General Board / Re: UML Profile for JSON

Thank you, Arshad. :)

General Board / UML Profile for JSON
« on: February 12, 2018, 10:25:22 am »
I am creating JSON schema and I would like to understand what concepts in EA class diagrams map to JSON schema concepts. This would require the publication of the UML Profile for JSON in use by the Schema Composer. can anyone point me in the right direction. thank you in anticipation.

General Board / JSON Object property in Schema Composer
« on: February 12, 2018, 10:22:46 am »
I have generated a JSON schema from a simple class diagram that has a class, AircraftDeicing with an attribute, MessageCreateDate which has a type, string. I then manually add the "format" :"date-time" and the "pattern" : "regular expression" as below:

"AircraftDeicing": {
         "type": "object",
         "properties": {
            "MessageCreateDate": {
               "description": "This is the date the message was created",
               "type": "string",
               "format": "date-time",
               "pattern": "^-*[^T:-]+-[^T:]+$"

This schema returns a document frgment
"MessageCreateDate": "2017-11-16T11:04:00Z", but "MessageCreateDate": "2017-11-16",

I created tags to define the value pairs on the "MessageCreateDate" attribute but the Schema Composer did not pick these up.
How may I add these values as properties of the "MessageCreateDate" attribute in EA? Thank you in anticipation.

Suggestions and Requests / geoJSON and TopoJSON Support
« on: February 10, 2018, 08:16:22 am »
I am currently working to develop an Airport industry standard schema for Passenger Indoor Wayfinding. The group has chosen GeoJSON and TopoJSON as the target formats. May I request that the schema composer supports these two geospatial formats.

I would also request that existing JSON support include the import+synchronisation of JSON schema. In another project I am involved with, I wanted to import the new OASIS UBL 2.1 JSON message schema to reuse the data type library and could not do this.  The value of global schema standards is re-use and it appears like that is one of the capabilities the schema composer is designed to support.

i look forward to eeing these capabilities in version 14.00 of the EA. 

I support these requests.

A great guy by name Phil Tomlinson developed an MDG Addin for RAML and synchronisation of JSON. the video is on
He made the tool available on Github.

General Board / Sparxsystems EA and Naked Objects Integration

I found a framework called Naked Objects and would like to integrate this with EA. Has anyone tried to do this with Sparxsystems or any other case tool.

I support the views expressed on usability of EA. I am sure more could be done in this area.

I support this feature request. It should help product diffusion into otherwise difficult / closed markets.

Suggestions and Requests / Re: Web interface into repository
« on: October 30, 2011, 05:51:11 am »
An interesting request.

Last week, I was asked by someone within operations if a web interface with limited functionality exists for EA. They seem to want to interactively modify EA content. I did'nt know what to say as it appeared a strange request and coming from non-IT folks.

It seems like the consumerism of IT is influencing requirements from non-IT staff faster than IT departments can cope with.

Suggestions and Requests / Android Tablet Version of EA
« on: May 21, 2011, 07:35:07 am »
I develop mind maps (as conceptual models) in an easy to use tool on an Android (CyanogenMod 7.3) based Tablet.

This application instead of filling a void makes me miss the EA modeling environment. So, when am I getting EA on my Android Tablet? I bet very soon.


I agree. I also anticipate a solution that goes further by parsing the text and using some clustering algorithm like K-means to cluster the Nouns and deliver a list of candidate business concepts for a domain model.

Just tried Simon's suggestion.
I opened an MS Word Document and highlighted a body of text.
I dragged the text onto a requirements diagram and selected "Requirement". It created a requirement element but pasted the text somewhere in the Tagged Values tab instead of Notes.
Looking forward to the complete solution.

I support this feature request. Any chance we'd be getting a multi-dimensional matrix?
