Suggestions and Requests / Feature Visibility in Class Diagrams
« on: July 18, 2003, 03:39:48 am »
Maybe add a more accessible way to show/hide attributes and methods in a class in a diagram - somewhat like Rose has.

Suggestions and Requests / Cut, Copy and Paste Attributes and Methods
« on: July 18, 2003, 03:42:26 am »
It would be nice to be able to cut, copy and paste attributes, within a class or between classes.

Suggestions and Requests / Link Tab in Class Properties
« on: July 18, 2003, 04:17:25 am »
It would be very useful to be able to view and modify the link properties from the links tab in class properties.

This is especially the case with the current (build 618) restrictions on associations from a class to istelf.

Either this, or to be able to access the links from the project explorer (similar to Rose).

General Board / Package Control With Subversion
« on: July 29, 2008, 05:20:33 am »
While trying to control my model with Subversion I get: "Error while initializing [sic] Version Control provider: svn: This client is too old to with with working copy '.'; please get a newer Subversion client".

Man, I know I'm getting old, but I'd appreciate it of my software tools didn't remind me ;)

Anyone got any clues to help me along?

General Board / How to show link?
« on: January 21, 2007, 01:25:39 am »
In 802, I hit del to remove an association from my class diagram.  How do I get it back onto the diagram?  I'm sure there used to be a right-click in the relationships window that allowed you to do this for the single link.  I can't  find it though!

Thanks

General Board / Version Control - Sharing Packages
« on: January 05, 2006, 06:30:18 am »
Hi

Wondering if anyone can help me achieve the following?  I have a package of base classes that I want to use in more than one EA model (EAP format).  I have the package setup in my version control (QVCS) and have setup one project to have a controlled package for this.  When I try and setup a controlled package in another EAP, I get a dialog telling me the following:

The file 'base classes.xml' is already under version control.  Please choose another filename or click Start Version Control Explorer to purge this file from the provider.

Anyone else out there doing this, or can you only import the package into one model on the workstation?  I'm using EA 6.0 (781), if that makes any difference.

Thanks

General Board / Baselines and Differencing
« on: November 24, 2005, 11:50:40 am »
I've just been playing with baselines and aren't sure if I'm doing anytning wrong.  I create a baseline of a package, then go to manage baselines and click show differences.   Despite the fact that nothing in the package has changed, there are loads of differences shown.  The same is true if I create two baselines, select them and view the differences.

Can anyone tell me what I'm missing, please?

Thanks

General Board / Hot Tip - Straight Lines
« on: September 09, 2005, 03:16:58 am »
I like to have my associations horizontal or vertical in diagrams where possible.  Dragging the end of the association is a bit of a pain - I always end up dragging an end adornment, or the other end moves too.  

If your classes are aligned at the top edges, simply drag the association to the top end and it will become horizontal when it hits the top.  Then just drag it to the spot you want.  Ta dah!  Similarly for verticals too.

Just thought I'd share that!

General Board / Version Control Question
« on: May 20, 2005, 08:00:09 am »
Hi

When controlling packages with XMI import/export, how do can I control things like to project glossary, auto-counter settings, sys-issues etc. without having to check in the eap file?

Thanks

General Board / Reporting on attached notes
« on: May 20, 2005, 08:32:33 am »
In the new rtf templates, is there any way to report on a constraint attached to an association as a note?  If not, could we include it please, Sparx?

Thanks

General Board / Not about EA, but...
« on: March 16, 2004, 09:29:32 am »
...does anyone know of any papers that do a comparison between OO/UML and procedural coding/SSADM approaches.  What I want is something like a cost-benefit analysis, or similar?

Thanks

General Board / Reverse Engineering Comments
« on: March 16, 2004, 08:00:39 am »
We use C# and NaturalDocs (http://www.naturaldocs.org) to produce documentation from the source comments.  The comments look something like:

// Method: DoSomething
// Waffle about the method and its params here.
public void DoSomething()
{}

I'd like to be able to import these comments back when reverse engineering code.  Is this possible?

Thanks

General Board / Comments When Reverse Engineering C#
« on: November 18, 2003, 03:26:19 am »
We use Natural Docs (www.naturaldocs.org) to get documentation from the code comments.  It's a great bit of kit and leaves you with comments that don't render themselves unreadable - unlike the MS xml-style comments (an example below).  However, they don't get imported when we reverse engineer the code.  Is there a way to get EA to import them?

Thanks

Sean

General Board / EA Website - Documentor Add-In Link
« on: October 08, 2003, 02:06:51 am »
The link to Henk Rippen's documentor for EA leads to a German site which has a link for a documentor for Rose.  Does anyone know the link for the EA documentor?

General Board / ## HELP ## EAToolkit 1.1
« on: September 04, 2003, 08:21:49 am »
I have just browsed around and found the EAToolkit 1.1.  I installed it onto my XP Pro SP1 machine on which I was running EA 3.60, the latest build (637 if I remember right!)  Then, when I started EA it crashed.  I went to uninstall the EAToolkit, but its uninstall crashes.  I then uninstalled EA and reinstalled.  You guessed it.....it still crashes.  I am left unable to run EA or to uninstall EAToolkit and cannot do any work ;(  

I have contacted the EAToolkit's support and am waiting for a response.  Can anyone help, please?

Thanks

Sean
