    @UML(identifier="GM_CompositeSurface",
         specification=ISO_19107)
    public interface CompositeSurface
    extends Composite, OrientableSurface
    A complex with all the geometric properties of a surface. Thus, this composite can be considered as a type of orientable surface. Essentially, a composite surface is a collection of oriented surfaces that join in pairs on common boundary curves and which, when considered as a whole, form a single surface.
    Since:
    GeoAPI 1.0
    TODO:
    This interface extends (indirectly) both Primitive and Complex. Consequently, there is a clash in the semantics of some set theoretic operation. Specifically, Primitive.contains(\u2026) (returns FALSE for end points) is different from Complex.contains(\u2026) (returns TRUE for end points).

        @Association("Composition")

             obligation=MANDATORY,
             specification=ISO_19107)
        Set<OrientableSurface> getGenerators()
        Returns the set of orientable surfaces that form the core of this complex. To get a full representation of the elements in the complex, the curves and points on the boundary of the generator set of surfaces would be added to the curves in the generator list.
        Specified by:
        getGenerators in interface Composite
        Returns:
        the list of orientable surfaces in this composite.
