I think there is at least another bit: architecture.

Aadaam, a Reception is not a behavior but a BehavioralFeature. A behavioral feature specifies that an instance of a classifier will respond to a designated request by invoking a behavior. So it indirectly relates to a behavior. There are no "action diagrams" I guess you mean "activity diagrams". An Activity (which like interactions and state machines may be used to model a behavior) consists of actions and yes AEAs are actions. Sorry if i insist but I still can't see where is said receptions and AEAs can't coexist and where is said that AEAs are implementation of receptions.

comment UML Receptions and AcceptEventActions
could you please report the sections and sentences of the UML superstructure (omg.org/spec/UML) where is stated that "these two notations can never co-exist" and that "a behavioral diagram containing an AEA is an implementation of a class reception". I am sorry but I really need the OMG's definition not a personal opinion

Aadamm a class may have many receptions each related to a type of signal. It may then have a number of behaviors containing AEAs related to ReceiveSignalEvent which are the runtime occurrences of signals. My Question is... do these ReceiveSignalEvents have to relate to signal types for which the class has receptions?

comment UML Receptions and AcceptEventActions
Aadaam, I have never said AEA should wait for more than one signal... I am just asking whethere there could be behaviors with AEAs waiting on signals for which the class has no receptions and viceversa. I do not know SDL I am interested in the UML meta-model

Aadaam thank you, your answer is quite descriptive and say correct things. I should have used the class (not classifier) term. However the rest of the question is correct as a class may own receptions and may have behaviors described by activities that may have accept event actions (AEA). I haven't said AEA should have incoming flow. However there could be to express an flow stops and waiting for the reception of a signal to continue. In my question I was just wondering whether there could be behaviors with AEA waiting on signals for which the class has no receptions and viceversa.

Aadaam I am defining a set of M2M and M2T Transformations (by means of QVT and MOFM2T). However independently of what I am trying to do I am curious to know what is the correct syntax for such models

comment UML Actions with object and control flows
Thanks for your kind answer. However it is still actually not clear to me whether an action with multiple input pins and control flows should have tokens on at least one control and all the object flows in order to be executed or not. The latest UML Superstructure specification is omg.org/spec/UML
