General Board / DAO.Recordset [3077] error: XML Schema import
« on: August 20, 2015, 12:27:00 am »

I starting using the Schema composer and XML Schema import features as I need to import XSD files (not generated with EA).
As I had error messages, I created my own XSD using the Schema composer (using Rodrigo's blog

When I run an XML Schema import from the EA generated XSD, I still get the following error:
DAO.Recordset [3077]
Syntax error (missing operator) in expression.

I'm using the latest 1215 build from EA12 with an EAP file.

General Board / Multiple configs in Cloud Services
« on: August 15, 2015, 01:11:24 am »

I've been trying setting up multiple configurations in the Cloud Services.
I have 4 EA projects defined in the Cloud Service client app e.g. projects A, B, C, and D.
I set up a conf for Project A where SSL and Model authentication are enabled.
I set up a conf for Project B where a Global authentication using Project C users is enabled.
I set up a default conf for other projects.

I copied below a sample of my SSCloudServices.config file.

Perhaps I haven't properly understood the goal of the Cloud Services dealing with multiple configurations so I need some clarification.
I expected Project A to be solely accessed from the Cloud Service via port 812 with an https + model authentication.
However if I use a different port e.g. 810, I can access Project A on http without any http authentication. Also port 812 makes it possible to use https for other projects.
It looks to me that that DEFAULT_MODEL doesn't restrict a conf to a specific model, however this is not consistent with Sparx description :
DEFAULT_MODEL allows a single model to be exposed on a port, making it possible to use a different port for each model.

Any advice will be useful.

Code: [Select]
# default
# Project B
# Project A

General Board / Migrating EA project to a new DBMS
« on: June 25, 2015, 07:11:03 pm »

I need to move a very large EA project currently shared via a DBMS to a different DB server.

I wonder if there's a better option between the following:
1- Data Transfer DBMS to EAP, and transfer EAP to the new DBMS schema (this has been tried and prompted a duplicate Index error, perhaps due to a Jet Engine limitation)
2- Data Transfer DBMS to DBMS (from the old to the new schema) -> this seems reasonable provided both servers are accessible from the same PC
3- use the DBMS backup/restore (e.g. MySQL dump), no EA required.


General Board / UML profile : stereotyped BPMN Data Object
« on: January 10, 2015, 03:49:34 am »

I would like to define a stereotype on BPMN2 data objects.
I started creating a UML profile: I created a metaclass in which I chose the Stereotypes tab, selected BPMN2.0 and DataObject.

I created a "test" stereotype with a dummy tagged value, linked via a Generalization link with the DataObject stereotype.

Unfortunately when generating the UML profile, this stereotype is not exported/seen.

Is there any way to extend BPMN2.0 stereotypes? (same actually applies to SysML, etc.)


General Board / List of connected users on a shared EA Project?
« on: June 11, 2015, 07:54:34 pm »

When using a shared EA Project on a DBMS with the Security enabled, I cannot find any way to see who else is logged in the project (I'm limited to the current locks in the model which is a different information).
Is there any plan in making it possible for users to see who else is logged in?


General Board / Import XPDL2 into EA
« on: June 05, 2015, 04:50:55 pm »

I'm looking for a tool to import XPDL2 files (generated from a workflow engine) into EA, as it currently only support XPDL2 export.

A company called BPM-X appears to have developped such tool, although I haven't found it from their website.

Has anyone tried BPM-X or another tool to successfully import XPDL2 into EA?


General Board / Import relationships from Excel via a matrix
« on: March 27, 2015, 09:07:26 am »

I created a relationships matrix of requirements versus processes.  I need to create each relationship with an overlay (e.g. CRUD) using data that's been provided in Excel.

It would be nice if a relationship matrix could be exported and completed in Excel e.g. via a CSV file, before being updated back into EA.

Is there anything that could achieve this out there?


General Board / Link a note to a BPMN sequence flow
« on: March 25, 2015, 08:10:33 pm »

I've defined a process using BPMN2 with conditions on the sequence flows. I use Notes attached to the connector to display the existing condition as an alternative to the use of the label. Notes are easier to see and to place on the diagram.

This can be achieved by enabling "Link to Connector Tagged values".
Unfortunately this option displays all tagged values as well (e.g. condition type = Expression) where I only need to show the test in the "Name" field of the sequence flow.
Would it be possible as an enhancement to have the option "Link to Connector Name" ?


General Board / Slow access to a large DB shared project
« on: March 06, 2015, 10:13:30 pm »

I'm looking at the options available in an attempt to improve slow access to a very large EA project that's shared via a centralised DB (no SVN):
1- install a WANOptimizer
2- install a cloud service
3- run DB optimisation (?)

First, is there any difference between using a WANOptimizer or a Cloud Service for LAN accesses? Has anyone got an experience in seeing improvements from using either tool on a LAN?

When an EA project becomes really large, is there any improvement that can be obtained via DB optimisation in the DBMS itself?


General Board / C# forward engineering with FW classes (System.xx)
« on: January 20, 2015, 03:09:51 am »

I'm looking for an advice to deal with dotNet classes such as System.Exception, System.Enum, etc. with EA C# forward engineering.
I set up my design model with the namespaces and C# implementation classes. I then run a forward engineering that generates the initial code.
How can I get a number of classes (not all of them) to have the following generated:
using System.Exception;

Do I need to create somewhere system classes associated with my class (having the option not to generate code for these classes), or is there an easier way to go about this?


General Board / Support Active Directory Groups in Security
« on: December 22, 2014, 07:24:19 pm »

With EA security, you can import users from an Active Directory into EA.
Could AD groups support be added so we don't have to import each user?

This would also save time when you have to do this for several EA projects.


General Board / Change default security key
« on: November 20, 2014, 02:30:04 am »

To enable the security on a project, a key provided by sparx must be entered (format : GUID).
To prevent a user that knows this key value for all EA project, I guess we can update this key in the project's DB? In such case, any hint on where it's stored to update it?


General Board / OLE DB duplicate key value error
« on: November 19, 2014, 01:12:26 am »

We've got a project on SQL Server + Version control. Users have a shared access running Checkouts/checkins on controlled packages.

They've experienced the following OLE DB error message : cannot insert duplicate key row in object dbo.t_operation with unique index UX_operation_ea_guid. the duplicate value is...

As it currently stands, all the class operations have been lost in the project, despite the fact that these operations exist in the controlled XML file.

Is this issue related with a DB config issue (e.g. in the SQL scripts to generate the tables), a use of the version control (some users run a Get Latest), or else?
Would it be recommended and safe to run a Project DB Integrity Check?


General Board / EA10 and EA11 on the same project
« on: November 18, 2014, 07:21:28 pm »

Sorry if this question has been asked before (I cannot find a relevant thread though).
We're working on a shared EA project (stored on a DBMS + SVN) where most users have the latest build of EA 10. A user has upgraded to EA 11.

Is there any risk in updating the shared EA project with EA11 :
- when it will be accessed by others users with EA10?
- when it will be accessed and updated by others users with EA10?
- does it make any difference when the user works on controlled packages (SVN), or on uncontrolled packages ?


General Board / matrix overlays on BPMN activities/pool
« on: October 28, 2014, 06:24:26 pm »

I need to define CRUD or similar categories between BPMN activities and pools or lanes that contain them.
An activity located under e.g. a pool doesn't lead to an association so I don't have any way to apply a matrix overlay onto it. If I start creating dependencies between activities and pools or lanes to apply the overlay, these relationships show up on the diagrams (and this leads to additional work to maintain those links up to date, either manually or via a script).

I can't think of a workaround to achieve what I'm looking for. Any suggestion?
