Run the installer. This section will guide you through creating the base TimeTracker solution. These are the same steps you would follow when you are starting your own application.
Please note, the TimeTracker completed sample is available at the top of this article. Couple of tips before we start: Please follow the instructions in this tutorial very carefully and precisely. Do not take any shortcuts, as doing so will only waste your time. There is a reason for every step in the tutorial. You will not find any fluff here!
It is recommended to use the latest version of Firefox or Internet Explorer to read this tutorial. Create the Solution Run Visual Studio Select File New Project. Name the solution Northwind. Click OK. Accept the default project name of Northwind. TimeTracker, and click Next. Accept the default common project name of Northwind. Common, and click Next. Accept the default core project name of Northwind. Core, and click Next. Accept the default checked Create schema export project option and the default project name of Northwind.
SchemaExport, and click Next. Check the Configure web project box and accept the default project name of Northwind. Check the Add membership support box and click Next. Accept the default web common project name of Northwind. Verify that your project settings look like the screenshot below, and click Next to run the wizard. Your solution is now configured for use with AndroMDA.
Here is a list of what was created for you: mda directory: AndroMDA configuration files and an empty model. Because we checked membership support, basic user and roles entities were added automatically.
Web: Web site with NHibernate support. Common: Common project. This is where AndroMDA generates value objects and enumerations. Core: Core project. SchemaExport: A console application that will generate the database schema from your model. It can optionally export the schema to a running database. Common: Project for classes and controls the web site will use.
Because we checked membership support, an ASP. NET 2. MagicDraw will open and it will automatically load the model that was generated by the add-in. An initial package structure was created by the add-in using the name of the solution you selected. Additionally, a User entity and some supporting classes were created and added to the model because the membership support option was selected.
Leave MagicDraw open for now, as we will be adding to the model. Expand your local server or connect to your local server Right click the Databases folder and select Create new database. We will create an entity called Timecard that will represent a timecard in the application. We will associate it with the User object, which will be the person that submitted the timecard. Our finished entity diagram will look like this: Note that we have marked the Timecard class with a stereotype of Entity.
Stereotypes determine what pattern of code AndroMDA will generate for a model element. More specifically, they determine which AndroMDA code generation templates will be triggered. Also note that we have marked the attributes to be of type Date and String. These are not.
NET types, but rather, in model driven architecture, the model is kept independent of technology and hence all model elements are defined in terms of platform independent types. So Date and String in this context are platform independent types. When we run AndroMDA to generate code, it will translate platform independent types into platform dependent types such as System.
String and System. String, which is the Java equivalent of System. As you can see, a key advantage of the model driven approach is that your investment in the business models is preserved even as technologies come and go. Set the name of the diagram to Entity Diagram and click OK. Click the Class tool in the toolbar and make a new class on the diagram surface.
Double click on the class, name it Timecard, and add the Entity stereotype to it. Right click on the TimecardVO object and select Insert new attribute. Add these public attributes to the class: startDate of type Date.
Introduction to Model Driven Development with AndroMDA (Part 2)
This tutorial serves as a gentle introduction to the power of AndroMDA. We will show you step-by-step how to set up your development environment and build your first Java application. Instead of mechanically going through a series of steps, we will focus on ideas and concepts. Armed with this knowledge, you will be ready to take on real world challenges. Please set aside half a day of quality, uninterrupted time to learn AndroMDA, as there is lot to learn. Then, brew a good cup of coffee and immerse yourself in the wonderful world of Model Driven Architecture.
