Class UML 2.3::Signal

Description:

A signal is a specification of send request instances communicated between objects. The receiving object handles the received request instances as specified by its receptions. The data carried by a send request (which was passed to it by the send invocation occurrence that caused that request) are represented as attributes of the signal. A signal is defined independently of the classifiers handling the signal occurrence.

Properties:

ownedAttribute : Property (0 *); -- source Signal
attribute : Property (0 *); -- source Classifier
collaborationUse : CollaborationUse (0 *); -- source Classifier
feature : Feature (0 *); -- source Classifier
general : Classifier (0 *); -- source Classifier
generalization : Generalization (0 *); -- source Classifier

Specifies the Generalization relationships for this Classifier. These Generalizations navigaten to more general classifiers in the generalization hierarchy.
{composite}
Subsets: Element.ownedElement
Opposite: Generalization.specific

inheritedMember : NamedElement (0 *); -- source Classifier
isAbstract : Boolean (1 1); -- source Classifier

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.
Default value: FALSE

References the ElementImports owned by the Namespace.

The string expression used to define the name of this named element.
{composite}
Subsets: Element.ownedElement

namespace : Namespace (0 1); -- source NamedElement

Specifies the namespace that owns the NamedElement.
