Bugs and Issues / MDG Searches not showing up in a shared EA project
« on: November 17, 2015, 12:42:51 am »

I have an MDG that embeds a UML profile, toolbox, diagram type, scripts, and custom searches.
When I import the MDG on a shared EA project (MySQL), I can open the MDG searches, however other users cannot.
The MDG is imported to the model so it's not specific to a user.

Having run a few tests, it appears that the MDG searches are only visible to the last user who imported the MDG. A colleague imported the MDG -> I could no longer see it whereas he could.

Hence, it looks like a bug to me.

I'm using EA 12 build 1512.


Bugs and Issues / Debug C# console app : invalid win32 application
« on: August 28, 2015, 07:57:18 pm »

I set up an Execution Analyzer script to build & debug a c# console app. However when I run the debug, I also get the following error:
Error creating process: %1 is not a Win32 valid application.

I'm running .NET v4.0.30319 but I also tried with older FW.

Is there any workaround?


Bugs and Issues / Re: Group Scripting type lost in MTS/MDG
« on: July 17, 2015, 04:56:30 pm »

Any chance the scripting types could be supported in the MDG for a future build?
I currently have to separate my scripts (diagram, package) from my MDG as the type is not preserved.

Tested it in EA12 build 1209 ; it hasn't been fixed :(

Hi Helmut,

Thanks for your input. I'm giving it a go at submitting this as an enhancement request ; it would be nice to able to encapsulate Diagram Scripts with other items in an MDG.

Bugs and Issues / Group Scripting type lost in MTS/MDG
« on: July 09, 2014, 10:14:21 pm »

I've created a Diagram Script in a new Diagram scripting group.
When I export this script in an MDG (using an MTS file), and import it in a separate project , this group is shown as a Normal group, not a Diagram group.

This looks like a bug

Bugs and Issues / Failed BPMN XML export
« on: May 28, 2015, 11:25:37 pm »

I'm attempting to export a BPMN model (diagram + nodes) using the BPMN 2.0 XML format. For this project, Activities have been documented using the "Linked Docs" so we currently have a rather large amount of data in the DB.

The XML file that's produced is only 1KB with the following content:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="windows-1252"?>
<bpmn:definitions id="EAPK_A431E0CA_4860_4305_BDF5_B180510055C1" targetNamespace="" xmlns:ssbp="" xmlns:bpmn="" xmlns:xsi="" xmlns:di="" xmlns:bpmndi="" xmlns:dc="" exporter="Enterprise Architect" exporterVersion="11.1.1113"></bpmn:definitions>

I wonder if the Linked Document information interferes with the export module.
I tested it with EA 11.1 (1113) as well as the latest EA12 build with the same outcome.

Any idea?


Bugs and Issues / SVN Version control issues
« on: October 16, 2014, 07:38:25 pm »
I'm aware that many people have dropped and discourage using SVN + EA due to a number of issues.
As I have a number of customers that need the "Undo Check Out" feature to roll back, and since EA security feature doesn't fulfil this need, I currently have to keep this configuration. (if someone has identified an alternative to VC that provides a rollback/undo feature, I'm interested!)

I was wondering if there is any recommendation to avoid the following issues when using a central DB (SQL Server) coupled with SVN:
A number of users have experienced a desynchorisation between SVN and EA i.e. we can end up with an empty controlled package that cannot be checked out since the SVN lock remains on the repository, yet not seen by EA. Hence I have to run an EA/VC resync, followed by an undo check out so it all comes back to normal.

Worse case: a user had a number of uncommitted changes in the central DB and a desync between EA and SVN occurred ; the package was locked in EA so he could no longer update his package. Running a resync from a different user reloaded all data from the XMI and deleted the uncommitted changes !  :-/ I take that this would have been prevented if it had been run from the same user.

What is Sparx view on these ongoing issues between EA and VC repositories? Is there anything planned in this area?


Bugs and Issues / BPMN2 glitches
« on: October 09, 2014, 01:29:34 am »

I found two glitches on a BPMN2 diagram:
- I'm showing the events and activities on the subprocess itself (there's no composite diagram) and I often get the option IsExpanded re-enabled when I move things around (when I want to leave this disabled)
- I copied the diagram to a word document with an event triggered subprocess (triggeredByEvent = true) i.e. it's got a dashed border -> the rendering in the pasted image contains errors


Bugs and Issues / Re: Search results with Packages : issue
« on: July 30, 2014, 09:52:28 pm »
Thanks Helmut. I wasn't sure I could use "classtype".

I managed to get it to work and published my user defined search alongside an illustration in the following article:

Bugs and Issues / Search results with Packages : issue
« on: July 25, 2014, 11:34:42 pm »

I've created a custom search (SQL) using the Builder.
here is a simplified version to test :
SELECT ea_guid AS CLASSGUID,  name as Package from t_package

I use CLASSGUID so that EA can find my Package in the Project Browser.
However when I right click on a result from the list, Find in Project Browser is disabled.
This is odd since the keyboard shortcut Alt-G works... I can also access the Package's properties when I double click onto it.

Is this a bug?

Bugs and Issues / EA Crash with Postgresql project
« on: July 12, 2014, 12:14:28 am »
One of my customers needs to move an EA project to a PostgreSQL DB (Linux server).
The DB and tables have been created, ODBC connector installed (psqlodbc_09_03_0210) and configured (as per Sparx instructions), and a connection has been defined with EA.

When connecting from EA, the following pop-up screens come up :
1. Database Connection Error : reopening connection to database
2. Enterprise Architect has experienced a network error and will shut down.

Finally EA shuts down / crashes.

As I successfully set up an EA project on a Linux PostgreSQL DB before, I'm running out of options on getting this one to work.

Any hint on what might be going wrong here?


Bugs and Issues / Re: VC Check Out deletes elements from diagrams

Thanks, I'm looking at your suggestion.

Bugs and Issues / VC Check Out deletes elements from diagrams
« on: June 18, 2014, 08:34:18 pm »
We're working on a large EA project hosted on a SQL Server DB, coupled with an SVN repository.
Elements are stored in a different package tree than diagrams. When I run a check out on the parent controlled package where both elements & diagrams are stored, I often get elements removed from my diagram (the link between elements still exist) !
This seems to be a result from a number of operations done by EA by comparing the XML content with the db content during the Check Out.
This can damage users confidence in the tool due to unwanted modifications on the model when running a check out.

Is there any recommendation to prevent this scenario?
