I meet the question:
What is the difference between composite aggregation and normal aggregation.
a) Aggregation defines a part of relationship but both objects can exist independently.However, with composite aggregation if one part is removed, then the other part will also be removed. Think of a plane the wings have a composite aggregation relationship with the body of the plane.
b) Composite Aggregation defines a part of relationship but both objects can exist independently. However, with aggregation if one part is removed then the other part will be removed. Think of a plane, the wings have an aggregation relationship with the body of the plane.

The correct answer is a), but I can't fullly comprehend the concept, where can I find more stuff on this subject?

thanks in advanced
