  • Summary:

    I've found a implicit constraint: Imagine - for example - a LoopNode. It's part of an activity partition called component1. Within the body of the loop node an action should be called that's part of another activity partition called component2 (It's a common scenario: a component calls another component from within a loop). However that's not allowed: the loop node is in partition component1 while a contained action is in partition component2. Is that right? If yes, I believe it should be allowed.

  • Disposition: Resolved — UML 2.2
  • Disposition Summary:

    It is not clear what the submitter means by a loop node "calling" an action. As a structured activity node, a loop node owns the actions within it. However, an activity partition references contained nodes and edges, but it does not own them. Therefore, it is allowable for the actions contained in a loop node to be in different partitions, if this is what is desired.
