public interface Action
extends ExecutableNode

A representation of the model object ' Action '. An action is a named element that is the fundamental unit of executable functionality. The execution of an action represents some transformation or processing in the modeled system, be it a computer system or otherwise. An action represents a single step within an activity, that is, one that is not further decomposed within the activity. An action has pre- and post-conditions.

The following features are supported:
