Class Diagram
A class diagram shows a collection of declarative (static) model elements, such as classes, packages, and their contents and relationships.

Class diagrams show associations, aggregations and generalizations between business workers and business entities. The following kinds of class diagrams might be of interest:

  • Inheritance hierarchies.
  • Aggregates of business workers and business entities.
  • How business workers and entities are related by means of associations.
Class diagrams show generic structures in the business object model, but can also be part of the documentation of a business-use-case realization (see Guidelines: Business Use-Case Realization) by showing it participating business workers and business entities.
