Associations and realizations of elements with namespaces

asked Nov 26 in Bug by TT (120 points)

In V1.2019.6, the A and B code output the same class diagram.
However, in V1.2019.12, the B code does not output the same class diagram.
I hope that the future version will output the same class diagram as V1.2019.6 from the B code.
Because I think that it is easy to read if associations and realizations are written near the source elements.

A:

@startuml
namespace A {
  class Foo {}
  class Bar {}
}

namespace A.B {
  interface Baz {}
  class Qux {}
}

A.Bar ..|> A.B.Baz
A.Foo ..|> A.B.Baz
A.B.Qux --> A.B.Baz
@enduml

B:

@startuml
namespace A {
  class Foo {}
  Foo ..|> A.B.Baz

  class Bar {}
  Bar ..|> A.B.Baz
}

namespace A.B {
  interface Baz {}
  class Qux {}
  Qux --> Baz
}
@enduml

Thank you very much for the useful tool!

Hi,

Thanks for the feedback, this is indeed a bug.

The internal Java code about namespace and package is very complex, and this is the cause of this bug.

We are currently thinking about deeply refactoring all this internal code (see http://alphadoc.plantuml.com/doc/asciidoc/en/poll-about-package-and-namespace )

So we will solve this issue in the future, probably at the beginning of 2020, because we need to finish our refactoring first.

We'll post a message here when this will be ready.

Hope this is fine for you !
