  • Re: CML (context modelling language)

    Thanks. I downloaded the paper from ftp://ftp.cc.gatech.edu/pub/gvu/tr/1999/99-22.pdf After reading the paper several times I don't feel I'm any closer to understanding what the authors are trying to say. As I see it, all applications use the sequence: input>process>output  and what the authors are calling "context" ...

  • Re: CML (context modelling language)

    Thanks for the clarification. I read the Henriksen paper some years ago.The paper uses the term "context aware" but neither the paper nor the references provide a usable definition of the term. The diagrams in the paper are just informal sketches. Thus, I'd call the paper "confusing" rather than "good".

  • Re: Model Page - option to create a new file

    Hi Marc, Thanks for your comprehensive explanation. I have asked Terry & Matt to comment. One thing that stands out from your post is the idea of tables with 250 columns. Whilst in your case, there may be a good reason for 250 column tables, in general, I have found that this a symptom of a schema design that has not been properly thought ...

  • Re: Model Page - option to create a new file

     Hi Marc, I'm fairly sure that each .orm file is stored as a single xml file - regardless of how big the .orm file is or how many pages are used to display it on the drawing surface. So one solution is to save the model before you add another page and then save the new model with a different name - a crude "versioning" ...
