Modern software environments like XDE .NET provide integrated and powerful tools that designers and developers can use in all stages of the application development from building use case diagrams to automatically generating code. Such tools allow a much more systematic and highly automated approach of the entire development process transforming what not long ago was more like an "art" into a better understood engineering activity. Still, there are many challenges the designers and developers have to deal with in order to make the tools work properly and produce meaningful results. Some of these challenges are faced at the sensitive point of passing from the realm of Object Models to the one of Data Models. In this paper we explore some of these challenges and attempt to provide some sensible approaches, illustrated through a simple example.
