Transforming Models In my last post, "'Model' Is an Overloaded Word," I discussed several types of models which might be present in an MVC application. But I limited the discussion to models which are actually in the executable.  There may of course be additional models, such as ERDs, UML models, etc., which exist in the development environment, but are not actually part of the executable. It is often the case that we use software tools to transform these conceptual models into executable code of one form or ano...

"Model" Is an Overloaded Word Let's say you're writing a web application, and using the Model View Controller design.  Maybe you're using an out-of-the-box framework like the ASP.NET MVC Framework or Rails, or maybe you're using a different implementation; it doesn't matter.  It's pretty obvious that the "View" portion of the design is the part which provides a template for rendered HTML, and that the "Controller" portion of the design is the part which handles requests, specifying the general outline for what should be retu...

Tiburon/C++Builder - soon with live UML modeling C++Builder 2007 included code visualization, a one-way UML class diagram view, we called it code visualization.  In Project Tiburon, the next version of C++Builder will have live modeling.  This means you can work in the source code, work in the UML model, and move back and forth with full, live synchronization - "the code is the model, the model is the code". C++Builder will include support for the Class, Use Case, Sequence, Collaboration, Component, Deployment, Statechart, and Activity diag...

CodeGear + DatabaseGear - what will be possible I am over in Europe visiting with developers. Last week I was in Italy and Germany at the Delphi developer days in Piacenza (Marco Cantu) and Gunzburg (LegoLand). At the end of my CodeGear and Embarcadero update presentation, I covered some of things that could be possible in the future once the two companies come together and collaborate on the integration of products and technologies. What might be possible for next generation development environment functionality? SQL “insights” and “com...
