Newbie question: what does stim mean?

Postby Guest » Tue May 03, 2005 10:16 am

When you make Sequence diagrams and create call stimulus
between objects you get two fields over the arrow (link between objects), namely stim and action, from what i have seen the action is a method call, but what does stim mean?

Hello,
stim represents the stimulus.
In the UML 1.4 Specification you will find the following explanation for stimulus.
"A Stimulus is a communication between two Instances that conveys information with the expectation that action will ensue. A
Stimulus will cause an Operation to be invoked, raise a Signal, or cause an Instance to be created or destroyed."
The diagrams in Poseidon are oriented at the Specification and represent most of the specified elements.
Kind regards,
