Sorry if this has been asked before
Just starting to do some minor ORM work with nORMa, previous Visio user.
I dont care very much for "uniqueifiers" but unfortunetly they are sometimes necessary. Does nORMa support this datatype, I can't find it anywhere.
Also I have tried to get the DDL generation to produce ...
Your explaination of 'objectified' FactType, verbalized as FactType seems reasonable. Adding verbalization for OFT's can only help. I realize that an OFT is just a conceptual device; but that's the name of the game here.
Take a look at the thread on other problems with May drop, when you have a ...
It just isn't done. This was next on my list, after some name generation issues and fixing the unary binarization pattern. This is the easiest of the blatantly undone sample population issues--as has been noted in this thread, the identifier from the supertype is not recognized.
The other major undones for entering sample population ...
This was eventually "fixed" by launching VS2008 as an Administrator on Pat's machine. We have not managed to reproduce this problem on other boxes, but would like to know if it happens for others as well. The weird thing is that the 'PropertiesEditor' property, which is appearing correctly, is displayed using the same ...
Wow, ancient bug (Dec 2005), nobody noticed. Basically, the role player for the role opposite the internal constraint was being verbalized instead the associated 'PreferredIdentifierFor' relationship. I've fixed the bogus verbalization in changeset 1288, added a small indent to the 'This association...', and added the same ...
I have unlocked my original post (my mistake). It would help to keep the website more navigable if you repost as a reply to my original post.
On the UoD - A simple definition of TUD is "a set of facts that define objects playing roles."
I'll comment on your other points after you move your post.
I second that. That function is not user friendly the way it is. I think your suggestion is a good one.
I really like nORMa, but if there is a great student at Neumont who is interested in ergonomics/user friendliness, and a receptive staff member to give extraordinary credit for design over functionality, then please go for it. We need ...
I replicated the problem in a new project/model/diagram using the same system (VS 2005-Standard on WS 2008) - the same behavior.
I just did a fresh install of Plix and nORMa for VS 2008 - 4/2008 drop on a different box (VS 2008 Pro, on Vista Ult 32bit). I created another new project/model/diagram from scratch, and see the ...
Have you considered adding an option to set a default datatype length? This would be useful where target DBMS requires a length be set. The added default datatype option is very helpful; this would just extend the utility.
Questions on verbalization of objectified predicate
Below is a nORMa May 08 drop model fragment.
One question concerns the 3rd line of verbalization:
Employee was born on Date.
Each Employee was born on at most one Date.
This association with Employee provides the preferred identification scheme for Date.
It is possible that more than ...
