This video explains how you can use tools like the Architecture Explorer to better understand and comprehend complex systems before making any changes to them. You will see how graphically modeling the code makes it easier to understand the impact of a potential change. The video explains also how you can use modeling tools for UML and layer diagramming to describe and communicate the design of a new system—including how these tools can be used to validate the software being developed against its intended architecture.

Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate Edition includes a fully-featured UML (Unified Modeling Language) support, integrated into the IDE. This article on custom UML profiles – an extensibility mechanism that can be used to tailor UML models to a particular problem domain. Readers will see an example of such a profile, which extends UML Class Diagrams for database modeling. Finally, the article shows how code can be generated from UML models using T4 text templates.

This video provides an introduction to domain driven modeling using conceptual class diagrams in Visual Studio 2010.

[25 Aug 2011 | Comments Off on Validate Code with Layer Diagrams in Visual Studio | ]

This tutorial shows how to use Visual Studio to create a layer diagram to represent the system logical architecture. Like a traditional architecture diagram, a layer diagram identifies the major components or functional units of the design and their interdependencies. We will then use the diagram to ensure that our application code remains true to the rules established in that diagram.
