Apptacular Update and Video

I know I’ve been quiet of late. But I’ve been working.

You see a few weeks ago I had this checklist up on the site:

  • Make sure apptacular_blog database works on MySQL on MAC.
  • Make sure apptacular_blog database works on MySQL on PC.
  • Make sure sakila database works on MySQL on MAC.
  • Make sure sakila database works on MySQL on PC.
  • Make sure apptacular_blog database works on MSSQL on MAC.
  • Make sure apptacular_blog database works on MSSQL on PC.
  • Make sure adventureworks database works on MSSQL on MAC.
  • Make sure adventureworks database works on MSSQL on PC.
  • Fix major issues in code readability.
  • Start Document how to work with Apptacular

See those AdventureWorks database items? They nearly killed me and made me want to stop work on Apptacular. AdventureWorks is like a cruel Double Dare obstacle course for code generation:

  • Composite primary keys
  • Composite foreign keys
  • Composite primary keys that are also foreign keys
  • Custom Datatypes
  • Constraints (Really only affected unit testing).

I came through, and now I can give you this list:

  • Make sure apptacular_blog database works on MySQL on MAC.
  • Make sure apptacular_blog database works on MySQL on PC.
  • Make sure sakila database works on MySQL on MAC.
  • Make sure sakila database works on MySQL on PC.
  • Make sure apptacular_blog database works on MSSQL on MAC.
  • Make sure apptacular_blog database works on MSSQL on PC.
  • Make sure adventureworks database works on MSSQL on MAC.
  • Make sure adventureworks database works on MSSQL on PC.
  • Fix major issues in code readability.
  • Start Document how to work with Apptacular

So that’s where I am. A few of you asked if you could get your hands on Apptacular and I would be happy to distribute it to individuals. I’m not ready for general availability yet though.

And as a final note, I thought I would share this feature with you: Apptacular can model CRUD for image fields in your database.

  1. I was just looking at a blog over at Ray Camden’s site and he showed all the folders he has for Apptactular…does that mean it has been released? Any updates?

  2. This looks great. I cant wait to test your Apptacular Extension. I hope you will distribute it soon.
    Scaffolding looks like an extreme timesaver. Right now I work on a product catalog and it would have been great to let your Apptacular Extension do the work for me 😉
