A profile diagram operates at the metamodel level to show stereotypes as classes with the
<<stereotype>> stereotype, and profiles as packages with the
<<profile>> stereotype. The extension relation (solid line with closed, filled arrowhead) indicates what metamodel element a given stereotype is extending.
The profile diagram didn't exist in UML 1. It was introduced with UML 2 to display the usage of profiles. Before its introduction, other diagrams had been used to display this issue.
