UML14 — Implicit transitive import between packages

  • Key: UML14-879
  • Legacy Issue Number: 1664
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    Summary: Implicit transitive import between packages is destructive for encapsulation management. "package Users import package TapeRecorder that import package integratedCircuit implies that package Users sees every public components of integratedCircuit". I suggest that imports becomes not transitive, so that import dependencies must be explicitely declared, or deduced from package aggregation.
