Class UML 2.5::Continuation


A Continuation is a syntactic way to define continuations of different branches of an alternative CombinedFragment. Continuations are intuitively similar to labels representing intermediate points in a flow of control.

Direct Superclasses: InteractionFragment

Direct Subclasses:

Class Precedence List: Continuation, InteractionFragment, NamedElement, Element


setting : Boolean (1 1); -- source Continuation

True: when the Continuation is at the end of the enclosing InteractionFragment and False when it is in the beginning.
Default value: TRUE

covered : Lifeline (0 *); -- source InteractionFragment

References the Lifelines that the InteractionFragment involves.
Opposite: Lifeline.coveredBy

enclosingInteraction : Interaction (0 1); -- source InteractionFragment
enclosingOperand : InteractionOperand (0 1); -- source InteractionFragment
generalOrdering : GeneralOrdering (0 *); -- source InteractionFragment
clientDependency : Dependency (0 *); -- source NamedElement
name : String (0 1); -- source NamedElement

The name of the NamedElement.

nameExpression : StringExpression (0 1); -- source NamedElement

The StringExpression used to define the name of this NamedElement.
Subsets: Element.ownedElement

namespace : Namespace (0 1); -- source NamedElement

Specifies the Namespace that owns the NamedElement.
Derived union with sources: (enclosingOperand, enclosingInteraction)
Subsets: Element.owner
Opposite: Namespace.ownedMember

qualifiedName : String (0 1); -- source NamedElement

A name that allows the NamedElement to be identified within a hierarchy of nested Namespaces. It is constructed from the names of the containing Namespaces starting at the root of the hierarchy and ending with the name of the NamedElement itself.
{readonly, derived}

visibility : VisibilityKind (0 1); -- source NamedElement
ownedComment : Comment (0 *); -- source Element

The Comments owned by this Element.
Subsets: Element.ownedElement

ownedElement : Element (0 *); -- source Element
owner : Element (0 1); -- source Element
