open multiple HBML files in Entity Developer

Post by krintoul@enkon.com » Fri 11 Jan 2019 19:32

Hi everyone,

I am developing a data model and this new model needs to reference entities in a different HBML file. How might I (can I) do this using Entity Developer?

For example, imagine I have a relationship where an Employee entity is in one HBML file and a benefits entity is in another. I can of course copy one to the other but it seems best if I can somehow reference one from the other.

Thoughts?

Entity Developer doesn't allow creating a relationship between entities in different *.hbml models.

It is better to have one model for related entities. We recommend you to use a single *.hbml model but to split it into several thematic diagrams: https://www.devart.com/entitydeveloper/ ... odels.html.
