Time Exceptions in Sequence Diagrams

  • Conference paper

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNPSE,volume 4364)

Abstract

UML sequence diagrams partially describe a system. We show how the description may be augmented with exceptions triggered by the violation of timing constraints and compare our approach to those of the UML 2.1 simple time model, the UML Testing Profile and the UML profile for Schedulability, Performance and Time. We give a formal definition of time exceptions in sequence diagrams and show that the concepts are compositional. An ATM example is used to explain and motivate the concepts.
