General Board / Re: Maintaining mapping from current to future state
« on: July 11, 2018, 08:53:45 am »
BTW.: This as-is/to-be has been discussed here more than once (I know that searching for it is a PITA especially with those stop words; however, give it a try). Basically, you will find that there's no silver bullet for it. As in Dusk til Dawn try holy water and crossed shotguns.

General Board / Re: Association direction shown incorrectly in matrix

You need to use context Advances/Reverse Direction. Or write a script.

Ah thank you!  :)

Is it possible to figure out which connectors are truly connected to other ports/or "hanging in the air"?
Based on the elementIDs it should be possible to find recursively the connection between them?

Thanks,
Connectors "hanging in the air" do not exist. A connector has always two ends.

Suggestions and Requests / Re: Link instantiazation
« on: July 09, 2018, 07:38:36 pm »
That's the case in all EA versions. A link is an instance of an association and you show it at will to highlight something (like in SDs you are using instances to show a certain behavior). So having these decoupled is not just legit it is a must.

Haven't tried, but a template package comes to mind.

This is the most modern YABB. Place a photo on a public server of your choice and use the picture icon (2nd row left).

You might want to look into eaDocX.

Bugs and Issues / Re: Copy / paste a port from a block to another
« on: July 05, 2018, 11:22:31 pm »
I was thinking of dragging a port from the browser. Just like you can do with attributes/operations which creates a new copy in the other class. But for ports that does not work. Might be worth asking for a feature extension here.

You can not copy that as new port. Embedded elements can only be copied to their parent. You need to create a new port instead.

Never thought of doing that export yourself with an add-in? I did that for other reference data in the past.

The main difference between ARIS and EA is that EA is based on UML while ARIS is based on it's proprietary language. The latter isn't bad at all but well established. But it's proprietary. You can model ARIS with an appropriate profile even in an UML tool (but AFAIK you have to design that profile on your own).

I can't speak for/against IBM since I don't know it.

Look at github projects from  Geert Bellekens and Helmut Ortmann. You should find lots of examples there.

A) I think that Execute just permits INSERT, UPDATE and DELETE. You probably want to do that with a native RDBMS tool.
B) the problem will be the export. EA ex-/imports only its own tables in XMI format. You would need to merge your table separately.
