UML14 — Page 35/6: Why are attributes and association not inherited?

  • Key: UML14-844
  • Legacy Issue Number: 1366

  • Summary:

    Summary: 3. Why are attributes and associations not inherited? (The diagram is
    confusing since elements:Collection is not inherited yet appears to be).
    This odd sort of inheritance is stressed again in connection with
    Interfaces on page 36 and again on page 37 (last line).
    If Types can have attributes (presumably logical attributes) then surely
    the ImplementationClass needs to know about these to map into physical
    attributes or methods in its implementation.
