UML14 — Operation without - UML2 Superstructure

  • Key: UML14-420
  • Legacy Issue Number: 6514
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Daimler AG ( Mario Jeckle)
  • Summary:

    Page 55 of the current superstructure document lists the operation's
    syntax as "visbility name (parameter-list) : property-string" and
    states
    that "property-string optionally shows other properties of the
    operation
    enclosed in braces".

    I wondering where the good old return type or the property enclosed in
    curly brackets might have gone.

    If the "property-string" mentioned in the operation's syntax quoted
    above is the return type the possibility to add operation wide
    properties (like "query") is gone.

    If the "property-string" is the way to add properties it should be
    enclosed in curly brackets and the separation by the colon from the
    parameter list containing also the return type could be misleading.
    Hence the colon should be dropped or exchanged by another symbol.

    Or am I just misreading the spec?
