Pierre Smits commented on OFBIZ-11080:
--------------------------------------

By intend the view entity is an entity that is defined by the relation between 
the underlying data entities.

In view entities the relation between those data entities is defined by the 
<view-link ..../> element. As an example for the SalesOpportunityAndRole entity:
{code:java}
        <view-link entity-alias="SO" rel-entity-alias="SR" rel-optional="true">
            <key-map field-name="salesOpportunityId"/>
        </view-link>
{code}

The reason why relations for view entities (without <relation ..> elements) are 
not shown is that there is no equivalent, like the getRelationsIterator, to 
render the relation dataset in modelentity.java.




> View-entity does not show relations to underlying entities
