Method Detail

exists

public boolean exists(GeneralizableElement parent,
                      Generalization specialization)
Queries whether a link currently exists between a given pair of instance objects in the associations link set.

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

getParent

public GeneralizableElement getParent(Generalization specialization)
Queries the instance object that is related to a particular instance object by a link in the current associations link set.

Returns:
Related object or null if none exists.

getSpecialization

public Collection getSpecialization(GeneralizableElement parent)
Queries the instance objects that are related to a particular instance object by a link in the current associations link set.

Returns:
Collection of related objects.

add

specialization - Value of the second association end.

remove

public boolean remove(GeneralizableElement parent,
                      Generalization specialization)
Removes a link between a pair of instance objects in the current associations link set.

Parameters:
parent - Value of the first association end.
