I contacted help and the only answer I got was that support for Visual Studio 2015 is not on the radar at all.  Is there any new news on this?

Work Item integration is an absolute necessity if you expect businesses that use TFS to use EA for requirements management.  VS & TFS 2015 and Visual Studio Team Services (was Visual Studio Online) is what everyone I work with is using and new projects can't use Sparx because of the lack of Work Item integration.

Suggestions and Requests / A Value Stream diagram is needed.
« on: May 19, 2016, 10:04:25 pm »
The current Value Chain diagram in EA is ok, but business users go to it thinking it is a value stream diagram.  I have had several people contact me looking for a value stream diagram that have landed on your value chain diagram and have been confused and frustrated.

Suggestions and Requests / Visio Importer needs serious help
« on: April 24, 2016, 04:06:38 am »
I don't use Visio, but 95% of my business users do, and 100% for them use it for flowcharts.

I cannot believe the Visio importer does not import flowcharts correctly.  It turns all flowchart elements into text boxes, seriously?

This is something that Sparx seriously needs to work on.  No, not flowcharts...  imports from Visio period.

The rest of the imports stink too.  I spent the morning playing with them.

I cannot convert an organization that has used Visio forever to Sparx if they cannot move their work smoothly.

You need to build a way to see all the links between all the templates and there fragments visually.

Just a simple class diagram that shows the relationships.

A large bonus would being able to also see the attributes on the fragments and what they have enabled.

I had a very hard time getting people to work with the old system.  I am not even going to try with this system until it is more transparent and user friendly.

It has been made way too complex, but some reporting capability and visual representation could fix that, and actually make it powerful.  That is what I think you were trying to do.

When can we expect to see Visual Studio MDG Integration for Visual Studio 2015?  We are about to kick off a new project and would like to use it for linking with TFS Work Items.

Suggestions and Requests / Make these forums available through RSS
« on: October 14, 2007, 01:52:04 pm »
I love SPARX, but the update process is very painful.  We have to come looking for new releases.  If you made these forums, or at least the What's New forum available through a feed, it would make life easier.

If that is too much work, how about just an email subscription list that you could notify us through?

Suggestions and Requests / Stereotypes on Requirements/Feature diagrams
« on: January 13, 2006, 03:19:01 pm »
I would like the stereotypes I apply to features and requirement to show up on the diagrams, instead of just on the project view tree and in the generated rtm as text.  

We want a visual reprentation of the stereotype on the diagram.

The only thing that shows up is and E or a F, but not the steriotype you apply to it.

Is there a way to get the actual stereotype you apply to the features and requirements to show up on them?

General Board / ICONIX Roadmap is gone with build 816
« on: September 22, 2007, 08:10:18 am »
After install version 7 release 816 the ICONIX Roadmap and ICONIX projects no longer show up as options when creating a new project after updating to version 816.

I did re-install the ICONIX plug-in hoping that would bring it back, but I had no luck.

Is this a known bug or is it that ICONIX is no longer supported as a start up project option? ??? ?

Thanks in advance ....

General Board / EA 7.0 MDG 3.0 Errors- Wait to upgrade
« on: July 11, 2007, 04:47:19 am »
I thought I would provide a link to the installation issues I ran into since I have not seen any "Known Bugs" listed anywhere.

In the end I had to revert back to EA 6.5 and MDG 2.1

General Board / EA shuts down on Data Transfer to SQL
« on: May 15, 2006, 07:20:44 am »
I am getting "Enterprise Architect has experienced a network error and will close down" when I try to transfer from a .EAP file to SQL 2005 Server repository.

This worked fine on previous builds.  I saw this posted in another thread, but that thread went off the subject.

Has anyone else experienced this and worked through it?

Thanks,
Tad

Bugs and Issues / V10 Requirements diagrams are trashed upon upgrade
« on: December 18, 2012, 01:58:27 pm »
Requirement diagrams show all notes and compartments after upgrading and they cannot be turned off.  I have submitted it as a bug but want to post here also.

Here is an example

Bugs and Issues / The Undo button has a Save Icon
« on: July 24, 2009, 03:21:27 am »
If you notice you are having to do a lot of things over that you thought you already did, like I have been doing all morning…..




It seems that in the latest release (Build 846), they mixed up the save and the undo icon.

Bugs and Issues / MDG 3.5 Code Generation Bug
« on: April 19, 2008, 12:50:24 pm »
Code Gen Bug:
In the MDG 3.5 if you change the UML class model and then generate the code, it is not syncing with the current code in place.  It is instead re-writing the entire class including the namespace.  This is in C#.

I have pasted a sample file showing the replicated code.  This did not happen with VS 2005 and previous versions of MDG.  

Create a class, add a method or two, add a UML diagram, sync a SPARX/MDG Link Package with a Visual Studio Project, add a new method to the UML class, and do either generate code, or forward engineering using the package sync tool.  

Please see screenshot below for SPARX Product version details.
