Relationships between the Core Concepts

To put views and viewpoints in context, we can now extend the conceptual model we introduced in Chapter 2 to illustrate how views and viewpoints contribute to the overall picture (see Figure 3-1).

Figure 3-1

Figure 3-1. Views and Viewpoints in Context

We have added the following relationships to the diagram we originally presented as Figure 2-5.

  • A viewpoint defines the aims, intended audience, and content of a class of views and defines the concerns that views of this class will address.
  • A view conforms to a viewpoint and so communicates the resolution of a number of concerns (and a resolution of a concern may be communicated in a number of views).
  • An AD comprises a number of views.
