8.1 Abstractions and the Model

A model can contain any number of abstractions. As well as an aid to simplify the diagram view of the model, they can be used to restrict the model's build activity to those entities contained within the abstraction.

Abstractions are not transformed into repository objects when the model is built . They exist only to assist you when constructing the model.
