See Also:
getInteraction()

getSelector

ValueSpecification getSelector()
Returns the value of the ' Selector ' containment reference.

This feature subsets the following features:

If the referenced ConnectableElement is multivalued, then this specifies the specific individual part within that set.

Returns:
the value of the 'Selector' containment reference.
See Also:
setSelector(ValueSpecification), UMLPackage.getLifeline_Selector()

setSelector

void setSelector(

Type type,
                                  org.eclipse.emf.ecore.EClass eClass)
Creates a new ValueSpecification, with the specified ' Name ', and ' Type ', and sets the ' Selector ' containment reference.

Parameters:
name - The ' Name ' for the new ValueSpecification, or null.
type - The ' Type ' for the new ValueSpecification, or null.
eClass - The Ecore class of the ValueSpecification to create.
Returns:

If two (or more) InteractionUses within one Interaction, refer to Interactions with 'common Lifelines,' those Lifelines must also appear in the Interaction with the InteractionUses. By common Lifelines we mean Lifelines with the same selector and represents associations. true

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

validateSelectorSpecified

boolean validateSelectorSpecified(org.eclipse.emf.common.util.DiagnosticChain diagnostics,
                                  java.util.Map<java.lang.Object,java.lang.Object> context)
The selector for a Lifeline must only be specified if the referenced Part is multivalued. (self.selector->isEmpty() implies not self.represents.isMultivalued()) or (not self.selector->isEmpty() implies self.represents.isMultivalued())

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