New CAM Editor v2.4 release with enhanced Collaboration tools
By drrwebber on Mar 27, 2013
The new XPath conditional rule entry wizard makes XPath rules definition significantly easier for cross-field validations and more. We have also improved the rule handling in the CAMV engine to be more consistent.
For collaboration the locations of dictionaries collections can now be located at a URL, a file system or stored in the Oracle Enterprise Repository (OER). Coupled with this are now the consistent dictionary collections and database connections manager tools for configuration management. Also better generation of dictionaries from spreadsheets and a new spreadsheet to dictionary utility XSLT tool. Dictionary XML component generation has also been improved adding a new Components section to itemize components in dictionaries along with more and more consistent handling for dictionary content types, rules and annotations.
The template evaluation report and NIEM NDR (Naming and Design Rule) checking is improved including better representation terms.
The XSD schema importing and exporting now supports the use of Appinfo tags for application specific detailing of exchange data relationships.
For models we have enhanced the Mindmaps to include color coding of Added and Updated annotations plus SQL DBmappings and choice items.
For reports we have added a new Export to XML option for the popular Tabular Report view. This exported XML is compatible with importing into an Excel spreadsheet or can be custom rendered using a stylesheet or XSLT transformation.
Several enhancements have been made to the CAMV validation engine along with XSD schema generating and annotations handling. For Open-XDX SQL data integration we now have a nifty utility that can generate MySQL database tables from CSV text file data exports.
