General Board / MariaDB ODBC settings
« on: March 23, 2016, 03:24:13 am »

We use a MariaDB to store an EA project. Where MySQL ODBC driver works ok, I was wondering if anyone had tested the MariaDB ODBC driver.
I ran a simple test and I'm getting an Invalid Data Source... Check configuration error.

Any recommandation from Sparx?


Suggestions and Requests / EA12.1 windows help file
« on: March 11, 2016, 07:26:50 pm »

Since version 12.1, EA help is published in the web format. Whilst it lets you have access to an up to date version from Sparx website, the search feature is not as convenient as before.
The local version is a local copy of the web site.

Would it be possible to have the option to download a windows help file (CHM) so users can have this interface?


General Board / Default data type in a new Code Eng. Language?
« on: March 11, 2016, 03:04:19 am »
We defined a custom Programming Language via the Code Engineering Data Type feature; a new Product Name "test" has been defined with a number of Data Type e.g. Integer, String, Bool...
When I create a class with Language = test, I have the associated list of Data Type in my attributes window.

However when I add an attribute without selecting the data type, I always get "int" as the default data type which does not belong to my Product.
With built-in languages, there is a working default data type.

I exported the Model Data Types as a reference data and looked at the XML, but couldn't find any property to set a Data Type as default.

Any hint?
Also, how do I delete a Product I no longer need?


Suggestions and Requests / Resize a virtualized connector
« on: March 08, 2016, 03:14:01 am »
I used the Virtualized connector ends in a class diagram and noticed that the virtual representation has the same width as the virtualized element. Would it be possible to add a feature so these can be resized in width (and height if possible)?
It would be nice also to be able to change the background and line colors.


I'm working on an addin for the  Schema Composer and installed a few to test. I noticed that only one is visible in the Schema Set drop down when creating a new Schema Profile.
I couldn't see my addin in the list so I uninstalled an existing custom Schema Addin which fixed the issue.

It looks like a bug to me.

Bugs and Issues / UML Collaboration diagram modified order after edit
« on: February 13, 2016, 01:57:31 am »

I created a UML collaboration diagram with around 20 messages exchanged between 8 objects.
I defined a specific order using the "Sequence Communication Messages" window.

When I add a new message and move it in the appropriate order, the order of existing messages get mixed up. This requires me to review and amend the order accordingly.

I'm using the latest build of EA 12.1


Bugs and Issues / RAS model update: duplicate key GUID error
« on: February 11, 2016, 09:48:13 pm »
I'm getting the following error when importing a new version of a centralised model from a RAS server:

I ran a comparison after the import and this attribute doesn't show up (nor it class). This seems to be a bug.
Note that my EA project is running on a Postgres DB.

From this comparison, I also noticed the following bugs following an import:
- diagrams Date created and Date modified are not correctly updated -> the imported diagram's time is set to 00:00:00 hence leading to a difference with the RAS.
- generalization links' Style field have an extra Hidden=0 value in the Baseline

General Board / XSD transformation: attribute mapping
« on: February 10, 2016, 07:58:07 pm »

I'm looking into XSD related EA features to identify the most efficient way to achieve the following: define a UML class to transform to an XSD model, and generate the schema (XSD or JSON file) with the Schema Composer.
I can't figure out the mapping of attribute types between UML and XSD ; is there any information available on this?

I created UML classes with Language = None ; this does not seem to be appropriate since the number of attribute types is limited.
e.g. I'd like to define a UML class with an attribute which will transform in an XSD element "Year" of type xs:gYear.


Suggestions and Requests / Derby DB reverse engineering support
« on: February 09, 2016, 11:40:20 pm »

I need to run a DDL reverse engineering on an Apache Derby DB which can be accessed via JDBC. I believe there is an ODBC available to access this DBMS.
Is there any plan to support DERBY databases in EA?


General Board / Local RAS package version?
« on: February 02, 2016, 03:30:17 am »
Is there any way to check the package version + storage, as defined in a RAS repository, that matches an imported package in the EA Project?
I cannot find any way to check the version that has been chosen by the user who carried the import using RAS. Am I missing something?
If this is not supported, could we simply have a Tagged Value or other property in the imported package (or model root) that stores such data?


Suggestions and Requests / Cloud Connection list
« on: February 01, 2016, 11:23:55 pm »

When using the Cloud Connection dialog to access a RAS, I always get the last RAS Cloud Server. When several RAS servers are used, it's quickly a pain to change the Name + url + Model name.
It would be nice to have the ability to define a list of Connection details to each server that's often used (or automatically have access to the last 5 servers opened from a local PC, for Cloud or RAS purpose).


Bugs and Issues / Random order on the versions in the RAS Registry Browser
« on: February 01, 2016, 10:32:53 pm »

I started using the RAS and I've quickly come across some odd behaviour with the registered packages versions; the order of the versions displayed in the drop down list was initially random. Then I updated the Cloud Service to v1.1.10.0, and versions are sorted by Registered Date/Time. Yet I haven't seen this bug fix in the readme file.

It seemed to be ok until I change the version naming convention. EA selects the version with the "greatest" value, instead of selecting the last one in the list.
v1.0 --> selected
9.1 --> latest (should be selected)

I have an other comment on the versions drop down list: you have to click on the version to activate the drop down list. This could be improved from a UI perspective so it's available when selected.

Suggestions and Requests / Add tagged value support to Info Views
« on: October 08, 2015, 02:01:34 am »

I'm defining a custom template using MDG and I may have an interest in using the Info View in some diagrams where I need to display Tagged Values (as defined in the stereotype).
New EA12.1 Info View visible properties is limited to a couple of fields. Would it be possible to add Tagged Values?


Suggestions and Requests / Context filters bound to a diagram
« on: September 01, 2015, 06:15:44 pm »
I often use a mindmap diagram for demo purposes in EA, setting it as my model default.
By having the context filter enabled, it shows where we are before moving to or coming back from other diagrams.
However once you enable the context filter, it applies to all diagrams.

It would be nice to have an option to bind a single context filter on all diagrams (current behaviour), or bind one context filter per diagram where it's been enabled.

What do you think?


It would be nice if we could define the nominal scenario i.e. main path in a BPMN diagram e.g. by setting the line colour on all nodes and flows in green.
An enhancement in Enterprise Architect would involve letting you choose and update a single path amongst all alternatives to define as a main path (EA could create a TV on all links & nodes to apply a dedicated colour. As you expand the diagram with additional nodes, EA would automatically assign new nodes to the main path.

What do you think?
