  1. OMG Issue

UML14 — UML 2 Super / Classes / Dependency should not be abstract

  • Key: UML14-485
  • Legacy Issue Number: 6945
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Simula Research Laboratory ( Bran Selic)
  • Summary:

    A quick survey of the superstructure spec reveals the following places where Dependency is defined (and I probably missed some):

    Fig 51, P.106, shown as NOT abstract - this is where the Dependency package is shown
    Table 4, P.130, defines a visual symbol for it
    Fig. 101, P.155, shown as abstract
    Fig. 126, P.183, shown as abstract
    Fig 130, P.188, shows a pure dependency in an example
    Table 9, P.199, defines a visual symbol for it

    Most of the text also refers to the section containing figure 51 for the definition of dependency. If I were reading the spec, I would tend to consider the section where it is defined as the authority and dismiss the others as errors made by those writing the other chapters.
