UML14 — Binary associations decorated with large diamonds legal?

  • Key: UML14-413
  • Legacy Issue Number: 6507
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Daimler AG ( Mario Jeckle)
  • Summary:

    The current Superstructure document states that "Any association may
    drawn as a diamond ...". This changes the behavior present in UML 1.x
    significantly which only allowed the diamond for n-ary (n>2)

    As a consequence of this change a UML diagram may look more like an
    Entity-Relationship model with some changes (placement of the
    association's name, multiplicity notation, and all the semantics)
    than a
    upward compatible UML digram.

    Is this intended?

    I tend to retain UML's former behavor to allow the large diamond only
    for n-ary associations.

    Any ideas or am I just misreading the spec?
