Local variable associations

I’m using Visual Paradigm to reverse engineer a simple Java project.

Everything works fine, but I don’t like it that local variable definitions are not shown as associations.

When I have this code:

public class classB{

public class classA{
public void callClassB(){
ClassB B = new ClassB();

It does not show any kind of association in Visual Paradigm.

Is it possible to show an association in VP, or can someone explain to me why this is not showing up?


Hi Fokker,

Thanks for your post. It should be dependency rather than association, and we do not analyze the implementation in code. That’s why you cannot see any association when reverse.

Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further question.
