	I disagree. Remember that we want to create UML diagrams
	that can be used to generate more than one type of language
	code. This is why I like "string" which can be a 'universal' datatype,
	shown in the UML,  and the individual code generator can interpret this, 
	as desired. 
	In the case of Java, 'string' should be converted to "String" in 
	generated code. In the case of CPP, it depends on the user configuration,
	(see the configuration for the langauge, but it defaults to std::string as
	the class type).
