Subject Re: Relationships between datamaps in different projects
Date Thu, 03 Nov 2011 13:12:15 GMT
This is one of the unsolved things. The relationships between DataMaps are supported in runtime
(all DataMaps are loaded in a single namespace, so entities can reference each other freely).

During modeling I am not sure how we can do that. We just had this discussion in my company
recently, but no solution yet. If there are ideas how that can be implemented, let's discuss.

in the GUI?
