Just for grins, I tried running the SwiftData generation tool on the existing Core Data model of a non-trivial app I've worked on for a decade or so. It's pretty substantial, and uses some more advanced features, so it seemed like an interesting test case.
One of the warnings that was not reported by the UI, but which showed up in the generated code was quite a few instances of this:
Entity inheritance on entity Bar (parent class Foo) is unsupported in SwiftData.
Now that I'm looking at the code examples more carefully, I see an awful lot of
final class, which maybe should have raised a red flag sooner. But to the best of my recollection, none of the sessions outright said that inheritance (was or) was not supported. Core Data has supported this functionality for a long time (maybe since the beginning).
Assuming that this isn't supported in this first seed, are there plans to provide this functionality in the future? By the launch of iOS 17?
(For the record, this model has 93 entities, of which 34 have parent entities. 14 are abstract, which I gather is also not supported. 3 of the entities are both abstract and have parent entities.)
