Class ComplexAspect

An ComplexAspect instance is associated with every complex object instance and is accessed via the complex object's 'complexAspect' property.

The ComplexAspect itself provides properties to determine the parent object, parent property and original values for the complex object.

A ComplexAspect will almost never need to be constructed directly. You will usually get an ComplexAspect by accessing an entities 'complexAspect' property. This property will be automatically attached when an complex object is created as part of an entity via either a query, import or EntityManager.createEntity call.

 // assume address is a complex property on the 'Customer' type
 var aspect = aCustomer.address.complexAspect;
 // aCustomer === aspect.parent;
