UML14 — General recommended use of UML

  • Key: UML14-861
  • Legacy Issue Number: 1392
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    Summary: 4. Whilst there is no statement explicitly, it is clear that the general
    recommended use of UML associations is as bidirectionality for the default.
    It has been shown by many that such an assumption is not in line with
    good OO modelling and indeed violates encapsulation: a key tenet of OT.
    The notation similarly supports such an interpretation and, furthermore,
    mandates the decision on directionality immediately since there is no
    way to sketch in a relationship whose direction is to be decided (TBD) later.
