ALF11 — Classify statements should start classifier behaviors

  • Key: ALF11-26
  • Legacy Issue Number: 18281
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Model Driven Solutions ( Mr. Ed Seidewitz)
  • Summary:

    Specification: Action Language for Foundational UML (Alf): Concrete Syntax for a UML Action Language, FTF-Beta 2 (ptc/2012-08-43)

    Subclause: 9.16 classify Statements

    The semantics of classify statements does not mention what happens if any of the classes in the from list are active classes. The semantics of a UML reclassify object action are to NOT start the classifier behaviors of any such active classes. However, Alf does not provide any way to explicitly start classifier behaviors (this normally happens implicitly when an active object is constructed), so it would seem that the Alf classify statement SHOULD have the stated semantics of starting the classifier behaviors of any active classes in the from list. Otherwise, there would be no way to do so.
