Description Andrew Korostelev 2006-08-18 15:53:10 UTC
From software forum posting:

There's a preference for Assocition that is set to Yes as defalt for processed
during Round Trip Engineering (Tools->Options->UML->Round Trip
Engineering->Elements->Associations). However, setting this preference to Yes or
No doesn't do anything because code is not generated for Associations. 

Once user manually adds the attributes in the source to make it look like
navigable association but still wants just the association link on the diagram,
a Navigable Aggregation link is created on the diagram. This is not what user wants.

Repro steps:
- create an empty java project
- create a java-platform uml project and associate with the java project
- create a class diagram
- create and name 2 classes as "c1" and "c2"
- create an Association link between the 2 classes
- Navigate to Source for class "c1"
- add the following attribute to "c1" source
  private c2 cc2;
Result: the getter/setter are generated in the source and an extra Navigable
Aggregation link is created between classes "c1" and "c2" in the diagram.
