11.3.27 OutputPin




    Pin (from BasicActions ) on page 275


   An output pin is a pin that holds output values produced by an action.


   No additional attributes


   No additional associations


   No additional constraints


   An action cannot terminate itself if an output pin has fewer values than the lower multiplicity. An action may not put more values in an output pin in a single execution than the upper multiplicity of the pin.


   No specific notation. See extensions in Activities.

*Changes from previous UML

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