Aggregations

Go back

An aggregation between an aggregator and an aggregated is a relationship where the aggregator is superior to the aggregated.

It's a bit hard to explain, but to put it simply,

  • when you have a relation 1..n between A and B,
  • and the relationship isn't equals (like A owning/using/... B)

Then you have an aggregation.
