The Free Model (FEM) allows a user to create any kind of chart, diagram, in

 

a context-free environment. You can use the Free Model to create different

 

graphics for your specifications, to explain the architecture of your system

 

and applications, the use-case scenarii of the applications, the flowcharts, or

 

to define your own method.

 

If there is something you want to graphically represent, but there is no easy

 

way to build a model using a standard BPM, CDM, PDM, or OOM, you can

 

use the Free Model to create it.

 

By taking advantage of advanced features like the Generic Generator,

 

Extended Attributes, and Custom Symbols you can create very specific

 

diagrams tailored to your specific use.

 

You can enrich the diagrams in the Free Model by selecting different bitmaps

 

for each symbol and add extended attributes to collect specific metadata.

 

VBScript and the Generic Generator make it possible to program your own

 

semantics into this model and create specific generated code or other output

 

particular to your own interpretation.

 

The Free Model makes you free to explore representations beyond the

 

standards set by the other, more specific models in PowerDesigner.

What to represent

A model representing how your models and documents relate to each

with a Free Model?

other

 

A model representing the organizations in your enterprise and how they

 

interrelate

 

A model representing a flowchart

 

A model representing a hierarchy diagram

 

A model representing the graphics you use in PowerPoint presentations

 

and link them to the presentations they are used in

 

A model representing the users in your Enterprise Repository and link

 

them to symbols representing the groups they belong to

 

A model representing an ORM model using ORM specific extended

 

model definitions

 

There are many more ways you can use this model. You are free to explore

 

easy or complex implementations.

'HILQLQJ QDPLQJ FRQYHQWLRQV

1DPLQJ FRQYHQWLRQV are common model options that you can define in the Model Options dialog box.

The naming conventions allow the user to:

Set rules in order to enforce predefined name and code formats for all the objects within a model. When you type a name or a code that does not respect the conventions, PowerDesigner applies checks and systematically adapts them to the required format. When you define name and code formats in a model, these options are saved in the model or can be used as default parameters for new models of the same type

For more information on name and code format, see section Defining name/code format.

Set conversion scripts in order to generate objects name from their code or objects code from their name using specific macros and conversion tables. This feature is only available when you select the Enable name/code conversion option.

For more information on name and code conversions, see section Defining name/code conversions.

1DPH LQWR FRGH FRQYHUVLRQ GXULQJ LQWHUPRGHO JHQHUDWLRQ

The name into code conversion is particularly useful for intermodel generation, as it allows you to define how you want the codes of your model objects to be generated. For more information on the name into code conversion during the intermodel generation, see section on intermodel generation options in the different modules user’s guides.

Name and code format encompasses constraints on length, character case and type for the name and the code of objects.

By default, PowerDesigner displays object names, you can modify this option and choose to display the code of objects.

You can set name and code format for:

Models and packages

Each type of object in a model

Reusable templates you can apply to different types of objects in a model

General Features Guide

 

'HILQLQJ QDPH FRGH IRUPDW

From the Model Options dialog box, you can define the following options for names and codes:

2SWLRQ

'HVFULSWLRQ

Display Name

Displays the names of objects in the interface

Display Code

Displays the codes of objects in the interface

Enable name/code

Enables or disables the use of conversion scripts and

conversions

conversion tables to generate a code from a name or a name

 

from a code. For more information, see section Defining

 

name/code conversions

Naming Template

Allows you to use a template for name and code format for

 

several types of objects within a model

Maximum Length

Maximum number of characters. In a PDM, this maximum

 

number of characters can come from the Registry (if you

 

defined a Maximum length and clicked the Set As Default

 

button) or from the DBMS definition file. If a maximum

 

length is declared in both the Registry and the DBMS,

 

PowerDesigner uses the length with higher constraint. For

 

example, in the case where the Registry = 128 and the

 

DBMS = 30, PowerDesigner uses 30 characters for

 

maximum length

Character Case

Indicates authorized character cases: Uppercase, Lowercase,

 

and Mixed Case

Valid Characters

List of authorized characters, you can type ranges of valid

 

characters

All Valid

Accept all characters

Invalid Characters

List of unauthorized characters. You can use this box to

 

type exceptions to the ranges of valid characters

No Accents

Removes accents from accented characters

Default Character

Character used to replace the invalid characters in the name

 

or code

 

 

Character selection When you specify valid characters you define which characters will be accepted and then, you indicate in the invalid character box, which characters will be considered as invalid among those.
