Nested Class Question

Dear all,

how do you represent a nested class in UML notation? dependency? Inheritance? :oops:

You can use containment relationships. Please see the attached screenshot for more detail.

Hello everybody!

Im developing a pogramm in Python, using the class diagramm and the code generator.
I’d like to add several classes to the same file, so I used the containment relation.
(see attachment)

Now, the code generator puts all the classes to the same file. Fine!
But after a second look, I noticed, that the generalization was now wrong!

The code I supposed to have was:


#===============================================================================
class MainClass():

  pass

#===============================================================================
class Parentclass():

  pass

#===============================================================================
class ChildClass(Parentclass):

  pass

and I got…


#===============================================================================
class MainClass():

  pass

#===============================================================================
class Parentclass():

  pass

#===============================================================================
class ChildClass(MainClass.Parentclass):

  pass

I’d prefer to have all the classes on the same level an not in a hierarchic structure!
Can I fix this by using another connector instead of containment?

greetings,
Simon
