UMLR — Use of decomposition indicator

  • Key: UMLR-649
  • Legacy Issue Number: 19879
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    Fig. 14.8 uses a decomposition indicator (a lying 8) which is not defined in the document. Actually it is already in UML 1.5 (fig. 3-74 on p. 3-141) in the HiddenComposite. There needs to be some formal description of this icon.

    Actually in Enterprise Architect this icon is used as commonplace for decomposition of arbitrary elements. This is a very convenient feature and it should be part of the general UML specification.
