  • Re: Support for Visual Studio 2010

    YOU HAVE CROSS-MODEL DRAG-DROP???!!?!?!?!! That&#39;s a very popular feature request among students.
  • Re: Natural human input for model development?

    Ken, You&#39;re absolutely right that modeling specialists are going to use the most efficient methods possible to create their schema. The diagram really is a side-effect of the underlying logic, and outside of our &quot;club&quot; the pictures do nothing to help people understand the domain. That being said... I see great value in ...

  • Re: Natural human input for model development?

    When we were first developing NORMA at Neumont, tablet PCs were just starting to come about. A drawing surface was definitely on the &quot;wouldn&#39;t that be awesome?&quot; list, but it was pretty low on the priorities. I tend to model subsets of the domain in sequence rather than going through the entire CSDP once for the whole schema. While ...

  • Re: In which step should artificial identities (IDs) be introduced if not mentioned by domain experts?

    I can&#39;t answer the question for everyone, but in my personal work I tend to introduce artificial identifiers almost immediately. When I&#39;m modeling I like to make everything &quot;work&quot; as much as possible as it&#39;s being created. This behavior is HEAVILY influenced by NORMA, since it gives red error messages if your entity types ...

  • Re: Support for Visual Studio 2010

    My guess is the DSL model tools made some significant changes that are breaking the code generation. Either that, or there&#39;s been a gopher infestation in the back yard. I might not be up to speed on the project any more, but I&#39;m pretty handy with a .22! Let me know if there&#39;s anything I can do to help out.
  • Re: Support for Visual Studio 2010

    Thanks, Matt! I certainly understand how you need money to feed the family, at least until the first crop starts coming in. ;-) In the meantime I&#39;ll do like Jeremy does and just run it from a virtual machine. Thank you for the rapid response, and for all the hard work you continue to put in to NORMA. -- Tyler p.s. Lucky!! Our peach and ...
  • Re: Support for Visual Studio 2010

    So I did a rather silly thing yesterday... I installed VS2010 and deleted &#39;08, then discovered that NORMA isn&#39;t working for &#39;10 yet! Oops... Kind of a rookie mistake for someone who&#39;s teaching the class this quarter! Matt, I know you&#39;re working hard on it. Is there a beta yet for a poor soul who doesn&#39;t want to reinstall ...
  • Re: Common Models

    I like your idea for the details document describing the model, and posted one for my talent agency model. Since I&#39;m not used to posting my writing in a public forum (aside from Facebook updates), the style is probably lacking polish. Don&#39;t be afraid to critique-- feedback is necessary for improvement. One of these days I may want to write ...

  • Talent Agency

    I just posted the Talent Agency model in the OSM section of the Library. The details document contains screen shots of all the pages, as well as the logical model and the SQL. The NORMA model is also available. I&#39;ll post other models as I create their respective documentation, but for now at least the ball is rolling. You&#39;ll notice that ...

  • Re: Open Source Models

    Oh, but didn&#39;t you know software development was rife with TLAs (Three-Letter Acronyms)? The blog could be interesting. My style is a bit rambling, so I may end up scaring off more people than it attracts. On the other hand, it would tend to make my posts shorter if I was putting the domain and development commentary somewhere else. I&#39;m ...
