A representation of the model object ' Classifier '. A classifier is a classification of instances - it describes a set of instances that have features in common. A classifier can specify a generalization hierarchy by referencing its general classifiers. A classifier has the capability to own collaboration uses. These collaboration uses link a collaboration with the classifier to give a description of the workings of the classifier. A classifier has the capability to own use cases. Although the owning classifier typically represents the subject to which the owned use cases apply, this is not necessarily the case. In principle, the same use case can be applied to multiple subjects, as identified by the subject association role of a use case. Classifier is defined to be a kind of templateable element so that a classifier can be parameterized. It is also defined to be a kind of parameterable element so that a classifier can be a formal template parameter.

The following features are supported:

maySpecializeType

boolean maySpecializeType(
Classifier c)
The query maySpecializeType() determines whether this classifier may have a generalization relationship to classifiers of the specified type. By default a classifier may specialize classifiers of the same or a more general type. It is intended to be redefined by classifiers that have different specialization constraints. result = self.oclIsKindOf(c.oclType)


allFeatures

org.eclipse.emf.common.util.EList<
Feature> allFeatures()
The query allFeatures() gives all of the features in the namespace of the classifier. In general, through mechanisms such as inheritance, this will be a larger set than feature. result = member->select(oclIsKindOf(Feature))


parents

org.eclipse.emf.common.util.EList<
Classifier> parents()
The query parents() gives all of the immediate ancestors of a generalized Classifier. result = generalization.general


inheritableMembers

org.eclipse.emf.common.util.EList<
NamedElement> inheritableMembers(
Classifier c)
The query inheritableMembers() gives all of the members of a classifier that may be inherited in one of its descendants, subject to whatever visibility restrictions apply. c.allParents()->includes(self) result = member->select(m | c.hasVisibilityOf(m))


hasVisibilityOf

boolean hasVisibilityOf(
NamedElement n)
The query hasVisibilityOf() determines whether a named element is visible in the classifier. By default all are visible. It is only called when the argument is something owned by a parent. self.allParents()->collect(c | c.member)->includes(n) result = if (self.inheritedMember->includes(n)) then (n.visibility <> #private) else true


conformsTo

boolean conformsTo(
Classifier other)

This operation redefines the following operations:

The query conformsTo() gives true for a classifier that defines a type that conforms to another. This is used, for example, in the specification of signature conformance for operations. result = (self=other) or (self.allParents()->includes(other))


inherit

org.eclipse.emf.common.util.EList<
NamedElement> inherit(org.eclipse.emf.common.util.EList<
NamedElement> inhs)
The inherit operation is overridden to exclude redefined properties. The query inherit() defines how to inherit a set of elements. Here the operation is defined to inherit them all. It is intended to be redefined in circumstances where inheritance is affected by redefinition. result = inhs


allParents

org.eclipse.emf.common.util.EList<
Classifier> allParents()
The query allParents() gives all of the direct and indirect ancestors of a generalized Classifier. result = self.parents()->union(self.parents()->collect(p | p.allParents())
