UML14 — Changes to figure 15 and description of ClassifierRole on page 82

  • Key: UML14-877
  • Legacy Issue Number: 1651
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    Summary: Figure 15 on page 81 shows that a ClassifierRole has a single base Classifier.
    However, an Instance may have multiple Classifiers (see Figure 14 on p. 67).
    Indeed, the Notation Guide gives a notation for showing an Object having
    multiple Classes (on p. 46) and maps this notation to an Object within an
    object or class diagram, but to a ClassifierRole on a collaboration diagram.
    To support this notation, and to be consistant with the ability of Instances
    to have multiple Classifiers, a ClassifierRole should be able to have
    multiple base Classifiers.

    This requires a change to the multiplicity of the appropriate association
    in Figure 15 as well as updates to the ClassifierRole description on p. 82
    and the well-formedness rules for ClassifierRile on p. 84. (Actually, I think
    only the words in the WF rules need to change – the current OCL rules will
    accomodate the change in multiplicity of "base".)
