UML25 — InformationFlow cannot have an Activity as source or target

  • Key: UML25-682
  • Legacy Issue Number: 18743
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Alstom Transport ( Wagner Schalch Mendes)
  • Summary:

    In section 17.2.1 InformationFlow (from InformationFlows) page 621, the first constraint states that "The sources and targets of the information flow can only be one of the following kind: Actor, Node, UseCase, Artifact,
    Class, Component, Port, Property, Interface, Package, ActivityNode, ActivityPartition and InstanceSpecification except
    when its classifier is a relationship (i.e., it represents a link).". Why can't an Activity be the source or target of an InformationFlow, since it is a Behavior as an Use Case?
