SYSML17 — wrong statement about UML semantics of partitions

  • Key: SYSML17-494
  • Status: open  
  • Source: oose Innovative Informatik eG ( Mr. Axel Scheithauer)
  • Summary:

    The specification says:

    Contraints 2_not_uml_semantics [...]. Classifiers or Properties represented by an ┬źAllocateActivityPartition┬╗ do not have any direct responsibility for invoking behavior depicted within the partition boundaries. To depict this kind of direct responsibility, the modeler is directed to the UML 2 standard, sub clause 12.3.10, "ActivityPartition," Semantics topic.

    This is not what UML specifies. Instead it says in "ActivityPartition", Semantics topic:

    Behaviors invoked within the partition are the responsibility of instances of the Classifier that the partition represents.

    That means, the instances of the represented element are responsible for carrying out the Behavior, not for invoking it. The context of the Activity owning the action is doing that - partitions have no effect on this.
