A class describes a set of objects that have the same characteristics and semantics. Classes can also be supplemented with attributes and methods.
The stereotype of class is <<Class>>. You need the stereotype when you create document templates, queries, forms, or search for a class in the tool.
In the Stereotypes window, you can find the stereotype under Type. The stereotype contains the substereotypes BusinessEntity, BusinessService, BusinessView, Interface, ModelService, Model, and SemanticType. You can create additional sub-stereotypes or user-defined properties. Properties do not have to be created separately for each sub stereotype, since the properties are inherited from the main stereotype.
