General Board / Re: how to document EA model in two languages
« on: November 09, 2017, 08:52:43 am »
If I had to support a model in multiple translations my starting point would be to create a stereotype extending Element for each translation.

In each one I would add tagged values for Name and Notes. Depending on requirements I would also add TranslationDate, Translator.

That would at least make it possible to manage the translations. With the way the specification manager handles memo tagged values and grouping in the tagged value window it wouldn't even be too ugly.

107
Sorry, I haven't been able to determine that either.

108
Using the Query Builder, is it possible to create searches that can use more than one tagged value?
Unfortunately, no. It can only build queries using a single record for each table used.

Adding for example the Element Name more than once will make the query not work (I guess it will create a AND in the SQL, but of course you'd expect an OR here; except when using wildcards you might want an AND).

That depends on whether you have marked both entries as required or not.


109
Now the question: how is it possibile to show within a diagram in which communicating pools are pasted as link, all the message flows between them (the message flows flowing from one activity of the first pool to another activity of the second pool.
we tryed it but doesn't show nothing, justh the pool only.
The obective is to use the same pool inside different diagram to design different processes and finally to show at high level all the overall messages flowing between them.
Don't. A Pool is the behavior of a Participant within a Process.

You re-use the participant by setting the participant tagged value in your pool. If you leave the name of your pool empty, EA will automatically display the name of the participant on the diagram.

The option to behave as qwerty has described is there. You'll find it under the security menu. It is not the default.

General Board / Re: Free: Pro Cloud Server Express (with WebEA)
« on: October 31, 2017, 08:43:15 am »
I don't think the people who can give official replies to questions like this are on the forum.

However, I can offer some insight as to how the Pro Cloud Server Express licenses expire and possibilities for renewal.

Unlike regular EA keys, the key you will receive specifies a date that it expires. From that date, the "pro" features of the cloud server will cease to operate. It will still serve as a cloud server to EA.

When you renew your EA licenses (assuming the deal is still valid) that would make you eligible to get a new license key for Pro Cloud Server Express. I don't know what the process is for this, but I suspect that it will still be a request to sales for manual handling. I'm sure if enough of you take up the offer and want renewals there will need to be some automation applied.

There was a limited OSLC interface that provided access only to requirements that is no longer available.

Other than that, it's new features, bug fixes, performance improvements.

Uml Process / Re: Class Attributes: How can I delete the {...} field?
« on: October 31, 2017, 08:27:14 am »
Sorry, the reference I provided doesn't list that as the notation for that type. The notation doesn't appear to match UML 2.5. It could come from SysML, or it could be from an older version of UML. Of course, it could also be a misinterpretation of the specification like my previous post.

114
"undefined" is what you will get from VBScript from an uninitialized variable.

Open the diagram properties.
Go to the features page.
Uncheck 'Show Property String'

For the source of the notation, see Table 7.1 Collection types for MultiplicityElements in UML 2.5.

General Board / Re: Forks and Joins Missing from Project Browser
« on: October 27, 2017, 10:23:36 am »
In my opinion, the bug is that these things can be copy and pasted to a new diagram without creating a duplicate.

If I'm generous, one fork or join being used in multiple places is confusing.  I'm more included to describe it as disastrous.

Notes, text and boundaries are just properties of the diagram, so shouldn't really be re-used either. At least re-using them doesn't have modeling implications.

117
I know very little about that framework. However, I did a web search. This thread came up on the first page, further down came a help link that suggests the EA TOGAF add-in includes the FEAF reference models. (http://www.sparxsystems.com/enterprise_architect_user_guide/13.5/model_domains/support_for_federal_enterprise.html)

If so, that means our TOGAF profile is a suitable profile.

Bugs and Issues / Re: Bug when copying package
« on: October 20, 2017, 09:05:59 am »
I know, my life would be so much simpler if you didn't.

I can't complain though I [mis|ab]use it all the time too. The flexibility that it offers to do crazy things is one of its strengths.

I could add the word "conceptually". Of course not all relationships have direction conceptually (eg. Association has two or more ends where each end can be owned by the association or the classifier) in which case you would need to use a different method to determine if adding it is changing each end. Some relationships aren't technically changing either end. (eg. Dependency is technically not changing either end, it's intentionally too abstract to have any concrete meaning)

Unless of course you are saying that I can somehow ask the API to get the image from the cache rather then to re-generate it. That would really be the ideal case. :)
That's exactly what I'm saying. The API to do that was added in the same version that added the capability to save the cache.

Unfortunately, I can now see the problem. It appears that the API functions added for this where misplaced as a result of versioning of the help. I've copied the signatures and descriptions below. I'll see to it that this is included in the help when it's next updated.

GetDiagramImageAndMap(string DiagramGUID, string Directory)Boolean

Notes : Saves the Image and Image-map for the Diagram with the specified GUID in the specified Directory location.
The Image will be saved in PNG format and will have a name same as that of the Diagram GUID.
The Image-map will be saved as a TXT file and
will have a name same as that of the Diagram GUID.
The option Auto Create Diagram Image Map must be enabled in the Model for this function to save the Image and Image-map.

Parameters :
  • Diagram GUID the GUID of the Diagram whose Image and Image-map is to be saved
  • Directory the location where the Image and Image-map is to be saved
GetAllDiagramImageAndMap(string Directory)Boolean

Notes : Saves the Image and Image-map for all the Diagrams in the Model in the specified Directory location.
The Image will be saved in PNG format and will have a name same as that of the Diagram GUID.
The Image-map will be saved as a TXT file and
will have a name same as that of the Diagram GUID.
The option Auto Create Diagram Image Map must be enabled in the Model for this function to save the Image and Image-map.

Parameters :
  • Directory the location where the Image and Image-map is to be saved
