Company OverviewResolution Software Ltd., established in 1988, specializes in the development of Xcase, a complete data modeling tool specifically adapted for today's most widely used database application environments including SQL Server, Oracle, Foxpro etc. A forerunner in recognizing the strategic importance of the proper design and maintenance of the database, Resolution has dedicated the last 16 years to the development of Xcase to assist the developer in accomplishing every database related task encompassed by the entire life cycle of the database application.
Company MissionResolution's mission is to provide a thorough and complete, smoothly integrated, highly customizable, database design and maintenance tool with unmatched suitability to task at unmatched prices. Resolution Software is committed to continuing the development of Xcase, adding new features and further enhancements, as well as providing support for all major databases as they evolve.
Strategic Importance of Database DesignAccording to Les Pinter, a specialist in development rescue, 90% of the problems he encounters originate in database design problems. The resulting loss in time and money for both the customer and the developer cannot be overestimated since any problems in the design of the database application will be magnified and propagated throughout the application. Clearly, the proper design and maintenance of the database, including the structures and the associated code, is of absolute strategic importance.
The customer is interested in accurately storing, maintaining and accessing critical information in order to efficiently manage his business and not in acquiring an application. The task of the developer is to provide an information system that allows his client to do so. Given the wide availability of increasingly automated development tools and development frameworks, the developer may concentrate on the design and maintenance of the database system which is the essence of successful database application development.
XCase: The 3rd Generation CASE ToolsWhile first generation CASE tools promised a great deal, they focused on the Upper CASE features of design, but failed to integrate strong Lower CASE features for the generation of tables and code. As a result, they did not address the needs of the modern developer who is often both analyst and programmer. Generic in design, first generation CASE tools were poorly adapted to specific databases. A third generation CASE tool, Xcase is an easy to use, smoothly integrated Upper CASE and Lower CASE solution specifically adapted to todays's leading databases with the highest suitability to task.

"I've spent the last couple days digging through Xcase and have found your product to be exceptional, especially when compared to products costing much more.
This new release is quite remarkable in how well it integrates all of the many functions and the new interface is elegant, intuitive, and easy on the eyes.
I have been an Erwin user since 1996 and Xcase has caused me to abandon it forever. It's been quite a while since I've been so impressed with a commercial software application - it is a compelling piece of work that data workers of any expertise level will appreciate."
Senior Database Architect
"You folks keep up the good work! I will actually be canceling my Erwin support this year, since I’ve found a replacement. Xcase supports more databases, and has the TCL extensions, while Erwin supports fewer databases every year. Plus, a full license of your product costs less than annual support for Erwin!"
Double Diamond Software, Inc
"Eagle Datamation International looked at every major Case tool available and compared price, capabilities and ease of use. We despaired of every finding a decent tool, the costs were high the capabilities poor and the user interfaces were difficult to understand...
"Until we found Xcase. Xcase is low Cost, High performance, very, very simple to use, yet has more capabilities than any of the other tools we used. I am amazed at its performance and continue to be impressed with the speed at which the software is maturing. We continually get new releases that address issues and add features to the system. The overall package AND the detail of the implementation are fantastically powerful."
Chief Technical Officer
Eagle Datamation Inc.
"I use, and teach the use of, Xcase to Visual ProMatrix users worldwide. The universal reaction to the power of designing in Xcase, and then importing into the ProMatrix Data Dictionary using the ProSysPlus Xcase2VPM tool, is one of astonishment. What was fuzzy, becomes clear. Within minutes of completing the Xcase model, VPM forms with full relational integrity and field validation are built from the VPM builders, and are running. Additionally, the ability to add attributes to Xcase objects (entities, fields, etc.) has allowed me to fully populate lookup lists with ProMatrix, both at the entity and foreign key level. With the coming introduction on n-tier based VPM Enterprise, I cannot imagine a better combination of tools with which to handle data. Without the openness of the Xcase data, and the continual improvements added to Xcase, none of this would be possible."
Professional Systems Plus (ProSysPlus)
"We are developing a large application and database to record and store criminal histories and police reports. The design of the database is critical for retrieving timely crime statistics for better community police efforts. I am new to using an ER diagramming tool and was primarily concerned with finding a tool that would be intuitive and easy to learn. Xcase has worked out very nicely for our project development. The best part, though, is that when I have had questions, I have received quick and helpful responses from Resolution's customer support."
Lu Ann Maddy
Colorado Springs Police Department
"The most important part of my applications is DATA... Before choosing a framework or starting any of the application development, I use Xcase Professional to model the data, producing clear diagrams that developers and end-users alike can understand. Good data design is crucial to a successful application and Xcase is the tool I always reach for first. It helps me avoid errors in data design that could be very costly to fix later."
"Xcase is the GREATEST. It has saved me so much especially with Visual ProMatrix and gives me a clean view of my model and an easy way to make changes. Keep up the great work."
"Xcase is a must have for analysts, designers and developers, especially in the two products in which I work, Visual Fox Pro and MS SQL Server. Xcase lets you work smarter by minding the minutia for you, while you concentrate on how to realize your customer's requirements. The product is well conceived (you don't have to work its way) and easy to learn and still has all the depth and attention to detail database design demands. I really love this tool."
Andrew Georgopulos, MCSD
Flash Creative Management
"As a long time database developer who only recently started working with SQL servers, we have faced a steep learning curve. In addition, we have been trying to keep up with a client that keeps making little changes to the database design. Xcase has been a lifesaver. Using Xcase we can quickly change the design and generate a SQL script to create the new database structure. I wish changing the application code was that easy. One of the greatest things about Xcase is the rapid response we have always received from their technical support staff."
Network Systems Integration, Inc
"Concerning Xcase in general, we consider that Xcase is a very good tool that supports most of the features we were expecting for the support of our DB life cycle. As SME, we haven't had the time and the money to investigate deeply the other tools and have been guided by money quality/(low) price considerations. Having worked with Xcase with more than a year, we have been pleased by the number of supported DBMS, its stability, the quality of its support and have not encountered any missing feature that would require for us to go for another tool."
"DynaSoft® has been using Xcase for designing the database for DynaWare®Empresarial, a world class ERP system. Xcase has proven to be an invaluable tool, since it is easy to use, very reliable, and flexible. We have converted our original SQL Server 6.5 model to Informix, Oracle, and SQL Server 7.0 in matter of hours, making minor adjustments, mainly because of DBMS differences."
Ing. Rafael Funes Lovis
DynaSoft, S.A. de C.V.
"We at Healthline Systems, Inc. started using Xcase when we began transitioning our software products from FoxPro data structures to SQL Server. Xcase quickly evolved into a vital part of our development strategies. Its excellent presentation abilities have been extremely helpful in documentation and its script generation processes are an integral part of our implementation plan. In addition, Resolution's support response has been outstanding. There is a real team support in the business relationship. We extend highest recommendations for Resolution and their Xcase software."
"We are a software house and concentrate of development of large MIS/ Data warehouse systems. Since we moved to VFP6 we started to use Xcase. Today we do not understand how anybody who is doing development in VFP or SQL Server could live without it. Xcase is strictly recommended."
DS Consulting & Partner GmbH
"Last night I saw a demo of Xcase and thought it would be an excellent teaching/learning tool. I teach a sequence of courses in Systems Analysis, Design, and Implementation at a local community college. I like the ability of your product to support ERD modeling, and your documentation is excellent."
Andy Vaughan, Instructor
South Seattle Community College
"Let me also take a minute to tell you that I believe your manual does an excellent job of explaining how Xcase works with databases. The explanations are very clear, and I have learned much from your documentation."
"It's worth every penny to reverse-engineer a large custom app, just to print out huge overlapping (color) charts of tables and relations. I've never seen a client so impressed."
"I never had played with Case tools, but now, trust me, I know what they are made for! Your product is remarkably intuitive and stable."
"Overall, a very impressive piece of work. I've worked with a number of 'CASE' tools and with Xcase I found that when I asked 'what about xxx?' the answer was usually 'yes, we can handle that!"
"This is a phenomenal tool - I've showed it to a few of our developers and basically, plan on doing a user group session on it. It is by far the best Case tool for FoxPro around! I love it."
Andrew Ross MacNeill
"Well, I've been poking around with Xcase over the last few days and I'm really impressed. I'm rather stunned with how tight the integration with VFP is... other CASE tools don't come close!"
"We received your product 1 hour ago, we opened a database that was already working and in less than 10 minutes we printed the Entity-Relationship Diagram. Your product is great!!!"
Ing. Rafael Funes Lovis
DynaSoft, S.A. de C.V.
"Xcase is an excellent product. It's powerful, flexible, extendible, and for the price, it represents an incomparable value."
Ted Roche and Peter Moon
in FoxPro Advisor Magazine
"What makes an excellent program perfect is immediate customer support :-) Xcase is a wonderful tool to work with!"
Christoph A. Brocker, Leiter EDV
THOMAE UND PARTNER AG
"I have found Xcase to be very reliable and generally get quick turnaround time for bugs."
"I downloaded your Xcase Light Edition. I was impressed with its ease of use."
"I'm still considering Xcase as the best database case tool."
Francis van der Ghinst
"I think the product is great and the more I use it and get to know its inner power the more I like it."
"... thank you for an excellent product that is serving us very well."
