Relations as Object Model Components

Abstract [en]

Although object-oriented methods make extensive use of relations between objects, these relations, other than inheritance and part-of, cannot directly be represented by the conventional object-oriented model. This means that relations which are identified during analysis and design have to be implemented on top of the object model, i.e. by using method code and message passing, rather than by expressing relations directly within the model. It would be beneficial if the object oriented model would support the specification of all relevant types of relations within the model, including application-domain specific relation types. Therefore, we propose a mechanism, implemented in LAYOM-an extended object model, that supports the specification of all types of relations between objects within the model as components of the object model. In addition, an approach for identifying and specifying application-domain relation types is presented.
