  • Re: Validation of a physical model against a conceptual model

    Ken, thanks for your reply. I did manage a couple reverse engineerings of physical dbs using VEA, and it seemed to do an OK job at it. The issue comes in the fact that often the physical model is far removed from the original intent conceptually. This happens usually because there is a lack of a conceptual model, poor data modeling skills, changes ...

  • Re: Validation of a physical model against a conceptual model

    You mention VEA. Did you ever get around to using the reverse engineering feature in VEA? It would be nice to validate against SQL Queries but, as I see it, the rubber meets the road when you allow non-technical domain experts to see the "real meaning" of the data model from which their physical database is constructed.  It seems ...

  • Validation of a physical model against a conceptual model

    I've been working a little on the idea of an application called SchemaCop.. which is to be for physical database models what the .NET application FxCop is for the .NET framework. I think anyone who has experienced working with an existing data model in the majority of cases will face models that lack normalization, referential integrity, and ...

  • Re: Marking a post/reply as answer

    Admin, Looks like the post marking system is working, and I've marked several posts (in threads I started), as answered.  I think the arrangement should work for most forums here, but more so where specific questions are asked (NORMA - Technical, for example).  A forum like "Issues" may be better left to ...

    Hi Victor, I'm glad that we have come to an amicable agreement based on understanding. Thanks for your patience. Regarding "advertising" - Yes, I could quite easily switch on advertising and get a little bit of income. The reason that I don't do such things has to do with my purpose for creating, maintaining and ...

    Hi Ken, Okay, okay. I concede. In another life I would have been a lawyer. I certainly have enough paranoia to ask the probing questions! You do well to to see me for what I am, harmless but shrewd. Certainly I get to know you this way and visa versa. That's a shame about the the effort required. That's pretty harsh. To be honest, it ...

  • Re: Richmond

    Hi Victor, Oh dear - you keep finding the wrong end of a stick that isn't there. I was planning to consolidate the forums long before you made your request about Richmond so there is no need for you to feel guilty about that. There is nothing that prevents people from making posts about any tool in the "other tools" ...

  • Re: Richmond

    Sure I get it Ken. You just deleted something like 3 forums, so going from what you said, you now have space to start a new forum. If Richmond doesn't get the traffic, then you delete it. Get it!! I didn't expect you to delete the other forums, just because of my request. Now they are gone too. As a customer, I was kinda hoping they ...

  • Re: Richmond

    Victor, If you had read my earlier post carefully you would see that the decision was based on traffic. None of the topics that are now in "other tools" have any traffic. I have also previously explained to you that my approach is also influenced by a policy of "let the market decide". No traffic = No forum - Get ...

    Hi Ken, Your proposal was to leave nORMa at the top of the Tools Forum, and have 'Other' as alternative. I accepted that. This morning, when I log in, I find nORMa and COGNiam, and Other. Is it at all possible that there is a natural bias towards these two software packages, that is now reflected in the site? Of course, I agree that ...
