General Board / Re: IU too slow in 5.00.765
« on: June 03, 2005, 03:41:25 am »
Sounds like good news :)

In case you are still after some configuration information then this is the setup I'm using:

EA V4.51 format repository hosted in MSDE instance on a server. Server is Celeron 1Ghz with 1GB RAM. SQLServer instance is used exclusively for EA. No interactive users of server. Server hosts a small SourceSafe DB and nothing else.

Client from LAN is running on Dell PWS530 dual P3 Xeon 1.5Ghz with 1GB RAM. EA is latest version. Ping times to server < 10ms. OS: Win2K Sp4
Client from VPN is P3 1Ghz with 512MB RAM. Internet connection 1024/256 ADSL. Ping times to server average 40-50 ms. OS: Win2K Sp4

I also have a feeling that the 'UI' is a bit slower with V5 so I will add a reply to your post! In my case I'm using the Corporate edition on top of a remote SQLServer (MSDE) database. This is sometimes across a VPN which would obviously exacerbate any 'change' in speed.

It would be great if Sparx could investigate and/or confirm/deny this.

Thx in advance.

I've seen this type of behaviour before. Never worked out what the steps are to get it to do this and more importantly, stop doing it!

In my case the code generation has pulled in a 'using' for a package that [from what I can see] is not used. I have to edit the generated code manually to remove it :(

Been using EA for 2.5 years and have found it provide excellent value for money. It has its fair share of annoyances but so do all products. Basically there's no need to spend huge sums of money on overrated product just 'cause they have larger names in the industry. If the subject comes up I always recommend EA and thus far everyone has been immensely impressed.

Good luck

Constructor/Destructor provision is controlled by Tools->Options->Generation->Object Lifetimes.

You'll find the recent list in your Registry:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Sparx Systems\EA400\EA\Recent File List

If you don't feel safe editing the Registry, don't :)

General Board / Re: Delphi code generator creates too many methods
« on: July 25, 2004, 05:05:39 pm »
That's cool 8)

I remember Rose used to mark each method with a unique id which. I assume, it later used in code gen process.

General Board / Re: C# Custom Attributes
« on: July 19, 2004, 03:17:05 am »
The default CGT's provide for this already. Just add a Class/Interface level tag named:
 Attribute
and give it a value of:
 [MyCustomAttribute()]

General Board / Re: Licensing for large site
« on: July 06, 2004, 05:22:46 pm »
EA is provided as an MSI with a stub loader that sorts out the Windows Installer dependencies (I wish they would just ship the MSI which would cut the download size by quite a bit!).

Anyways, you'll find a copy of the actual MSI in:
%CommonProgramFiles%\Wise Installation Wizard
The MSI file for 730 is: WISCC98E8B3FAAA4D09A813A44C9FA1A3EE_4_10_730.MSI

You (or your IT dept) could then create a tranform (MST) which is applied to the MSI on installation (just think of an MST as like an answer sequence). As it's a standard MSI there are many tools/services out there that will facilitate remote installations (SMS, group policy in AD, etc.). If you want to discuss this further then just shout.

I don't remember off hand but I don't think the license key is required during installation ??? It's been a long time since I installed a fresh copy! From memory I seem to remember the 1st thing that EA does is ask for a serial key. The serial key data is processed and ends up in a file (key.dat) in the EA installation directory.

Best of luck!

General Board / Re: Generate Postgresql DDL?
« on: July 02, 2004, 12:18:08 am »
I'd not manually update the tables but rather recommend an export of your old model which can then be used to import into a new model. This should get you a new set of base definitions with your old model.

Load up the old model.
In the Project View, right click on Views
Select Export Model to XML
Populate dialog as you require.
Create a new model
Right click on Views
Select Import Model from XML

I've just tried it on a rather large model (15MB XML output) and it seemed to import without issue.

I haven't needed to manually add/modify anything for it to appear in my list.

One thing does spring to mind... is this an old model file or a brand new one? I'm 100% sure but I'd expect that the EAP file (assuming you're not using a remote repository) will only contain the types from the EABase supplied at a particular version of EA. So, if Sparx add/change things then a program update will not [necessarily] update the EAP. Having, I've been using EA for around 2 years now and that have needed to run a DB update between a couple of the versions.

If it's an old project, create a new one and see if the DB list is more complete. Open the EAP up in Access and look at the t_datatypes table for ProductName entries relating to PostreSQL. If they don't exist, open the EA template file (usually EABase) you used to create the EAP and check for the same entries.

Finally, the EA help file shows the same list content as I have:
mk:@MSITStore:C:\Program%20Files\Sparx%20Systems\EA\EA.chm::/dbmsdatatypemapper.htm

You'll find the topic:
Modeling with UML -> DataModelling -> DBMS Datatype Mapper

Hope that helps!

PostgreSQL support as a DBMS back-end repository which means that EA supports PostgreSQL for the purposes of storing a UML model.

I'm running Build 730 (V4.1) and I do have PostgreSQL in the drop down list of a table.

General Board / Re: SQL Server Problem
« on: July 01, 2004, 11:56:02 am »
Not sure I understand your last post. You can indeed use EA to be an ERD tool. It can forward or reverse engineer a DB schema. The forward engineer is through the creation of SQL scripts that contain the dialect of SQL DDL for use with the chosen DB engine.

None of that has anything to do with your connection problems. Please explain what you want to acheive and you'll get some answers.

If you are asked again for a password, it suggests that the OLEDB client cannot authenticate with the SQLServer instance. If this is the case, I think you'll find that it is actually asking for the SA password to the DB you specified.

This is exactly the same scenario I have when I VPN in to work. The SQLServer instance is setup for Windows authentication but as I'm a VPN connected client my client credentials are not good enough. However, I use the SA password - which is not the default blank ;) when I'm prompted for the password and connection to the repository is fine.

As for getting the error "Invalid Object Name: usys_system"... this means you've *not* chosen a SQLServer DB that contains an EA repository. You need to create the repository structure 1st or perform a data transfer EAP->RDBMS before you can use it!

Hope that helps.
