Unnamed associations (Reviewer Review)
An association has the default name of “associates”.
The purpose of an association is to communicate in an unambiguous way how two things relate to each other.
Consider this:
Is the association modeling:
Books owned by a person?
Books read by a person?
The authors of the book?
Books loved by a person?
The list of possibilities is endless.
Unless the association is named it is difficult to understand the validity of the model.
Name the association.
