I am working on my class diagram and all is well; however, I see myself using a lot of associations between classes, I have arrows pointing every ware like a game of snakes and ladders. Even though they clutter the diagram, they clear any ambiguity about the roles of the classes in mine diagram.

What should dude.

Gerald,
Are you giving every association a name or only selective ones? If selective, what is the general criteria for choosing to name an association?

Thanks,
Parag
 
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
