Abstract Class UML 2.3::Behavior

Description:

A behavior owns zero or more parameter sets.

Direct Superclasses: Class

Direct Subclasses: StateMachine, OpaqueBehavior, Interaction, Activity

Class Precedence List: Behavior, Class, EncapsulatedClassifier, StructuredClassifier, BehavioredClassifier, Classifier, TemplateableElement, Type, PackageableElement, ParameterableElement, Namespace, RedefinableElement, NamedElement, Element

Properties:

context : BehavioredClassifier (0 1); -- source Behavior

The classifier that is the context for the execution of the behavior. If the behavior is owned by a BehavioredClassifier, that classifier is the context. Otherwise, the context is the first BehavioredClassifier reached by following the chain of owner relationships. For example, following this algorithm, the context of an entry action in a state machine is the classifier that owns the state machine. The features of the context classifier as well as the elements visible to the context classifier are visible to the behavior.

Constraints:

Signature: parameters_match() : Boolean;
Description: The parameters of the behavior must match the parameters of the implemented behavioral feature.
Expression: true

Signature: must_realize() : Boolean;
Description: If the implemented behavioral feature has been redefined in the ancestors of the owner of the behavior, then the behavior must realize the latest redefining behavioral feature.
Expression: true

Signature: most_one_behaviour() : Boolean;
Description: There may be at most one behavior for a given pairing of classifier (as owner of the behavior) and behavioral feature (as specification of the behavior).
Expression: true

Signature: feature_of_context_classifier() : Boolean;
Description: The implemented behavioral feature must be a feature (possibly inherited) of the context classifier of the behavior.
Expression: true

Operations:

No additional operations.
