  • RE: The specified invariant name is not supported

    Jeez, lousy error message. Sorry. We currently support two DataProvider names: System.Data.SqlClient and MySql.Data.MySqlClient Other connection types are not currently supported. Please feel free to code providers for other connection types:) The Tools\DatabaseImport project is the place to add them, with the provide mappings in the ...

  • RE: separating tables

    1) IsPersonal will eventually change some of the verbalization patterns to use 'who' instead of 'that'. For example, a Person EntityType might be marked with 'IsPersonal=true'. This will come into play more with advanced verbalizations that Terry promises to write specs for after his book is done. You should see new verbalizations coming on line ...

  • RE: Holliday wishes for the nORMa team

    Thanks, Brian We'll pick up the CTP pace again in late February. You'll see incremental improvements in the DDL generation, new code generators, improved name generation (explicit column and table abbreviations will be supported), and the usual gradual quality bar improvements. You will also see some additional changes that correspond to ORM2 ...
  • RE: plix to nettiers generation, status / how to?

    The submitted code is not yet in a useable state, but I've continued the work on my machine and am much further along with the DataAccessLayer and EntityLayer. What needs to happen before you get at least a minimal implementation: 1) The DataAccessLayer and Entity layer are almost complete, but not checked in. I've done all of the initial work ...
  • RE: Keyboard Shortcuts

    I have no disagreements in principle with this discussion at all. There are some practical issues with using single keystrokes. For example, if an ObjectType is selected, typing 'N' will rename it to 'N'. Visual studio, however, is quite good at defining double (and I believe even triple) key commands. Some common ones are Ctrl-K,Ctrl-D (type by ...
  • RE: Why an Expanded Reference Mode for Values?

    You do have a point, which could also be extended to say that the property should not be offered if there is no reference mode. On the other hand, to extend your scenario, if you now set 'IsValueType' to False, the RefMode property will appear and you can set the RefMode property, which will then appear in expanded form. Basically, ...
  • June 2007 CTP ('b' release)

    I can't believe I just wrote that title, but I couldn't let this one slide. The 'a' release introduced a problem that prevented external constraints from dropping onto the diagram. The constraints were added to the model, and could be subsequently dropped onto the diagram from the Model Browser, but this was not obvious and was clearly a major ...
  • RE: June 2007 CTP ('a' release)

    The main new shortcut is A has/is of B is supported for entering binary reverse readings along with the forward reading. Also, after Ctrl-Enter, you'll see the A listed back on its own, ready to accept another FactType. Operations such as changing arity on a selected FactType should be much smoother, and preservation of existing constraints should ...
  • RE: Reference Mode or Reference Scheme?

    Reference modes provide a shorthand notation for an extremely common pattern. With a shorthand notation not all of the information is displayed on the diagram. This is no different from the Visio solution and other solutions where some of the reference mode details (separator, etc) are not clearly displayed on the diagram. Similarly, ORM diagrams ...
  • June 2007 CTP ('a' release)

    I've posted a file release of the June 2007 CTP to address a setup issue that stopped the New Fact Editor from showing. As noted in the 'June 2007 CTP' post thread, you should now get both old and new Fact Editor windows. The only other significant change is that the Verbalization Window and Generated Report now respect the current ...
