11.3.19 InputPin




    Pin (from BasicActions ) on page 275


   An input pin is a pin that holds input values to be consumed by an action.


   No additional attributes


   No additional associations


   No additional constraints


   An action cannot start execution if an input pin has fewer values than the lower multiplicity. The upper multiplicity determines how many values are consumed by a single execution of the action.


   No specific notation. See extensions in Activities.

   InputPin is the same concept as in UML 1.5, but modeled independently of the behaviors that use it.
