There are no operations named “accelerate” or “brake” associated with rows in our “Car” table. Classes can be shown with attributes and no operations in UML, which is the typical usage for database schemas.

The roles of classes in a relationship may be indicated at the ends of the relationship. The number of objects involved in the relationship, referred to as multiplicity, may also be specified at the ends of the relationship. An asterisk indicates that many objects take part in the association at that end of the relationship. 2 indicate that an Employee is associated with one manager, and a manager is associated with many managed Employees. 2) A binary association is a relationship between two classes.

1, the weak entity Employee-job-history is related to the entity Employee and dependent upon Employee for its own existence. 2 Degree of a Relationship The degree of a relationship is the number of entities associated in the relationship.
