When we are showing two dependent classes in the Rational Rose [2002], first up i'm not getting any symbol in the dependency relationship.
But, after importing a Common ".cat" file in that "mdl", i can see a 'M' encircled at the end of the dependency relationship.
What does this mean? Can i proceed with the same? Since i donno the exact meaning of this i'm not sure how to avoid this as well as not sure of keeping the same in the class diagram.
Can anyone throw a light on this?
Thanks in Advance,
Balaji.M

[�] �you can prevent the creation of unresolved references by loading all

units before deleting elements from a model and making sure that the

units are write-enabled. Rose can change the units. If you know which

units contain references to the element to be deleted, you only have to

load those units. At the aforementioned Web site is a script that reports

all units with references to a selected element, and there are several

scripts that help you load controlled units or load a workspace

(predefined group of units).



Rose can also give you another hint about unresolved references. You

might encounter a circle with an "m" inside attached to a model element

on a diagram (Figure 2). You will not see these if you disabled the

AdornUnresolvedReferences option. Rose will show these adornments if

it cannot find the element that the icons represent. This means that the

representing elements are not loaded in the model, or that they have

been deleted without removing this icon from the diagram (because the

diagram was not loaded).�[�]
