Method Detail

getConstrainedElements

org.eclipse.emf.common.util.EList<
Element> getConstrainedElements()
Returns the value of the ' Constrained Element ' reference list. The list contents are of type Element. The ordered set of Elements referenced by this Constraint.

Returns:
the value of the 'Constrained Element' reference list.
See Also:
UMLPackage.getConstraint_ConstrainedElement()

getSpecification

ValueSpecification getSpecification()
Returns the value of the ' Specification ' containment reference.

This feature subsets the following features:

A condition that must be true when evaluated in order for the constraint to be satisfied.

Returns:
the value of the 'Specification' containment reference.
See Also:
setSpecification(ValueSpecification), UMLPackage.getConstraint_Specification()

setSpecification

void setSpecification(
ValueSpecification value)
Sets the value of the ' Specification' containment reference.

Parameters:
value - the new value of the 'Specification' containment reference.
See Also:
getSpecification()

createSpecification

ValueSpecification createSpecification(java.lang.String name,
                                       
Type type,
                                       org.eclipse.emf.ecore.EClass eClass)
Creates a new ValueSpecification, with the specified ' Name ', and ' Type ', and sets the ' Specification ' containment reference.

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

getContext

Namespace getContext()
Returns the value of the ' Context ' container reference. It is bidirectional and its opposite is ' Owned Rule'.

This feature subsets the following features:

Specifies the namespace that owns the NamedElement.

Returns:
the value of the 'Context' container reference.
See Also:
setContext(Namespace), UMLPackage.getConstraint_Context(), Namespace.getOwnedRules()

setContext

void setContext(
Namespace value)
Sets the value of the ' Context' container reference.

Parameters:
value - the new value of the 'Context' container reference.
See Also:
getContext()
