  • 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: 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, ...

  • Re: Subset/equality constraint using a subtype connector bug

    Hi Karl, The information on this feature is linked in the January 2013 section of the readme under the title Extended Subtyping Constraint Combinations. The behavior is as expected: you can place a subset from a subtyping line to a role on a direct or indirect supertype, but not the other direction. Exclusion is also allowed, but not ...

  • Re: Simple exclusion constraint and Exclusive or constraint

    Trying these constraints in the NORMA tool on your own model can also be very instructive. You can practice using them against a domain you're familiar with, look at the verbalizations, try different constraint patterns, etc. I believe part of the confusion here is that an Xor constraint is two constraints, the inclusive-or and the exclusion. ...
