Hi, I'm the author of schemester - http://www.schemester.com . It's a neat
little tool, but now a chore to work on... for starters it's not written in
Java :(

I would be very interested in embracing open source and redirecting my
efforts towards this project.

Perhaps there is a way that DTP can leverage this effort to specialize data
modeling components? It is certainly something to discuss. Please let me
know your thoughts around this and how you would like to proceed.

Hi John,

A graphical modelling tool would be an excellent addition to the DTP.
Re-using developments in the same space is certainly the way to go, so
what Borland do would most definitely be of interest. Where the link to
the DTP comes in is, as you say, the specialisation of such tools for
the database, which would build on the DTP foundation APIs.

My interest is not solely in visual modelling. Once you regard your
database as a kind of constrained model then you can make use of the
techniques common place in that arena, for example design patterns and
refactoring. For more on this see Scott Ambler's website
http://www.agiledata.org. There is a lot of scope here for creating
tools to perform such techniques. The details of how such tools would
work, especially in a vendor neutral environment, I have not worked out
but it would be a very interesting exercise. For example the DTP ETL API
could be employed in certain refactorings.

From the perspective of creating other practical tools to aid the
database developer the following would be of interest:
* Automated code reviewing, something akin to checkstyle.
* Automated design analysis, something akin to jdepend.
* Text based repository for database objects. Something that would be
used for source control and incremental deployment.

On how to proceed I am open to suggestions. I am interested in
co-developing both ideas and code.

regards,
Martyn

Martyn,

Your ideas sound very interesting, and I think something around this area
would be a great addition to DTP. You've provided a fair amount of
description in this thread: would you be open to working with me on a
(sub)project proposal that we could add to the existing DTP proposal online?
This would allow for greater community feedback and (we hope :-) ) offers
for additional collaboration.

>>>Hi John,
>>>
>>>A graphical modelling tool would be an excellent addition to the DTP.
>>>Re-using developments in the same space is certainly the way to go, so
>>>what Borland do would most definitely be of interest. Where the link to
>>>the DTP comes in is, as you say, the specialisation of such tools for the
>>>database, which would build on the DTP foundation APIs.
>>>
>>>My interest is not solely in visual modelling. Once you regard your
>>>database as a kind of constrained model then you can make use of the
>>>techniques common place in that arena, for example design patterns and
>>>refactoring. For more on this see Scott Ambler's website
>>>http://www.agiledata.org There is a lot of scope here for creating tools
>>>to perform such techniques. The details of how such tools would work,
>>>especially in a vendor neutral environment, I have not worked out but it
>>>would be a very interesting exercise. For example the DTP ETL API could
>>>be employed in certain refactorings.
>>>
>>>From the perspective of creating other practical tools to aid the
>>>database developer the following would be of interest:
>>>* Automated code reviewing, something akin to checkstyle.
>>>* Automated design analysis, something akin to jdepend.
>>>* Text based repository for database objects. Something that would be
>>>used for source control and incremental deployment.
>>>
>>>On how to proceed I am open to suggestions. I am interested in
>>>co-developing both ideas and code.
>>>
>>>regards,
