Message Andrea,

i create my models by doing a package for use cases, one for analysis
classes, and one for design classes. i promote (by copy) my analysis
classes from analysis to design as i fill in the design. i agree, that
to much detail to early promotes design during requirements analysis.
i think that the people here think mostly in terms of using UML for
design. Mostly i do requirements analysis and the usual solutions to
problems people propose here like generate code edit, and reimport
don't do me much good ;-)

best jim
