Use separate diagram file, or not? [message #235307] Mon, 06 July 2009 09:03 Go to next message

still is...

So I would like to hear your opinions: Are you using one file for both
semantic and notation model, or separate files, and for what reasons?

Hello tobias,

Both cases are valid (single file for domain and diagram or two separate).
Each solution has possible drawbacks for some particular use cases. If your
project is nearly finished and you do not see any problems with domain/diagram
info separation then I suggest you to stay with this configuration - it's
always good to keed independent parts (domain info has nothing to do with
diagram) separated.
