   [Abstract, Version ( "2.10.0" ), 
    UMLPackagePath ( "CIM::Core::Collection" ), 
    Description ( 
       "The CollectionOfMSEs object allows the grouping of Managed "
       "SystemElements for various identification purposes and to "
       "reduce the complexity of associating Settings and "
       "Configurations. It is abstract to require further definition "
       "and semantic refinement in subclasses. The CollectionOfMSEs "
       "object does not carry any state or status information, but "
       "represents only a grouping or \'bag\' of Elements. For this "
       "reason, it is incorrect to subclass groups that have state or "
       "status from CollectionOfMSEs. An example is CIM_Redundancy "
       "Group (which is subclassed from LogicalElement). \n"
       "Collections typically aggregate similar (\'like\') objects,but "
       "they are not required to do so. Collections simply identify "
       "\'bags\' and might represent an optimization. This purpose is "
       "especially true with respect to their association to Settings "
       "and Configurations. Without Collections, you would need to "
       "define individual ElementSetting and ElementConfiguration "
       "associations, to tie Settings and Configuration objects to "
       "individual ManagedSystemElements. There might be duplication "
       "when assigning the same Setting to multiple objects. In "
       "addition, using the Collection object allows the determination "
       "that the Setting and Configuration associations are indeed the "
       "same for the Collection\'s members. This information would "
       "otherwise be obtained by defining the Collection in a "
       "proprietary manner, and then querying the ElementSetting and "
       "ElementConfiguration associations to determine if the "
       "Collection set is completely covered." )]
