MDG: <AppliesTo> and ArchiMate Aggregation
« on: April 14, 2016, 12:26:01 pm »
ArchiMate2.xml has the following for Composition:
            <AppliesTo>
              <Apply type="Aggregation"/>
              <Apply type="Composition"/>
            </AppliesTo>

but has the following for Aggregation:
            <AppliesTo>
              <Apply type="Aggregation"/>
            </AppliesTo>

is there some rationale, for this or just an oversight?

For the benefit of others,
the Aggregation will ONLY work if the ONLY <Apply type="Aggregation"/>
Association will work if the ONLY <Apply type="Association"/>

For some EAUI reason, Composition allows more than one.
