General description

Name: List
Submitted by: EvaBlomqvist
Also Known As:
Intent: To represent ordered collections, i.e. lists.
Competency Questions:
  • What are the items (elements) in this list?
  • What is the length (size) of this list?
  • What is the first/last item in this list?
  • What resource does this list item contain?
  • What it the next/previous item in the list?
Solution description: Representing ordered lists, through a specialization of the bag pattern, where each resource in the bag is referred through an item, so that the same item can occur in several places. The usual properties of lists are also there, i.e. the sequence of elements, and references to the first and last item.
