UML: How do I do this…?
« on: May 21, 2019, 06:09:20 pm »
Several questions about UML: Do I include the main class in my UML diagram? If I do include it, and it instantiates objects, do I draw an empty arrow (such as ->) from my main class to the classes it instantiates? When do I use the diamond vs. the arrow?

I'm just curious about those 3 things... While an article would also be very helpful, could someone address those three questions?

Thank you so much.

What is you main class? Anyhow, if you think it is useful on a diagram then you add it. If not don't.

Also, you should probably learn about UML so you don't have to talk about arrows and diamonds anymore, but you can reason about navigability, aggregation etc...
