Hi Kim, Here are some suggestions:
Make sure that everyone understands that when you create a object-role model, what you are doing is :
1: Asserting that some facts are true and then modeling the common structures as a fact type.
2: Limiting the permissible populations of the fact types by adding constraints (also ...
"I was wondering if it is possible to reverse engineer an existing MySQL database to an ORM 2 model? Is this possible? If yes, is there a document/ tutorial about it?"
Yes - you can reverse engineer MySQL into ORM2. There are two methods that come to mind:
1: Directly into NORMA
Start NORMA using the DB Import ...
Thanks for your questions.
I have never used Visual OWL so I will need time to look into it.
Regarding question 5, my University of Liverpool MSc Dissertation has never been published.
However, I plan to include it with the book that I am writing - which I estimate will be published in mid 2016.
The dissertation document ...
Hi Hugh,I agree with you about the value of ORM. However, as you may know, NORMA is Visual Studio extension and uses many of the facilities built into Visual Studio.I'm fairly sure that the effort required to port NORMA to another platform would be "substantial" and I don't know of any plans to do ...
The NORMA tool does not use underlining technique shown in Chapter 11.
As Terry said, if you are using NORMA and you have the relational extension feature switched on, then a relational schema appears on a separate page. You can see all of the keys in the relational schema.
Here is an example from part of the "Talent" model that ...
Hi Terry,I added your diagram.
The procedure is to use the "Options" tab and the "File
attachment add/.update". CheersKen
Thanks for the alert.
I have mentioned this to Terry & Matt so one of them will probably respond soon.
You can now download the new version of NORMA for Visual Studio 2015 from the Library.
Yes - I expect NORMA for Visual Studio 2015 to be published "soon".
I have been testing the pre-release version on a Windows 7 desktop and a Windows 10 tablet.
Depends on Matt giving it a final polish.
If you want to run it on a tablet then you will need a keyboard and a mouse.(bluetooth variety)
Just to clarify this point. The concepts of OR and XOR are from logic.
In the diagram, the blue rectangles represent "True" (i.e. "This is an A" or "This is a B")
The red rectangles represent "False".
This makes it clear that the XOR of two items means that only one of the items may be present.
As the ...
