hallo

i have a problem, with qualified Association or more exactly with mapping a qualified Association. According to the UML Specification, the qualifier is put as a children of a property. so let us assume a example like in the file bookSite.
is the mapping like in bookSiteUml correct.
especially is the duplication of the sitenumber correct (once in Site and once in sites)? is the cardinality of the property sites correct or must it be 1..1?
and what exactly means the cardinality of a qualifier?
can there be a qualifier also for attributes, which are not part of an association and can there be a qualifier in n-ary association, and when yes what does it mean?
the uml-specification is not very exact due this topic.

thanks for help
regards

You have to consider to consider both Java and UML. When creating a one to one qualified association then the java code should include attributes and methods such as displayed in the picture and the UML model should also include association in the Site class tree as well as qualifier in the Book class.

hi vlad
thanks for your reply
i am not sure, i have understand all now.
especially im not sure about the cardinalities. in your mappig one book has only one site, but i want a book with many sites. i set the cardinality from book to site to one because i found these here http://ptgmedia.pearsoncmg.com/images/ch16_9780131489066/elementLinks/16fig15.jpg in this context http://www.informit.com/articles/article.aspx?p=1398623&seqNum=16

I created java code and the UML model based on your first picture : http://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/fa/3077/
I can not really judge Craig Larman book because he is the master while I am more likely to be the "polish plumber" looking at code and how it should be saved in the code and the metamodel.
We therefore can help you to answer questions such as what... but not why... !!
Do you want to get the java code and the model related to the diagram ?
