Gil,

thanks for the suggestion.
We will consider it and will probably add it to our future releases.

Best regards,

object diagram enhancments

Hi,

UML 1.4 Specification define the following diagram type:

3.20 Object Diagram
"An object diagram is a graph of instances, including objects and data
values. A static
object diagram is an instance of a class diagram; it shows a snapshot of the
detailed
state of a system at a point in time. The use of object diagrams is fairly
limited, mainly
to show examples of data structures.
Tools need not support a separate format for object diagrams. Class diagrams
can
contain objects, so a class diagram with objects and no classes is an
“object diagram.”
The phrase is useful, however, to characterize a particular usage achievable
in various
ways."

magicdraw ver# 5.5 supports class diagram and allow place objects in class
diagram.

the feature I'm missing is generation of paths to other instances. like if
Class A
is associated with Class B than MD will help me to generate a path from
object
of type A to Object of type B based on that association.


Best regards,
Gil.
