This is the second post in my series on thinking about SQL Server Developer Tools, Codename “Juneau” (SSDT). The intent of this series is to orient new SSDT users with the product by comparing SSDT’s program model to the program model of SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS). The following table, copied from the previous post…

Reducing System TCO with Modifiability Analysis

Even though I currently work as Program Manager I spent most of my career working as a software architect and architecture remains my first love. As such, I thought I would share a whitepaper I recently wrote for one of my Master’s degree classes. The subject is reducing the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of…

See SQL Server Developer Tools, Codename “Juneau” In Action

This blog has been dark for 7 months as I’ve been working on the next generation of Microsoft’s database development tools – SQL Server Developer Tools, Codename “Juneau” (which I will abbreviate as SSDT for obvious reasons ;-).

Querying Microsoft.Uml2 for Class Data – Part 2

In part 1 of this series I illustrated querying the Microsoft.Uml2 domain to get class data. In particular, I demonstrated how to query Microsoft.Uml2 in such a way to return the data in a manner that is conceptually similar to the way UML class data is displayed on the canvas of a UML authoring tool….

Sample Data for the System.Identity Domain

As I’ve written about previously, I’m a big fan of the possibilities of the System.Identity domain of SQL Server Modeling Services (SSMoS). System.Identity’s Party Model implementation elegantly addresses so many scenarios that modern enterprise LOB applications face. So, I’m pretty stoked that I was able to help out in bringing some sample data for System.Identity…
