No Stereotypes filled in for Association End/Roles
« on: November 21, 2015, 04:30:50 pm »
Hi,
I'm surprised that a MDG profile (still) can't apply role stereotypes for associations (and any TaggedValue that would be associated with that Stereotype).

I mean, the following special attributes below do exist :

* _SourceMultiplicity
* _TargetMultiplicity
* _SourceNavigability
* _TargetNavigability


... so why not add also the following two attributes

* _SourceStereotypes
* _TargetStereotypes?

I asked about "auto-insertion" of these role Stereotypes (perhaps) two years ago, but it seems like it still have not slipped in.

And yes I know, one CAN drop Role items from the ToolBox with the desired Stereotypes (which will then apply its stereotype to the association ends)  but since links often have typical configurations (different settings in each end) one would save a lot of time when modelling if one could have complete (pre-) configured Connections by simply drawing the link and then go directly to fill in the TVs that comes with the stereotypes.
