Abstract Class UML 2.4.1::InvocationAction

Description:

InvocationAction is an abstract class for the various actions that invoke behavior.In addition to targeting an object, invocation actions can also invoke behavioral features on ports from where the invocation requests are routed onwards on links deriving from attached connectors. Invocation actions may also be sent to a target via a given port, either on the sending object or on another object.

Direct Superclasses: Action

Direct Subclasses: SendSignalAction, SendObjectAction, CallAction, BroadcastSignalAction

Class Precedence List: InvocationAction, Action, ExecutableNode, ActivityNode, RedefinableElement, NamedElement, Element

Properties:

argument : InputPin (0 *); -- source InvocationAction
onPort : Port (0 1); -- source InvocationAction
context : Classifier (0 1); -- source Action
input : InputPin (0 *); -- source Action
isLocallyReentrant : Boolean (1 1); -- source Action

If true, the action can begin a new, concurrent execution, even if there is already another execution of the action ongoing. If false, the action cannot begin a new execution until any previous execution has completed.
Default value: FALSE
