UML14 — Page 47: Dependency is a unidirectional, client-server

  • Key: UML14-818
  • Legacy Issue Number: 1337
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    Summary: Page 47 Dependency is clearly a unidirectional, client-server relationship.
    Usage, as a stereotype of Dependency, similar. But I don"t get the same
    feel for Trace and, to a lesser degree, Refinement. Indeed, trace seems
    to negate some of the properties of Dependency - a bad practice as
    Brachman pointed out many years ago. For example, Trace has no
    directionality yet it inherits unidirectionality from Dependency which it must
    therefore cancel/negate.
