If I'm not mistaken, the Diagram is the root container of the PE (pictogram elements), and inside it we have other PE, some of which are linkd to BO (business objects).
Now, I would have thought that the diagram itself would be linked to one root BO (container of the other BOs) but in the examples this is not so.

Can (should) this be done? It seems more conceptually natural to me - and, further, perhaps I'm interested in having some BO inside my root object that do no have a graphical representation but that could be modified from outside the editor (in a View, for example, or from some external event).

Hi Hernan,

the Graphiti gurus might have more information in detail. But generally you could
call link(diagram, bo); just as for any other object.

Hi Hernan,
that's right. Diagram is also a PictogramElement, therefore you can link one or more BusinessObjects.
