What is this book about? If you want to use Visio to create enterprise software, this is the book for you. The integration of Visual Studio .NET Enterprise Architect and Visio for Enterprise Architects provides a formidable tool. Visio offers powerful diagramming capabilities, including such things as creating UML models, mapping out databases with Entity Relationship diagrams, and aiding the development of distributed systems. Its integration with Visual Studio .NET Enterprise Architect means that C# or Visual Basic .NET code can be generated from the UML diagrams, and Visual Studio .NET projects can be reverse engineered to UML models. For the developer already familiar with UML and looking to get the best out of Visio, the Visual Studio .NET and Visio for Enterprise Architects combination is weakly documented, and the quality information needed to realize the time-saving features of Visio just does not seem to be available, until now. This book presumes that you are already familiar with the basic concepts of UML notation - this book will not teach you UML. Instead, this book will take you forward into the Visio environment, showing you how to make the most of its software related features. What does this book cover? In this book, you'll learn how to Diagram business components in VisioGenerate code from a UML modelReverse engineer Visual Studio .NET projects into a UML modelReverse engineer into a UML model without source codeDocument the project with UML and VisioDesign distributed applications with Visio's diagramsWork with Entity Relationship database modeling, and round-trip engineering for database designshow more

He can be reached at Chaur G. Wu currently works for Trend Micro Inc. as a senior software engineer. He started software programming before was old enough to qualify for a driving license. The first program he wrote was a bingo game - in assembly code on a 8051 single chip. To capitalize on the program, he ran a small casino in the lab - he developed primitive game boxes that connected his pals and allowed them to place bets. He's also been involved in much larger projects. For example, he developed a program in C++ to simulate the movement and geographical coverage of GPS satellites. As a research assistant in his graduate study, he implemented a wavelet-based video compression algorithm for a traffic surveillance system sponsored by Boston City Department of Transportation. He also helped solve a blurred image problem using inverse filters and other image processing algorithms for a client who designs fiber optics components in San Jose, CA. His technical interests include distributed software systems in Java, COM, and .NET, generative programming, software design, and neural networks. Outside of work, his favorite vacation combines a one-night gambling trip to Reno followed by a day of skiing at some resort near Lake Tahoe. You can e-mail Chaur at more
