UML23 — Color errors on figures in UML 2.2

  • Key: UML23-66
  • Legacy Issue Number: 13931
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Object Management Group ( Jon Siegel)
  • Summary:

    Here are some (hopefully editorial) errors in the figures in the recent UML 2.2 release, document 09-02-02. A conscientious OCUP candidate brought the first of these to my attention.

    Figure 6.2: What is the significance of the red color of the symbols and arrows? If none, they should be black.

    Figure 14.1: The <<merge>> arrows are black, as is most of the rest of the figure, but the <<import>> arrows are red. This confuses at least one conscientious OCUP candidate who wrote in asking the significance of the color in the figures. i.e. Are <,import>> arrows supposed to be Red?

    Now I'm going back in the spec and checking all of the Abstract Syntax sections for color. Here we go...

    Part I, Figure 1, on page 21, also has red <<import>> arrows.

    Figure 8.1: Here, one of the <<merge>> arrows is red.

    Figure 9.1: The StructuredActivities box outline is maroon.

    Figure 10.1: Red <<import>> arrow

    Figure 11.1: Red <<import>> arrows

    Figure 12.1: Two boxes have red outlines and yellow fill. (Ouch!) Lots of red arrows.

    Figure 15.2: Red <<import>> arrows

    Figure 17.1: Red <<import>> arrows

    Figure 18.1: Red <<import>> arrows

    That's all I found. Hopefully it won't take a bunch of votes to turn all of these lines black
