This week's book giveaway is in the Agile and Other Processes forum. We're giving away four copies of The Little Book of Impediments (e-book only) and have Tom Perry on-line! See this thread for details.
Please clarify the following:
1. Should parent-child relationship (generalization relationship association) be shown in analysis class diagram (in particular, SCEA PART 2 - class diagram)? I have a scenario in my project for class diagram where a composite pattern is a good fit which is based on parent-child relationship. I'm asking for this clarification as I think parent-child concept is to be presented as part of design and not analysis phase, may be I'm incorrect, please help me understand.
2. If no, will a dependency relationship suffice from parent to child?
