Class UML 2.3::Stereotype

Description:

A stereotype defines how an existing metaclass may be extended, and enables the use of platform or domain specific terminology or notation in place of, or in addition to, the ones used for the extended metaclass.

Direct Superclasses: Class

Direct Subclasses:

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

Properties:

profile : Profile (0 1); -- source Stereotype
extension : Extension (0 *); -- source Class
isAbstract : Boolean (1 1); -- source Class
isActive : Boolean (1 1); -- source Class
nestedClassifier : Classifier (0 *); -- source Class
ownedAttribute : Property (0 *); -- source Class
ownedOperation : Operation (0 *); -- source Class
ownedReception : Reception (0 *); -- source Class
superClass : Class (0 *); -- source Class
ownedPort : Port (0 *); -- source EncapsulatedClassifier
ownedConnector : Connector (0 *); -- source StructuredClassifier
part : Property (0 *); -- source StructuredClassifier

References the properties specifying instances that the classifier owns by composition. This association is derived, selecting those owned properties where isComposite is true.
{readonly, derived}
The spec does not provide a function to compute this derived property!

ownedBehavior : Behavior (0 *); -- source BehavioredClassifier

References behavior specifications owned by a classifier.

owningTemplateParameter : TemplateParameter (0 1); -- source ParameterableElement
elementImport : ElementImport (0 *); -- source Namespace
importedMember : PackageableElement (0 *); -- source Namespace
member : NamedElement (0 *); -- source Namespace
ownedMember : NamedElement (0 *); -- source Namespace
ownedRule : Constraint (0 *); -- source Namespace
packageImport : PackageImport (0 *); -- source Namespace

References the PackageImports owned by the Namespace.
{composite}
Subsets: Element.ownedElement
Opposite: PackageImport.importingNamespace

isLeaf : Boolean (1 1); -- source RedefinableElement
redefinedElement : RedefinableElement (0 *); -- source RedefinableElement
redefinitionContext : Classifier (0 *); -- source RedefinableElement
clientDependency : Dependency (0 *); -- source NamedElement
name : String (0 1); -- source NamedElement
nameExpression : StringExpression (0 1); -- source NamedElement
namespace : Namespace (0 1); -- source NamedElement
qualifiedName : String (0 1); -- source NamedElement

A name which allows the NamedElement to be identified within a hierarchy of nested Namespaces. It is constructed from the names of the containing namespaces starting at the root of the hierarchy and ending with the name of the NamedElement itself.
{readonly, derived}

ownedComment : Comment (0 *); -- source Element

The Comments owned by this element.
{composite}
Subsets: Element.ownedElement

ownedElement : Element (0 *); -- source Element
owner : Element (0 1); -- source Element

Constraints:

Signature: name_not_clash() : Boolean;
Description: Stereotype names should not clash with keyword names for the extended model element.
Expression: true

Signature: generalize() : Boolean;
Description: A Stereotype may only generalize or specialize another Stereotype.
Expression: generalization.general->forAll(e |e.oclIsKindOf(Stereotype)) and generalization.specific->forAll(e | e.oclIsKindOf(Stereotype))

Operations:

Signature: profile.1() : Profile;
Description: A stereotype must be contained, directly or indirectly, in a profile.
Expression: result = self.containingProfile()

Signature: containingProfile() : Profile;
Description: The query containingProfile returns the closest profile directly or indirectly containing this stereotype.
The OCL used here is not normative.
Editor's notes: This calls Package.containingProfile() which has a bug.
Expression: true
Original: result = self.namespace.oclAsType(Package).containingProfile()
