General Board / Re: Can you use multiple values in <Search Term>
« on: November 17, 2017, 08:01:31 pm »
I got it to work on an EAP repo. You need to supply the search term with double quotes.

Yes, sure you can. EA has an API and I use Perl and Python. There are only very little constraints when using certain languages.

Bugs and Issues / Re: attribute order messed up

Arrest the usual suspects.

Sort of the flag type "Match whole word" in addition to the search field, I guess. This is being found in many search machines, but would be the base for a new feature request here (I guess again).

Yes, but it's inconvenient (due to inconsistency). You need to look after the "stereotype" of a diagram in StyleEx in the MDGDgm tag.

IIRC it should be enough to pass the date as DD-MM-YYYY while the slash-format (MM/DD/YYYY) is always interpreted as American.

American style. 12 is a valid month, 13 isn't. Localization is the hell. Especially when working with Mickeysoft products.

I can't speak much for Archimate, but this looks like you should send a bug report.

General Board / Re: How does EA treats Note, Comments and Text box entries?
« on: November 14, 2017, 06:42:37 pm »
Basically they are Text elements in EA's database and receive different renderings by internal flags. I guess they better were just stereotyped rather than this internal flag voodoo which likely comes from ancient roots. But that's the way it is. Just choose your flavor.

What would be nice is if we could specify our own icon for a diagram.

If you create any diagram from BPMN you see that they are Analysis diagrams and don't have a stereotype. It's only that EA knows the meta-type and associates a toolbox with the diagram.

General Board / Re: Archimate Open Exhcnage format and EA

A subtle correction: you shall be using instances. Anything else is plain wrong an will make your model loose information (when using XMI ex-/import). Unfortunately EA does not forbid the use of classes in SDs :-/

Bugs and Issues / Re: EA Trial on MacOS / wine / Core Dump!
« on: November 09, 2017, 10:56:36 am »
I once tried it and got it to run under MacOS (that time I was disappointed with Parallels). But - I got back to Parallels. It's simply the best mule to carry Windoze on a Mac.

General Board / Re: how to document EA model in two languages
« on: November 08, 2017, 10:00:42 pm »
I would recommend to stay in one language. If you need a translation create a document and have it translated. Why? If you keep each text in two languages you are always in doubt which of two translations is correct. If someone edits a note and is only fluent in one language he will only update one part of the notes. Or even worse he will mess up the other part. So: if your modelers are fluent in both languages you can do as Geert suggests (I did something similar in the past). But if not, you should stay in one common language for the model. There are trade-offs in both ways.

No, no. They are actually two persons. Dr. Uffe and Mr. Hyde.
