BACM — Semantic treatment of n-ary associations as tuples

  • Key: BACM-37
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Thematix Partners LLC ( Mr. James Rhyne)
  • Summary:

    The treatment of n-ary associations as a set of distinct tuples seems unnecessary and logically suspect.

  • Reported: BACM 1.0a1 — Thu, 20 Oct 2022 17:53 GMT
  • Disposition: Closed; No Change — BACM 1.0b2
  • Disposition Summary:

    Substance of the issue is unclear

    As noted in the comments, the use of tuples to define semantics of n-ary associations is well-defined in the literature and is neither unclear nor "logically suspect".
    The use of "tuples" occurs in 7.2.1, which is rewritten in proposal BACM-44 (to resolve issue BACM-43).
    It also occurs in 7.2.5. This section was reviewed and found to be both clear and logically sound.
