Class UML 2.4.1::ProtocolTransition

Description:

A protocol transition specifies a legal transition for an operation. Transitions of protocol state machines have the following information: a pre condition (guard), on trigger, and a post condition. Every protocol transition is associated to zero or one operation (referred BehavioralFeature) that belongs to the context classifier of the protocol state machine.

Constraints:

Signature: refers_to_operation() : Boolean;
Description: If a protocol transition refers to an operation (i. e. has a call trigger corresponding to an operation), then that operation should apply to the context classifier of the state machine of the protocol transition.
Expression: true

Signature: belongs_to_psm() : Boolean;
Description: A protocol transition always belongs to a protocol state machine.
Expression: container.belongsToPSM()

Signature: associated_actions() : Boolean;
Description: A protocol transition never has associated actions.
Expression: effect->isEmpty()

Operations:

No additional operations.
