1. You can synch the stereotypes one at a time by right clicking in the tool box on the element and selecting synchronise stereotype.

2. Renamed tags will be added as new tags to existing stereotypes. The old tags will remain. You'll need to write your own script to copy the values and delete the old tags.

Maybe those features might come after they have finished on pro cloud. V13.5 beta is out but no supporting material to say whats in it so may be, just maybe its in V13.5

General Board / Sparx EA V13.5 Beta
« on: May 19, 2017, 07:19:56 am »
Great news - I received an email from Sparx Systems about pro cloud release and Sparx EA V13.5 Beta.

- Build web and mobile friendly navigation diagrams for web ea users to navigate your model easier
- create formal reviews and manage review process from EA
- specify the elements in a review
- join colleagues in the discussion
Lots more ...

I've down loaded the V13.5 beta and I've looked on line to find out more about "lots more..." but can't find anything. 
I guess the supporting material is not ready yet. Not even a mention on the forum

Even Libre Office has a ribbon
Think you'll find thats a tool bar not a ribbon - no tabs. Sparx has toolbars too and a ribbon.

Sounds like  you on top of it. Interesting to hear what crossover say.

You have a couple of options.

a) set up the SQL DB to access using a user name and password rather than single sign on AD credentials then you'll be prompted for those credentials each time you access the DB. This might well be the easiest.

b) Get your mac to join the Windows Domain. Some articles on line but not sure if they work as haven't tried.

Hope that gives you some leads to try.
Do let us know if you do solve using option b)

Found using the diagram legend -> Apply auto color, works just fine so don't use a script anymore as  its a lot faster on the larger diagrams.

Vaguely remember having the same problem about  6 or 7 years ago. Might be able to do it via jscript/vbscript and the API. Some things to try;
a) Re-synch the stereotypes or
b) Set the stereotype value using stereotypeex using jscript/vbscript and the API.
c) Export to CSV then import guid, name, object_type and stereotype fields preserving the hierarchy.
d) Try making copy of respository and change the column(s) via SQL.  Usually I create a new object to see what the columns are populated so I have a half decent chance  of making mods to the DB correctly.

Sorry can't remember the details of how I fixed it- too long ago. Hope that provides some ideas you can try.

Possible because its .NET and the API can be accessed by it but not a good idea. ASP.Net is meant to run on a server. The Sparx EA API is part of the client that is designed to run on desktop/laptop. You could install Sparx EA on a server to make the API available to the ASP.Net. Just because you could doesn't mean you should. If you did you are like to have some performance or scaleability issues.

You might have to wait for Sparx Systems to release the pro cloud and web EA products.

He want's them to appear in the "Insert Related Elements" dialog. This is a valid request and I'd suggest to ask for a new feature.


Right. So a work around would be to create a Project browser JScript/VBScript that goes through the project tree and creates real composite relationships between the child and parent packages/objects.  Then you'd would see them in the insert related elements. You'd have to put a check in to make sure you don't duplicate the relationship when the script is run again later.
Simple aye?

General Board / Re: Adding Memos as a MDG
« on: May 03, 2017, 09:21:45 am »
No. That only works for <memo>. You can try it manually (type <memo> in the TV value).


Well that's just typical inconsistency isn't it?

Shame that by setting the type on attribute in the stereotype in the MDG you can't specify date, memo, spin etc just to be consistent.

@KP Now thats interesting to know. Does it work for dates too? For example just set the initial value to '<date>'

When the objects, packages or diagrams are created the parent relationship is created automatically and stored in parent_id in the relevant table. If you need to change where the object, package or diagram is located its simple to drag and drop to another location in the project explorer.  Users don't have to fiddle with SQL just drag and drop just like they do with windows file explorer. Kind of confused about what you are trying to do or what your problem is.  ???
May start at the beginning and state what you think the problem is and what you are trying to achieve.

Suggestions and Requests / Re: Status for connectors

Sounds like a good idea. Theres been a couple of times I've needed that status on connectors too.

Here is how I do it.
1) Create tagged value type via config tab>Reference Data>UML Types like so
Name: MemoField
Details: Type=Memo; BaseStereotype=Class;

2) In your MDG stereotype add attribute with these details
Type: MemoField

Where <MDG_ID> should be the ID you have for your MDG.
Note the the name has to match the UML Type name for this to work. The type doesn't seem to have any effect but I set it so I can figure out what it was.

3) When generating MDG select the UML Type MemoField to export into the MDG file.

Its a bit of a pain that you have to define a tagged value type for each attribute even though they may be all of type memo but that's how Sparx EA works. Hope that helps.
