The Project_Dependencies_Deliverable_DependentProjects association relates project to dependencies and relates deliverables to dependent projects.

<Association Name="Project_Dependencies_Deliverable_DependentProjects">
  <End Type="ReportingData.Deliverable" Role="Deliverable_DependentProjects" Multiplicity="*" />
  <End Type="ReportingData.Project" Role="Project_Dependencies" Multiplicity="*" />






Identifies the entity types and the navigation properties that form the two-way association for projects and deliverables. In the first half of the name, Project is the entity type and Dependencies is the navigation property. In the second half of the name, Deliverable is the entity type and DependentProject is the navigation property.



Schema element: ReportingData

The schema for the reporting data in the ProjectData service.

The Project_Dependencies_Deliverable_DependentProjects association element contains two End elements that represent opposite ends of the association. The Role attribute is a lookup key that enables a navigational property to specify the direction in the association. The Multiplicity attribute refers to the entity type. Multiplicity indicates the number of entities that can be related at each end of the association: zero or one (0..1), or many (*). The Microsoft .NET implementation of OData uses 0..1 when the navigational property points to a single entity, rather than to an entity set.

Attributes of the End elements for the Project_Dependencies association






EntityType element: Project


There can be many project entities that correspond to dependency entities.


EntityType element: Deliverable


There can be many deliverable entities that correspond to dependent projects.

One end of the association is the Project entity, and the other end is the Deliverable entity. The Project entity type contains the Dependencies navigation property, where the FromRole defines Project_Dependencies as the start of the association to get the collection of dependencies for projects. Similarly, the Deliverable entity type contains the DependentProjects navigation property, where the FromRole defines Deliverable_DependentProjects as the start of the association to get the dependent projects that are associated with a collection of deliverables.
