General Board / Re: backward compatibility EA 11
« on: July 08, 2014, 06:57:26 am »
OK i explain better my configuration.
I have a RDBMS created with V10 and several cliente that modify it via V10. Can i connect to the Database with my V11 and modifying it?
The metamodel between V10 and V11 didn't cvhange?
There is not possibility to corrupt the model?

The only issue you may have is if you create something that is only in V11 like dashboards then any V10 clients won't be able to render it. Other than that it should be okay.

General Board / Re: stop code generation

The only suggestion I have is to move the class outside of the package tree you are generating. i.e. put them in package called "Don't Generate"

General Board / Re: Script Table
« on: May 21, 2014, 12:18:01 pm »
Think I've figured this one out. There are scripts and groups in the t_script table. Creating a group creates the GUID in the ScriptName column. When a script is created the Group GUID in ScriptName is used to  populate the ScriptAuthor column.
So in short there is no way to identify the author of any script.  :(
Fortunately for me there is a correlation between the group and the author so I can make that connection.  

General Board / Script Table

We have a central repository (oracle) with lots of vb and javascripts by various authors and I need to create a report that identifies the author so we can start managing migration.
When I looked in the t_script table I found a column called ScriptAuthor that has GUID's in it like {5E08D22F-FBF6-4a91-95FE-3C93713AF09F}. Can any one point me to what the GUID's reference in the from the column ScriptAuthor in t_script table.

I really like the changes to document generation in V11. Being able to select cover page, table of contents, style sheet and diagram styles is just a great improvement. The icing on the cake is being able to generated docx format direct instead of rtf.
Well done Sparx  :)

General Board / Re: Data modeling
« on: April 09, 2014, 06:26:13 am »
I've seen people use different diagrams for data modelling in Sparx EA, namely class diagrams, data modelling diagrams and ERD. Usually with class diagrams and data modeling diagrams you can see the attributes when you add them so not sure what is causing your problem. However I have seen some one use an ERD and add attributes to the entity rather than as separate nodes as the notation dictates. They couldn't see the attributes and seem surprised until I inform them they aren't using the notation properly. Just a thought - your not using ERD diagrams are you?

General Board / Re: Oracle 11g serious slow performance issues
« on: May 21, 2012, 07:23:57 am »
When investigating any problem you need to take into account all the factors and figure out the root cause. It sounds like you've investigated the DB and found nothing so far so may be have a look at the network. May be apply a Kepner Tregoe problem solving technique to help you figure out what is the root cause. If you've debugged windows apps before you'll know there are a load of performance counts you can enable on the client machine. Try having a look at that and create a log of using the MySQL DB and compare it to similar activities using Oracle. If you find some evidence its the network latency/lag to the DB then consider re-architecting your deployment. For instance consider having a local DB which replicates to your offsite DB.

I've known a colleague in another company use databases on remote sites and the performance was awful. They moved to having a local DB and the performance increased dramatically. Think it was MS SQL they used.

Well hope that helps - good luck

Thanks - appreciate the response.

General Board / Business Decision Impact Analysis
« on: April 03, 2014, 08:23:18 am »
Looking at the V11 RC1 page in the diagramming section I noticed a diagram called "Business Decision Impact Analysis". I've downloaded V11 RC1 and searched through the help and diagram types but can't see any reference to it. Does any one know anything about it?

You could simply just not put them on the diagram  :)

General Board / Re: Are Virtual Master Documents on their way out?
« on: February 21, 2014, 07:21:13 am »
I like the new changes to the Document Generator. It provides a better and more flexible framework for creating docs. I will still use master documents as my clients often want documents with sections with different layouts/formats. A case for example mentioned before is the requirements section is often in tabular form and the architect part often uses diagrams with sub-headings to explain the elements.
I'm currently working for a client that has a need to generate a document with about 12 different sections all formatted in different ways.
So in answer to your question I don't think Master Docs will disappear from my radar for a while yet.

General Board / Re: Is there a way to export scripts?
« on: February 19, 2014, 12:32:10 pm »
If you're after the automation scripts written in Javascript, JScript or VB Script  you can use
Project | Model Import/Export | Export Reference Data
and tick automation scripts

I'd be interested in the fix to this problem too as on occasion its occurred on some of my diagrams when generating RTF docs.

General Board / Re: Roadmaps, anyone successfully used EA to roadm
« on: July 26, 2012, 07:16:37 am »
I use the Archimate 2 notation to create roadmaps. This is how I do it;

1) Create the roadmap diagram with Archimate 2 implementation and migration diagram

2) Create a matrix in the diagram with columns showing the time such as quarter year and rows showing some kind of stream/programme of work such as HR, Finance or whatever.

3) Create the roadmap activities using the Work Package by dragging the Work Package from Achimate 2 Implementation and Migration toolbox.

4) Put the title in the name field, the description in the notes field, Set status to [Concept|Approved|Implemented], I use the Phase field to store the time the work package is due i.e. 1Q2012. I use requirements to specify high level requirements and the complexity field to give me an order of magnitude of size. I put a unique ID in the alias field and set up the diagram to show both the name and alias.

You can also use the Files to link to documents to things like concept papers, business cases etc.

If you have any other data needs you can probably add tag values or use constraints. For instance estimated cost.

I use triggering relationship in Archimate to show any dependencies between the workpackages.

I recently imported the achimate 2 mdg into the model and changed the shape script to change the colour to reflect the status automatically. I now have a roadmap that show the status via colouring the workpackage.

Well hope that helps   :)

Took me a while but found that post from Phil regarding the solution. For those who need it please find it here
