UML Distilled (3rd Edition)

In September 2003, the 3rd edition of UML Distilled appeared. To keep up to date with the UML, you should get the new edition as it is compatible with the latest UML 2 standard. For people who have the 2nd edition, I will keep the errata for the 2nd edition available.

Errors in the 11th thru 18th printing

Page 42: First paragraph, second line. "property owner:Person[1]" should read "property owner:Person[0..1]" (From 11th to 17th editions it was miscorrected to "Person[/0../1]".) [Corrected in the 18th printing]

Errors in the 8th thru 11th printing

Page 42: First paragraph, second line. "property owner:Person[1]" should read "property owner:Person[0..1]" (From 11th to 17th editions it was miscorrected to "Person[/0../1]".) [Corrected in the 18th printing]

Errors in the 7th printing

The client/supplier vocabulary makes sense for general dependencies, but the more general source/target vocabulary is better for many of the dependencies in Table 3.1.
