public interface Extend
extends NamedElement, DirectedRelationship

A representation of the model object ' Extend '. A relationship from an extending use case to an extended use case that specifies how and when the behavior defined in the extending use case can be inserted into the behavior defined in the extended use case.

The following features are supported:

Method Detail

getExtendedCase

UseCase getExtendedCase()
Returns the value of the ' Extended Case ' reference.

This feature subsets the following features:

References the use case that is being extended.

Returns:
the value of the 'Extended Case' reference.
See Also:
setExtendedCase(UseCase), UMLPackage.getExtend_ExtendedCase()

setExtendedCase

void setExtendedCase(
UseCase value)
Sets the value of the ' Extended Case' reference.

Parameters:
value - the new value of the 'Extended Case' reference.
See Also:
getExtendedCase()

getCondition

Constraint getCondition()
Returns the value of the ' Condition ' containment reference.

This feature subsets the following features:

References the condition that must hold when the first extension point is reached for the extension to take place. If no constraint is associated with the extend relationship, the extension is unconditional.

Returns:
the value of the 'Condition' containment reference.
See Also:
setCondition(Constraint), UMLPackage.getExtend_Condition()

setCondition

void setCondition(
Constraint value)
Sets the value of the ' Condition' containment reference.

Parameters:
value - the new value of the 'Condition' containment reference.
See Also:
getCondition()

createCondition

Constraint createCondition(java.lang.String name,
                           org.eclipse.emf.ecore.EClass eClass)
Creates a new Constraint, with the specified ' Name ', and sets the ' Condition ' containment reference.

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

createCondition

Constraint createCondition(java.lang.String name)
Creates a new Constraint,with the specified ' Name ', and sets the ' Condition ' containment reference.

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

getExtensionLocations

org.eclipse.emf.common.util.EList<
ExtensionPoint> getExtensionLocations()
Returns the value of the ' Extension Location ' reference list. The list contents are of type ExtensionPoint. An ordered list of extension points belonging to the extended use case, specifying where the respective behavioral fragments of the extending use case are to be inserted. The first fragment in the extending use case is associated with the first extension point in the list, the second fragment with the second point, and so on. (Note that, in most practical cases, the extending use case has just a single behavior fragment, so that the list of extension points is trivial.)

Returns:
the value of the 'Extension Location' reference list.
See Also:
UMLPackage.getExtend_ExtensionLocation()

getExtensionLocation

ExtensionPoint getExtensionLocation(java.lang.String name)
Retrieves the first ExtensionPoint with the specified ' Name ' from the ' Extension Location ' reference list.

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

getExtensionLocation

ExtensionPoint getExtensionLocation(java.lang.String name,
                                    boolean ignoreCase)
Retrieves the first ExtensionPoint with the specified ' Name ' from the ' Extension Location ' reference list.

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

getExtension

UseCase getExtension()
Returns the value of the ' Extension ' container reference. It is bidirectional and its opposite is ' Extend'.

This feature subsets the following features:

References the use case that represents the extension and owns the extend relationship.

Returns:
the value of the 'Extension' container reference.
See Also:
setExtension(UseCase), UMLPackage.getExtend_Extension(), UseCase.getExtends()

setExtension

void setExtension(
UseCase value)
Sets the value of the ' Extension' container reference.

Parameters:
value - the new value of the 'Extension' container reference.
See Also:
getExtension()

validateExtensionPoints

boolean validateExtensionPoints(org.eclipse.emf.common.util.DiagnosticChain diagnostics,
                                java.util.Map<java.lang.Object,java.lang.Object> context)
The extension points referenced by the extend relationship must belong to the use case that is being extended. extensionLocation->forAll (xp | extendedCase.extensionPoint->includes(xp))

Parameters:
diagnostics - The chain of diagnostics to which problems are to be appended.
context - The cache of context-specific information.
