From what I have gathered, NORMA will/does target XML as an output for the model. After looking into some of the new ADO.NET entity framework concepts.. it would seem if those of us using ORM use the MS modeling tool for EDM, it will be a redundant effort. Since ORM contains the conceptual model it seems natural that NORMA would generate the ERD ...
It's just a thought, but if you put together the summary of objectives, organization and something like a work flow you anticipate for your non-profit, I'd think some here would be willing to work with you (as kind of a case study for the NORMA tool).
As the tool is still in CTP phase, a NP startup, of limited scope, could be a ...
Thanks for the fast response last night.... it was perfect timing. Awesome.
I hadn't noticed the documentation downloads before.... so I will be sure to check them out.
Currently using NORMA to design a startup nonprofit so we are beginning to put the tool through the paces.
I've been lurking on this board ...
Check out the documentation bundle in the download tab. These contain tutorial labs. I've forgotten if they go through the new project procedures for VS, or not. In any case, they are good intros to using fairly up to date releases of the NORMA tool.
Unless things have changed. You should choose only a regular application or console ...
Please accept our apologies; those instructions are very out of date. You no longer need to edit the project file by hand to get our generators working. Instead, you can just make a regular project (C# or VB), and add an ORM model to it. When you click on the file for that ORM model in the Solution Explorer, you should see an entry for ...
I am having problems trying to create the proper project file so I can generate DDL.
Following the instructions that were posted in the documentation structure.
Visual Studio doesn't like <Project>
The alternative doesn't seem right. <Project xmlns=''http://schemas.microsoft.com/developer/msbuild/2003''>
Can someone send/post a ...
Seems like a good time for an update report on the NORMA framework and tool project.
Since the March CTP, things have been rather quite on these boards (though I expect quite busy at Neumont). I've also noted a good deal of NORMA and ORM 2 related posts on the information_modeling groups.yahoo.com site/list. My guess is that both the ...
I just started a new project with NORMA, which seems to be a really great tool. However, for this project I need to develop an extension and couldn't find information how to start. I'd like to extend the fact type functionality with additional classifications such as sensed fact type, static fact type, profiled fact type, etc. Beside the ...
Please look at EasyObjects too.
At some point, someone had mentioned that NHibernate (as well as other mapping frameworks), were being considered in future plans for the NORMA tool. At a recent developers meeting in my area, a presentation on NHibernate demonstrated some of the useful features of this framework. One of the developers in attendance mentioned a code ...
