The following RoadMap shows modeling
tool tasks and enhancements organized into categories. After review, this
roadmap needs to be re-organized as a release schedule.
The following infrastructure and standards changes are
Batch test suite and test procedure documentation.
Initial set of tests based on PostgreSQL.
Coding standards (PMD code review)
I18N review and update.
Several areas of the tool need better integration with
The use of critics for the DB-UML language
Batch testing changes (contribute to ArgoUML)
Explorer extensions (contribute to ArgoUML)
Using source generation for SQL;
Ability to use add pop-up actions to the explorer
Additions to DB_UML language
The following additions are needed to the language:
check and assert methods
Provide DB-UML language elements for foreign databases and
foreign tables. A version of this exists for the ORDB database on an old
release of ArgoUML
Upgrade to ArgoUML 2.4.
Change terminology to foreign databases and foreign tables.
Provide catalog update support for foreign tables.
Table to Foreign Table transformation.
Warehouse Database Support
A language representation needs to be defined to model
OLAP entities. This should be done using the Common Warehouse Meta-Model.
Source generations should be provided to generate cube schemas from OLAP
models. The priority should be Mondrian schemas.
Transformations should also be provided to generate a star
schema model from a host schema model for constructing a warehouse database.
And transformations should also be provided to generate OLAP model from a star
schema model for constructing cube schemas.
