Instance Mapping page
This page shows attributes and other
data for one AIM instance in the ARM concept.
Representation of the AIM instance in the physical file format is shown
first. An alternative
view of this instance is below. The current view shows one of the
alternatives. If you

All attributes grouped by ARM entity
data types are
listed below. The order of the ARM
entity data types is the same as inheritance - from the top to the

complicated. The order of attributes is the same as listed originally
in the EXPRESS file. There are four fields in one line for every

with minus button. The fourth field is used to show if an attribute
set. If the '$' mark is present then the attribute is not set and when
the '$' is absent,
the attribute is set even if no value appears (e.g. set with an empty
All instances (ARM type and AIM
instance pair) which
reference the displayed instance are listed in this table. The first
column - 'Source definition', shows which ARM entity instance and its
attribute refers this instance and the second - 'Target

all inverses from this domain will be listed here.
