Hi there,

Suppose I'm making a class diagram for my application...

Does it differ weteher I'm using MVC architecture or not?

Thank you!

A class diagram is a class diagram--it diagrams classes.

Thank you David,

I have an other question still about class diagrams:

Suppose I have categories of profiles: admins, users, and visitors.

Can I use inheritance although later in the database I'll just keep a field called 'role'?

Thank you.

No way to answer that question out of context.

In a website, visitors register then login, admins are users but with extra capabilities.

I know that this doesn't bring anything new, but this is my context, I got confused since in the database admins and registered users differ only by with 'role' property.
Visitors don't have any entry in the database.

Ask me if the context isn't clear yet.

I understand what you're trying to do, I just don't understand the question.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
