Interactions Def.- An interaction describes a series of messages that a selected set of participants exchange within a situation limited in time.

Def.- An interaction describes a series of messages that a selected set of participants exchange within a situation limited in time.

Interactions UML 2.0 defines four diagrams to represent interactions: Sequence diagrams : emphasize the sequence in which messages are exchanged. (*) Communication diagrams : emphasize the relationship between the participants . Timing diagrams : emphasize the state changes of the participants relative to the time and the messages exchanged. Interaction overview diagrams : present the order of interactions in an activity-like notation. (*) The most important to the Fundamental certification level

UML 2.0 defines four diagrams to represent interactions:

Sequence diagrams : emphasize the sequence in which messages are exchanged. (*)

Communication diagrams : emphasize the relationship between the participants .

Timing diagrams : emphasize the state changes of the participants relative to the time and the messages exchanged.

Interaction overview diagrams : present the order of interactions in an activity-like notation.

(*) The most important to the Fundamental certification level

Notation & Semantics The most important aspect in sequence diagrams is the time of messages . Each participant is represented by a rectangle and a vertical dashed line called lifeline . Messages are represented by arrows between lifelines. The time runs from top to bottom, showing the time of message flows .

The lifeline metamodel

Connectable elements The name in the header of the lifeline is not underlined because lifelines represent connectable elements . They describe instances located in the classifier to which the interaction belongs. So it’s not bad idea if you think of the lifelines as objects of the specified types (as in UML 1.x).

They describe instances located in the classifier to which the interaction belongs. So it’s not bad idea if you think of the lifelines as objects of the specified types (as in UML 1.x).

Multiobjects The header of a lifeline shows (optionally) the element name , together with the pertaining classifier (name:type). A lifeline always represent exactly one element (so the Multiobjects of 1.x are not permited ). Of course, a lifeline can represent an element from a multivalued property . In order to select one specific element , you have to state a selector . The header of lifeline can also show the keyword self , which represents an instance of the classifier to which the interaction belongs

Execution occurrence When messages are exchanged between lifelines, then a behavior in the participating elements has to be executed . This behavior is represented by oblong rectangles on the lifelines and represent the execution occurrence . The beginning and the end of an execution occurrence are defined by event occurrences . The sending and receiving of messages determine the beginning and the end of an execution occurrence .

The metamodel for event occurrences

Notation forms for various message types S T asynchronous call(syncronous) reply lost message found message U new

Message sintax [attribute=] name [(arguments)][:return value]|’*’ Where: attribute : can a be a local variable or an instance fo a lifeline. Is used only for synchronous messages with return values. name : the name of the called message or the name of the signal sent. Signal sending is always asynchronous. arguments : list of parameters, separated by commas. Sintax: [parameter=]value (for in parameters) Attribute=output parameter[:output value] (for out , inout or return ) ‘ -’ (used when the value is unknown and when it doesn’t play a role for the interaction) Instead of the message you can specify an asterisk (*). It’s a kind of joker for any message .

[attribute=] name [(arguments)][:return value]|’*’

Where:

attribute : can a be a local variable or an instance fo a lifeline. Is used only for synchronous messages with return values.

name : the name of the called message or the name of the signal sent. Signal sending is always asynchronous.

arguments : list of parameters, separated by commas. Sintax:

[parameter=]value (for in parameters)

Attribute=output parameter[:output value] (for out , inout or return )

‘ -’

(used when the value is unknown and when it doesn’t play a role for the interaction)

Instead of the message you can specify an asterisk (*). It’s a kind of joker for any message .

Message examples message(4,-,2,”HelloWorld!”) X=calculate(17,bpos):42 message(arg=2003)

message(4,-,2,”HelloWorld!”)

X=calculate(17,bpos):42

message(arg=2003)

Destroying objects The destruction of an object is a special event ocurrence (see the metamodel).

The destruction of an object is a special event ocurrence (see the metamodel).

The metamodel for messages

Event ocurrence: sending and receiving messages Event ocurrences that arise immediately upon sending and receiving messages are more important than a stop for the certification . Sending is an event , as is Receiving . These events are used to define the semantics of an interaction that can be described by two sets .

Event ocurrences that arise immediately upon sending and receiving messages are more important than a stop for the certification .

Sending is an event , as is Receiving .

These events are used to define the semantics of an interaction that can be described by two sets .

Event ocurrence: sending and receiving messages One set contains the valid sequences of send and receive events. The other set contains invalid sequences . All remaining sequences are irrelevant for the interaction.

One set contains the valid sequences of send and receive events.

The other set contains invalid sequences .

All remaining sequences are irrelevant for the interaction.

Example of sequences-valid sequences Interaction Example S T p r p! p* q! r* r! q Secuencias válidas de interacción: <p!,p*,q!,r!, r*, q*> <p!, r!, p*, q!, r*, q*>

Rules to determine valid sequences Before a receive event , there must always be the pertaining send event first . The sequence along one lifeline is relevant . In contrast, the position of one event relative to an event on another lifeline is insignifcant . Ex.- Thought event r! comes after q! , r! can nevertheless happen first.

Before a receive event , there must always be the pertaining send event first .

The sequence along one lifeline is relevant . In contrast, the position of one event relative to an event on another lifeline is insignifcant .

Ex.- Thought event r! comes after q! , r! can nevertheless happen first.

General ordering Is possible to use the GeneralOrdering relationship to influence the sequence of events . GeneralOrdering is a relationship between two events , bringing these events into a time sequence. The relationship is drawn as a dotted line between a centered filled triangle, showing the direction between the two events involved. The triangle points to the later of the two events.

Adding a GeneralOrdering relationship to the example Interaction Example S T p r p! p* q! r* r! q Provoca que la secuencia ahora sea inválida, porque el evento r! tiene que ocurrir antes que p* <p!,p*,q!,r!, r*, q*>

StateInvariant The exchange of messages can causes the states of instances represented by lifelines to change . This can be denoted by state invariants .

The metamodel for use cases and actors

Some terms used in use cases System : (is not a direct model element) refers to the context of a use case. It describes a classifier in which the actions specified by the use case are executed. Can be a class or a component that represents the entire application. Synonymous : use case context , subject , modeling focus and context .

Synonymous : use case context , subject , modeling focus and context .

Some terms used in use cases Stakeholder : (is not a model element) it is a general term used to describe a person who has an interest in the system and who is especially interested in the results.

Notation for actors <<actor>> Actor External System The block (in the right) is not a UML symbol, is a user-specific symbol.

Associations A simple association is used to connect an actor and use cases . The association expresses a communication path between the actor and the use case . Directed associations are permitted. It is common for the navigation direction to point from the active to the passive part (from who initiated the communication).

Use case relationships Def.- An include relationship is used to integrate a use case into another use case, thus becoming a logical part of that use case. An extend relationship is used to express that a use case will be extended by another use case in certain circunmstances, and at certain point, which is the extension point . Use cases are special classifiers, they can be generalized and can be abstract .

The metamodel for use cases and actors (again...)

Include relationship Parts of use cases that occur identically in several use cases can be swapped into a separate use case , and then include relationship can be used to integrate the desired part in another use case. It is not necessary that an actor be connected to an included use case.

Extend relationship A extension points P B <<extend>> Condition:{boolean expression} extension point: p Use case A is extended by use case B at the extension point P under certain condition. If no condition is specified, then the extension will allways occur. It is not necessary that an actor be connected to the extended use case
