org.eclipse.uml2.uml
Interface Generalization

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

public interface Generalization
extends DirectedRelationship

A representation of the model object ' Generalization '. A generalization is a taxonomic relationship between a more general classifier and a more specific classifier. Each instance of the specific classifier is also an indirect instance of the general classifier. Thus, the specific classifier inherits the features of the more general classifier. A generalization relates a specific classifier to a more general classifier, and is owned by the specific classifier.

The following features are supported:

Method Detail

isSubstitutable

boolean isSubstitutable()
Returns the value of the ' Is Substitutable ' attribute. The default value is "true". Indicates whether the specific classifier can be used wherever the general classifier can be used. If true, the execution traces of the specific classifier will be a superset of the execution traces of the general classifier.

Returns:
the value of the 'Is Substitutable' attribute.
See Also:
setIsSubstitutable(boolean), UMLPackage.getGeneralization_IsSubstitutable()

setIsSubstitutable

void setIsSubstitutable(boolean value)
Sets the value of the ' Is Substitutable' attribute.

Parameters:
value - the new value of the 'Is Substitutable' attribute.
See Also:
isSubstitutable()

getGeneral

Classifier getGeneral()
Returns the value of the ' General ' reference.

This feature subsets the following features:

References the general classifier in the Generalization relationship.

Returns:
the value of the 'General' reference.
See Also:
setGeneral(Classifier), UMLPackage.getGeneralization_General()

setGeneral

void setGeneral(
Classifier value)
Sets the value of the ' General' reference.

Parameters:
value - the new value of the 'General' reference.
See Also:
getGeneral()

getGeneralizationSets

org.eclipse.emf.common.util.EList<
GeneralizationSet> getGeneralizationSets()
Returns the value of the ' Generalization Set ' reference list. The list contents are of type GeneralizationSet. It is bidirectional and its opposite is ' Generalization'. Designates a set in which instances of Generalization is considered members.

Returns:
the value of the 'Generalization Set' reference list.
See Also:
UMLPackage.getGeneralization_GeneralizationSet(), GeneralizationSet.getGeneralizations()

getGeneralizationSet

GeneralizationSet getGeneralizationSet(java.lang.String name)
Retrieves the first GeneralizationSet with the specified ' Name ' from the ' Generalization Set ' reference list.

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

getGeneralizationSet

GeneralizationSet getGeneralizationSet(java.lang.String name,
                                       boolean ignoreCase)
Retrieves the first GeneralizationSet with the specified ' Name ' from the ' Generalization Set ' reference list.

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

getSpecific

Classifier getSpecific()
Returns the value of the ' Specific ' container reference. It is bidirectional and its opposite is ' Generalization'.

This feature subsets the following features:

References the specializing classifier in the Generalization relationship.

Returns:
the value of the 'Specific' container reference.
See Also:
setSpecific(Classifier), UMLPackage.getGeneralization_Specific(), Classifier.getGeneralizations()

setSpecific

void setSpecific(
Classifier value)
Sets the value of the ' Specific' container reference.

Parameters:
value - the new value of the 'Specific' container reference.
See Also:
getSpecific()

validateGeneralizationSameClassifier

boolean validateGeneralizationSameClassifier(org.eclipse.emf.common.util.DiagnosticChain diagnostics,
                                             java.util.Map<java.lang.Object,java.lang.Object> context)
Every Generalization associated with a given GeneralizationSet must have the same general Classifier. That is, all Generalizations for a particular GeneralizationSet must have the same superclass. true

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