Resolution Specifier


Conflicts between the existing classes or attributes, and inheritance conflicts can occur if the database schema is modified. If the system fails to resolve a conflict automatically or if you don't like the way the system resolved the problem, you can suggest how to resolve the conflict by using the INHERIT clause of the ALTER statement (often referred as resolution specifier).

When the system resolves the conflict automatically, basically, the existing inheritance is maintained (if any). If the previous resolution becomes invalid when the schema is modified, the system will arbitrarily select another one. Therefore, you must avoid excessive reuse of attributes or methods in the schema design stage because the way the system will resolve the conflict cannot always be predictable.

What will be discussed concerning conflicts is applied commonly to both attributes and methods.
