Difference between Extends and Inherits (StereoTypes in Generalization Properties) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,
    I am quite new to VISIO and need to show relationship between classes. I have an abstract class and need to show relationship between it and the one which derives it.

    I am using a Generalization arrow for this but i am quite confused with different stereotypes(Inherits, Uses, Extends). In above case, If I am right then EXTENDS Stereotype seems to be the correct option.

    If there is any link which describes the correct usage of these options then please follow up.
