The ANSI C++ profile is the base for all other C++ profiles. Other specialized C++ profiles must inherit from this profile by creating a generalization in modeling tool.

Data Types

Fundamental types defined by ANSI are mapped to a UML data type. You can state each fundamental type with a modifier (signed, unsigned, short, long) in a different order, but it is the same type. For example, you can use either short int or int short. Only versions defined as type by ANSI simple-type-specifiers are created as datatypes in the profile. If an UML synonym dataType is found during the reverse process, a class is created with this name.

Each fundamental type has 3 corresponding cv-qualified versions: const, volatile, and Const Volatile qualified type.

UML data types defined in the UML profile contain char, int, double, float, or void. We use these datatypes for mapping C++ type.

These datatypes are specific. In UML 2, only Integer, Boolean, String, and UnlimitedNatural are defined; they are not defined as datatypes, but as primitives. Our modeling tool does not define UnlimitedNatural in any profile and Integer and boolean (b is lowercase) are datatypes.
