FUML12 — Objects with cyclic references cannot be converted to string representations

  • Key: FUML12-13
  • Legacy Issue Number: 18365
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Model Driven Solutions ( Mr. Ed Seidewitz)
  • Summary:

    Specification: Semantics of a Foundational Subset for Executable UML Models (fUML), v1.1, RTF Beta (ptc/2012-10-18)
    Subclause: CompundValue

    The CompoundValue::toString operation calls toString on each value of each featureValue of a compound value. If one of these values is a reference then Reference::toString operation calls toString on the referenced object. Thus, if two or more objects cyclically reference each other, calling toString on any one of them will result in an infinite recursion.

  • Disposition: Resolved — FUML 1.2
  • Disposition Summary:

    Update CompoundValue::toString

    Agreed. If the feature value is a reference, then it is sufficient to show the object ID and list the names of the types of the object.
