Interface Dependency

All Superinterfaces:
DirectedRelationship, Element, org.eclipse.emf.ecore.EModelElement, org.eclipse.emf.ecore.EObject, NamedElement, org.eclipse.emf.common.notify.Notifier, PackageableElement, ParameterableElement, Relationship
All Known Subinterfaces:

public interface Dependency
extends PackageableElement, DirectedRelationship

A representation of the model object ' Dependency '. A dependency is a relationship that signifies that a single or a set of model elements requires other model elements for their specification or implementation. This means that the complete semantics of the depending elements is either semantically or structurally dependent on the definition of the supplier element(s).

The following features are supported:

Method Detail

getSuppliers

org.eclipse.emf.common.util.EList<
NamedElement> getSuppliers()
Returns the value of the ' Supplier ' reference list. The list contents are of type NamedElement.

This feature subsets the following features:

The element(s) independent of the client element(s), in the same respect and the same dependency relationship. In some directed dependency relationships (such as Refinement Abstractions), a common convention in the domain of class-based OO software is to put the more abstract element in this role. Despite this convention, users of UML may stipulate a sense of dependency suitable for their domain, which makes a more abstract element dependent on that which is more specific.

Returns:
the value of the 'Supplier' reference list.
See Also:
UMLPackage.getDependency_Supplier()

getSupplier

NamedElement getSupplier(java.lang.String name)
Retrieves the first NamedElement with the specified ' Name ' from the ' Supplier ' reference list.

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

getSupplier

NamedElement getSupplier(java.lang.String name,
                         boolean ignoreCase,
                         org.eclipse.emf.ecore.EClass eClass)
Retrieves the first NamedElement with the specified ' Name ' from the ' Supplier ' reference list.

Parameters:
name - The ' Name ' of the NamedElement to retrieve, or null.
ignoreCase - Whether to ignore case in String comparisons.
eClass - The Ecore class of the NamedElement to retrieve, or null.
Returns:
The first NamedElement with the specified ' Name ', or null.
See Also:
getSuppliers()

getClients

org.eclipse.emf.common.util.EList<
NamedElement> getClients()
Returns the value of the ' Client ' reference list. The list contents are of type NamedElement. It is bidirectional and its opposite is ' Client Dependency'.

This feature subsets the following features:

The element(s) dependent on the supplier element(s). In some cases (such as a Trace Abstraction) the assignment of direction (that is, the designation of the client element) is at the discretion of the modeler, and is a stipulation.

Returns:
the value of the 'Client' reference list.
See Also:
UMLPackage.getDependency_Client(), NamedElement.getClientDependencies()

getClient

NamedElement getClient(java.lang.String name)
Retrieves the first NamedElement with the specified ' Name ' from the ' Client ' reference list.

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

getClient

NamedElement getClient(java.lang.String name,
                       boolean ignoreCase,
                       org.eclipse.emf.ecore.EClass eClass)
Retrieves the first NamedElement with the specified ' Name ' from the ' Client ' reference list.

Parameters:
name - The ' Name ' of the NamedElement to retrieve, or null.
ignoreCase - Whether to ignore case in String comparisons.
eClass - The Ecore class of the NamedElement to retrieve, or null.
Returns:
The first NamedElement with the specified ' Name ', or null.

getClients()
