4.1.8 Importation

Figure 4.12: An example of the graphical representation of importation
Image importationsample

Importation is graphically shown as UML comments. The name of the file that contains the imported model is given in the comment.4.2 As an example, Figure 4.12 includes state B, where submodel submodel.des (des, short for ``model description'', is the postfix used by SVM) is imported.

The current version of the DCharts meta-model in AToM$^3$ does not support the specification of importation.


... comment.4.2
It is assumed that each model is defined in a separate file, whether the graphical syntax or the textual syntax is used.
