Interface ObjectNode

All Superinterfaces:
ActivityNode, Element, org.eclipse.emf.ecore.EModelElement, org.eclipse.emf.ecore.EObject, NamedElement, org.eclipse.emf.common.notify.Notifier, RedefinableElement, TypedElement
All Known Subinterfaces:
ActionInputPin, ActivityParameterNode, CentralBufferNode, DataStoreNode, ExpansionNode, InputPin, OutputPin, Pin, ValuePin

public interface ObjectNode
extends ActivityNode, TypedElement

A representation of the model object ' Object Node '. An object node is an abstract activity node that is part of defining object flow in an activity. Object nodes have support for token selection, limitation on the number of tokens, specifying the state required for tokens, and carrying control values.

The following features are supported:

Method Detail

getOrdering

ObjectNodeOrderingKind getOrdering()
Returns the value of the ' Ordering ' attribute. The default value is "FIFO". The literals are from the enumeration ObjectNodeOrderingKind. Tells whether and how the tokens in the object node are ordered for selection to traverse edges outgoing from the object node.

Returns:
the value of the 'Ordering' attribute.
See Also:
ObjectNodeOrderingKind, setOrdering(ObjectNodeOrderingKind), UMLPackage.getObjectNode_Ordering()

setOrdering

void setOrdering(
ObjectNodeOrderingKind value)
Sets the value of the ' Ordering' attribute.

Parameters:
value - the new value of the 'Ordering' attribute.
See Also:
ObjectNodeOrderingKind, getOrdering()

isControlType

boolean isControlType()
Returns the value of the ' Is Control Type ' attribute. The default value is "false". Tells whether the type of the object node is to be treated as control.

Returns:
the value of the 'Is Control Type' attribute.
See Also:
setIsControlType(boolean), UMLPackage.getObjectNode_IsControlType()

setIsControlType

void setIsControlType(boolean value)
Sets the value of the ' Is Control Type' attribute.

Parameters:
value - the new value of the 'Is Control Type' attribute.
See Also:
isControlType()

getUpperBound

ValueSpecification getUpperBound()
Returns the value of the ' Upper Bound ' containment reference.

This feature subsets the following features:

The maximum number of tokens allowed in the node. Objects cannot flow into the node if the upper bound is reached.

Returns:
the value of the 'Upper Bound' containment reference.
See Also:
setUpperBound(ValueSpecification), UMLPackage.getObjectNode_UpperBound()

setUpperBound

void setUpperBound(
ValueSpecification value)
Sets the value of the ' Upper Bound' containment reference.

Parameters:
value - the new value of the 'Upper Bound' containment reference.
See Also:
getUpperBound()

createUpperBound

ValueSpecification createUpperBound(java.lang.String name,
                                    
Type type,
                                    org.eclipse.emf.ecore.EClass eClass)
Creates a new ValueSpecification, with the specified ' Name ', and ' Type ', and sets the ' Upper Bound ' 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:
The new ValueSpecification.
See Also:
getUpperBound()

getInStates

org.eclipse.emf.common.util.EList<
State> getInStates()
Returns the value of the ' In State ' reference list. The list contents are of type State. The required states of the object available at this point in the activity.

Returns:
the value of the 'In State' reference list.
See Also:
UMLPackage.getObjectNode_InState()

getInState

State getInState(java.lang.String name)
Retrieves the first State with the specified ' Name ' from the ' In State ' reference list.

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

getInState

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

Parameters:
