org.eclipse.uml2.uml
Interface LinkEndData

All Superinterfaces:
Element, org.eclipse.emf.ecore.EModelElement, org.eclipse.emf.ecore.EObject, org.eclipse.emf.common.notify.Notifier
All Known Subinterfaces:
LinkEndCreationData, LinkEndDestructionData

public interface LinkEndData
extends Element

A representation of the model object ' Link End Data '. A link end data is not an action. It is an element that identifies links. It identifies one end of a link to be read or written by the children of a link action. A link cannot be passed as a runtime value to or from an action. Instead, a link is identified by its end objects and qualifier values, if any. This requires more than one piece of data, namely, the statically-specified end in the user model, the object on the end, and the qualifier values for that end, if any. These pieces are brought together around a link end data. Each association end is identified separately with an instance of the LinkEndData class.

The following features are supported:

          The qualifiers include all and only the qualifiers of the association end.
 boolean validateSameType (org.eclipse.emf.common.util.DiagnosticChain diagnostics, java.util.Map<java.lang.Object,java.lang.Object> context)
          The type of the end object input pin is the same as the type of the association end.

Method Detail

getValue

InputPin getValue()
Returns the value of the ' Value ' reference. Input pin that provides the specified object for the given end. This pin is omitted if the link-end data specifies an 'open' end for reading.

Returns:
the value of the 'Value' reference.
See Also:
setValue(InputPin), UMLPackage.getLinkEndData_Value()

setValue

void setValue(
InputPin value)
Sets the value of the ' Value' reference.

Parameters:
value - the new value of the 'Value' reference.
See Also:
getValue()

getEnd

Property getEnd()
Returns the value of the ' End ' reference. Association end for which this link-end data specifies values.

Returns:
the value of the 'End' reference.
See Also:
setEnd(Property), UMLPackage.getLinkEndData_End()

setEnd

void setEnd(
Property value)
Sets the value of the ' End' reference.

Parameters:
value - the new value of the 'End' reference.
See Also:
getEnd()

getQualifiers

org.eclipse.emf.common.util.EList<
QualifierValue> getQualifiers()
Returns the value of the ' Qualifier ' containment reference list. The list contents are of type QualifierValue. List of qualifier values

Returns:
the value of the 'Qualifier' containment reference list.
See Also:
UMLPackage.getLinkEndData_Qualifier()

createQualifier

QualifierValue createQualifier()
Creates a new QualifierValue and appends it to the ' Qualifier ' containment reference list.

Returns:
The new QualifierValue.
See Also:
getQualifiers()

validatePropertyIsAssociationEnd

boolean validatePropertyIsAssociationEnd(org.eclipse.emf.common.util.DiagnosticChain diagnostics,
                                         java.util.Map<java.lang.Object,java.lang.Object> context)
The property must be an association end. self.end.association->size() = 1

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

validateSameType

boolean validateSameType(org.eclipse.emf.common.util.DiagnosticChain diagnostics,
                         java.util.Map<java.lang.Object,java.lang.Object> context)
The type of the end object input pin is the same as the type of the association end. self.value.type = self.end.type

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

validateMultiplicity

boolean validateMultiplicity(org.eclipse.emf.common.util.DiagnosticChain diagnostics,
                             java.util.Map<java.lang.Object,java.lang.Object> context)
The multiplicity of the end object input pin must be 1..1. self.value.multiplicity.is(1,1)

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

boolean validateQualifiers(org.eclipse.emf.common.util.DiagnosticChain diagnostics,
                           java.util.Map<java.lang.Object,java.lang.Object> context)
The qualifiers include all and only the qualifiers of the association end. self.qualifier->collect(qualifier) = self.end.qualifier

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

validateEndObjectInputPin

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