Association between multiple database tables in which each pair of tables involved are joined using conditions between one or more columns. Joins can be implemented declaratively as views in ABAP Dictionary, or programmatically as join expressions in the SELECT statement or in the CDS DDL in ABAP CDS. CDS associations and CTE associations, too, define join relationships, instances of which are created when the associations are used in SQL path expressions.
