Dependencies can be used between Services and Entities, they won't need any stereotype assigned to them. These dependencies are used to produce entity references (from an entity or service) within the base classes (i.e. DaoBase and ServiceBase), or to produce service references (from another service) within the ServiceBase classes. Entity business operations can be set to classifier scope instead of the usual instance scope. By doing so they will be generated into the corresponding DAO for that entity instead of the entity implementation class. Entity query operations (i.e. finders) can be denoted by setting the query flag on the modeled operation to true (they do not require any stereotypes) and setting it's scope to classifier. Actors represent roles within your model. To designate that a role has access to a given service you must draw a dependency from an Actor to the <<Service>>. To designate the role has access to to a given operation, you must draw a dependency from an Actor to the operation.

AndroMDA EJB3 Cartridge Profile

This profile contains all elements that can be applied on the model used as the MDA transformation process. These elements are specific to the AndroMDA EJB3 Cartridge component.

Tagged Values
Sometimes it happens you want to add information to the model but there is no clean way of doing it. In those cases you may want to resort to tagged values, but these cases should be considered with caution. A tagged value is something extra, something optional, and the application should run fine without them.
