Message-to-Self

Rational Rhapsody

A message-to-self is interpreted as an event if the instance is a reactive class.
If the instance is a nonreactive class, a message-to-self is interpreted as a primitive operation.
A message-to-self is shown by an arrow that bends back to the sending instance.
The arrow can be on either side of the instance line.
If the message-to-self is a primitive operation, the arrow folds back immediately.
If the message-to-self is an event, the arrow might fold back sometime later.
