Short answer: You can achieve N-to-N relationships in MiddleKit by using
an intermediate object.
I presented a paper on Webware (with a section on MiddleKit) at Linuxtag 2002
which contains an example of this. You can find it at
The relevant section is under the heading "The Design Stage", about halfway
into the paper.
