Relations between objects

Relations between objects are defined using the following symbols :

Type Symbol Image
Extension <|--
Composition *--
Aggregation o--

It is possible to replace -- by .. to have a dotted line.

Knowing those rules, it is possible to draw the following drawings.

It is possible a add a label on the relation, using : followed by the text of the label.

For cardinality, you can use double-quotes "" on each side of the relation.

@startuml
object Object01
object Object02
object Object03
object Object04
object Object05
object Object06
object Object07
object Object08

Object01 <|-- Object02
Object03 *-- Object04
Object05 o-- "4" Object06
Object07 .. Object08 : some labels

Adding fields

To declare fields, you can use the symbol : followed by the field's name.

@startuml

object user

user : name = "Dummy"
user : id = 123

@enduml

It is also possible to group all fields between brackets {}.

@startuml

object user {
  name = "Dummy"
  id = 123
}
