In the graphical representation of class diagrams, classes are represented as subdivided rectangles. The classes are arranged in groups and contain the class name, attributes, and methods or operations. The class boxes are connected by lines that have arrows at one of their ends. They are used to establish the relationships between the classes. A simple relationship consists of association, another consists of one class being included in another. This relationship is called aggregation, and the third type of relationship is specialization.
