Hi,,

I know both , compo and aggre are types of associations between classes. I know that composition is a strong relation .. aggre is a weak one..
eg. There is College, Departments, and Professors..
College class has a strong relation with Departments as the departments dont have individual existence..
But it has weak relation with Professors... Even after college is destroyed Professors may exist..

Please explain using a coding example how do we implement Composition and ho w do we implement aggregation ?
