Implementation of Barker notation


A couple of questions about PD's implementation of Barker notation.

1. I can't see the option to set a relationship as non-transferable (the 'diamond' icon). Short of implementing (say) an Extended Attribute to reflect this, is it possible in standard PD?

2. When generating a PDM from an LDM, is it still possible to implement only the leaf-subtyes as tables? Are there any plans to allow the choice of either supertype, subtypes or both (as you can in Oracle Designer)?

I'm using 16.5 SP03 PL03.




Yes you can define an extended attribute:

1 add a new or existing extension to your CDM

2 edit this extension

3 if the Metaclass "BaseLogicalRelationship" from pdcdm not exists under profile then add it by rightclick

4 select Relationship, add an extended attribute and name it:
