Message All of these are relevant defects and change requesst. None of them can be
implemented in ArgoUML at the moment.

The change to define a generic List should be an improved standard
behaviour for an anything to many relationship. Maybe we could even
recognise some stereotype to use Set instead when relevant.

I think a close equivilent of MAP in UML is the qualifier value that can be
set an association-end. This should be an indication to the code generator
to create a Map instead. The qualifier would by the key for that map.

I think if you have set the multiplicity to 1 and our currently geting a
vector that should be raised as a defect.

Please raise defects, enhancements as appropriate.

As Linus says you are free to try to implement. Hopefully you will find
help on the dev list or maybe the subcomponent owner will come in to
implement.

Regards

Bob
