org.eclipse.uml2.uml
Interface InformationItem

All Superinterfaces:
Classifier, Element, org.eclipse.emf.ecore.EModelElement, org.eclipse.emf.ecore.EObject, NamedElement, Namespace, org.eclipse.emf.common.notify.Notifier, PackageableElement, ParameterableElement, RedefinableElement, TemplateableElement, Type

public interface InformationItem
extends Classifier

A representation of the model object ' Information Item '. An information item is an abstraction of all kinds of information that can be exchanged between objects. It is a kind of classifier intended for representing information in a very abstract way, one which cannot be instantiated.

The following features are supported:

          Retrieves the first Classifier with the specified ' Name ' from the ' Represented ' reference list
  Classifier getRepresented (java.lang.String name, boolean ignoreCase, org.eclipse.emf.ecore.EClass eClass)
          Retrieves the first Classifier with the specified ' Name ' from the ' Represented ' reference list
 org.eclipse.emf.common.util.EList< Classifier> getRepresenteds ()
          Returns the value of the ' Represented ' reference list.
 boolean validateHasNo (org.eclipse.emf.common.util.DiagnosticChain diagnostics, java.util.Map<java.lang.Object,java.lang.Object> context)
          An informationItem has no feature, no generalization, and no associations.
 boolean validateNotInstantiable (org.eclipse.emf.common.util.DiagnosticChain diagnostics, java.util.Map<java.lang.Object,java.lang.Object> context)
          It is not instantiable.
 boolean validateSourcesAndTargets (org.eclipse.emf.common.util.DiagnosticChain diagnostics, java.util.Map<java.lang.Object,java.lang.Object> context)
          The sources and targets of an information item (its related information flows) must designate subsets of the sources and targets of the representation information item, if any.The Classifiers that can realize an information item can only be of the following kind: Class, Interface, InformationItem, Signal, Component.

Method Detail

getRepresenteds

org.eclipse.emf.common.util.EList<
Classifier> getRepresenteds()
Returns the value of the ' Represented ' reference list. The list contents are of type Classifier. Determines the classifiers that will specify the structure and nature of the information. An information item represents all its represented classifiers.

Returns:
the value of the 'Represented' reference list.
See Also:
UMLPackage.getInformationItem_Represented()

getRepresented

Classifier getRepresented(java.lang.String name)
Retrieves the first Classifier with the specified ' Name ' from the ' Represented ' reference list.

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

getRepresented

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

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

validateSourcesAndTargets

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

validateHasNo

boolean validateHasNo(org.eclipse.emf.common.util.DiagnosticChain diagnostics,
                      java.util.Map<java.lang.Object,java.lang.Object> context)
An informationItem has no feature, no generalization, and no associations. self.generalization->isEmpty() and self.feature->isEmpty()

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

validateNotInstantiable

boolean validateNotInstantiable(org.eclipse.emf.common.util.DiagnosticChain diagnostics,
