Title: 'Feature'
Post by: rabra on June 27, 2006, 01:23:53 am
Hallo,

I just found out that I can change many (all?) Classifiers into a 'Feature'. But I could not find it in the toolbox. Does that have a reason or did I simply not find it? And is there a way to insert a 'Feature' directly if not shown in the toolbox?

If you use "All" Toolbox, you can find one named Requirements and there you can find "Feature".
Is that what are you asking for?

Yes, that was it - and I am sorry I was a little blind. I have found it. Thanks.

Features are structured comments, similar to Requirement/Issue/Change elements. They were added mainly to assist people using the Feature-Driven Development (FDD) methodology. Further reading, if you're interested:

I use the Feature element for Business Rules. That way I get a somewhat different icon to distinguish them from requirements.
