    when not available

  • Disposition: Resolved — VOICP 1.0
  • Disposition Summary:

    After section 9.2 Stereotypes of the UML Voice Profile, add a section: "Using Activity diagrams to represent dialog behavior" with the following content.

    For more flexibility in the implementation, the dialog behavior which, from a semantic point of view is defined by a state machine, can however be rendered by an activity diagram following some conventions.

    When this variation in notation is used the following mappings should apply:

    • An ActivityGraph replaces a StateMachine.
    • A InitialNode replaces a Pseudostate with kind=initial
    • A DecisionNode replaces a Pseudostate with kind=choice
    • A MergeNode replaces a Pseudostate with kind=junction
    • An ActivityFinalNode replaces a FinalState
    • An Action replaces a State

    The base classes for the stereotypes are changed according to these mappings.
