2. Project 2 - Assigning a capital to a country, as well as members and a headquarter location to an organization

This project is based on the information design model shown below. The corresponding app from the previous assignments is to be extended by adding the possibility to manage data about international organizations, with countries as members, and about cities, as capitals and headquarter locations. This is achieved by adding corresponding model classes InternationalOrganization and City, and the following unidirectional associations:

  1. a many-to-many association between InternationalOrganization and Country assigning zero or more countries as the members of an international organization, and

  2. a one-to-one association between Country and City assigning exactly one city as the capital of a country,

  3. a one-to-many association between Country and City assigning cities to a country.
