FUML_ — Additional changes required for action firing semantics

  • Key: FUML_-7
  • Legacy Issue Number: 15094
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Model Driven Solutions ( Mr. Ed Seidewitz)
  • Summary:

    Specification: Semantics of a Foundational Subset for Executable UML Models

    Subclause: ActionActivation

    Before the adoption of the resolution to Issue 14550 (Revise fUML to be based on UML 2.3), when an action fired it accepted all tokens offered to its input pins, even if this was more than the multiplicity upper bound of a pin. However, on any one firing, it would only consume at most a number of tokens equal to the multiplicity upper bound on each pin. If tokens were left on pins greater than the multiplicity lower bounds, then it would fire again.

    UML 2.3 clarified that an action never accepts offers for tokens above the multiplicity upper bounds of its pins. The semantics of actions were changed in the resolution of 14550 to be consistent with this. However, the semantics for firing the again were not properly changed to reflect the fact that, if the action is, indeed, ready to fire again, the tokens it needs will not actually be on its input pins yet. The semantics for firing again needs to be updated to explicitly accept the pending offers for incoming tokens when the action fires again.
