  • Re: Subset constraint terminology

    Hi Matt, I think the adjective 'simple' always needs to be taken in the context of the thing it is describing. In math terms, a 'simple multiplication problem' and a 'simple multi-variable definite integration problem' set significantly different bars for the meaning of simple. I think you can take Terry's use of ...

  • Re: Subset constraint terminology

    Hi Matt, I don't think it is understood that an unprefixed 'subset constraint' means one role per tuple. I've used the terms 'single-column', 'basic', 'simple', etc. Although the NORMA UI presents rows and columns, technically each row (tuple) is an argument to the comparison operation, the argument length ...

  • Re: Importing older models

    Hi Rick, The .imo files have an undocumented binary file format. I do not have documentation on the file format, the import code from VEA, or information on how to write a VisualModeler add-in, so there is very little I can do to remedy this situation. The Orthogonal Toolbox add-in is also posted ...
  • Re: Displaying (syntactic) data type in verbalization of model

    Hi Karl, I'll just add it in, it shouldn't be hard. If it is OK, I'll just show the numbers instead of text with them. There are currently two fields (length and scale) that are basically placeholders and appear with different names in the properties window (length becomes precision for Money and Decimal types). Translating ...
  • Re: Fact Type Names

    Hi Jack, Thanks for the explanation. What should work here is modification of the name generator settings in the ORM Model Browser (Name Generation Defaults/Relational Names). While most of the settings here make a difference, it doesn't look like the name-shortening settings are even looked at by the name generators ...

  • Re: Fact Type Names

    Hi Jack, Fact type names are generated based on the default reading for the fact type. The reading editor tool window lets you prioritize reading orders and readings, which can change the default reading. If you see an editable fact type name it is because the fact type is explicitly or implicitly objectified. Fact types are implicitly ...

  • Re: Fact Model Data Extraction

    Hi Pedro, Sorry, I tested this project on a 32-bit machine. It looks like I didn't set the platform target to 32-bit, which would give you this result running on a 64-bit OS. Click on the project node in the Solution Explorer window (second node, right below the one that says 'Solution...').Right click and choose Properties (or ...

  • Re: Fact Model Data Extraction

    Hi Pedro, If you want to play with the XML I'd recommend doing it through XSLT and plugging in a generator, not through code. The two approaches offer much different experiences. You don't need XML at all for the model loader. In fact, it turns out there's a ModelLoader.Load(string fileName) overload that just takes the file name. ...

  • Re: Fact Model Data Extraction

    Hello Pedro, You will need a C# project for a console or forms app (not a web application) that references the two libraries I mentioned before (the modeling SDK dll from Microsoft and the NORMA core dll). You'll probably want to lock the project platform to 32-bit instead of 'Any CPU' (the NORMA Dll itself handles any CPU, but some ...

  • Re: Is it possible to generate java class source from VS2010/Norma?

    Unfortunately, we don't currently have a Java code generator from NORMA. Although a Java class would not work directly in a Visual Studio project, there is no theoretical reason that NORMA couldn't generate one. The structure of the classes would be very similar to the .NET classes--at least those spit by the PLiX Implementation generator, ...
