    public class RelationTypeSupport
    extends Object

    A relation type has to be declared in the Relation Service:

    - either using the createRelationType() method, where a RelationTypeSupport object will be created and kept in the Relation Service

    - either using the addRelationType() method where the user has to create an object implementing the RelationType interface, and this object will be used as representing a relation type in the Relation Service.
