•We can translate the entire isahierarchy as a
single relation.
•The relation has attributes from all entity sets in
the hierarchy.
•Attributes from one subclass may not be defined
for tuples from another subclass, so they are set
to NULL.
•Therefore, we must assume all attributes except
for the root attributes can be set to NULL.
•Only one relation necessary.
