  • Why extra tables in relational view if not declared independent?

     I have an ORM model (in 2013/12 version) where some items only play functional dependencies with other objects, yet in the relational view, the are shown in their own tables, even though they are not declared as independent.  In earlier versions of NORMA this did not happen.  Is there some way I can attach a file to a post so you ...

  • Error trying to run NORMA in VS2012.

    I downloaded and installed latest version of NORMA for VS2012. When I try to open in VS (file > new > file >ORM file, or Open and existing .orm file, I get the message shown in the attached .pdf file. Any ideas.

  • Latest version of Tutorials

  • Promoting and Selling ORM/FOM

    We need a forum topic on how to promote non-record-based data modeling schemes, such as ORM or FOM.  I remember that we had an extended discussion about this at the Portugal workshop (2007).  The question before us:  What is the vision for ORM/FOM and how can we make the world aware of this clearly superior scheme for capturing and ...

  • set up a new forum entitled "Educational Opportunities" or some such

    We need to list educational opportunities somewhere on this site.  Particularly, where to learn more about ORM.  I would like to post information about my online Advanced Database Design class which focuses on ORM.  It could, perhaps, be listed under workshops and conferences, although that title should probably be broadened to ...
