Method Detail

isCovering

boolean isCovering()
Returns the value of the ' Is Covering ' attribute. The default value is "false". Indicates (via the associated Generalizations) whether or not the set of specific Classifiers are covering for a particular general classifier. When isCovering is true, every instance of a particular general Classifier is also an instance of at least one of its specific Classifiers for the GeneralizationSet. When isCovering is false, there are one or more instances of the particular general Classifier that are not instances of at least one of its specific Classifiers defined for the GeneralizationSet.

Returns:
the value of the 'Is Covering' attribute.
See Also:
setIsCovering(boolean), UMLPackage.getGeneralizationSet_IsCovering()

setIsCovering

void setIsCovering(boolean value)
Sets the value of the ' Is Covering' attribute.

Parameters:
value - the new value of the 'Is Covering' attribute.
See Also:
isCovering()

isDisjoint

boolean isDisjoint()
Returns the value of the ' Is Disjoint ' attribute. The default value is "false". Indicates whether or not the set of specific Classifiers in a Generalization relationship have instance in common. If isDisjoint is true, the specific Classifiers for a particular GeneralizationSet have no members in common; that is, their intersection is empty. If isDisjoint is false, the specific Classifiers in a particular GeneralizationSet have one or more members in common; that is, their intersection is not empty. For example, Person could have two Generalization relationships, each with the different specific Classifier: Manager or Staff. This would be disjoint because every instance of Person must either be a Manager or Staff. In contrast, Person could have two Generalization relationships involving two specific (and non-covering) Classifiers: Sales Person and Manager. This GeneralizationSet would not be disjoint because there are instances of Person which can be a Sales Person and a Manager.

Returns:
the value of the 'Is Disjoint' attribute.
See Also:
setIsDisjoint(boolean), UMLPackage.getGeneralizationSet_IsDisjoint()

setIsDisjoint

void setIsDisjoint(boolean value)
Sets the value of the ' Is Disjoint' attribute.

Parameters:
value - the new value of the 'Is Disjoint' attribute.
See Also:
isDisjoint()

getPowertype

Classifier getPowertype()
Returns the value of the ' Powertype ' reference. It is bidirectional and its opposite is ' Powertype Extent'. Designates the Classifier that is defined as the power type for the associated GeneralizationSet.

Returns:
the value of the 'Powertype' reference.
See Also:
setPowertype(Classifier), UMLPackage.getGeneralizationSet_Powertype(), Classifier.getPowertypeExtents()

setPowertype

void setPowertype(
Classifier value)
Sets the value of the ' Powertype' reference.

Parameters:
value - the new value of the 'Powertype' reference.
See Also:
getPowertype()

getGeneralizations

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

Returns:
the value of the 'Generalization' reference list.
See Also:
UMLPackage.getGeneralizationSet_Generalization(), Generalization.getGeneralizationSets()

getGeneralization

Generalization getGeneralization(
Classifier general)
Retrieves the first Generalization with the specified ' General ' from the ' Generalization ' reference list.

Parameters:
general - The ' General ' of the Generalization to retrieve, or null.
Returns:
The first Generalization with the specified ' General ', or null.
See Also:
getGeneralizations()

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 particular GeneralizationSet must have the same general Classifier. generalization->collect(g | g.general)->asSet()->size() <= 1

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

validateMapsToGeneralizationSet

boolean validateMapsToGeneralizationSet(org.eclipse.emf.common.util.DiagnosticChain diagnostics,
                                        java.util.Map<java.lang.Object,java.lang.Object> context)
The Classifier that maps to a GeneralizationSet may neither be a specific nor a general Classifier in any of the Generalization relationships defined for that GeneralizationSet. In other words, a power type may not be an instance of itself nor may its instances be its subclasses. true

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