Jumpstart your SOA Infrastructure with Data Models
The backbone of any SOA implementation requires defining, building, and managing XML schemas. Often times, this is done with very little visibility of the back end databases which ultimately results in a huge chasm between the data represented in the service bus and what is persisted in the database. This session shows you how to reverse that trend and drive XML schemas from your data models so they’re built with the same standards as your databases.

Integrating Advanced Model Lifecycle Management with the Enterprise Repository & MS SharePoint
In large environments, the integration of data modeling into the entire life cycle is important. The intellectual knowledge that is invested in well designed data models is not simply of use by database developers. When enterprise, conceptual, and logical data models are used in an effective information management framework, business users and technical users can leverage the information contained within them.

Comparing Generalized and Detailed Approaches to Data Modeling
Some data modelers prefer large models with many, highly detailed entities. Others prefer small models with a handful of highly generalized entities. Each approach has merit, but combining them in a best-of-both-worlds approach is so difficult, most modelers give up and declare themselves to be in one camp or the other. In this presentation, Burton Group Senior Analyst catalogs the relative merits of the two approaches and describes why one approach is highly desirable, but the other approach is absolutely indispensible.

Delphi

Writing Unit Tests for SQL Databases using Delphi
Writing unit tests for client/server applications accessing a database on a SQL server is more complex than writing tests for stand-alone applications due to the fact that the resulting state of the system is not a value returned by every function, but it is stored in the database and must be retrieved in a more complex way. Even if Delphi does not ship with a tool specifically designed to test SQL databases, with some coding work it is possible to use DUnit framework to write, not only tests for classes working on the DB, but also for stored procedures on the server. It is also possible to extend DUnit so that DB developers and testers can effectively write tests without the need for deepening their knowledge of Delphi syntax and class libraries, focusing on their main task of writing SQL code.

Working with Data Using ADO.NET
Microsoft documentation for ADO.NET 2.0 (and later versions) emphasizes the use of data source objects for data access. These objects, however, hide the real worker classes in ADO.NET, including connections, commands, data readers, command builders, and data tables. This presentation discusses the roles of these important classes and demonstrates how to use them directly in your .NET applications.
