The top level packages in a model (below the project root nodes) can be created as Views.

Views are used simply to subdivide the model into partitions such as Business Process, Logical View or Dynamic View. Unlike Model Packages, they do not have automatically-generated components and can be created only under a root node. They are a good way to extend the model depending on specific requirements and modeling techniques.



View Types

There are six main types of View, each with their own package icon:

  • Use Case View - containing, for example, Use Case diagrams, Analysis diagrams
  • Dynamic View - containing, for example, Activity diagrams, Communication diagrams, Sequence diagrams, State Machine diagrams
  • Class View - containing, for example, Class diagrams, Code Engineering, Data Models
  • Component View - containing, for example, Component diagrams
  • Deployment View - containing, for example, Deployment diagrams
  • Simple View - to customize your own type of view
  • You can use the first five categories, or devise your own based on the Simple View. You can create Views, rename them, move them into a different order, or delete them. Do this by right-clicking the mouse on the selected View to open the context menu, and choose the appropriate option
