[gmt-dev] Uml2Rdbms example in UMLX

Hi All

At MDAFA'2003, Wim Bast mentioned that there was a standard
example which all QVT submitters should attempt. It turns out
to be our favourite UML to RDBMS posed in a more definitive way.

I finally got round to digging it out and doing it in UMLX.
The result is attached. I was pleased to discover that I needed
to introduce no new systax or resolve new semantics. Unfortuanbtely
the mailing list is OMG member-only so you may not be able to see
the alternatives. The UMLX solution is 100% graphical (including
small annotations). The Sun/Compuware solution claims to be
graphical but actually has 50% or more accompanying declarations.
The others are textual. The UMLX solution is based on and not
that different to the DSTC textual solution.

I would appreciate any comments from those more familiar with
RDBMS concepts than me before I pass it on to a QVT audience.

	Regards
