Rosario – Create your own Progression Provider

What Progression Providers? I mean those commands in the Architecture Explorer. For example the “Insert into Active Diagram” command which generates a sequence diagram from the selected method or the “Save as XPS…”. And just because Visual Studio is extensible from top to bottom it should be easy to make your own commands.  Why..? Why would you want to create your own Progression provider?  For example, you could make your own “Import from strange format…” or “Export Model to strange format…” commands, XMI for example. I want a command “Generate TestCase…” for this solution Rosario Video - Generate TestCases from ActivityDiagram and I also thinking of changing GAX/GAT ... [More]

At Cambridge for Code Generation 2008

Just arrived in beautiful Cambridge for three days of talking about “Code Generation”. The main players in the field of model driven development will be present at this event. So, it’s going to be interesting. I attended this event past year and really liked it. For those who don’t follow this blog that long. There are some pictures on flickr and I also recorded these video’s [below] during the panel discussions [bad quality, but I think you will get the idea] [Panel members were Tony Clark (Xactium), Steve Cook (Microsoft), Matthew Fowler (NT/e), Allan Kennedy (Kennedy Carter) and Juha-Pekka Tolvanen (Metacase).] On the code generation site you can find the full MP3’s of these discu...

Blogging 1.0 is really out-dated…I Changed to Blogging 2.0

Triggered by a post from You can spot those living in Blogging 1.0 as they're the ones railing about keeping all their comments on their blog, and they're the ones saying that FriendFeed or Twitter have absolutely no value, and complaining about the noise. [Blogging 2.0 Causing Friction With 1.0 Bloggers] My posts now live in all kind of different places where people can add comments. For example Hyves, Facebook, Twitter, FriendFeed and some more “social” networks. But, just subscribing to all kind of networks, digg’s, social bookmarks sites and let people comment from there isn’t really 2.0… I also changed my blog-engine to use Silverlight. It wasn’t in my...

TechEd Keynote Video

No need to go to conferences anymore… ;-) here is the video [asx] Team Archiitect with Brian starts at minute 43. As I wrote in this post: “I'm curious what he really said…” I can say now, after I watched the complete keynote… he did’nt talk about UML in relation to Oslo. Not that important, just want to be sure… small update from RedmondDeveloper In a the Q&A portion, a developer asked Gates about the UML modeling standards in Visual Studio. He said in part: "We'll have additional support for UML in Visual Studio 10 for the specific modeling tools that are there. Then as we move forward and take the modeling platform to the next layer, we'll get even more ability for you ... [More]

TechEd News - UML on tap in Oslo SOA modeler

Not that I'm at the TechEd US, but just read this article "Outgoing Bill Gates says UML on tap in Oslo SOA modeler". Two quotes: Microsoft will incorporate UML as part of its effort to create its Oslo unified modeling environment for SOA, Chairman Bill Gates told attendees at TechEd 2008 for Developers in Orlando, Fla. The company also confirmed that it expected the first Oslo Community Technology Preview (CTP) would be released at the PDC in September. Gates also disclosed that UML will be part of Visual Studio 10. The reappearance of the general-purpose industry standard UML for modeling in the flagship products in Microsoft's developer line comes after several years of emphasis on speci... [More]
