UML14 — Large diamond for binary associations legal? - UML2 Superstructure issue

  • Key: UML14-415
  • Legacy Issue Number: 6509
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Daimler AG ( Mario Jeckle)
  • Summary:

    Reviewing the current Superstructure spec I noticed that it allows the
    usage of the large diamond in the middle of an association also for
    binary associations which significantly changes to notation compared
    UML 1.x

    By doing so UML class diagrams become Entity-Relationship flavoured
    do not have the semantics of those notation (identity, multiplicities,
    etc.) and also the notation is still different (multiplicity,
    association name, etc.).

    Is it really intended to allow the usage of the large diamond also for
    binary associations?

    Personally, I'm quite reluctant accepting these change ...
