UMLR — UML 2.5 beta issue - Operation notation is wrong

  • Key: UMLR-423
  • Legacy Issue Number: 18611
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Model Driven Solutions ( Steve Cook)
  • Summary:

    There is a paragraph in Operation notation 9.6.4 that says this:

    “The return result of the Operation may be expressed as a return parameter, or as the type of the Operation. For example toString(return: String) …”

    This is wrong. If it means anything, it means an in parameter called return. The BNF does not allow return as a term for <direction>, but if it did, then the correct example would be this:

    toString(return result : String)
