BPMN2 — Cardinality of the "sourceRef" association between DataAssociation and ItemAwareElement

  • Key: BPMN2-220
  • Legacy Issue Number: 14819
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: International Business Machines ( Ms. Suzette Samoojh)
  • Summary:

    See figure 10.61. The "sourceRef" assocation.

    The cardinality on the DataAssociation end is 1. This tells me that any given DataAwareElement must be the source of exactly one DataAssociation.

    This doesn't work:

    • DataAwareElement are not required to participate in data associations.
    • Data Objects can be the source of multiple data associations.

    So the cardinality should be 0..n
