InformationItem
Abstraction of all kinds of information that can be exchanged between objects.
An information item is an abstraction of all kinds of information that can be exchanged between objects. It is a kind of classifier intended for representing information in a very abstract way, one which cannot be instantiated. One purpose of information items is to be able to define preliminary models, before having made detailed modeling decisions on types or structures. Another purpose of information items and information flows is to abstract complex models by a less precise but more general representation of the information exchanged between entities of a system. The Classifiers that can realize an information item can only be of the following kind: Class, Interface, InformationItem, Signal, Component.
