UML14 — UML 2 Super / Realize keyword-stereotype

  • Key: UML14-484
  • Legacy Issue Number: 6930
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Malina Software Corp. ( Bran Selic)
  • Summary:

    Table 28 in the appendix identifying standard stereotypes identifies that the "realizes" stereotype of Abstraction has been retired. However, on page 110 it is stated that the notation for a Realization dependency is a dependency with the "realize" keyword attached to this. Although this could be explained by saying that the keyword has not been retired whereas the stereotype has, this is very confusing and appears contradictory. I suggest we eliminate the table entry in Table to 28 that specifies that the "realize" stereotype has been retired.

    The bigger problem, perhaps is that the difference between keywords and stereotypes is not properly explained anywhere (at least not where I could find it). Perhaps the Notation appendix should discuss this.
