Class UML 2.5::Property

Description:

A Property is a StructuralFeature. A Property related by ownedAttribute to a Classifier (other than an association) represents an attribute and might also represent an association end. It relates an instance of the Classifier to a value or set of values of the type of the attribute. A Property related by memberEnd to an Association represents an end of the Association. The type of the Property is the type of the end of the Association. A Property has the capability of being a DeploymentTarget in a Deployment relationship. This enables modeling the deployment to hierarchical nodes that have Properties functioning as internal parts. Property specializes ParameterableElement to specify that a Property can be exposed as a formal template parameter, and provided as an actual parameter in a binding of a template.

Operations:

Signature: subsettingContext() : Type;
Description: The query subsettingContext() gives the context for subsetting a Property. It consists, in the case of an attribute, of the corresponding Classifier, and in the case of an association end, all of the Classifiers at the other ends.
Expression: result = (if association <> null then association.memberEnd->excluding(self)->collect(type)->asSet() else if classifier<>null then classifier->asSet() else Set{} endif endif)

Signature: opposite.1() : Property;
Description: If this property is a memberEnd of a binary association, then opposite gives the other end.
Expression: result = (if association <> null and association.memberEnd->size() = 2 then association.memberEnd->any(e | e <> self) else null endif)

Signature: isNavigable() : Boolean;
Description: The query isNavigable() indicates whether it is possible to navigate across the property.
Expression: result = (not classifier->isEmpty() or association.navigableOwnedEnd->includes(self))

Signature: isConsistentWith(redefiningElement : RedefinableElement; ) : Boolean;
Description: The query isConsistentWith() specifies, for any two Properties in a context in which redefinition is possible, whether redefinition would be logically consistent. A redefining Property is consistent with a redefined Property if the type of the redefining Property conforms to the type of the redefined Property, and the multiplicity of the redefining Property (if specified) is contained in the multiplicity of the redefined Property.
Expression: result = (redefiningElement.oclIsKindOf(Property) and let prop : Property = redefiningElement.oclAsType(Property) in (prop.type.conformsTo(self.type) and ((prop.lowerBound()->notEmpty() and self.lowerBound()->notEmpty()) implies prop.lowerBound() >= self.lowerBound()) and ((prop.upperBound()->notEmpty() and self.upperBound()->notEmpty()) implies prop.lowerBound() <= self.lowerBound()) and (self.isComposite implies prop.isComposite)))

Signature: isComposite.1() : Boolean;
Description: The value of isComposite is true only if aggregation is composite.
Expression: result = (aggregation = AggregationKind::composite)

Signature: isCompatibleWith(p : ParameterableElement; ) : Boolean;
Description: The query isCompatibleWith() determines if this Property is compatible with the specified ParameterableElement. This Property is compatible with ParameterableElement p if the kind of this Property is thesame as or a subtype of the kind of p. Further, if p is a TypedElement, then the type of this Property must be conformant with the type of p.
Expression: result = (self.oclIsKindOf(p.oclType()) and (p.oclIsKindOf(TypeElement) implies self.type.conformsTo(p.oclAsType(TypedElement).type)))

Signature: isAttribute() : Boolean;
Description: The query isAttribute() is true if the Property is defined as an attribute of some Classifier.
Expression: result = (not classifier->isEmpty())
