Suggestions and Requests / EA Future Path?
« on: December 11, 2007, 02:25:40 am »
How can users/customers influence the future development of EA? I.e. how can we find out how Sparx intends to develop EA? How can we influence that development?

The feeling I get here is that a lot of people would like to see niggles in the UI sorted out before more new leading edge features.

I actually think that Sparx could do no harm in implementing most (if not all) of what Paolo Cantoni suggests. He appears to be a power user who has exercised bits of EA that most normal users don't know even exist.

I develop/support a flagship product for my company. The company informs customers of the development path in various ways (newsletters/user conferences/web). It sometimes asks for feedback on those development plans. In fact a number of products will now only add on customer specified features.

I have no problem with the update strategy being limited to registered users.

Just my 1p.

Suggestions and Requests / Voting for fixes/enhancements?
« on: March 07, 2007, 05:22:41 am »
Is there any chance of having a system whereby registered users/licensed users can vote for fixes/enhancements?

In that way the most popular ones would get fixed first.

Suggestions and Requests / Maximise diagram?
« on: February 27, 2007, 11:29:52 pm »
A neat feature that I like in Eclipse and would like to see in EA is the ability to "maximise" the current diagram. I couldn't see an obvious way of doing this in EA? It may already be present.

In Eclipse I can maximise the current set of source files just by clicking on the "maximise" button. Obviously the "maximise" button becomes "restore" when in the maximised state.

The advantage of this is that when one has a large diagram (e.g. after having imported a large Java/C++ project) it would be nice to be able to double the screen area devoted to diagrams without have to close all navigation/support windows.

General Board / Java Package Dependencies?
« on: January 16, 2009, 09:34:54 pm »
Suppose I import a whole load of Java code into EA.
Is there a view that allows me to see dependencies between packages rather than classes?

General Board / Attributes/Associations?
« on: January 30, 2008, 11:26:08 pm »
If I add 2 classes to a diagram (A+B) and A has an instance of B. Is it possible to request the diagram to discover the associations between the classes present and show them? I.e. fill in the missing associations?

General Board / Initial Start Page?
« on: December 11, 2007, 12:16:24 am »
When starting up EA for the first time one is presented with the initial Start Page. Is there a simple way to switch the GUI back to that initial configuration?

The reason I ask is that new users can frequently mess up the interface (sometimes just accidentally undocking/redocking dialogs). It would be nice just to provide a key sequence to reset the UI back to the default Start Page.

General Board / Distant teams?
« on: September 21, 2006, 02:20:49 am »
We are looking to switch to EA from Rose for our distributed team.

One concern is related to using a shared copy of EA across the internet - i.e. one project may have members in distant locations that need to share the same DB (typically over a slowish network).

Is it possible to have local copies of the EA DB that can be later merged into the "master" copy?

Many thanks in advance for any responses.

General Board / Java import?
« on: September 22, 2006, 08:50:49 am »
When I imported a Java project I couldn't appear to find the @param values for the parameters? Where should I be looking?

I assume that the fields I'm after would also be used to produce the @param values going from model to source?

Many thanks in advance for any responses.

General Board / Code format?
« on: September 20, 2006, 03:42:54 am »
If one uses the inbuilt editor or even the code generation facility is it possible to alter the format of edited/generated code?

Or is it up to the user to do this in an external editor/environment?

Bugs and Issues / BUG: Element Usage
« on: December 11, 2007, 12:08:50 am »
The Element Usage dialog is not resizeable. What is the point of having resizeable columns if one can't adjust the size of the window? This also applies to the vertical scroll bar too.

Please ensure that this particular dialog (along with all such similar dialogs) may be resized by the user. Of course it would be useful if the user selected size is remembered for subsequent uses of the dialog.

Bugs and Issues / BUG: Autohide docked windows
« on: December 11, 2007, 05:20:18 am »
If "autohide all docked windows" is used it indeed hides the docked windows. The menu item should then become "reveal all docked windows" to perform the inverse operation. If the user in the meantime has opened a docked window then we should have "autohide all docked windows" as the menu item.

Or simply have 2 such menu items without the underlying clever logic.
