Hi Folks, I'm working through my diagrams and have a question...

In your opinion, is the "empty" style of class diagram used by Cade sufficient for part II? (i.e. a class diagram without any attributes or operations specified.)

On the one hand it seems that it should be sufficient as we're focusing on architecture and the definition of attributes and operations is a task typically done during detailed design by the developer. On the other hand, our objective is "architecture and design" of the system and the class diagram just seems so incomplete without the attributes and operations.

I'm currently using the cade style, without attributes or operations, but it just looks so empty that I'm a little uncertain.

Opinions...?

Thanks!
Mike
