FUML13 — There is an incorrect note about navigating links using structural feature actions

  • Key: FUML13-32
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Model Driven Solutions ( Mr. Ed Seidewitz)
  • Summary:

    In Overview, under "Structural Feature Actions", it states in the first note that "In fUML, association ends are always owned by the association and never by the types of the ends (see 7.2.2). Therefore, it is not possible to navigate a link in fUML using a structural feature action." However, as part of the resolution to issue FUML-51 Revise fUML to be based on UML 2.3 (legacy issue number 14550), during fUML 1.0 finalization, the semantics for structural feature actions were change to be in accordance with the resolution to UML22-263 (legacy issue number 10045):

    10045 - The resolution of this issue clarifies that a structural feature action can be used to read and write an association end of a binary association as if it was a feature of the opposite classifier, even if the end is not actually owned by that classifier. This requires updating the doAction operations of the various structural feature action activation classes so that the actions behave like the corresponding link action if their structural feature is an association end. (Note that association ends are never classifier-owned in fUML.)

    Thus, the above quoted note in is not correct, and it should have been removed as part of the resolution of FUML-51.
