Modeling the Dynamic/Behavioral Aspects of the System

  • Jacquie Barker


Thus far, we have been focused on the static structure of the problem being modeled — the floor plan for our custom home, as it were. As we learned in Chapter 10, this static structure is communicated via a class diagram plus supporting documentation. The building blocks of a class diagram are:
  • Classes.

  • Associations/aggregations.

  • Attributes.

  • Generalization/specialization hierarchies (also known as inheritance relationships).

  • Operations/methods. These are conspicuously absent from our class diagram. Why? Because they are not part of the static structure, so we haven’t discussed how to determine these yet; this will be the focus of this chapter.
