> A data dictionary as I understood the term, and as it was generally
> understood in the UK, was the place where you kept the conceptual model.
We tended to use repository to refer to the place where you kept a model.
Digital shipped a Common Data Dictionary for the VAX in the early '80s. I don't
remember any integration with CASE or modeling tools at that time. Later we used
repository as the container for models stored by products such as Excelerator,
Application Factory, CorVision, and IBM AD/Cycle.
The terminology difference might be a "which side of the pond?" issue, or it
might simply be what software you were working with.
