Interface StereotypeConstraints

All Superinterfaces:
RefAssociation, RefBaseObject
All Known Implementing Classes:
StereotypeConstraints$Hib

public interface StereotypeConstraints
extends RefAssociation

StereotypeConstraints association proxy interface. The StereotypeConstraints association links Stereotypes with Constraints that further restrict the states that a stereotyped ModelElement may assume. A Constraint instance may not simultaneously participate in both the StereotypeContraints association and the ElementConstraint association.

Note: This type should not be subclassed, implemented or directly instantiated by clients. It is generated from a MOF metamodel and implemented by Enki or MDR.


Method Summary
 boolean add(CwmConstraint stereotypeConstraint, CwmStereotype constrainedStereotype)
          Creates a link between the pair of instance objects in the associations link set.
 boolean exists(CwmConstraint stereotypeConstraint, CwmStereotype constrainedStereotype)
          Queries whether a link currently exists between a given pair of instance objects in the associations link set.
 CwmStereotype getConstrainedStereotype(CwmConstraint stereotypeConstraint)
          Queries the instance object that is related to a particular instance object by a link in the current associations link set.
 Collection<CwmConstraint> getStereotypeConstraint(CwmStereotype constrainedStereotype)
          Queries the instance objects that are related to a particular instance object by a link in the current associations link set.
 boolean remove(CwmConstraint stereotypeConstraint, CwmStereotype constrainedStereotype)
          Removes a link between a pair of instance objects in the current associations link set.

Method Detail

exists

boolean exists(CwmConstraint stereotypeConstraint,
               CwmStereotype constrainedStereotype)
Queries whether a link currently exists between a given pair of instance objects in the associations link set.

Parameters:
stereotypeConstraint - Value of the first association end.
constrainedStereotype - Value of the second association end.
Returns:
Returns true if the queried link exists.

getStereotypeConstraint

Collection<CwmConstraint> getStereotypeConstraint(CwmStereotype constrainedStereotype)
Queries the instance objects that are related to a particular instance object by a link in the current associations link set.

Parameters:
constrainedStereotype - Required value of the second association end.
Returns:
Collection of related objects.

getConstrainedStereotype

CwmStereotype getConstrainedStereotype(CwmConstraint stereotypeConstraint)
Queries the instance object that is related to a particular instance object by a link in the current associations link set.

Parameters:
stereotypeConstraint - Required value of the first association end.
Returns:
Related object or null if none exists.

add

boolean add(CwmConstraint stereotypeConstraint,
            CwmStereotype constrainedStereotype)
Creates a link between the pair of instance objects in the associations link set.

Parameters:
stereotypeConstraint - Value of the first association end.
constrainedStereotype - Value of the second association end.

remove

boolean remove(CwmConstraint stereotypeConstraint,
               CwmStereotype constrainedStereotype)
Removes a link between a pair of instance objects in the current associations link set.

Parameters:
stereotypeConstraint - Value of the first association end.
constrainedStereotype - Value of the second association end.
