In certain use cases there could be a need to subtype Associations. Does Alfresco support it? I know Type and Aspects do have that notion.
No, associations are not defined outside of the context of a type or an association and do not have a mechanism to support extension. Further, associations do not support properties which may limit the usefulness of inheriting an association definition.
Thanks. Alex had responded to my earlier question on properties on Association. Agreed that in the absence of support for properties on Associations, inheritance has little value.
I really am looking for the capability to defined properties on Associations. We can model our way around it but that hits performance.
I am sure others would have asked for this feature. I am not sure if there is a product enhancement request yet or if there is a process for that.
