    very nice, another implementation of perspective mdd aproach. What about situation around dsl tools. When we’ll have next CTP?

  2. SpoonsJTD says:

    Is anyone else put off by the price? $1500 for the version without UML, $2600 for the enterprise? Granted, I haven’t even used the trial, but it seems pricy for ORM, even if it is ‘drag and drop’. Any idea on how robust the UML implementation is? Full blown UML modelling through the VS DSL interfaces might be worth that pricetag.

  3. SpoonsJTD says:

    Ah, I just noticed, the UML isn’t built through DSL, it’s provided through Sparx’s EA, which is a great UML tool, but doesn’t have a very good VS integration story yet.

    I’ve tried to keep commercial information such as pricing out of these "built with DSL" blog entries, equally just quoting the blurb from the product sites, so its hopefully not seen as comment or endorsement, just pleasure that folks are using our stuff.

    Next CTP will come once there are public versions of the VS SDK for Orcas. NO announcements on timings or what it will contain yet.

    I think the tool is valueable as it provides not only modelling and O/R but also DnD UI Design and Database Schema Deployment and Upgrading which really makes it unique.

    PS: I think the picture is broken.
