Sending Messages in UML

By: Gonzalo Génova, Juan Llorens, Vicente Palacios


During the last decade there has been an intense controversy since James Rumbaugh introduced a strong concept of association derived from entity-relationship models. In this approach, associations should be regarded as first-class semantic constructs of similar weight to classes and generalizations, because classes and associations abstract jointly, and in a natural way, not only the high-level static structure of the system, but also the overall structure of interactions between objects.
