Forward Engineering code

Forward Engineering code

Forward Engineering code

Am currently using VS2002 and have just installed Visio Pro 2003 and am wondering if it's possible to have Visio write code from UML.

Things I've seen online suggest that must be using the Enterprise version of VS and to an extent am wanting to confirm.

For example I understand the UML to CODE tool with Viso resides in the UML dropdown menu however, that option doesn't appear to be available.

Finally, our team will be migrating to VS2005 pro and I assume I'm still out of luck if the Enterprise version of VS is still required...


RE: Forward Engineering code

You do need the Enterprise Architect for writting DDL scripts or directly Forward Engineering.

The latest version OF EA comes with VS2005 Pro but only the version through the MSDN subscription. I'm looking into this myself. The page I saw on MS was a bit vague. Not sure why nobody has answered this. If I find out for sure, I'll post.
