Company in Domain Model

Hello,

this is my first post in JR.

I have a question about domain model and I hope I can formulate it without break Sun/Oracle rules.
If a domain model contains an element "company" (i.e. the company for which I design the architecture), does it mean that my system must be multi-company (like an e-commerce software that can be used by many companies and every transaction is associated with one company)?

I hope the question is comprensible too... :P

Thank you

Stefano,
Welcome to CodeRanch!

While your question certainly doesn't break any rules, there isn't enough information to answer. Does the assignment imply anything that signifies you have to support more than one company?

Whatever you decide, be sure to list it as an assumption.

Thank you very much

Actually, no. Nothing except an association 1-* between company and a "request" element.
I think I'll follow your advice and write specific assumption.

Thank you
