public interface BehavioralFeature
extends Namespace, Feature

A representation of the model object ' Behavioral Feature '. A behavioral feature is a feature of a classifier that specifies an aspect of the behavior of its instances. A behavioral feature is implemented (realized) by a behavior. A behavioral feature specifies that a classifier will respond to a designated request by invoking its implementing method. A behavioral feature owns zero or more parameter sets.

The following features are supported:

type - The ' Type ' for the new Parameter, or null.
Returns:
The new Parameter.

See Also:
getOwnedParameters()

isAbstract

boolean isAbstract()
Returns the value of the ' Is Abstract ' attribute. The default value is "false". If true, then the behavioral feature does not have an implementation, and one must be supplied by a more specific element. If false, the behavioral feature must have an implementation in the classifier or one must be inherited from a more general element.

Returns:
the value of the 'Is Abstract' attribute.
See Also:
setIsAbstract(boolean), UMLPackage.getBehavioralFeature_IsAbstract()

setIsAbstract

void setIsAbstract(boolean value)
Sets the value of the ' Is Abstract' attribute.

Parameters:
value - the new value of the 'Is Abstract' attribute.
See Also:
isAbstract()

getMethods

A behavioral description that implements the behavioral feature. There may be at most one behavior for a particular pairing of a classifier (as owner of the behavior) and a behavioral feature (as specification of the behavior).

Returns:
the value of the 'Method' reference list.
