UML24 — Issue on generalization

  • Key: UML24-21
  • Legacy Issue Number: 14862
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Change Vision ( Michael Chonoles)
  • Summary:

    While looking over Use Cases for other changes, I realize that I’m not sure about how inheritance (generalization) works. It appears that only constraints and features are inherited. Features include structural and behavioral features, and structural features include associations.

    This seems to exclude dependencies and other directed relationships and other potentially named elements in the namespace.

    I must have something wrong, but this means that

    · include and extends are not inherited;

    · realizations are not inherited;

    · nested qualifiers are not inherited;

    · general dependencies are not inherited
