Classes and the Stereotype-property

Today, I read something really interesting in Borland's public newsgroups about ECO III. I always wondered, just like the person, who was asking for help, what the Stereotype-property in ECO classes was used for.

The answer is pretty simple: Nothing.

ECO does not use this property at all, it is there for UML modeling purposes only and will not be transfered into your ECO sourcecode.

However, you can access information on that property during runtime using UmlRt.

Mr. Peter Morris also noted that he used it to categorize his classes. He proposes to google for the phrase "Modeling in Color" in order to get more information on that topic.
