As previously announced in this post: “Microsoft
Announces CodeZone!“, Tech
Head Brothers, my French portal about Microsoft .NET technologies, will be
part of Codezone. Today for the first time I am able to see what this
means to be a part of the Codezone program.
What can you expect from the Beta Experience?
“Today, you can download a tool that you can use to describe the concepts in a problem domain as the basis for a modeling tool or graphical designer. It is itself a graphical tool built on top of our designer platform and it is completely integrated into Visual Studio. For example, if you need a business process modeling tool, this editor allows you to describe the concepts specific to the way you like to model your business processes.”
It is basically a graphical designer hosted in Visual Studio 2005 for designing and editing the concepts (or metamodel) of visual domain specific languages.
There is also an interesting : “Walkthrough of the Microsoft Tools for Domain Specific Languages“ showing the use of the object model for a user interaction process (UIP) chart language. UIP chart defines pages and transitions between them as part of the design of a Web site, a wizard, or a form-based application. Figure 1 is an example of a UIP chart for a fictitious online shopping Web site. You might find more information on this page about the User Interface Process (UIP) Application Block - Version 2.0.
It seems that we will be updated on Whidbey :-) Nice. I will add to my development an evoluation of the Team System tools.
