Receptions in SysML, Receive Signal in UML by a class
« on: September 03, 2016, 06:47:01 pm »
Hi,

has anyone a good idea how to model receptions in SysML or receive Signals in UML by a Class.

The help recommends: Using Stereotype <<Signal>> and name the operation according to the Signal name. http://www.sparxsystems.com/enterprise_architect_user_guide/8.0/modeling_languages/signal_element.html

I don't like the idea of same Name.

Has anyone a good idea?

Thanks in advance,

Helmut

The Signal class describes the content of a signal, if it's complex. In an AD I'd simply use the Receive to show the "event that happens" and link the Signal with a trace. In a SD you'r rather send an asynchronous message which would have the Signal as parameter.

There's nothing wrong with using the name name in this context.

UML itself says that a reception should always have the same name as the signal it represents.

Hi,

thanks a lot for your insides.

It's insights; as in seeing.  If someone gave you their insides; it would be their internal organs.   :)

Unless, of course, Helmut was tersely referring to 'inside information'.
I bravely managed to avoid any puns about 'having the guts' and 'stomaching the information'... or maybe I didn't!

Not the first time this guy points out that he's better in his mother tongue than a non-native speaker. Very brave.

I think in this case Glassboy was trying to be helpful and pointing out a (funny) misspelling.

Well kind is what I was aiming for.  Helmut seems to be a decent guy, and I'd had to think he ended up in a situation where someone laughed at him because none of us had the courtesy to point out his phonetic spelling is actually a different word.

And may I yet again point out,  I come from a country which has three official languages, and larger populations of Pacific Islanders than their original nations.  Plus large populations of asians.  You have no idea what my mother tongue is or what languages I can converse in, or how many languages I hear daily.

OK, OK - let's even the score. Glassboy made a mistake too. He was going to write 'hate' but he wrote 'had' instead. Corrected, OK?

Now, Helmut, did the combined might of the forum help you solve your original problem?

Hi,

thanks for helping me. I've updated my English - I hope!

Regarding receptions:
I will use an operation with the stereotype <<signal>. Then I get a compartment with signal instead of receptions.

With the issue about same naming of signal and operation I have to live or use the signal as type of a parameter.

Kind regards,

Helmut
