Package interface

A package is used to group elements, and provides a namespace for the grouped elements. A package can have one or more profile applications to indicate which profiles have been applied. Because a profile is a package, it is possible to apply a profile not only to packages, but also to profiles.

Attributes

NameTypeDescription
appliedProfilesProfile [0..*] 
appliedStereotypesStereotype [0..*]Indicates which stereotypes from the selected profile (or profiles) are applied to the element. The selected profiles are the profiles that are applied to the containing package. Inherited from Element.
idstring Gets the unique ID of the element. Inherited from Element.
isNamespaceRootboolean Denotes where the namespace structure for your class model starts; all nested packages below a namespace root will form the namespace hierarchy for contained types. 
namestring The name of the NamedElement. Inherited from NamedElement.
ownedCommentsComment [0..*]The Comments owned by this Element. Inherited from Element.
ownerElement [0..1]Gets the element that owns this element. Inherited from Element.
packagePackage Gets the package that owns the packageable element. This property is derived. Inherited from PackageableElement.
packagedElementsPackageableElement [0..*]Specifies the packageable elements that are owned by this Package. 
taggedValuesTaggedValueSpecification [0..*]Contains 0 or more tagged values for the element. Inherited from Element.
visibilityVisibilityKind [0..1]Determines whether and how the NamedElement is visible outside its owning Namespace. Inherited from NamedElement.
