General Board / Questions on RTF Reporting
« on: October 04, 2012, 02:18:15 am »
Hi all

I am facing some difficulties in RTF reporting that seem to be very stupid, but I have not been able to overcome:
1. How do I change the format of the Page Number (for instance, to arabic)
2. How do I create cross-references to diagrams so that they can be converted to "Figure 1", "Figure 2", etc. in the final document when referred through the document?

Would someone have a clue?

Thanks in advance

General Board / Relationship Matrix  embedded in rtf reports
« on: November 12, 2007, 07:38:19 am »
Hi guys

Is it possible to embed a relationship matrix in an RTF Report? I want to print an RTF report of a package which would have, as the content of a chapter, a relationship matrix.  
I have tried some weird approaches, like:
- Insert a linked document with a picture of the matrix.
- Insert a linked document with a matrix got from an RTF document created from the csv.

Does anybody know of a more intelligent way to do this?

Thanks a lot

General Board / Tabular interface for requirements?
« on: August 28, 2007, 04:55:33 am »
Hi

I found this text in a press link inside Sparx Site:

"Users may now quickly enter requirements and edit lists of elements in a new tabular interface or rapidly capture states and transitions in a new State Table editor."

This text is in the page at http://www.sparxsystems.com/press/articles/ea70.html

I could not find this "new tabular interface" to enter requirements. Does anybody know how can it be accessed?

Thanks in advance

Hi all

I could not find a way to search for bookmarked elements with the new EA 6.0 search interface.
Would any of you have a clue?

Thanks in advance.

General Board / Upgrade to 4.0 in corporate
« on: March 24, 2004, 04:04:41 pm »
Hi!

I read from a previous post that when an 3.60 EAP file is opened with the EA 4.0, it is converted to version 4.0, and so the older version will not be able to open it anymore. Of course, it will open the backup version. In the very worst case, the people using version 3.60 could export packages and other elements to be imported into 4.0 version until everybody had the new version of the program.

What happens with the corporate edition, when there is a central database keeping the repository? The first 4.0 version program that access it changes the database? Is there any kind of backup that could be accessed by the people using version 3.60?

Thanks in advance

General Board / Synchronization Question
« on: March 11, 2004, 09:44:48 am »
Hi, folks

I have imported some code into EA. However, I changed the code and its localization. When I ask EA to synchronize the classes with the code, the program asks me if it is ok to synch from the file at the old location.

How can I tell EA that it has to synchronize code and classes from another location?

Thanks in advance

General Board / Automation Help
« on: August 21, 2003, 07:53:23 am »
Hello

I am facing some difficulties with Automation with EA, specifically when trying to work with Borland C++Builder. At the Automation Readme.pdf there is an example with Borland Delphi 7.0. Although the behaviour for setting up the project is nearly the same, the creation of the objects in the code is something hard to realize, and I could not do it up to now.

Would any of you have a clue or an example of how to start coding for automation in EA with C++Builder?

Thanks in advance

General Board / Documentation with EA
« on: April 03, 2003, 09:36:12 am »
Hi

We intend to keep all documentation inside EA, but we are facing the problem that most of Edit fields, where we intend to fulfill the information, do not understand RTF, and so the generated documentation will lose a lot of formatting.
The second problem refers to the approval mechanics necessary for ISO. We can generate the final docs and approve it, but it is a paper and time-consuming process. We used tagged values for verification and approval, but the process seems to be something awkward yet.
Does anybody have faced these kinds of problems and find any solution that could be shared?

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Bugs and Issues / Master Document and Filtering elements
« on: October 26, 2012, 07:39:21 am »
Hi!

I am developing a complex RTF document, composed of a Master Document and several Model Documents, with different templates.

I am facing a problem that can be best viewed in the EA 9.3 EAP file archived in TestDoc.rar reachable by http://sdrv.ms/PtSzzp. There are two views in this project:
- Model (which contains a node with two children components)
- Documentation (which contains both a Master Document and a Model Document)

In the Resources tab, there are two RTF Documents, each corresponding to either the ModelDocument (named DocTest - RTF Document DOCTEST_RES) or the MasterDocument (named MasterDocTest - RTF Document MASTERDOCTEST_RES).

Well, what is pursued is to create a report where the node named "NODE SHOULD NOT APPEAR" (in the model) really does not appear in the document, but ITS CHILDREN COMPONENTS DO, immediately below the package "JUST ANOTHER TEST".

To do this, in the dialog box "Generate Documentation" (which can be reached by right-clicking the corresponding RTF Document in the Resources Tab) the following settings were applied:
- in the tab "Generate", set "Include all Diagram Elements in Report"
- in the tab "Advanced", set "Hide note-less elements", "Hide <Anonymous> elements" and (very important) "Include child elements even if the parent element is filtered out".
- in the "Element Filters" tab, it set a filter to include only elements where "Keywords" is not equal to "INVISIBLE".

In the model, the Keywords of the node element "NODE SHOULD NOT APPEAR" really contain "INVISIBLE". So, I was expecting this node to be filtered out when generating the RTF, but NOT the children components.

Well... it works ONLY when the RTF is generated directly from the Model Document, but it DOES NOT WORK when generating the RTF through the Master Document, and its settings (via MASTERDOCTEST_RES) is the same used for the Model Document.

So, I am expecting some help with it, as I could not find any hint on the documentation about this.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Uml Process / Yet another Metamodel topic
« on: February 23, 2008, 11:46:27 am »
Hi, people

I am trying to extend UML in order to make EA able to represent an ad hoc methodology. Initially I thought of using a profile to do that, but as far as I know, Profiles are used to restrict UML semantics, which is not what I wanted. I wanted to represent elements with different semantics from that of UML.

So, I tried to create a Metamodel. I followed the basic steps in the help files and threads in this forum and created a Metamodel, at least with part of the metaclasses I needed.

Well, so I wanted to test this metamodel. However, I am really unsure about how to do that. Should I create a Profile based on the Metamodel, such that I could create stereotypes with specific shapes? If so, how do I make my Profile Metaclasses understand that they are extending my metamodel's classes? I have some guesses (please don't laugh...):

1. I read in some previous posts that the Metamodel should be exported as MOF and imported as a Profile (in the Resources tab). Is this the correct procedure? This seems strange to me, as the formats are rather different and, conceptually, these are different things.
2. Technically, the Metamodel could be exported as a Profile from the Project Browser and then imported as a profile in the Resources Tab. However, once my Metamodel does not carry stereotypes, this is useless, as the classes themselves are still not available for the metaclasses of the final profile.
3. I thought that it could be possible to drag and drop into the Profile's class diagram a link (or should it be an instance?) of the class in the metamodel and force it to have the <<metaclass>> stereotype. Does it make sense?

Maybe these doubts are very basic, but I am really stuck on them. I think that I am missing something and I feel that a little help could make this job go ahead quickly.

Any help would be very appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Uml Process / UML for structured programming
« on: June 08, 2007, 09:11:44 am »
Hi all

We are currently getting into an aerospace development, more specifically a satellite subsystem. Although our project manager wants the software programming to be coded as structured, we would like to be able to specify and design it using UML.
The main reasons for that are:
1 - There are few people that understand notations for structured real-time specification and design.
2 - There are few tools that are able to help with structured methodologies in a complete framework as EA does for UML

So, the question is:
Do you know any kind of UML-based process that could be used to specify and design a structured program as a result?

I think that the higher-level diagrams could be used without change (e.g. deployment, component, use-case diagrams), as well as some lower level ones (e.g. Activity, Sequence). The main problem, from my point of view, remains on how to represent the software modules themselves, once classes could not (conceptually) be referred at this level.

Would any of you have any idea or have you faced this before?

Thanks in advance

Uml Process / Doubts with Composite, Ports and so on
« on: June 28, 2007, 04:05:36 am »
Hi all

I am trying to use a Component Diagram to model the architecture of a software item. I would like to do it with a Composite Component Diagram, as I don't think that the internals of the software item should be visible all the time. I wanted to be able to hide them and be able also to structure the related documentation in a better way. So, I guessed that the Composite Component Diagram would suit.

The problem is that I am not managing to reach some kind of understanding or know-how regarding to the way that the boundaries are related from the parent diagram to the child one. This is simple if I do it all in the same diagram, but as the number of levels get higher, the diagram gets too cluttered.

For example, if I have a port with an exposed interface at the parent component, which is delegated to and internal level, how do I represent this in the child diagram? How do I keep consistency from the parent component to the child ones, if they are in different diagrams?

I think that this seems to be a very basic question and I realize that I may be missing something. However, I have bee struggling with this for some time and would appreciate very much any kind of help.

Thanks in advance

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Difficulties with Export
« on: January 30, 2008, 07:32:29 am »
Hi

I am suffering some problems trying to export a package to XMI through Automation Interface.
I use the call to ExportPackageXMI available from the Project interface. When I start the VBS script, an EA instance is started and, right after this, the well-known XMI Export window is open and the exporting process starts.
Well, nothing wrong with it. The problem is that I can't make the "Enable Full EA Roundtrip" checkbox to come checked by default. I thought it was due to the the XMI Enum Type used, but I tried the xmiEADefault, the xmiEA21 and xmiEA20 unsuccessfully.
I also thought that a possible combination of "Export diagrams" and the XMI Enum Type would work, but nothing different happened. Under all situations, the checkbox is clear and EA exports the package with the UML 1.3 format.
Would anybody have a clue about it? I am using EA Build 818 with a SQL Server repository.

BTW, is there an automation call to execute Data Transfer (from Database to File)?

Thanks in advance

Ronaldo Juliatto
