UML14 — Existance of classes in classes

  • Key: UML14-897
  • Legacy Issue Number: 1939
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    Summary: The UML Semantics Guide 1.1 (top of p.37) says "...a class acts as a namespace for contained classes...". But the UML Notation Guide 1.1 (p. 23) only says "The name of a class has scope within the package in which it is declared...", i.e. it only speaks to classes that are directly contained in packages and is silent on the existence of classes within classes (Java"s "inner classes", or "nested classes" in C++) or how to represent them.
