I've fixed the multiplicity issues and altered the GeneratorJava class to return Lists instead of Vectors. However, I can't seem to get the generateVisibility method to give me the appropriate visibility. Here's what's happening:
I've created an issue for this:If I get a chance this weekend, I'll take a look at the existing code for this.Cheers,Mark

Perhaps using the Java profile? Since Oracle doesn't support 1.4 anymore, is there a reason that we would need to support the non-generic list?Mark

message was that you were changing the visibility on the wrong
association end. Remember that it's the *far* end that you need to
change for things like visibility and navigability.
Is the association navigable in both directions? (the default) If so,

you'll get data structures on both ends to allow you to get to the
other end. Set isNavigable to false on the end opposite where you
want the data structure to disappear from.
Support for UML Templates and Java generics is only partially

implemented. You could probably special case the code generation for
this specific use case without generics support, but you might need to
take backward compatibility into account (e.g. provide a preference
setting for what type to generate).
Note also that ArrayList and Vector have slightly different semantics,
particularly vis a vis synchronization, so the two types aren't
