How to display inherited operations to specialize their behavior? [message #913036] Fri, 14 September 2012 16:39 Go to next message

I need to specialize the behavior of two classes derived from an abstract. In the abstract class I have an operation called "calcularPrecio", which is responsible for calculating the price of an item based on the type of customer it acquires. So, it's important to visualize this method in the specialized classes.

One way is creating one operation for each class, because it can't allow to copy-paste. This is quite tedious because if the operation has parameters, I have to create one operation three times, and then three times each parameter (one for each operation).

So, my question is: how to display inherited operations in specialized classes in a non-complicated way?

I used to use BOUML and when I did right click on the specialized class you can select methods and then say "inherit" and all them appears on the class.

Hello Gabriela,

There's currently a lack of support for redefining/overridding (and copying) operations in Papyrus, which will need to be fixed. Until then, I can suggest a workaround:

- Create an operation in the Super class
- Add the parameters
- Use the ModelExplorer to make a copy-paste of the operation to your subclasses
- Drop the new operations to your diagram to make them visible

That's still not simple, but at least is it "less complicated" than re-creating the operations and parameters.

Papyrus also allows you to display an inherited operation via the "Filters" / "Show/hide contents" menu. However, it is only useful for displaying the operations. If you want to override them, you will need to make an actual copy.
