XMI12 — Association elements when no immediate references

  • Key: XMI12-56
  • Legacy Issue Number: 3949
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Google ( Don Baisley)
  • Summary:

    The XMI 1.1 Specification says an Association elements is generated only if
    there is no reference for the Association. But if the only references are
    defined on subclasses of related types, then links could be created between
    objects of the more general type, and those links cannot be passed via XMI
    because there is no reference on the general type. Therefore, the
    specification needs to state more precisely that an Association element is
    generated in a DTD if it has no reference whose container is equal to the
    type of the reference's exposedEnd.
