Subject RE: Issue 119: cannot add a constraint to a join table
Date Sun, 29 May 2005 19:47:19 GMT
It's supported under class elements, but IMO it's cleaner and straight
forward to set the constraints and whatever related inside the
associations <join>.

The declaration under class implies that we always have cardinality
greater than 1 for any element, like primary-key.

<class table="PERSON">
<primary-key table="PERSON">
<primary-key table="PERSON_DEPT">

It doesn't look good to me, and more, we can set primary-key or other
constraints for any table wherever we are.

<class table="APPLE">
<primary-key table="PERSON">
<primary-key table="PERSON_DEPT">

Hi Abe,

Learn something every day.

So in order to define a primary key constraint on a join table, I'll 
have to amend my primary-key proposal to include multiple column 
elements and name= and table= attributes.
