Legacy Issue Number: 19680

The use of UML described in the Annex does not represent any known UML tool nor the UML specification. The examples are UML-like diagrams presumably created with a drawing tool.
- In Figure C.1 the right hand class is shown with 2 names and an italicized label “also:” this is not supported.
- Section C.3 and Figure C.2: in UML, Instance diagrams only the class and not the instance name is ever underlined
- Figure 6.3 is not a valid UML diagram if the lower shapes are InstanceSpecifications: they should have a colon after the names which should not be underlined. The use of Dependencies is not valid for class membership.
- Figure 6.4 is not valid an association may have only one name optionally accompanied by one direction indicator.
- Figure C.7, C.12: In general UML does not include the notion of underline/font within a name: it’s modeled only as a text string.
- Figure C.9 is not valid one cannot have an association with only one end.
- C.7.1, Figure 14: these 2 renderings are semantically identical in UML and serialized the same in XMI. UML has the ability to render the distinction using a GeneralizationSet with isDisjoint so why not use that?
- C.15: powertypes should not have a name before the colon in UML, though the property of type “branch type” may
- C.9, Figure C.17: the dashed lien to association diamond is not valid in UML
