I have a question concerning an association: the association depicts a relationship between two objects, which is also defined by the properties of the objects (depending on how they are naviagble etc.).
In my diagram, I have a service which may be used for searches within a database as well as storing changes within the objects it searches (following the DAO pattern).
Does the service (the DAO) have an association to the objects it handles? It does not have a list of objects - it only provides search functionality. So I’m not quite sure…
Many thanks in advance - Alex
