Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (ODATA-24) Simplify how Relationships are expressed in CSDL

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/ODATA-24?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=31761#action_31761 ] 

Ralf Handl commented on ODATA-24:

As we are now allowing cross-service navigation, do we also want to allow function imports to return entities from a different service? They also have an EntitySet attribute which is currently restricted to SimpleIdentifier. 

We could generalize this by also allowing the qualified form possible for NavigationPropertyBinding. 

Which raises the question whether we should keep the SimpleIdentifier shorthand for referring to sets in the current entity container, for compatibility. And whether to allow it for NavigationPropertyBinding for consistency.

>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: OData CSDL v1.0

>            Reporter: Michael Pizzo
>            Assignee: Ralf Handl
>             Fix For: WD01
> Relationships are expressed in CSDL as binary associations with association sets; navigation properties reference these associations and describe target and source "ends" of these associations.
> The requirement of defining binary associations for each relationship makes the CSDL more verbose, harder to read, and moves the information that is interesting about the navigation property out of line.
> A simpler way to express navigation properties is summarized in the following presentation, presented at the first OData TC Meeting in July:  
> https://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/odata/download.php/46576/Association%20Simplification.pptx.
> A complete proposal would be the application of these concepts to [OData-CSDL].
