ALF — Pins in class semantics

  • Key: ALF-20
  • Legacy Issue Number: 4922
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: International Business Machines ( Mr. Sridhar Iyengar)
  • Summary:

    [Sridhar Iyengar] 37. Page 2-274 : Changes to semantics of Class "a
    method realizing ... parameters of kind in and out match input pins...".
    For some one not concerned with implementing Action Semantics - it is an
    optional compliance point after all, adding this text to the basic Class
    specification causes additional confusion because this introduces new
    terminology 'pins' without providing appropriate context. This text can
    simply be in the Actions package specifciation and reference parameters
    without any loss of information. If for some reason submitters believe
    this explanatory text is important, please refer to the Action Semantics
    spec sections to provide additional context that explains why this
    information is relevant.

    [Conrad] BTW, the relation of parameters to pins is added to the seventh
    paragraph of the semantics of Class on page 2-74, starting with a
    modification of the seventh sentence (see asterisks)

    A method realizing an operation has the same signature as the
    operation and match those of a procedure implementing the
    specification of the operation. Pins of procedures have two
    direction: in and out, while method and operation parameters have
    direction in, out, inout, and return.
