Summary0000083: Solve the column name algorithm
DescriptionRole fixes are required to solve a name clash when a distinctive nominalised object is missing. The validation for model well-formedness warns for this.

In addition the GLR process can be adjusted to use the OriginalOT or a LabelType as a column name, again to solve name clashes. During this process of GLR transformation, CaseTalk attempts to resolve the role fixes and using OriginalOT where ever possible.

Despite the efforts sometimes the GLR still requires column fixes to be set manually, hence the existence of the ColumnFix-Dialog.
Additional InformationSolution:

By not simply setting the OriginalOT once during lexicalization, but simply appending all OrignalOT's, we would end up with a solid columnname. This column name is build using the full role path from the conceptual model.

The ColumnFix-Dialog would never have to be used again, since all columns are named after the conceptual role path. Only a shortening algorthm is required to generate proper DDL for a database.

Lexicalization code can be simplified much further and the outcome is far more preferable than it is currently.

Implemented and works great. Note, there's not backward compatibility option. This may affect already generated databases since new DDL scripts may have different column names.
