.before() Redirected from User Guides/myXML/5: OCL Rules/Available methods for OCL base types/.before()

    Table of contents

    Description of the method

     

    Description: .before() method returns true if the date given is before the date given as a parameter.
    Available for: ISO Date, ISO Date Time
    Parameters: -
    Return type: ISO Date, ISO Date Time

     

    Example

    Context: HeaderType1
    OCL: self.Timestamp.before(self.Dt)
    Description: The example rule compares the date of <TimeStamp> to the date of <Dt>. If the date of  <TimeStamp> is before the date of <Dt>, true will be returned.

     

    The XML snippet below would pass this check.

    <Header>
        <Dt>2018-05-30</Dt>
        <TimeStamp>2018-05-28T12:17:50</TimeStamp>
    </Header>

    The other snippet below however would not pass this check.

    <Header>
        <Dt>2018-05-28</Dt>
        <TimeStamp>2018-05-28T12:17:50</TimeStamp>
    </Header>
