The top level packages in a model (below the project root nodes) can be created as Views.
Views are top-level packages with special package icons.
They are used simply to subdivide the model into partitions such as Component View or Dynamic View, and are a good way to structurally extend the model depending on specific requirements and modeling techniques.
These Views have the same concept as the Simple UML Views generated as Model Packages; however, unlike the Model Package views, basic Views:
|•||Do not have any automatically-generated components|
|•||Can be created only under a root node|
|•||Are not directly available for Requirements, Analysis or Testing, although you can develop these Views as Simple Views or within Use Case Views (see below)|
There are six main types of View, each with their own package icon:
|•||Use Case View - to contain, for example, Use Case diagrams and Analysis diagrams|
|•||Dynamic View - to contain, for example, Activity diagrams, Communication diagrams, Sequence diagrams and State Machine diagrams|
|•||Class View - to contain, for example, Class diagrams, Code Engineering and Data Models|
|•||Component View - to contain, for example, Component diagrams|
|•||Deployment View - to contain, for example, Deployment diagrams|
|•||Simple View - to customize your own type of view|
You can use the first five categories, or devise your own based on the Simple View.
You can create Views, rename them, move them into a different order or delete them, by right-clicking the mouse on the selected View and choosing the appropriate context menu option.
