General Board / Re: Baselines
« on: March 02, 2016, 01:09:25 am »
YMMV

A model represents a current view about a system, i.e. how people think it should develop in the future. Baselines are about the past. Nobody is interested in the past state of a system. So what could a baseline be used for? I can imagine only one use case: "Uh! We ran into the wrong direction the last months. Let's start over from this and that baseline". If you have the money to independently branch a baseline and develop those lines to finally select the best one (remember "A Novel About Project Management." by Tom DeMarco?) that would be also a use. But that's fiction.

q.
Baselines are not just about the past, they are also about the future. If you have an As Is architecture to be transformed into a To Be architecture. The As Is architecture is a baseline as they will be any intermediate architectures before the Target architecture is reached.
In this respect a baseline is essential to understand the impact changes are going to have in the baseline.

General Board / Re: ModelView column width
« on: March 01, 2016, 10:00:25 pm »
If you are referring to the model view on the dashboard toolbox then yes. Right click on the model view in the diagram and select 'Edit List View' then you can change width. After that right click and click 'exit edit mode'.

Hope that helps

I was indeed referring to the model view on the dashboard toolbox and this is the answer I was looking for. Thanks for your help.  :)

What do you mean with how to manage package baselines?
What menu items you have to press, or what are package baselines typically used for and on which package level,?
Not too worried about menu items, I am after best practice guidance: how to structure a complex project? how many pacakges? any issues with using packages within packages? how to lock previous baselines? and so on.

Could somebody please point in the direction of some good resources on how to manage Package Baselines?

Thanks

Is it possible to change the width of the columns on a ModelView? If so, how?

General Board / Re: Class Diagrams: Association End Owned by a Class
« on: February 03, 2016, 08:36:33 pm »
Not entirely sure what you are trying to achieve with this, if you have a class called Person with 3 attributes: Fist Name, Last Name and Date of Birth. Are you trying to display this class in a diagram with 4 boxes - 1 Person, 2 First Name, 3 Last Name, and 4 Date of Birth - and an 4 associations between boxes 1 (Person) and boxes 2, 3 and 4 (with a dot at the end)?

AFIK, the only way to do this with EA is to create 4 classes: Person, First Name, Last Name and Date of Birth. AFIK, there is no way to achieve this with a single class.

It will be nice to be able to do it.

Although your registration has expired you can report that officially as bug (link bottom right) and see what comes out.

Please refer to the following thread http://sparxsystems.com/forums/smf/index.php/topic,30190.0.html. Macros in SQL queries work fine in searches but do not work in Model Views.

I am using version 12.0.

I will report it as bug in 12.0, pity I cannot upgrade to 12.1, my 12 "month subscription" run out recently and no longer have access to registered users area.

See http://sparxsystems.com/forums/smf/index.php/topic,30194.0.html.

The query is meant to go on a Model View element and not in a search. The error happens on the Model View on version 12.0.

The query runs fine as a search but I do not want it there.

Of course nothing is that simple with EA, the following query results on an error

Code: [Select]
SELECT t_object.ea_guid AS CLASSGUID, t_object.Object_Type AS CLASSTYPE, t_object.Name, t_object.Status, t_object.Stereotype, t_object.Author FROM t_object
WHERE t_object.Package_ID = #Package# AND t_object.Object_Type = 'Class' AND Stereotype IS NULL ORDER BY t_object.Name

The error is Invalid column name '#Package#'.

P.S.: I am running version 12.0.

In the model search you can use
Code: [Select]
and packageID = #Package#to select elements form the package selected in the project browser.

In case you want to query something that is in the selected package, or one of it subpackages recursively you can use
Code: [Select]
and packageID in (#Branch#)
Geert
Do I need to replace #Package# and #Branch# with anything? Or,  are they parameters?

To eliminate the duplicates I would need to add to the WHERE clause a condition that filters the current package. There are multiple packages in the project containing different baselines and the query should be specific to each baseline and not global.

And if you only want Classes and not other element types you use
[code
WHERE (Stereotype IS NULL OR Stereotype = '')
AND Type = 'Class'
ORDER BY...[/code]

Geert
This what I am looking for but the query returns duplicates, just looking into why this the case.

I suspected this was the answer. Let me ask the question in a different way, if I want to write a query to get into a ModelView the list of evert element that is a class -  i.e., has a blank stereotype - how do I write my WHERE clause below

SELECT t_object.ea_guid AS CLASSGUID, t_object.Object_Type AS CLASSTYPE, t_object.Name, t_object.Status, t_object.Stereotype, t_object.Author
FROM t_object  ORDER BY t_object.Name
WHERE .......
