Hi,

I am new here and need some help Not sure if I am posting at the right place. I am just wondering on how to display generalization in Domain Model not Class Diagram. I know generalization can be shown in Class Diagram. Most of the domain models I have seen for have not much information in showing generalization and I still cannot find any rules stating Generalization cannot be shown in Domain Model. In UML, it just state that there is such an element, Generalization, in showing the relationship. Of course, most of the time is shown in Class Diagram.

Any opinions are welcomed

Thanks.

Hi Scott,

welcome to the ranch .

There is no difference between a domain model and a class diagram. Domain model is a more practical term than class diagram. A domain model simply describes a real world problem domain. There is also no rule that generalization is not allowed in a domain model. So if it makes sense in your problem domain use it in your domain model.
