The NABUCCO Framework is the foundation for the NABUCCO product line. A modern MDA approach provides a basis for qualitatively high value, stable software with multi-client capabilities. Components, which are fully reusable, are thereby developed through the original MDA approach. The development of customized applications is supported in the same way as the development of the company's own products, such as Skill Management. Customized solutions can benefit from NABUCCO on many levels; use of the MDA approach for a customized MDA process with separate DSL; use of the NABUCCO DSL / generator as a software factory; development of new components for specific industries or customers; customizing existing components without coding; and expanding existing components to create a customized solution.
The goal of dzo is to treat application database objects the same way the application's source code is treated, with respect to development, revision control, and deployment. Dzo uses a text file that contains native create statements for all database objects and compares them against the actual database-schema. As a result, dzo creates the SQL statements needed to update the database schema (or you can let dzo execute the SQL statements directly). If your application lives in a Tomcat or Java EE application server, dzo has a servlet that controls the deployment process, inspects and executes the necessary database changes, and finally deploys the application. Dzo currently works with HSQLDB, MySQL, Oracle, PostgreSQL, and SQL Server (more to come).
