FUML11 — Error in setting result pin values for CallActions

  • Key: FUML11-30
  • Legacy Issue Number: 17391
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Model Driven Solutions ( Mr. Ed Seidewitz)
  • Summary:

    Specification: Semantics of a Foundational Subset for Executable UML Models (fUML), v1.0 (formal/2011-02-02)
    Subclause: CallActionActivation

    At the end of CallActionActivation::doAction, the output parameter values from the call execution are placed on the result output pins of the call action. However, the current specification presumes that the parameter values from the execution will be in the same order as the output parameters (and output pins). But this will not always be the case.

    For example, if a parameter is an inout parameter, then it will have a parameter value added to the execution with its input before the execution is executed. It’s output will then be written to this existing output parameter value, while parameter values for out parameters will be created ordered after the one for the inout parameter, even if the out parameters are ordered before the inout parameter. Thus, the wrong values will be copied to the output pins.

    Instead of relying on ordering, the specification for doAction should us the parameter reference for each output parameter value to identify the correct result output pin to which the parameter value should be written.
