UML14 — Merge "Class" and "Interface" into one class

  • Key: UML14-867
  • Legacy Issue Number: 1507
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    Summary: Specifying "Interface" and "Class" as seperate metamodel classes has practical ramifications for UML tools. During analysis/design, a developer may start out by specifying a class, but then decide that it should be an interface. The reverse is also possible. This switching, from Class to Interface, or vice versa, would be very easy if "Interface" is merged into "Class" and the two concepts are distiguished by a stereotype called "interface". This recommendation is also supported by the fact that indeed the notation distinguishes the two concepts by a stereotype called "interface".
