for domain concepts relevant to the model.  ​
  
 +===== Narrative =====
 +  * The group developing the model is expanding the scope of their standard. ​ Thus new concepts will be added to the model that will need appropriate terms and definitions.
 +  * A standard developer (MVF user) researches the new area and finds that concepts in the extension to the standard are defined in a mix of machine readable reference vocabularies and more traditional text references (papers or web links).
 +  * The user imports the machine readable vocabulary file containing the terms and definitions that he wants into his MVF facility. ​ This creates a new MVFDictionary for all the concepts in the reference vocabulary and one or more Vocabularies in the Workspace. ​ [there should probably be a parameters to the import operation that allow the user to specify which languages will be supported by the import and thus what vocabularies will be created.][There is a question as to whether or not to create a separate MVFDictionary for the reference vocabularies imported or just use the model MVFDictionary.]
 +  * For each concept, the user will indicate the VocabularyEntry to add to the model Dictionary and have the tool add a corresponding MVFEntry to the reference MVFDictionary and to the model vocabularies. ​ The MVFEntry would have the same externalReference as the entry in the reference dictionary.
