Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (ODATA-535) Define specialization for terms

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/ODATA-535?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=34803#action_34803 ] 

Ralf Handl commented on ODATA-535:

If you already have an OData structured-type hierarchy and just want to use them in annotations, you can define a term for the top-level type and choose a derived type when annotating:

<Term Name="AThing" Type="org.schema.Thing" />

<Annotation Term="org.schema.AThing">
  <Record Type="org.schema.CreativeWork">
    <PropertyValue ... />

If you have a hierarchy of schema types in non-OData format you can choose to translate that into a term hierarchy backed by complex types that contain just the properties directly declared on each schema type, but not interconnected by inheritance.

>                 URL: http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/ODATA-535
>             Project: OASIS Open Data Protocol (OData) TC
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: OData CSDL
>    Affects Versions: V4.0_CS01
>         Environment: [Proposed]
>            Reporter: Ralf Handl
>             Fix For: V4.0_CSD03
> When merging type terms and value terms we lost the possibility to define terms that are a specialization of other terms, e.g. "developers are also people".
> What we can currently do:
> - define a term Person using complex PersonType
> - define a complex DeveloperType that inherits from PersonType
> - annotate something with term Person and use a record of type DeveloperType
> So someone knowing the term Person will find this term with additional properties defined on the DeveloperType. 
> (If we don't accept ODATA-513 that someone may only find the additional properties and none of the PersonType properties.)
