  1. OMG Issue

UML14 — why is AssociationRole is a subtype of Association?

  • Key: UML14-1013
  • Legacy Issue Number: 3371
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    3. It is unclear to me, why AssociationRole is a subtype of Association, and, similarly, why AssociationEndRole is a subtype of AssociationEnd. The resulting recursive relationship suggests that AssociationRoles can serve as the base for further AssociationRoles, the meaning of which is unclear to me. (Some people suggest to have roles of roles, but I think this confuses concepts.)
