  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    Please note however, that (as far as I can see) Parameter only occurs in Kernel, NOT in AssociationClasses. So the correct statement would be "Parameter (from Kernel). This might bear a relation to the already existing FTF issue 8117.

  • Disposition: Resolved — UML 2.1.2
  • Disposition Summary:

    Discussion: This is definitely outside the scope of an RTF. However, it is also very much against one of the fundamental architectural principles of UML, that the abstract and concrete syntaxes are to be kept distinct. For instance, it should be possible to provide a UML concrete syntax that is completely textual and, hence, has no notion of diagram. Finally, the question of defining concrete syntaxes for MOF-based modeling languages and the issue of how these relate to the models themselves is being addressed by a separate RFP (the “Diagram Definition RFP”). Disposition: Closed, no change

Setting structural features of a data type

  • Key: UML22-1121
  • Legacy Issue Number: 10816
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Model Driven Solutions ( Ed Seidewitz)
  • Summary:

    Document: Unified Modeling Language: Superstructure, Version 2.1.1 (formal/2007-02-03)
    Sections: 11.3.12 (ClearStructuralFeatureAction) and 11.3.53 (WriteStructuralFeatureAction)

    (This issue surfaced during work on the Semantics of a Foundational Subset for Executable UML Models submission.)

    Background:

    Use the term "structured" data type to refer to a data type that is not a primitive type or an enumeration. Such a data type may have attributes, which can be read and written by the read and write structural feature actions (for the purposes of this discussion, consider clear structural feature action to be a kind of write structural feature action).

    Semantically, the main difference between a data value that is an instance of a structured data type and an object that is an instance of a class is that a data value is passed "by value" while an object is passed "by reference". That is, a data value is itself a true value that can be passed as a parameter value to behavior and can flow on "object" flow edges ("object flow" really isn't a better name than "data flow", but the way...). On the other hand, an object exists with its own identity in the extent of their class at a specific locus, and only references to an object can be passed as values.

    Thus, there may be many references all to the same object. As a result of this, any change to the attributes of an object via one reference will be reflected in future reads of that attribute via different references to that object.

    In the case of a structured data value, however, a change to one of its attributes will only be reflected in the value actually being acted on. If that value is not then itself passed on, this change will not be visible in any other data value. Unfortunately, write structural feature actions do not have output pins. The assumption seems to be that such writes always happen "in place". This works for objects that have their own identity, but there is no clear "place" for which the change can happen for structured data values.

    Note that this would still be an issue even if variables were allowed in fUML (and so it is an issue in full UML 2 with variables, too). To change a value in a variable, one needs to use a read variable action. If the value in the variable is a structured data value, then the read variable action will place a "by value" copy of the data value on the output pin of the action (since data values don't have identity or references, it can't really do anything else...). Therefore, a write structural value action acting on the output of a read variable action will make a change to this copy, not the value in the variable. But then, since the write structural value action has no output pin, there is no way to get the changed copy back into the variable (or use it in any other way, for that matter.)

    Proposed resolution:

    Add an output pin to write structural feature actions. If the "object" being acted on is really an object (that is, an instance of a class), then the input reference to that object is just place on the output pin. But if the "object" being acted on is a data value (that is, an instance of a structured data type), then the value placed on the output pin is a copy of the input data value, but with the given structural feature value appropriately updated.

    (Note that the output pin is not strictly necessary for a true object update, but it seems simpler to always have the output pin. In the case of a write to an object, the output pin can simply be ignored – though it might sometimes be convenient even in this case for "chaining" actions on an object.)

Flowing data into decision input behaviors

  • Key: UML22-1120
  • Legacy Issue Number: 10815
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Model Driven Solutions ( Ed Seidewitz)
  • Summary:

    Document: Unified Modeling Language: Superstructure, Version 2.1.1 (formal/2007-02-03)
    Sections: 12.3.22, DecisionNode

    (This issue surfaced during work on the Semantics of a Foundational Subset for Executable UML Models submission.)

    Background

    There is no direct way to flow a supporting value into the decision input behavior of a decision node.

    Suppose one wants to set up a decision node with a decision input behavior that, say, takes an object as an input and tests whether an attribute of that object has a certain value. Further, suppose that value is given by an input parameter of the enclosing activity. The value of the parameter is provided via an activity parameter node, but there is no direct way to connect an object flow from the activity parameter node to the test for the decision node.

    Currently, a decision input behavior can only have a single input parameter, which will get the object flowing into the decision node that is to be tested. And, since it is a separate behavior from the enclosing activity, a flow from the enclosing activity can't be connected into the decision behavior. Of course, it would be possible to save the parameter value into an attribute of the enclosing activity, and then read that attribute in the decision behavior – but this seems awfully round about!

    Note that there is no problem using a Conditional Node since, in that case, the test is not a separate behavior, and data can flow from the enclosing action into the test. It is just with (the supposedly simpler) Decision Node that there is a problem.

    Proposal

    Decision nodes may optionally have one additional incoming edge identified as the "decision input". If there is no decision input behavior, tokens offered on the decision input edge are made available to the guards on outgoing edges to determine whether the offer on the other incoming edge is passed along that edge. If there is a decision input behavior and a decision input edge, the token offered on the decision input edge is passed to the behavior (as the only argument if the regular incoming edge is control flow, as the second argument if it is object flow). Decision nodes with the additional decision input edge will offer tokens to outgoing edges only when one token is offered on each incoming edge.

Any ownedBehavior should be able to have AcceptEventAction

  • Key: UML22-1135
  • Legacy Issue Number: 11265
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: International Business Machines ( Jim Amsden)
  • Summary:

    Section 13.3.31, Trigger indicates the receipt of an event by and active object can either directly cause the occurrence of a behavior, or is delivered to the classifier behavior. This is insufficient. An Event should be able to be handled by any active AcceptEventAction in any thread of control in any running method Activity that is an ownedBehavior of the receiving object. This is how events are commonly handled in business process models and BPEL. It allows an active object to indicate when it is able to accept a call or signal event at a specific point in an already running method activity. If there are more than one such AcceptEventAction, then the AcceptEventAction that handles the event is arbitrary.

Section: 9.3.11 p 182

  • Key: UML22-1129
  • Legacy Issue Number: 11087
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: UPM ( Juan Pedro Silva)
  • Summary:

    All rolenames in non-navigable associations in the UML metamodel should be stated, to allow reaching from one element of the association to the other using OCL. Currently, this is limited to un-ambigous type names if the rolename is not stated. For example, in section "9.3.11 Port (from Ports)", Port has required and provided interfaces, and has no rolename on both associations. There is no current way, using OCL, of getting from one Interface to a Port that provides or requires it, as "self.port" is ambigous because it doesn't specify if the programmer is looking for Ports providing or requiring such Interface. The situation repeats in many other associations.

  • Reported: UML 2.1.1 — Thu, 31 May 2007 04:00 GMT
  • Disposition: Resolved — UML 2.1.2
  • Disposition Summary:

    Discussion: It is not required for the specification to name such associations. Navigation is not that hard if this is really desired: find all ports and select the subset that has the appropriate interface. Also, OCL is not constrained by navigability. Discussion: Closed, no change

  • Summary:

    In the OCL and the paragraph discussing required and provided interfaces there is no mention of inheriting provided or required interfaces from the supertypes of the component.
    Should we also consider required or provided interfaces of inherited ports?
    Should we also consider supertypes of realizing classifiers?

    The fact that Components don't consider supertypes is contrary to how Ports get required and provided interfaces on p187. Ports consider supertypes of the classifiers that type them when collecting required and provided interfaces.

    Resolution: The dynamic semantics of a port, when it is typed by a class, is already a semantic variation point. Most of the text above is an example, rather than a definition of behavior. The only normative text above is that the interaction point object will be an instance of the type of the port, if the port is typed by a class. That aspect is currently used by tools to give dynamic semantics to ports in a domain-specific manner. If such is not desired, the modeler can always close the semantic variation point as to the meaning of this construct to behave as desired, e.g., to reduce to the case where the type of the port is an interface.

But how is it possible to describe the Trigger owned by a classifier? What is the notation for a class to specify which Trigger a class is owning?
    In previous version of UML, it was clear in my head (it does no harm just this once that the description of the behavioral features (either Operations, or Receptions) of a class was implicitly the description of what kind of events a class may reponse to. But now, one hand a class specify its behavioral features, but what happen with its Triggers? Is the description of the behavioral features of a class the implicit description of its Triggers? But in this case, as Trigger are linked to Events, what is the need this intermediate concept of Triggers?

    Issue a: ) in behaviour description (section 13.3.2 – doc ptc/2006-04-02, v.2.1) precise more formally and explicitely which elements can have behaviors, and how the behavior context is defined.

    Typically clarification should say something like:

    • [A] Any subclasses of BehavioredClassifier (that is: Collaboration, Class, Actor, UseCase) can have a Behavior and its context is defined through the “context” association
    • [B] Any subclasses of BehavioralFeature (that is: xxx to be listed xxx) can have a Behavior and its context is defined through the “specification” association
    • [C] Additionally, Transitions and States can have a Behavior and its context is defined by the first BehavioredClassifier reached through their “owned” relation
    • [D] A Behavior can stand alone and be its own context (e.g. as equivalent to a C/C++ program)

    è Is it here necessary to add a context association from the Behavior to itself…? or should we consider that in this case it is always owned by a modelling element (eg a package) that defines its context… and should we explicitly define to which kind of element this can be considered and add these elements to the list of the [C] situation ?

    Discussion: The issue is somewhat confusing in its wording when it asks what “elements can have behaviors”. In one reading, only BehavioredClassifier can have behaviors. Probably the issue means to ask what “elements can own behaviors”. It would be not in the style of the UML specification to summarize in a central location such information, as this would conflict with the object-oriented style of the specification, or it would cause a maintenance difficulty. Behavior::context clearly defines how the context object is determined, independent of the type of behavior or its owner. Disposition: Closed, no change

  • Key: UML22-1112
  • Legacy Issue Number: 10655
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: International Business Machines ( Jim Amsden)
  • Summary:

    Section 13.3.3, in the description of Behavior::specification says: "If a behavior does not have a specification, it is directly associated with a classifier (i.t., it is the behavior of the classifier as a whole."

    This appears to be incorrect. Assuming the "associated classifier" is the context Classifier: a Behavior might not be an ownedBehavior of any Classifier and has no context. For example, and Activity in a Package. Such a Behavior could not have a specification, but is not the behavior of any associated classifier.

    An ownedBehavior of a context Classifier can be explicitly designated as the behavior of the classifier using the BehavioredClassifier::classifierBehavior property. So there should be no need to define implicit classifier behaviors.

    Finally, a BehavioredClassifier might contain any number of ownedBehaviors that factor out reusable, private functions that are used in the implementations of other ownedBehaviors. These behaviors could be invoked using CallBehaviorActions and do not need specification operations. These behaviors would need a parameter for self if they need to refer to information in the context classifier.

A notation for Trigger

  • Key: UML22-1088
  • Legacy Issue Number: 9750

  • Source: Commissariat a l Energie Atomique-CEA ( Sebastien Gerard)
  • Summary:

    My new question is about the notation for Trigger. In on ehand, I understand the notation as described in section 13.3.31 (p. 475) for specifyng the trigger of a transition in a statemachine (even if it is not so clear because the notation for Trigger refers in fact to the notation of event (p475) ?). But how is it possible to describe the Trigger owned by a classifier? What is the notation for a class to specify which Trigger a class is owning?
    In previous version of UML, it was clear in my head (it does no harm just this once that the description of the behavioral features (either Operations, or Receptions) of a class was implicitly the description of what kind of events a class may reponse to. But now, one hand a class specify its behavioral features, but what happen with its Triggers? Is the description of the behavioral features of a class the implicit description of its Triggers? But in this case, as Trigger are linked to Events, what is the need this intermediate concept of Triggers?

UML2: No notation for BehavioredClassifier::ownedTrigger

  • Key: UML22-1084
  • Legacy Issue Number: 9407
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: International Business Machines ( Jim Amsden)
  • Summary:

    UML2 provides a number of different ways to initiatiate execution of some behavior, and for specifying what behaviors are offered for invocation. Behaviors provide a realization of these specifications.

    The simplest is a BehavioredClassifier can respond to invocations of its ownedBehaviors through a CallOperationAction. The ownedBehavior is a method of a specification Operation which defines the client interface, external view, signature, contract (whatever one likes to call it) of the behavior.

    If the ownedBehavior is an Activity, then the activity may contain any number of AcceptEventAction or AcceptCallAction/ReplyAction actions to enable the activity to control when and how additional behavior may be invoked by clients in the context of some broader, perhaps long-running activity. Both AcceptEventAction and AcceptCallAction have trigger: Triger properties whose event: Event could be a SignalEvent or CallEvent respectively. A BehavioredClassifier should indicate to clients its ability to receive the corresponding SignalEvent or CallEvent by including an ownedTrigger designating the event it is prepared to receive.

    However, there is no notation specified for BehavioredClassifier::ownedTrigger. In addition, there are other ways to specify the ability to receive signal and/or call events that may make ownedTrigger redundant. The ability to receive a SignalEvent can be denoted by an ownedReception: Reception in a Class. The notation for an ownedReception is a <<signal>> Operation where the operation name is the Signal name, and the in parameters provide the values for the signal's ownedAttributes. There can be no inout, out, or return parameters, and no raisedExceptions. An ownedOperation is all that is needed to indicate the ability to receive a CallEvent.

    The metamodel for ownedTrigger needs to be reconciled with ownedOperation and ownedReception. Perhaps the notation should provide a way to distinguish operations that invoke behaviors and operations that indicate the ability to respond to call events as <<trigger>> operations.

    A TemplateParameterSubstitution corresponds to exactly one template parameter, but the metamodel allows multiple actual arguments to be supplied for the parameter. There does not seem to be any compelling reason for multiple arguments to be provided for a single template parameter in a substitution (nor are the semantics of this clearl). Therefore, the multiplicity of TemplateParameterSubstitution::actual and Template ParameterSubstitution::ownedActual should be restricted to [1].

All non-abstract subclasses of StructuredClassifer (such as Collaboration and EncapsulatedClassifier) are in Level 2. Because of this there is no class that can own Connector instances in a model that uses only Level 1 constructs. Therefore Connectors can’t be used in a Level 1 compliant model

  • Legacy Issue Number: 8946
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Bergson TA ( Marc Hamilton)
  • Summary:

    A Property is a ConnectableElement, which currently is (should be?) a TypedElement. The Description in 9.3.5 however states: "A ConnectableElement is an abstract metaclass representing a set of instances that play roles of a classifier. Connectable elements may be joined by attached connectors and specify configurations of linked instances to be created within an instance of the containing classifier. Note on p.84 states: "When used to specify the existence of an entity in a modelled system, an instance specification represents part of that system." In 9.3.12. it says:"When an instance of the containing classifier is created, a set of instances corresponding to its properties may be created either immediately or at some later time. These instances are instances of the classifier typing the property. A property specifies that a set of instances may exist; this set of instances is a subset of the total set of instances specified by the classifier typing the property. A part declares that an instance of this classifier may contain a set of instances by composition." So, the concepts must be related. I propose that a ConnectableElement is a specialization of InstanceSpecification, not just a TypedElement. Current problems in practise: A TypedElement is not a PackageableElement and it thus cannot be imported in some other namespace. This makes is hard to create orthogonal views of architectures (e.g. logical vs. execution) in which 'roles' (parts!) are shared. On the other hand, using InstanceSpecifications instead of "Parts" makes it impossible to refer them in interactions. Besides, the meaning of an InstanceSpecification in the context of a classifier is unclear in contrast to the Property.

  • Disposition: Resolved — UML 2.1.2
  • Disposition Summary:

    Discussion: The concept of connectable element is not an instance specification, so it would be a mistake to make it a specialization of InstanceSpecification. As the issue also points out, doing so would cause problems with interactions (where connectable elements are heavily used) as well as with their meaning. The issue really at hand appears to be that ConnectableElements are not packageable elements. The reason is that they have really no meaning outside of the context of the classifier they are owned by and thus would not be packaged separately. Disposition: Closed, no change

  • Summary:

    This is a question or an issue for the UML 2.0 Superstructure and Infrastructure Revision Task Force (http://www.omg.org/issues/uml2-rtf.html An operation, e.g. Core::Constructs::Operation does no longer contain the isAbstract attribute (compared to UML version 1.5). I could not find a note in any of the classes within the inheritance hierarchy stating that this is a change to the 1.x versions. Was this attribute intentionally dropped for version 2.0? If yes, what is the suggested replacement?

This is not what is shown in fig. 311. Multiplicities for remaining associations listed do not agree between the text and the diagrams (fig. 311 & 313). Multiplicities should probably be [0..*] which are not what are shown in figs. 311 & 313. Add the specialization for the association redefinedBehavior:Behavior in the text to agree with fig. 311.

TimeObservationAction and DurationObservationAction

  • Key: UML22-543
  • Legacy Issue Number: 7406
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Missouri University of Science and Technology ( Thomas Weigert)
  • Summary:

    TimeObservationAction and DurationObservationAction are described as actions, but are not really actions like the actions of the action chapter. They would never be used when defining a behavior, but are part of a metalanguage to define temporal constraints and to refer to measured times and durations in formulating such constraints. However, these two elements are the only aspects of this language, everything else is left to be defined later (see TimeExpression). Putting these two mechanisms into the specifications unduly constrains any profile that would want to define a notation for expressing temporal constraints. Such a language might not see a need to use the actions described in this chapter. My recommendation is to find a different way of expressing time observations and duration observations in the metamodel. The syntax examples clearly show that they are not meant to be used within an activity as actions. Note that the only way to use these observations is to create a "fake" activity attached to the interaction (e.g., as a nestedClassifier) which contains only this action. A rather convoluted and heavy-weight means of expressing the simple concept of "NOW" (as the point in time when some model element is executed). A simpler mechanism is clearly needed.

Interactions model sequences of events

  • Key: UML22-540
  • Legacy Issue Number: 7392
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Missouri University of Science and Technology ( Thomas Weigert)
  • Summary:

    Interactions model sequences of events. The metaclass EventOccurrence represents the occurrence of an event. Currently, there are the following kinds of events known: i. sending of a message ii. receiving of a message iii. start of the execution of a behavior iv. finish of the execution of a behavior v. stop First, clearly, there could be many more events that one might want to represent on a lifeline. In particular, the invocation of an action is a possible event, and should be allowed to be represented. Secondly, event occurrence is modeled poorly. It is shown as a kind of message end, which means that every event occurrence inherits the notion of being a message end point, even if the event has nothing to do with a message (such as a stop event). Clearly the inheritance hierarchy is inverted. A message end can represent an event occurrence (such as the sending or receiving of a message). But not every event occurrence is a message event.

simple time model" in CommonBehavior

  • Key: UML22-537
  • Legacy Issue Number: 7303
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Missouri University of Science and Technology ( Thomas Weigert)
  • Summary:

    For the "simple time model" in CommonBehavior, it is unclear when the DurationObservationAction and TimeObservationAction would be executed. For one, it is not stated when these actions are executed. I assume that when the execution of the model reaches the point of the attached model elements, then these actions are executed. Several problems: It is unclear what determines when these actions are executed. If the actions are embedded in a sequence of actions, where control flow indicates when they execute, what is the meaning of the association to a named element? If that named element is reached later in the execution, does the execution wait? If it is reached earlier, does that element have to wait until the action sequence is enabled? (ii) There should be some constraint on the "NamedElements" associated with TimeExpression that limits those to elements that can be enountered during execution, as these elements appear to determine when these actions are evaluated. There is a tension between these actions being embedded in a sequence of actions where their execution is determined by the control and data flow, and the associated "NamedElements" that would determine the observation of time also. Normally, actions are used within a sequence of actions (an activity). These two actions are different in that they seem to make no sense within an activity due to that they have very special invocation points. They seem to only make sense as stand-alone elements. Maybe it should not be an action, but some other model element, that should dictate how time and duration are observed.

UML 2 Issue: definition of navigability

  • Key: UML22-501
  • Legacy Issue Number: 6460
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Simula Research Laboratory ( Bran Selic)
  • Summary:

    PROBLEM STATEMENT
    There is no definition for navigability or navigation in the Spec. Other
    concepts of similar importance, such as visibility, multiplicity, etc., are
    defined in the Spec, so it is not clear why it should be assumed that this
    concept does not require a definition.

    PROPOSED SOLUTION
    Add definition in Section 4 (Terms and definitions): The navigability of a
    binary association specifies the ability of an instance of the source
    classifier to access the instances of the target classifier by means of the
    association instances (links) that connect them. Navigability is closely
    related to the possibility of sending messages through associations (a
    message cannot be sent through an association instance against its
    navigability, that is, navigability is required for sending messages through
    associations), but they remain nonetheless different concepts.

    2. The functions contents and allContents are used to receive all composite and aggregate elements of namespace according to specification of these functions (Is that right ?). For example all overriden functions in the descedent elements (Package, DataType) release these functions in this manner. In this case function contents must be realized as: contents = self.ownedElement 3.The functions contents and allContents is sometimes used to receive list of «accessable» objects ! For example: definition constraint #2 for BehavioralFeature (p. 2-54): [2] The type of the Parameters should be included in the Namespace of the Classifier. self.parameter->forAll( p | self.owner.namespace.allContents->includes (p.type) ) Why parameter can't use imported DataType ? Why parameter can't use DataType located in the Namespace binded with the namespace of classifier by «friend» Permission ? Note that DataType may be included in the namespace of namespace of owner. It also may be included directly into owner ! I may send the collection of such errors («contents» instead of «acessable»).

    Sending a signal after a delay

  • Reported: XMI 1.3 — Tue, 5 Mar 2002 05:00 GMT
  • Disposition: Resolved — UML 2.1.2
  • Disposition Summary:

    The feature requested is already supported in UML 2.1: Precede an action by an AcceptEventAction, where the latter references a trigger that refers to a TimeEvent. Thus, for example, if you have a sequence of an AcceptEventAction with a TimeEvent specifyinig the desired delay and a SendSignalAction, then the signal will not be sent until the delay has passed. Note that this feature is extremely generic, probably giving the user even too much support (you can define a statemachine purely with actions, if there are not proper constraint placed on the events allowed in the AcceptEventAction).
