  StringExpression createSubExpression (java.lang.String name, Type type)

          Returns the value of the ' Owning Expression ' container reference.
  StringExpression getSubExpression (java.lang.String name, Type type)
          Retrieves the first StringExpression with the specified ' Name ', and ' Type ' from the ' Sub Expression ' containment reference list

 org.eclipse.emf.common.util.EList< StringExpression> getSubExpressions ()
          Returns the value of the ' Sub Expression ' containment reference list.
 void setOwningExpression ( StringExpression value)
          Sets the value of the ' Owning Expression' container reference
 boolean validateOperands (org.eclipse.emf.common.util.DiagnosticChain diagnostics, java.util.Map<java.lang.Object,java.lang.Object> context)
          All the operands of a StringExpression must be LiteralStrings operand->forAll (op | op.oclIsKindOf (LiteralString))

Method Detail

getSubExpressions

org.eclipse.emf.common.util.EList<
StringExpression> getSubExpressions()
Returns the value of the ' Sub Expression ' containment reference list. The list contents are of type StringExpression. It is bidirectional and its opposite is ' Owning Expression'.

This feature subsets the following features:

The StringExpressions that constitute this StringExpression.

Returns:
the value of the 'Sub Expression' containment reference list.
See Also:
UMLPackage.getStringExpression_SubExpression(), getOwningExpression()

createSubExpression

StringExpression createSubExpression(java.lang.String name,
                                     
Type type)
Creates a new StringExpression, with the specified ' Name ', and ' Type ', and appends it to the ' Sub Expression ' containment reference list.

Parameters:
name - The ' Name ' for the new StringExpression, or null.
type - The ' Type ' for the new StringExpression, or null.
Returns:
The new StringExpression.
See Also:
getSubExpressions()

getSubExpression

StringExpression getSubExpression(java.lang.String name,
                                  
Type type)
Retrieves the first StringExpression with the specified ' Name ', and ' Type ' from the ' Sub Expression ' containment reference list.

Parameters:
name - The ' Name ' of the StringExpression to retrieve, or null.
type - The ' Type ' of the StringExpression to retrieve, or null.
Returns:
The first StringExpression with the specified ' Name ', and ' Type ', or null.
See Also:
getSubExpressions()

getSubExpression

StringExpression getSubExpression(java.lang.String name,
                                  
Type type,
                                  boolean ignoreCase,
                                  boolean createOnDemand)
Retrieves the first StringExpression with the specified ' Name ', and ' Type ' from the ' Sub Expression ' containment reference list.

Parameters:
name - The ' Name ' of the StringExpression to retrieve, or null.
type - The ' Type ' of the StringExpression to retrieve, or null.
ignoreCase - Whether to ignore case in String comparisons.
createOnDemand - Whether to create a StringExpression on demand if not found.
Returns:
The first StringExpression with the specified ' Name ', and ' Type ', or null.
See Also:
getSubExpressions()

getOwningExpression

StringExpression getOwningExpression()
Returns the value of the ' Owning Expression ' container reference. It is bidirectional and its opposite is ' Sub Expression'.

This feature subsets the following features:

The string expression of which this expression is a substring.

Returns:
the value of the 'Owning Expression' container reference.
See Also:
setOwningExpression(StringExpression), UMLPackage.getStringExpression_OwningExpression(), getSubExpressions()

setOwningExpression

void setOwningExpression(
StringExpression value)
Sets the value of the ' Owning Expression' container reference.

Parameters:
value - the new value of the 'Owning Expression' container reference.
See Also:
getOwningExpression()

validateOperands

boolean validateOperands(org.eclipse.emf.common.util.DiagnosticChain diagnostics,
                         java.util.Map<java.lang.Object,java.lang.Object> context)
All the operands of a StringExpression must be LiteralStrings operand->forAll (op | op.oclIsKindOf (LiteralString))

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

validateSubexpressions

boolean validateSubexpressions(org.eclipse.emf.common.util.DiagnosticChain diagnostics,
                               java.util.Map<java.lang.Object,java.lang.Object> context)
If a StringExpression has sub-expressions, it cannot have operands and vice versa (this avoids the problem of having to define a collating sequence between operands and subexpressions). if subExpression->notEmpty() then operand->isEmpty() else operand->notEmpty()

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