I have just checked the BridgePoint Activities support in BP550 and its current metamodel version.
CallBehaviorAction = call a sub-activity – not possible
BridgePoint is now also the Papyrus-xtuml project, Papyrus is based on Eclipse UML2, Alf activities can be executed in Moka.
Activity Diagrams are utilized by a proprietary Ericsson DSL for defining directed acyclic graphs (DAG) to support Carl Hewitt’s actor model for multicore SW development. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7erJ1DV_Tlo
The whole idea with this proprietary E/// UML2-based Baseband DSL is to simplify software development for the Ericsson Multi Core Architecture (EMCA). Q: When will these Papyrus capabilities be supported also in BridgePoint/Papyrus-xtuml ???

Thanks for the post.
Activity Diagrams have not been discussed much among the users that I regularly work with. However, there may be development that I have no visibility to.
Since most of the long-time BridgePoint development shops are not using the Activity Diagrams in Papyrus-xtUML (BridgePoint), there is discussion of deprecating the BP version in favor of native Papyrus Activity Diagrams as part of the BP merge with the Papyrus Platform.
What do you think?
