UML14 — Are subsystems instantiable?

  • Key: UML14-900
  • Legacy Issue Number: 1945
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    Summary: The semantics document is contradictory on whether subsystems
    are instantiable. Comments: If a classsifier is instantiable, it should be allowed to have
    methods to implement calls to its operations at runtime. In
    the case of subsystems, this may just translate to operation
    calls on it contained objects. If subsystems are not supposed
    to have behavior of their own, then they should not be
    instantiable.
