This paper describes an action semantics for UML based on the Meta-Modelling Language (MML) - a precise meta-modelling language designed for developing families of UML languages. Actions are defined as computational procedures with side-effects. The action semantics are described in the MML style, with model, instance and semantic packages. Different actions are described as specializations of the basic action in their own package. The aim is to show that by using a Catalysis like package extension mechanism, with precise mappings to a simple semantic domain, a well-structured and extensible model for an action language can be obtained.
