What do you really mean by "meta class"? I've look through UML 1.1, 1.3 and 1.4 and there is nothing with such name. > Third question > can I define dependencies between two stereotypes for example > a <<comopsite > attribute>> has <<simple attribute>>(s). (In UML 1.4) a Stereotype is a GeneralizableElement, that is a ModelElement. A Dependency involves one or more ModelElement as supplier and one or more ModelElement as client (page 5-27 of UML V1.4 draft February 2001). There are no extra well-formed rules for Dependency. Therefore, UML 1.4 allows dependencies between stereotypes. Ivan
