Realization vs Inheritence
« on: February 26, 2002, 07:02:36 am »
I am new to EA and UML and am somewhat confused by the differences between realization and inheritence when desinging class models using interfaces.  In the EA example (LM01-1: Customer Domain) it shows the classes CustomerAccount and AccountItem implementing the same interface.  However they are using the connector for inheritence, I thought that they would be using realization.  Also only one of the classes actualy contains the operation from the interface.  Could anyone help clarify this for me?

Thanks,
TimC
