UML14 — Page 79: Poor choice of arrowhead

  • Key: UML14-853
  • Legacy Issue Number: 1375
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    Summary: Page 79 The <<uses>> relationship is a poor choice of arrowhead, since the
    white arrowhead is a generalization-style. What is needed is something
    more reminiscent of either association, or, probably better, dependency. So
    an open arrowhead, possibly even with dotted line as in Dependency
    stereotyped with <<uses>> in static diagrams might be better.
