Are you sure there are multiple UML profiles for Archimate?

I can only find the one from the OMG.

According to a response from Simon on another post, the OMG profile is basically the one from Sparx (who is also a member of the OMG)

There is no "Add Diagram" context menu, but you can use the "New Diagram" button on the top of the project browser to create a new state machine diagram.

Bugs and Issues / Re: Changes to model not saved

I haven't seen such a behavior before, and I use SQL server repositories all the time (also with v14).

Are you editing the notes from the docked notes window (automatic save) or from the properties dialog (only save upon clicking OK)

If it looks like a bug that you can reproduce don't hesitate to send in a bug report

Have you tried the template package?
That might be exactly what you are after.

Colin,

I see two problems

1. You are not refreshing the Elements collection, so the elements you are adding are not found in the .Elements collection. This is the one time you should call Refresh()
2. You are using GetByName(). I don't trust that operation :-\. On half of the EA.Collections it won't work and will throw an error. And if it does work I'm not sure in which order I will get something, and if it is case sensitive or not.  Anyway, I always write my own operation iterating over the objects in the EA.Collection.

Alternatives to using GetByName():
- in case it is a smallish collection then just iterate over the collection and test for the name yourself
- If the EA.Collection is rather large, and you will need most of them in some way then you can iterate over the collection and put them into a Dictionary with the name as key.
- If the EA.Collection is rather large, and you only need a few of them then you will be better off using Repository.GetElementSet() passing an SQL query as parameter.

I don't think the OMG restricts what kind of elements you can put on a diagram in any way.

So I guess (hope?) EA will not implement those kind of restrictions anytime soon.

A note has the following appearances...
Huh. I never was aware of that  ::)

q.

Was introduced in v13 or v13.5 I think.

EA has traditionally allowed this anyway, but while reworking functionality for version 14 we decided that it was time to prevent it by default.

Thank you Simon, that will spare me a lot of "There are no Activities on an Activity Diagram!" lectures in the future. :)

An alternative could be to write a little script and use the standard shapes.

Bugs and Issues / Re: Files on Sharepoint
« on: June 15, 2018, 05:40:04 pm »
Out of curiosity, and Alin, please don't read this as a workable alternative; what I said in my previous post holds and enterprise deployment means DBMS repositories, but:

An .eap file is basically an Access database with another extension.
When using it tries to create a temporary lock file, which sharepoint doesn't allow.

Does that apply to Firebird (.feap) as well? Or would it be possible to store a Firebird repository in SharePoint?


/Uffe

I don't know, but from the little experimentation I did with .feap files I notices that they were significantly slower than .eap file, so I kind of dismissed them as an option.
But if you setup sharepoint to do check-in/check-out you will always have issues with concurrent access I guess. So regardless of the type of file, I guess you would be limited to a single user.

It is technically impossible to use access databases on sharepoint, regardless of what your company policy says.

That makes sense (as in explains the behavior I've witnessed)

I think that was related with whether or not it would show the horizontal scrollbar, and that depends on the visual theme.

IIRC it doesn't auto-scroll if you use the Office-XP style.

Weirdly enough I just tried it in v13.5.1352 and I could make it auto-scroll anymore, not even with the office 2016 theme.

They might even have fixed it back then.

It's EA.Element.Type you are looking for.

You should never put .eap files on sharepoint.

An .eap file is basically an Access database with another extension.
When using it tries to create a temporary lock file, which sharepoint doesn't allow.
