comment Why is UML not used in most free software (e.g. on Linux)?
@Euphoric Although the last paragraph answers the question, the rest of it is necessary to set the background and normalize on terms and concepts. And no, it already had 4 reopen votes - I casted the 5th and answered.

comment What is “recorded” relationship in a class diagram?
I think part of the problem is that this book is trying to teach you a design methodology. Unless someone understands that particular design methodology, it will be hard to answer your questions.

comment What is “recorded” relationship in a class diagram?
I think there is more context somewhere. This quote, by itself, without more surrounding information, doesn't make sense. One sentence is "Recorded are all very common relationships in a class diagram." Recorded where? A table or figure? A diagram? If it's a diagram, what does the diagram look like? If it's a table, what other things are in that table that could be helpful.

comment What is “recorded” relationship in a class diagram?
Without more context, I'm not sure that this is answerable. Are there any diagrams or figures associated with this text? Is this part of a larger section where these terms are used in some kind of specific context?

comment Is “string literal” always the same as “hard-coded string”?
Have you read the Wikipedia article on string literals, or done any other basic searching? If so, what have you read and what, exactly is confusing?

Do you predict that you will add additional subclasses to AbstractService, or is that unlikely?

comment How to deal with a bug which seems to have fixed itself?
We have several related questions here on Programmers: Turn away a bug if no reproducible test case exists? How do I isolate difficult to reproduce bugs? How to most effectively debug code? Un-Explainable Bugs? What to do with bugs that do not repro?
