Subject: Re: Thrusday con call


One other change that comes to mind is that methods were added to the ManagedObject interface and the

interfaces that it is related to in Fig 1. These are simple get methods that reflect the relationship

link between the two interfaces (blue lines in Fig 1). The methods are an algorithmic mapping of the
relationship links in Fig 1 wher ethe pattern is getXXX where XXX is the role name played by the
target (other side) of the relationship. Note I use the word relationship (not Association as called
in UML) so as to not confuse it with teh Association interface in RIM.

These methods were added to facilitate ad hoc queries to define predicates on the relationship
attributes with the same ease as primitive attributes such as name as defined by getName method in
Object interface.

I believe these are all the changes I am aware of besides readability edits.

Please note that I will not dial in to the call unless I get an explicit invitation by you prior to
the meeting in respect of this being a private working team meeting.
