Based on my understanding of Model View Presenter (MVP) I have it generate a diagram. Is this a correct implementation of MVP?

What deficiencies are there in my implementation?

    \$\begingroup\$ Very nice implementation. There is very little I would change, and then it would likely be more as personal preferences. For example, I've tended to define a single source for all the Enum declarations and converters in a module instead of a persistent class. In that module, I'll often include a central list of custom error codes and descriptions to ensure consistency of numbering across the app. These aren't nits at all, more stylistic differences. Good work. \$\endgroup\$ – PeterT Feb 22 at 15:20
