UML14 — Infix operator use should be clarified

  • Key: UML14-927
  • Legacy Issue Number: 2018
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    Summary: Infix operators like "+" and "<" etc. are defined for built-in OCL types.
    It is not explained whether you can
    use these for user defined types. The proposal is to allow infix notation
    for all of the
    operators defined in OCL for used-defined types as well. If someone
    defines the operation
    "+(p : Person)"
    on type Person, this can be used in OCL by
    somePerson + anotherPerson.
    instead of just by
    somePerson.+(anotherPerson)
    The OCL specification is not clear whether this is allowed or not.
