Class UML 2.5::Substitution

Description:

A substitution is a relationship between two classifiers signifying 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.

Direct Superclasses: Realization

Class Precedence List: Substitution, Realization, Abstraction, Dependency, DirectedRelationship, Relationship, PackageableElement, ParameterableElement, NamedElement, Element

Properties:

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

The Element(s) dependent on the supplier Element(s). In some cases (such as a trace Abstraction) the assignment of direction (that is, the designation of the client Element) is at the discretion of the modeler and is a stipulation.
Subsets: DirectedRelationship.source
Opposite: NamedElement.clientDependency
