Description

Motivation The n-ary relationships should be used when: (a) a binary relationship really needs a further argument; (b) two binary relationships always go together and should be represented as one n-ary relation; (c) a relationship that is really amongst several things.

The motivation of this pattern is to express the inverse relationship of a n-ary one where there are distinguished participants. This patterns is inspired on the http://www.w3.org/TR/swbp-n-aryRelations/#choosingPattern1or2 pattern

Aim The aim of this pattern is to allow asking for n-ary relationships and its inverse without a complex query involving the class created to support the n-ary relation between the origin and destiantion classes of the n-ary relationship.
Solution description

Example

Problem example We might want to represent that the service providers provide a service at a place in a given period of time with a price. Also is needed represent that a service is offered by a provider.
Pattern solution example http://ontologydesignpatterns.org/wiki/Image:LP-IN-01v1.jpg
Consequences The main advantage of this pattern is that allows to ask for which services are provided by a service provider and vice versa without a complex query involving the class created to support the n-ary relation between service providers and services.
