Query Microsoft.Uml2 for Class Data – Part 3

Part 2 of this series provided a query, when combined with the query from Part 1 that allows for the querying of UML class data from the SQL Server Modeling Services (SSMoS) UML Domain in a manner analogous to the class data typically displayed on a UML canvas, where the queries illustrated in this series…

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…

Querying Microsoft.Uml2 for Class Data – Part 1

I’ve decided to write a series of blog posts about working with the Microsoft.Uml2 domain, focusing specifically on the SQL Server Modeling Services Nov 2009 CTP Release 2 bits. It’s my goal to illustrate how to work with the UML domain for some of the most common scenarios we anticipate users to be running against…

Rule Archetype Pattern in SQL Modeling Services – Part 5

In this last post of the series, I’ll wrap up the loose ends around populating Contoso’s business rule repository with some Repository folders and sample data. I’ll also illustrate how to work with the Repository’s security model to lock down Contoso’s model so that users can see only certain segments of the model.   Adding…

Rule Archetype Pattern in SQL Modeling Services – Part 4

As I noted in Part 3 of this series, the subject of this post will be the work necessary to deploy Contoso’s ‘M’ business rule model to the Repository. Given that Contoso’s model implementation leverages the PatternApplication sample, there will be some additional work involved over doing a standard deploy using Visual Studio or using…

Will Modeling Services Work with My UML Tool?

<Author’s note>At the first of the year I started a sweet new gig working on the Modeling Services Repository, focusing on the UML Domain. My nefarious plan (let’s hope I succeed) is to bring the perspective of Big IT to the development Modeling Services features.</Author’s note>   As detailed on the UML Domain’s MSDN page,…

Rule Archetype Pattern in SQL Modeling Services – Part 3

As I mentioned last time, this subject of this post will be wiring up all the Modeling Services “architectural plumbing” to enable the Contoso business rule repository to enjoy all the goodness that Modeling Services has to offer. In the current Modeling Services CTP the Repository is implemented as a sophisticated SQL Server database. As…

Rule Archetype Pattern in SQL Modeling Services – Part 2

I realized that there was a significant oversight in my last post of this series – namely a specific hypothetical scenario that provides some context for this series. As I mentioned in my previous post, this hypothetical scenario was inspired by my post on System.Identity and the SQL Server Modeling Services Repository. The goal of…
