General Board / Re: How to import visio data flow diagram into EA
« on: May 30, 2018, 12:05:22 am »
Make a screen shot and place it in EA's image library. Visio is a drawing and not a modeling tool.

General Board / Re: Adding attributes to MDG stereotype element
« on: May 30, 2018, 12:04:18 am »
I don't get it. If you drag your stereotype from the toolbox you will tagged values, but no attributes. Eventually you can look into Patterns which can also be included in a MDG (not sure about creation of attributes right there).

Why do it the simple way if you can go through a variety of ODBC and native drivers instead?

Binary data are (usually) a zip with a single file encoded with base64.

@qwerty - seems to be missing from your Inside EA book.
Well, it's in my Shapescript book :-)

General Board / Re: How to get a connector without an arrow head

There's also some General Setting (no EA at hand momentarily) which allows to default to (non) directed associations.

It appears that this is not (or no longer?) an empty model, but the example model. "Views" is just the root. Remove all of the views inside "Views" manually. Rename "Views" to "Root" (or whatever you like) and run a Project/Data Management/Manage .EAP/Compact. That will give you an empty template. (Basically for the model transfer these steps are not needed as the transfer will replace the entire model.)

KP stated above where to find the file.

Open a project with the new Jet4 format (to be sure: copy the .eapx to somewhere). Now open the old project. Choose Project/Data management/Project transfer (or search for it with this ribbon stuff in newer EA versions). Perform the transfer to the .eapx. Close EA and dbl-click the .eapx. You should now have a Jet4 formatted database.

General Board / Re: MDG on V12+++

That's like upgrading from Windows XP to Windows 7  :o
I'm still on XP and don't miss anything. It's just a carriage to run EA.

It does make you wonder if Sparx has anyone ...
I wonder about a lot more that they obviously don't have. Or even what they have and should not.

Ah, Geert is right. That was the essence. In other words: it's a feature. And hoping for a change is futile.

General Board / Re: About Domains

You can define primitives, but not structured datatypes, for languages and databases. It's sort of rudimentary stuff and by far not comparable to what DB modeling tools offer in that direction. However, there are ways to deal with that in other ways (which means you introduce meta-layers where you can handle that stuff with UML elements and the help of a MDG).

Bugs and Issues / Re: Synchronise Stereotype via API odd behaviour
« on: May 24, 2018, 07:08:32 pm »
Strange. TVs are usually not referenced in t_xref, only the element stereotype itself. Probably it would be best to contact Sparx support. They can look into your model (provided you are allowed to send them a copy) and find out more.

I doubt that this will have changed in any further version to V12. There have been a few threads dealing with style inheritance along with MDG extensions. You might send a bug report to see what Sparx says (it might end up in "this is a feature, not a bug", though).
