Abstract Class UML 2.5::Behavior

Description:

Behavior is a specification of how its context BehavioredClassifier changes state over time. This specification may be either a definition of possible behavior execution or emergent behavior, or a selective illustration of an interesting subset of possible executions. The latter form is typically used for capturing examples, such as a trace of a particular execution.

Direct Superclasses: Class

Direct Subclasses: StateMachine, OpaqueBehavior, Interaction, Activity

Properties:

context : BehavioredClassifier (0 1); -- source Behavior
isReentrant : Boolean (1 1); -- source Behavior
ownedParameter : Parameter (0 *); -- source Behavior

References a list of Parameters to the Behavior which describes the order and type of arguments that can be given when the Behavior is invoked and of the values which will be returned when the Behavior completes its execution.

Constraints:

No additional constraints.

Operations:

Signature: outputParameters() : Parameter;
Description: The out, inout and return ownedParameters.
Expression: result = (ownedParameter->select(direction=ParameterDirectionKind::out or direction=ParameterDirectionKind::inout or direction=ParameterDirectionKind::return))

Signature: inputParameters() : Parameter;
Description: The in and inout ownedParameters of the Behavior.
Expression: result = (ownedParameter->select(direction=ParameterDirectionKind::_'in' or direction=ParameterDirectionKind::inout))

Signature: context.1() : BehavioredClassifier;
Description: A Behavior that is directly owned as a nestedClassifier does not have a context. Otherwise, to determine the context of a Behavior, find the first BehavioredClassifier reached by following the chain of owner relationships from the Behavior, if any. If there is such a BehavioredClassifier, then it is the context, unless it is itself a Behavior with a non-empty context, in which case that is also the context for the original Behavior.
Expression: result = (if nestingClass <> null then null else let b:BehavioredClassifier = self.behavioredClassifier(self.owner) in if b.oclIsKindOf(Behavior) and b.oclAsType(Behavior)._'context' <> null then b.oclAsType(Behavior)._'context' else b endif endif )

Signature: behavioredClassifier(from : Element; ) : BehavioredClassifier;
Description: The first BehavioredClassifier reached by following the chain of owner relationships from the Behavior, if any.
