UML24 — Poor example of Dependency notation

  • Key: UML24-39
  • Legacy Issue Number: 15046
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Adaptive ( Mr. Pete Rivett)
  • Summary:

    Figure 7.37 shows an example of Dependency with <<dependencyName>> in guillemets.

    The Notation text above it states:” The arrow may be labeled with an optional stereotype and an optional name.” However surely the name of the Dependency itself should not be in guillemets – only that of the stereotype.

    Note that (subclasses of) Dependency are notated using a keyword instead of a stereotype so this should also be allowed for in the text.

    Proposed resolution: the Figure should be revised to show the dependencyName not in guillemets and possibly with a stereotype name in guillemets.
