Class UML 2.4.1::Substitution

Description:

A substitution is a relationship between two classifiers signifies that the substituting classifier complies with the contract specified by the contract classifier. This implies that instances of the substituting classifier are runtime substitutable where instances of the contract classifier are expected.

Properties:

contract : Classifier (1 1); -- source Substitution
substitutingClassifier : Classifier (1 1); -- source Substitution
mapping : OpaqueExpression (0 1); -- source Abstraction
client : NamedElement (1 *); -- source Dependency
supplier : NamedElement (1 *); -- source Dependency

The element(s) independent of the client element(s), in the same respect and the same dependency relationship. In some directed dependency relationships (such as Refinement Abstractions), a common convention in the domain of class-based OO software is to put the more abstract element in this role. Despite this convention, users of UML may stipulate a sense of dependency suitable for their domain, which makes a more abstract element dependent on that which is more specific.
