|New and improved Metastorage documentation materials were released
with the intention of helping developers to get started with this
software development productivity tool and quickly deploy their PHP
Besides the Metastorage reference
manual that already existed and was improved for this release, there is
now a tutorial and an
how-to document to address different
levels of interest from the developers on Metastorage documentation.
The new tutorial document provides clear instructions of how to use
Metastorage in practice. It covers the installation steps, how to design
components in the Component Persistence Markup Language (CPML), how to
generate code and UML diagrams from a CPML component design, and finally,
how to use the generated code to build PHP database applications.
The how-to document provides quick answers to questions that are frequently
asked by developers when using Metastorage to develop their applications.
The how-to document does not enter in detailed technical explanations. It
was written having in mind those developers that do not want to spend too
much time trying to understand how does Metastorage work, and are more
focused in getting quick results from the possibilities of this tool.
