Get ready for model-driven application development with SQL Server Modeling! This book covers Microsoft's SQL Server Modeling (formerly known under the code name "Oslo") in detail and contains the information you need to be successful with designing and implementing workflow modeling.

Beginning SQL Server Modeling will help you gain a comprehensive understanding of how to apply DSLs and other modeling components in the development of SQL Server implementations. Most importantly, after reading the book and working through the examples, you will have considerable experience using SQL Modeling components, because the book and accompanying source code take you through the steps of actually building solutions using the platform.

Beginning SQL Server Modeling is the only book that comprehensively covers .NET application development using SQL Modeling. This book explains the critical concepts of SQL Server Modeling and model-driven development that every SQL Server developer should know. The book is simple and concise, giving readers an immediate return on their investment. After learning the lessons of this book, business process analysts and developers will be prepared to use SQL modeling for model-based design, development, and implementations.

What you’ll learn
