FUML11 — ForkNodeActivation does not clear its tokens on termination

  • Key: FUML11-21
  • Legacy Issue Number: 17291
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Model Driven Solutions ( Mr. Ed Seidewitz)
  • Summary:

    Specification: Semantics of a Foundational Subset for Executable UML Models (fUML) (formal/2011-02-01)

    Subclause: ForkNodeActivation

    Unlike other control nodes, a fork node actually holds forked tokens pending their acceptance by downstream nodes. Therefore, when a ForkNodeActivation terminates, it needs to clear its held tokens, similarly to an ObjectNodeActivation. It currently does not do this, which means, if it is fired repeatedly in a loop node, and not all of its held tokens are accepted on previous iterations, it will be spuriously holding extra tokens on subsequent iterations.

    Adding the following overriding method to ForkNodeActivation is sufficient, because ActivityNodeActivation::clearTokens() repeatedly withdraws held tokens until none are left, which will work even for multiply forked tokens.

    public void terminate()

    { // Remove any offered tokens and terminate. this.clearTokens(); super.terminate(); }

    // terminate
