The importance of ownership for e-commerce
This paper examines the nature and characteristics of the ownership relationship between objects in an object-oriented database. The ownership relationship is distinguished from the Part-Whole relationship since these two are often confused. Dimensions of the ownership relationship are detailed and described with clarifying examples from the financial securities markets. These dimensions are: 1) exclusiveness, 2) dependency, 3) limitation, 4) status, 5) settlement, 6) documentation and 7) inheritance. Formal definitions of the dimensions of the ownership relationship are sketched out for the purpose of extending current Object-Oriented Database Models (OODBs). © 2003 by International Federation for Information Processing.
