UML14 — Page 35/6: Use of word type is confusing

  • Key: UML14-843
  • Legacy Issue Number: 1365
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    Summary: 2. The use of the word Type here is confusing. In previous versions it
    was used as approximately the same as Interface as in: "the Class
    realizes/implements the Type". Here it seems to be a synonym for
    Role as in OOram (or OPEN). Why not just call it Role, for that is
    what it seems to be – a type of dynamic classification.
