Mapping Data With Deeper Understanding

By jas51 - December 13, 2010

Are you one of the growing number of people faced with extending a standards based data model? Have you got to form mappings from one data schema to another so that your automatic code generator can spit out programs that transform data from some source to some target? I find myself in just such a situation and Patterns of Data Modeling is a real help. I am faced with extending the ACORD data model to be company specific. Through patterns and archetypes this book has helped me know where to place my extensions among the many classes in the ACORD information model. Michael Blaha's patterns have helped me to see the structures embedded in various data models, and xsd's. Knowing these structures gives me insights into the issues I face as I form mappings between various data schemas and the extended ACORD information model.

More and more of our time is spent building models and mapping constructs for the purpose of automated code generation. This book comes just in time to... read more

A must-read book for all modellers!

By IL YEOL SONG - December 9, 2010

This is a much awaited real data modeling patterns book - corresponding to the programming pattern book by the so-called Gang of Four. This is a must-read book for all practitioners, intermediate or advanced data modelers, and researchers who work on conceptual modeling or systems analysis & design. The book covers data modeling patterns that we should apply, antipatterns that we should avoid, archetypes that are common modeling structures occurring across different applications, canonical patterns that correspond to meta models of modeling languages & diagrams, and relational database design that maps modeling constructs to relational schema. The book is rich with diagrams that illustrate each patterns and cases. In most cases, the book presents the diagrams in both UML and IDEF1X notations. The book is quite easy to read and rich with useful modeling techniques and tips based on the author's experience. Even with my 25 years of teaching and research activities in data modeling &... read more

Very comprehensive

By Steve Hoberman "Data Addict" - October 16, 2010

This book provides a very comprehensive and rich set of design patterns. I am not a UML expert, yet with the help of Appendix A, which explains the UML notation, I was able to read the diagrams and understand their usages. The book's scope also includes star schema which I really appreciated.
