Class UML 2.3::Realization

Description:

Realization is a specialized abstraction relationship between two sets of model elements, one representing a specification (the supplier) and the other represents an implementation of the latter (the client). Realization can be used to model stepwise refinement, optimizations, transformations, templates, model synthesis, framework composition, etc.

Direct Superclasses: Abstraction

Direct Subclasses: Substitution, InterfaceRealization, ComponentRealization

Class Precedence List: Realization, Abstraction, Dependency, PackageableElement, ParameterableElement, NamedElement, DirectedRelationship, Relationship, Element

Properties:

mapping : OpaqueExpression (0 1); -- source Abstraction
client : NamedElement (1 *); -- source Dependency
supplier : NamedElement (1 *); -- source Dependency

The element(s) independent of the client element(s), in the same respect and the same dependency relationship. In some directed dependency relationships (such as Refinement Abstractions), a common convention in the domain of class-based OO software is to put the more abstract element in this role. Despite this convention, users of UML may stipulate a sense of dependency suitable for their domain, which makes a more abstract element dependent on that which is more specific.
Subsets: DirectedRelationship.target

visibility : VisibilityKind (1 1); -- source PackageableElement
owningTemplateParameter : TemplateParameter (0 1); -- source ParameterableElement
templateParameter : TemplateParameter (0 1); -- source ParameterableElement
clientDependency : Dependency (0 *); -- source NamedElement
name : String (0 1); -- source NamedElement
nameExpression : StringExpression (0 1); -- source NamedElement

The string expression used to define the name of this named element.
