Bugs and Issues / Change filename or path of a VC controlled file
« on: July 13, 2012, 11:56:06 pm »

if I try to change the filename in the configuration dialog EA asks me to disconnect from VC and after clicking ok VC asked me to reconnect from VC and and reconnect with the new file name.

Do you wish to disconnect Version Control?

After 'Yes' and configure VC again EA expects a new file which isn't under Version control.

So far so good: If I do so I loose the history of the version controlled element.

Well, there is a solution with SQL which I don't like.

Maybe you have a solution.

Thanks and kind regards,


Bugs and Issues / Re: Unable to release checkedout package
« on: June 25, 2012, 11:11:39 pm »
Hello Luc,

the idea behind the above command is to deal with differences about the package state regarding Checkin/Checkout.. between the model and the SVN. After the successful command EA should have updated the SQL database according to SVN. It should be checked in or checked to you.

You can try:
- Right Click Package
- Package Control
- Re-synch Status wirh CM Provider

If in SVN the package is checked out and you know the changes you can checkin the package with SVN and resynchronize with the above commands.

To my opinion there is no need to change the XML-File or the SQL Server Database.

May be someone else has more experience with such cases.

Good luck,

Hello Luc,

I assume your Version Control Settings are correct.

  • Project
  • Version Control
  • Re-synch status of all packages

Hi Geert,

thanks for your reply.

It's easy to reproduce and I've sent a bug report to SPARX.

thanks for your advise.

Unfortunately this isn't just by chance. It happens more than 10 times a day. These all only with Action Pins.
Additionally sometimes there is a lost of data.  A note e.g. becomes an "External Reference" and the content is lost. The benefit of VC is that you ca see it very well.

Do be aware of the problem is easy: Just a script to search for 'External Reference'. The thing is: In fact there is no missing 'External Reference'. It has something to do with Export/Import XML.

Bugs and Issues / Duplicated GUID action pin and VC private repo
« on: June 19, 2012, 11:51:03 pm »
Duplicated GUID (t_object, t_operationparams) by action pin and private repositories
We work with two private repositories (Oracle, *.eap) and MKS as VC tool.
1. In Oracle:     Make a Call Operation Action with an Action Pin and Check in.
2. In *.eap-File: Checkout Package in *.eap file, make some changes and Checkin
3. In Oracle:     Checkout Package
   The Action Pin has the Type 'External Reference'
   The ClassifierGUID in table (actionPin) points to the Boundary Element with the Text 'External Reference'
   The ClassifierGUID in table (actionPin) points to the operationparams.

Thanks for your help!

Bugs and Issues / Re: Find in Project Browser for Diagram
« on: June 05, 2012, 06:52:50 pm »

a month ago or so I reported a bug.


Bugs and Issues / Find in Project Browser for Diagram
« on: June 05, 2012, 05:48:41 pm »

some releases in the past I could navigate from Model Search Result list in case it's a Diagram or a Connector to:
  • Diagram (Browser and open Diagram)
  • Connector (only open Diagram and select connector)

Now the two entries in the Context Menue are gray.

With a query which return Diagrams or Connectors it was a very convinient way to open diagram or select the connector in the diagram.

Kind regards,

the example model shipped with EA provides an example.

On the SPARX homepage, Resources, All demonstrations you find the example: Simulation and Prototyping (


Uml Process / Re: Insert Object in Information flow
« on: July 31, 2014, 02:21:54 am »

as far as I know it isn't possible to add objects to information flows.

Advanced, Information Items conveyed

you can add classifiers such as Classes, Actors, Activities,.. to the information flow.

Be aware: Maintaining conveyed classifiers on information flow isn't a well supported feature of EA.


Uml Process / Re: <<signal>> in EA
« on: July 25, 2014, 03:19:45 am »

you can add attributes to <<signals>> in UML as well as in SysML.

Just type F9 when your block is selected. Make sure that you see attributes (Diagram properties).

By the way: What do you mean by Properties? Author and so or just Attributes.

Inheritance should work in SysML as in UML. I haven't seen any difference.


Uml Process / Re: Class Operation Behavior and Activity Diagram
« on: February 25, 2014, 12:49:29 am »

you link the operation to an activity which is specified by an activity diagram. This is done in the operation properties by:
- Behavior
- Element
- Select Activity

If you want to use parameters in the activity diagram than use the same name and type as in the operation.

I have made an addin to automate this by:
- Create Package for Behavior
- Create Activity
- Create Activity Diagram
- Place Activity and Initial Node on the activity diagram
- Add the parameters to the activity
Last and not least I have a function to update the parameters of the Activity from the operation.


Uml Process / Re: Multiple State Machine Instances
« on: July 13, 2014, 03:21:17 am »

try the SPARX webinar for EA11 and simulation statemachines. The example shows two instances of a class and another class with 1 instance.


Uml Process / Re: [SysML] Activities
« on: July 10, 2014, 05:13:14 pm »

usually you simple drag and drop an Activity from the project browser on the canvas of a bbd. Be sure to use the activity as a link and not as an invocation/instance.

You may also create a new Activity from the toolbox. Make sure the Activity Toolbox is shown (More Tools, Sysml.., Activity). There are also other ways to create a new Activity in a bbd (e.g. Quick Linker, or blank key).

In EA/SysML you usually see no SysML frame.

I think you could put is this way.

Parameter is the specification what is possible to pass and Pins specifies what is passed in the current context.
