Class diagram is an important one to know if you are a business analyst. Like use case diagrams, these class diagrams also explain the application in a pictorial representation, but in more technical way where a common user cannot understand by looking at these. A class diagram represents the relation between each class of the entire application. In one way it is a static representation of a structure of an application. It clearly tells the different classes and its attributes and relation between each class.
Normally for each member there will be few notations to tell more about the class member. These notations are placed before class. They are PUBLIC, PROTECTED, PRIVATE & PACKAGE.
