Subject Re: Splitting model
Date Wed, 24 Oct 2012 14:11:41 GMT
My idea was something like model import capabilities, so you can import 
models inside models, this needs to have 2 different paths: file path 
for modeler and runtime paths
Still this forces to have some special project layout between modules 
wich is not the best thing to enforce.

The main use case I can think of is a Core module + extra optional 
modules that expands the model with new entities (and usually this needs 
relationships with core).

analysis of the real use cases. The problem is more at the mapping level - how do you reference
an entity from another module when modeling your dependent module.
