  • Re: Importing older models

    Hi Rick, The .imo files have an undocumented binary file format. I do not have documentation on the file format, the import code from VEA, or information on how to write a VisualModeler add-in, so there is very little I can do to remedy this situation. The Orthogonal Toolbox add-in is also posted ...
  • Re: Displaying (syntactic) data type in verbalization of model

    Hi Karl, I&#39;ll just add it in, it shouldn&#39;t be hard. If it is OK, I&#39;ll just show the numbers instead of text with them. There are currently two fields (length and scale) that are basically placeholders and appear with different names in the properties window (length becomes precision&nbsp;for Money and Decimal types). Translating ...
  • Re: Fact Type Names

    Hi Jack, Thanks for the explanation. What should work here is modification of the name generator settings in the ORM Model Browser (Name Generation Defaults/Relational Names). While most of the settings here make a difference, it doesn&#39;t look like the name-shortening settings are even looked at by the name generators ...

  • Re: Fact Type Names

    Hi Jack, Fact type names are generated based on the default reading for the fact type. The reading editor tool window lets you prioritize reading orders and readings, which can change the default reading. If you see an editable fact type name it is because the fact type is explicitly or implicitly objectified. Fact types are implicitly ...

  • Re: Is it possible to generate java class source from VS2010/Norma?

    Unfortunately, we don&#39;t currently have a Java code generator from NORMA. Although a Java class would not work directly in a Visual Studio project, there is no theoretical reason that NORMA couldn&#39;t generate one. The structure of the classes would be very similar to the .NET classes--at least those spit by the PLiX Implementation generator, ...

  • Re: Why incompatible types at subset contraints?

    Hi Jacob, Good discussion. &nbsp; [quote user=&quot;jacobvos&quot;]First of all: Don&#39;t learn from my posts that DEMO tells what to do with an ORM model. I try to capture my interpretation of DEMO in an ORM model. That might be wrong.[/quote] Please note that I put a big If&nbsp;at the beginning of my sentence regarding application of the ...

  • Re: Why incompatible types at subset contraints?

    Hi Jacob, The sample population editor is designed to allow you to add objects without leaving the fact types that use them. Basically, the in-cell expansion offered in the PerformedQualityTest has been promised sample population editor layout is equivalent to a row in the QualityTest has been performed&nbsp;editor layout. If you look at the ...

  • Re: Why incompatible types at subset contraints?

    Hi Jacob, The issue here is that the objectification of &#39;QualityTest has been performed&#39; and QualityTest itself are different object types, so they are not directly compatible. The general way to approach this is as I show in the attached diagram, which is to pulled out the required link fact type (select the objectified fact type in the ...

  • Re: Cannot execute the VS command [File > New > Object-Role Modeling File]

    Hi David, This generally happens when you don&#39;t install enough of Visual Studio for NORMA to run. You need to install at least one of the VB.NET or C# language packages. The VirtualTreeGrid control installs with Standard or higher (Pro, etc.) versions. If you can see the Class View tool window or the Object Browser then this dll is properly ...

  • Re: Objectification in the latest NORMA update

    Hi Gordon, I&#39;ll try a further explanation, both on the background and the implementation. When a fact type is objectified in ORM an implicit relationship is created for that objectification between each of the role players of the objectified fact type and the objectifying entity type. NORMA automatically creates these fact types&nbsp;(known ...
