Issue

Within the RIM, the Attachment class is associated with Message. Attachments can also be associated with Batches.

Recommendation(s)

  • Add an association between Attchment and Batch to the RIM.
  • Alternatively (subject to backwards compatibility rules):
    • Add an association between Attachment and Transmission
    • Remove association between Attachment and Message

Rationale

Within the RIM, the Attachment class is associated with Message. Attachments can also be associated with Batches.

Recommended Action Items

  • Implement the proposed solution

Resolution

WITHDRAWN during March 2006 harmonization. Attachment is associated with Transmission, Batch is a specialization of transmission. The Attachment class isn't shown in RIM figures of the v3 publication package which caused confusion to occur.
