UML Abstraction connector example in Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect


An 'Abstraction' is a relationship between two elements that represent the same concept, either at different levels of abstraction or from different viewpoints. This diagram shows that two different customer Classes from different models (the Domain model and the Code model) represent the same concept.

The 'Abstraction' relationship is a subtype of a 'Dependency' relationship.
