UML14 — UseCaseInstance badly defined

  • Key: UML14-798
  • Legacy Issue Number: 1235
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    Summary: UseCaseInstance inherits from Instance, which inherits from
    ModelElement.
    Since a UseCaseInstance has no attributes and relationships defined, it
    has
    only those inherited, which are: name, the set of attribute slots and
    the
    link to a Classifier. Therefore, the statement "An explicitly described
    UseCaseInstance is called a scenario" (Semantics pg. 91) has no
    meaning,since
    there is no way to describe a UseCaseInstance by means of anything else
    than
    its UseCase.
