Class UML 2.3::Class

Description:

Class has derived association that indicates how it may be extended through one or more stereotypes. Stereotype is the only kind of metaclass that cannot be extended by stereotypes.

Direct Superclasses: EncapsulatedClassifier, BehavioredClassifier

Direct Subclasses: Class <<Block>>, Stereotype, Node, Component, Behavior, AssociationClass

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

Properties:

extension : Extension (0 *); -- source Class
isAbstract : Boolean (1 1); -- source Class

If true, the Classifier does not provide a complete declaration and can typically not be instantiated. An abstract classifier is intended to be used by other classifiers e.g. as the target of general metarelationships or generalization relationships.
Redefines: Classifier.isAbstract
Default value: FALSE

Constraints:

Signature: CMOF_14_3_18() : Boolean;
Description: 14.3 [18] Class must not be active see also: https://sites.google.com/site/metamodelingantipatterns/catalog/mof/class-is-active
Expression: not isActive

Signature: CMOF_14_3_15() : Boolean;
Description: 14.3 [15] Only one member attribute of a Class may have isId=true. see also: https://sites.google.com/site/metamodelingantipatterns/catalog/mof/class-has-more-than-one-id
Expression: self->closure(general)->union(self)->attribute->asSet()->select(p:Property | p.isID)->size() < 2

Signature: CMOF_14_3_10a() : Boolean;
Description: 14.3 [10] The following properties must be empty Class::nestedClassifier Property::qualifier see also: https://sites.google.com/site/metamodelingantipatterns/catalog/mof/class-has-nested-classifier
Expression: nestedClassifier->isEmpty()

Signature: passive_class() : Boolean;
Description: A passive class may not own receptions.
Expression: not self.isActive implies self.ownedReception.isEmpty()

Operations:

Signature: inherit(inhs : NamedElement; ) : NamedElement;
Description: The inherit operation is overridden to exclude redefined properties.
The OCL used here is not normative.
Editor's notes: reject not excluding
Expression: result = inhs->reject(inh | ownedMember->select(oclIsKindOf(RedefinableElement))->select(redefinedElement->includes(inh)))
Original: result = inhs->excluding(inh | ownedMember->select(oclIsKindOf(RedefinableElement))->select(redefinedElement->includes(inh)))
