PARTY — The Node class issue(s)

  • Key: PARTY-4
  • Legacy Issue Number: 3026
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Gazebo Software Solutions ( Robert Mickley)
  • Summary:

    The Node class is currently derived from CommonObject. This class is a base
    class for Party and supports interfaces for parties to ask about the roles
    they are involved in. There are two issues with this design. The first
    issue is that these interfaces are not supported by PartyRole or
    PartyRelationship. This has the effect of not allowing PartyRoles to have
    Roles. As an example, an employee is a role a person plays in its
    relationship with a company. A manager is role an employee plays in
    relation to it's department. This would be a role of a role. To support
    this, the PartyRole (and the PartyRelationship as well) should have the Node
    interfaces available as well.
