Hello, I have a question about how associations defined in a UML meta-model are instantiated. What happens to the multiplicities of an association defined between two meta-classes ? For example an association "ass" is defined between two metaclasses A and B, with multiplicity * (not explicitly defined): ass |A| -----> |B| * An instantiated model can be made of a class A' (instance of the metaclass A) and a class B' (instance of B) and relation ass' between A' and B'. Does the multiplicity of ass' have to be a specific number or it can still remain unspecified with "*" ? Thanks, Simona.
