UML14 — Page 71: Distinction between Dependency and Association

  • Key: UML14-851
  • Legacy Issue Number: 1373
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    Summary: Page 71 I don"t find a clear distinction between Dependency (especially
    its <<uses>> stereotype) and Association. Since all OO is to do with
    Client-server relationships, these must all be Dependencies thus eliminating
    the need for Association!!?? My answer is that they are equivalent but with a
    different focus, an association describing the static architecture and a uses
    the dynamic (message-passing) topology – see Henderson-Sellers, Feb 1998, JOOP
