BasicInteractions , Fragments



    NamedElement (from Kernel , Dependencies ) on page 99.


   InteractionFragment is an abstract notion of the most general interaction unit. An interaction fragment is a piece of an interaction. Each interaction fragment is conceptually like an interaction by itself.

   InteractionFragment is an abstract class and a specialization of NamedElement .



    The semantics of an InteractionFragment is a pair of set of traces. See Interaction (from BasicInteraction, Fragments ) for explanation of how to calculate the traces.


   There is no general notation for an InteractionFragment . The specific subclasses of InteractionFragment will define their own notation.
