UML14 — Interfaces and support classes

  • Key: UML14-802
  • Legacy Issue Number: 1290
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    Summary: in UML I"m missing a specified way (e.g. a class stereotype) to
    support the paradigm of "interfaces and support classes". I think it
    would be a convienient way to specify the interfaces which are offered
    by a class like methods and properties:

    ------------------------------

    SomeContainer
    <<implementation Class>>

    ------------------------------

    interface IIndexAccess
    interface IEnumerationAccess
    interface ISomewhatOther

    ------------------------------

    property PropA
    property PropB

    ------------------------------

    The other thing annoying for me is the definition of aggregation. My
    understanding of aggregation ist that the aggregating object offers
    the interfaces of the aggregated objects as they where it"s own (for
    the outer view). The definition of UML seems to be only a "containing"
    relationship.
