Andy Leonard introduces the Biml Relational Hierarchy:

There are two ways to populate the relational hierarchy:

  • Graphically
  • Programmatically

In this post, I am going to cover graphically populating the relational hierarchy. Scott Currie [Varigence] provided a remarkable example of programmatically populating the relational hierarchy in his BimlScript.com article Biml Basics for Relational DBs.

Populating the relational hierarchy graphically is simple; just follow the steps as they are listed from top to bottom in the Logical View’s Relational node in the Mist IDE. Begin with Connections.

Following along does require a copy of Mist/BimlStudio but there’s a free trial.  If your company gets seriously into Biml, Mist is a great purchase.
