Visu-IT! Name Checker/Builder
The “Visu-IT! Name Checker/Builder” component can be used to support arbitrary naming conventions:
- The Name Checker component ensures the correctness of a name
- The Name Builder component helps to (re-)build a correct name
Rules, Patterns & Catalogs
The Name Checker/Builder operates on a configurable set of Rules and Patterns. Due to this, the component is completely generic and freely configurable. Thus it is easily possible to support specific naming conventions just be adapting the underlying Rules and Patterns. The Rules and Patterns are described in an XML configuration file or in a database.
Deployment & Integration
The Name Checker/Builder can be used as
- a standalone tool
- a plug-in in other applications, e.g. it is integrated in the Visu-IT! tool ADD to check the name of new data objects respectively to be able to generate suitable names.
- a component with a .NET API in order to integrate the Name Checker/Builder into the customer specific tool environment
In addition to that, the Visu-IT! Name Checker/Builder can be used with or without a central database. It is also possible to switch between online mode (with central database) and offline mode (use local XML configuration).
