UML Class Diagram Generalization Example
UML Diagrams

The Generalization association ("is a") is the relationship between the base class that is named as “superclass” or “parent” and the specific class that is named as “subclass” or “child”.

The UML diagram's Generalization association is also known as Inheritance. The subclass is a particular case of the superclass and inherits all attributes and operations of superclass, but can have your own additional attributes and operations.

In UML is used also the multiple inheritance when the subclass inherits properties and behaviors of more than one superclass.

On the UML Diagram the Generalization association represents as the line with empty triangle that connects superclass and subclass.

Near the Generalization association line can be write in { } any additional properties of this association that display as the constraints.

You can use the following UML keywords as constraints:

  • complete – signify that in this generalization association are specified all subclasses and the superclass cannot have another subclasses.
  • disjoint – signify that subclasses cannot contain the objects that are the instances of two or more classes at the same time.
  • incomplete – signify that on the diagram are not specified all the subclasses
  • overlapping – signify that some instances of subclasses can belong to two or more classes at the same time.

Example 1. UML Class Diagram Generalization Example

This sample was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software using the UML Class Diagram library of the Rapid UML Solution from the Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

This sample describes the use of the classes, the generalization associations between them, the multiplicity of associations and constraints.

UML Class Diagram Constructor →

UML Class Diagrams is a type of static structure diagram that is used both for general conceptual modeling of the systematics of the application, and for detailed modeling translating the models into programming code. It describes the structure of a system by showing the: classes of a system, attributes, operations, and the relationships between them. The Rapid UML Solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM includes the UML Class Diagram library that helps you to design the UML Class Diagram quick and easy. You can simply and quickly drop the ready-to-use objects from the library into your document to create the UML Class Diagram.UML Class Diagram Constructor *

UML Class Diagram Notation →

When it comes to system construction, a class diagram is the most widely used diagram. UML Class Diagrams is a type of static structure diagram that is used for general conceptual modeling of the systematics of the application. Such a diagram would illustrate the object-oriented view of a system. The object orientation of a system is indicated by a class diagram. It describes the structure of a system by showing the general issues,classes of a system, attributes, operations, interfaces, inheritance, and the relationships between them.UML Class Diagram Notation *
