dependency is a weaker relationship than association.Association is a structural relationship and dependency is a relationship that can last say only for a method invocation. Ex the relationship between your DisplayPerson.jsp(a jsp used to display person details) and you Person class is a dependency where as the relationship b/w your person class and you ContactInfo class is an association.(assuming you person has a contact info) Hope that helps
