Abstract Class UML 2.3::CallAction

Description:

CallAction is an abstract class for actions that invoke behavior and receive return values.

Direct Superclasses: InvocationAction

Direct Subclasses: StartObjectBehaviorAction, CallOperationAction, CallBehaviorAction

Class Precedence List: CallAction, InvocationAction, Action, ExecutableNode, ActivityNode, RedefinableElement, NamedElement, Element

Properties:

isSynchronous : Boolean (1 1); -- source CallAction
result : OutputPin (0 *); -- source CallAction
argument : InputPin (0 *); -- source InvocationAction
onPort : Port (0 1); -- source InvocationAction
context : Classifier (0 1); -- source Action
input : InputPin (0 *); -- source Action
isLocallyReentrant : Boolean (1 1); -- source Action

If true, the action can begin a new, concurrent execution, even if there is already another execution of the action ongoing. If false, the action cannot begin a new execution until any previous execution has completed.
Default value: FALSE

Constraints:

Signature: type_ordering_multiplicity() : Boolean;
Description: The type, ordering, and multiplicity of an argument pin must be the same as the corresponding parameter of the behavior or behavioral feature.
Expression: true

Signature: synchronous_call() : Boolean;
Description: Only synchronous call actions can have result pins.
Expression: true

Signature: number_and_order() : Boolean;
Description: The number and order of argument pins must be the same as the number and order of parameters of the invoked behavior or behavioral feature. Pins are matched to parameters by order.
Expression: true

Operations:

No additional operations.
