ALF — Synchronous action

  • Key: ALF-49
  • Legacy Issue Number: 2005
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    Summary: A synchronous action is defined as a request where the sending
    object pauses to wait for results. Synonym: synchronous request [OMA].

    1) The OMA is not specific on this issue, but the understanding in
    CORBA is that a request is only specific with respect to a thread.

    • So, in UML, does the sending object truly pause to wait for results?
    • Or is it just a thread of that object that pauses for results?
      (in that case, the definition should be clarified)

    2) Another possible interpretation of a synchronous action is that
    such a request is always associated with a response (contrarily to
    an asynchronous request which has no associated response ?).
    The sending object has then an obligation to collect that response.

    If that interpretation was true, then synchronous action would
    map to both synchronous request and def
