Association Relationship in Component Diagram

Can we provide association relationships in Component Diagram? I have CMR EJBs and I would like to depict their relationship in component diagram.

I use 2 tools:

In Jude there is no way to model association relationship in component diagrams.

But in StarUML it is possible to do so.

I am confused as to whether we can use association relationship.

Somebody please help.

Are you sure that such a thing wouldn't be more appropriate in a different diagram?

Marc, Thanks a lot for your reply.

Yes it is very appropriate to put that in class diagram and I have done that also. But the requirement says the following "Create a component diagram that shows all J2EE components used in the system and their interaction. For example, what EJBs, servlets and/or JSPs might be needed?"

I didn't put those initially. But I don't want to loose marks on a silly mistake.

Please let me know what do you think.
