Class UML 2.4.1::ExtensionPoint


An extension point identifies a point in the behavior of a use case where that behavior can be extended by the behavior of some other (extending) use case, as specified by an extend relationship.

Class Precedence List: ExtensionPoint, RedefinableElement, NamedElement, Element


useCase : UseCase (1 1); -- source ExtensionPoint
isLeaf : Boolean (1 1); -- source RedefinableElement

Indicates whether it is possible to further redefine a RedefinableElement. If the value is true, then it is not possible to further redefine the RedefinableElement. Note that this property is preserved through package merge operations; that is, the capability to redefine a RedefinableElement (i.e., isLeaf=false) must be preserved in the resulting RedefinableElement of a package merge operation where a RedefinableElement with isLeaf=false is merged with a matching RedefinableElement with isLeaf=true: the resulting RedefinableElement will have isLeaf=false. Default value is false.
Default value: FALSE
