I’m a huge fan and strong proponent of round tripping between code and UML models, reverse engineering the code to update your models and generating code for new model items. Sparx Enterprise Architect is the best way I’ve found to do this so far, but there’s some trade-offs to using the product. Fortunately, Microsoft is finally pulling it’s head out of the “real developers don’t model, and if they did they’d be happy to self-inflict the steaming pile that is Visio” hole it’s inhabited for the last several years and might have a decent tool for me to use. It’s about friggin time! I’m REALLY looking forwarding to giving this a try. Now to go convince work to spring for the Ultimate version of VS2010…

We couldn’t get to reverse engineering RE for the UML class diagram in Dev10. It was just too big. We are working on the solution however. We’ll release it as a high quality power tool in around Dev10 RTM.We did get RE into a ‘.Net sequence diagram’ so you can RE straight from code. It’s very cool.

I’ve been a fan (and user) of VirtualBox for several years now for desktop virtualization, so it’s great to keep seeing updates with exciting new features added.

The latest version of VirtualBox delivers some compelling new features, including support for live migration and branched snapshots. Migration capabilities reflect VirtualBox's potential for ascending into the enterprise arena.

This was a fantastic interview that covered a lot of topics I hadn’t really considered before. For example, how to write software that best meets not only the functional requirements of the project, but also the long-term operational requirements. Michael’s book has gone into my Amazon wishlist!

This episode is a discussion with Michael Nygard about his book “Release It” which covers aspects of software architecture you often don’t think of initially when starting to build a system. Some of the points we discussed were capacity planning, recovery as well as making the system suitable for operation in a data center.
