Visio for Software Architects


S

Steve

I like Visio and have been using the Visio that comes with Visual Studio
..NET Enterprise Architect 2003 (I think it's actually Visio 2002 with
add-ons) to allow me to generate SQL and C# code from my ERD and UML
diagrams.

Is there a more up-to-date version of Visio which has these capabilities or
will I have to stick with the version I'm using?

Just for clarification, VSEA 2003 came with a copy of Visio 2002. VSEA
2005 comes with a copy of Visio 2003 (the current version of Visio).
There doesn't seem to be a Visual Studio Enterprise Architect 2005.

From the "standard" Visual Studio 2005 versions you have Express, Standard,
Professional and Tools for Office.

According to this
http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/teamsystem/products/compare/default.aspx,
Visio is included in the Team System editions.

Is it only the Team System editions that have Visio 2003? Or do any of the
standard VS 2005 versions have Visio 2003?

VS 2005 Premium comes with Visio 2003 for EA.

Careful. Visio 2003 for EA is actually Visio 2002. Just call it Visio 2003.
When I click help > about, it says Microsoft Office Visio for
Enterprise Architects. When I click Help What's new, it says Microsoft
Office Visio 2003. MSDN
(http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms182014.aspx) says "In
addition to all the features in Microsoft Office Visio Professional
2003, with Visio for Enterprise Architects you can ........."

How do you distinguish between the non EA versions of visio 2003 and
the EA version of Visio 2003 if you don't call it Visio 2003 for EA?

Cheers,

Chris.

I would avoid using the name Visio 2003 for EA, the real name should be VSEA
2005 that includes Visio 2003 or VSEA 2003 that includes Visio 2002.

The real issue started when VSEA 2003 was released, just before Visio 2003
and so, the latest version of Visio that could be included was Visio 2002.
To be sure, I would check the version number, Visio 2003 is version 11.

What about 2007 To use the new features can we expect a new version of EE or
should we usee 2003EE side by side with 2007 Pro?
