Class UML 2.4.1::GeneralOrdering


A general ordering represents a binary relation between two occurrence specifications, to describe that one occurrence specification must occur before the other in a valid trace. This mechanism provides the ability to define partial orders of occurrence cpecifications that may otherwise not have a specified order.

Class Precedence List: GeneralOrdering, NamedElement, Element


after : OccurrenceSpecification (1 1); -- source GeneralOrdering
before : OccurrenceSpecification (1 1); -- source GeneralOrdering
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.

Signature: irreflexsive_transitive_closure() : Boolean;
Description: An occurrence specification must not be ordered relative to itself through a series of general orderings. (In other words, the transitive closure of the general orderings is irreflexive.)
Expression: start.lifeline = finish.lifeline
