  • Re: Broken ORMGeneratorSettings in Visual Studio 2019

    You need to make sure you're working in a .NET Framework project to run the custom tool, not .NET Standard or .NET Core. The generator isn't currently supported in the other project types. If you see 'Dependencies' in the solution explorer then you're not in the right project type. While I'd like to have this running there ...

  • Re: NORMA for Visual Studio 2022 (and future versions)

    It took a long time (and some pestering) for Microsoft to get back to me and then another chunk of time to find the issue, but we got it. A small error in a build script copied the wrong PLiX.vsix file into the 64-bit version. The site was catching what the VSIX compiler and the VS installer both missed: the identifier of the embedded package did ...
  • Re: NORMA for Visual Studio 2022 (and future versions)

    Quick update: The existing and PerUser versions were updated in the Marketplace for VS2019 and VS2017. Unfortunately the correspond install files for VS2022 are currently being rejected by the marketplace site with a totally generic error message. I have absolutely no idea what the problem is.  I opened a ticket with Microsoft last week ...
  • Re: NORMA for Visual Studio 2022 (and future versions)

    Hello, I'm very close to an official VS2022 version (digitally signed and ready to post to the Visual Studio store). You can see the latest commit at https://github.com/ormsolutions/NORMA. Unfortunately there is always something that goes wrong between versions, especially with the 64-bit change for VS2022. The normal registration for ...
  • Re: Reverse Engineering from PostgreSQL/ODBC

    Hello Tye,  So, the difficulty on merging these files is that either a large part of these files (x.orm) or all (x.dcil.xml, x.ddil.xml) are generated, which makes merging difficult. The generated sections of .orm files also have non-stable identifiers, which makes them exceedingly difficult to merge. It doesn't really matter if the ...
  • Re: Multiple Schemas

    Hi Pete, A lot of the limitations here are due to the underlying technology that NORMA is built on. The Microsoft Modeling Framework (formerly DSL tools) is an in-memory representation of the data with no native integration with external data sources (either other DSL Store objects or external databases). This means that any live coordination ...
  • Re: Visual Studio 2015 Community "or above"?

  • Re: Verbalizations in Constraint Validation Report don't match ORM Verbalization Browser

    Hi Steve, Please let me solve the mystery for you. There are not two verbalization engines, there is only one. The report generator simply uses a different set of 'verbalization snippets' to produce different styling for the report. Verbalization snippets are simply format strings with replacement fields, and all of the NORMA ...

  • Re: NORMA reverse engine question

    There is no way to get a reliable reading for a fact type derived from a database column. Therefore, after import, you will generally be visiting each of the imported fact types to clean up the associated readings. Selecting this option places a model validation error on each reading created during import, effectively giving you a task list for ...

  • Re: Non Visual Studio version of Norma

    Hi Hugh, NORMA is tightly integrated with the DSL Tools framework in Visual Studio. At the time the project was started (almost a decade ago) we also looked at web-based frameworks (there was no chance, the browsers simply weren't ready yet) and EMF in Eclipse. The big downfall on EMF was that it lacked the 'deleting' notification, ...
