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.

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.
