org.eclipse.uml2.uml
Interface CollaborationUse

All Superinterfaces:
Element, org.eclipse.emf.ecore.EModelElement, org.eclipse.emf.ecore.EObject, NamedElement, org.eclipse.emf.common.notify.Notifier

public interface CollaborationUse
extends NamedElement

A representation of the model object ' Collaboration Use '. A collaboration use represents one particular use of a collaboration to explain the relationships between the properties of a classifier. A collaboration use shows how the pattern described by a collaboration is applied in a given context, by binding specific entities from that context to the roles of the collaboration. Depending on the context, these entities could be structural features of a classifier, instance specifications, or even roles in some containing collaboration. There may be multiple occurrences of a given collaboration within a classifier, each involving a different set of roles and connectors. A given role or connector may be involved in multiple occurrences of the same or different collaborations. Associated dependencies map features of the collaboration type to features in the classifier. These dependencies indicate which role in the classifier plays which role in the collaboration.

The following features are supported:

Method Detail

getType

Collaboration getType()
Returns the value of the ' Type ' reference. The collaboration which is used in this occurrence. The collaboration defines the cooperation between its roles which are mapped to properties of the classifier owning the collaboration use.

Returns:
the value of the 'Type' reference.
See Also:
setType(Collaboration), UMLPackage.getCollaborationUse_Type()

setType

void setType(
Collaboration value)
Sets the value of the ' Type' reference.

Parameters:
value - the new value of the 'Type' reference.
See Also:
getType()

getRoleBindings

org.eclipse.emf.common.util.EList<
Dependency> getRoleBindings()
Returns the value of the ' Role Binding ' containment reference list. The list contents are of type Dependency.

This feature subsets the following features:

A mapping between features of the collaboration type and features of the classifier or operation. This mapping indicates which connectable element of the classifier or operation plays which role(s) in the collaboration. A connectable element may be bound to multiple roles in the same collaboration use (that is, it may play multiple roles).

Returns:
the value of the 'Role Binding' containment reference list.
See Also:
UMLPackage.getCollaborationUse_RoleBinding()

createRoleBinding

Dependency createRoleBinding(java.lang.String name,
                             org.eclipse.emf.ecore.EClass eClass)
Creates a new Dependency, with the specified ' Name ', and appends it to the ' Role Binding ' containment reference list.

Parameters:
name - The ' Name ' for the new Dependency, or null.
eClass - The Ecore class of the Dependency to create.
Returns:
The new Dependency.
See Also:
getRoleBindings()

createRoleBinding

Dependency createRoleBinding(java.lang.String name)
Creates a new Dependency, with the specified ' Name ', and appends it to the ' Role Binding ' containment reference list.

Parameters:
name - The ' Name ' for the new Dependency, or null.
Returns:
The new Dependency.
See Also:
getRoleBindings()

getRoleBinding

Dependency getRoleBinding(java.lang.String name)
Retrieves the first Dependency with the specified ' Name ' from the ' Role Binding ' containment reference list.

Parameters:
name - The ' Name ' of the Dependency to retrieve, or null.
Returns:
The first Dependency with the specified ' Name ', or null.
See Also:
getRoleBindings()

getRoleBinding

Dependency getRoleBinding(java.lang.String name,
                          boolean ignoreCase,

                          boolean createOnDemand)
Retrieves the first Dependency with the specified ' Name ' from the ' Role Binding ' containment reference list.

Parameters:

ignoreCase - Whether to ignore case in String comparisons.
eClass - The Ecore class of the Dependency to retrieve, or null.
createOnDemand - Whether to create a Dependency on demand if not found.
