I have a simple RAP based OData Service with two custom entities which are associated one to another like so:
Root entity "RUN"
Root entity "MESSAGE"
So when I call all or a single "run" entity/ies, everything works fine.
Now I want to call the navigation property "to_Messages" of a single "run" entity, to display the results in a lineitem annotation like so:
I thought that as soon as I call the association, the RAP framework would call the if_rap_query_provider~select method of the class, which I defined in the child(associated) entity, like ZCL_CE_MXF_MESSAGE but instead, the framework calls the select method of the "run" entity in the ZCL_CE_MXF_RUN class.
If this works as intended how can I distinguish, which association was called? In the debugger it seems that it is a normal getEntity call of the "Run" entity with no additional information about the association or anything else, that could help me.
When I call the "Message" entity itself, the corresponding select method in the "Message" class is called. But not when I call it as an association of the "Run" Entity. I configured the relation between the two entities as composition in the first place, like in the answer of Andre Fischer in the question https://answers.sap.com/questions/13631104/abap-rap-complex-logic-for-read.html, but it was no difference.
Did I configured something wrong?
