Message
Occurrence of an Operation, processed by Instances.
Messages are used in object diagrams, collaboration diagrams and sequence diagrams. If the Message has no InvokedOperation, then its description is in its name. In Modelio, a Message belongs to the sending MessageEnd. The message sequencing information is handled in sequence diagrams by both its MessageEnds, with an internal feature that is not directly accessible. The Joni Java API will provide methods to access the ordering of MessagesEnd as for InteractionFragments.
