UMLR — Delegation Connector should not be typed

  • Key: UMLR-664
  • Status: open  
  • Source: oose Innovative Informatik eG ( Mr. Axel Scheithauer)
  • Summary:

    The Specification says

    A delegation Connector [...] links a Port to a role within the owning EncapsulatedClassifier. It represents the forwarding of requests.

    What would be the meaning of an Association used as a type for this Connector? I fail to see one. Should there be a Constraint, that doesn't allow a type for a delegation Connector?

    Add following Constraint to the Connector definition
    inv: self.kind = ConnectorKind::delegation implies type = null
    (OCL needs to be verified, I'm not sure that it is valid)
