Subject [jira] Commented: (CAY-155) More object-centric modeling tool
Date Thu, 26 Mar 2009 22:11:50 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CAY-155?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12689696#action_12689696
] 

Ari Maniatis commented on CAY-155:
----------------------------------

Perhaps a simpler option is to have a checkbox in preferences

[ ] keep DBEntities synchronised to ObjEntities

However, I don't quite understand why this is that helpful, since a user needs to be aware
of what is going on, particularly when they are editing a model which has already been in
use for some time. 6 people voted for this task: could you comment as to whether you voted
for the "UML diagram" part or this first 'autocreate DBEntities' part.

> For DB-unaware users that want to *CREATE* a new DB and its object model, the GUI modeling
tool sould let the user to model just ObjEntities not DbEntities, automatically creating DB
entities and relationships as needed.
> The best will be having a GUI that lets user to manipulate UML-like objects and relations
(maybe using open source graph libraries like JGraph or Piccolo for graphics): ObjEntities
can be created, class hierarchies and relationships defined drawing lines between ObjEntities
and so on.
