The test version of the Anchor Modeler has been updated with preliminary Oracle support. The Oracle generation was kindly donated to us by the Swedish bank SBAB. Many thanks to Mikael Backlund (SBAB) and Jonas Åhgren (Xanthe IT) for the work they put into the Oracle generation! It is not a full implementation of uni-temporal yet, so if someone wants to step in and continue the work, please let us know. It is also largely untested by us, so report back if you find something that is broken.
We have also refactored the Layout Engine, in order to make it self-contained and easier to break out and use in other projects. A new feature called equivalence is also being added to uni-temporal (with concurrent-reliance-temporal to follow). Please note that this is still experimental and not yet complete, and the exact implementation may change. Equivalence can be used to create for example multilingual or multitenancy databases. Simply put, it covers use-cases where you may have simultaneous and equivalent values in attributes and knots. We introduced the concept in the presentation: Time, back in 2011, but haven’t had any implementation of it until now.
