General Board / Attribute Qualifiers
« on: April 19, 2010, 07:03:17 pm »
I have noticed (new to EA 8.0?) that it is possible to create a Qualifier for an attribute in a class.

Some of the properties of this Qualifier are

Redfined Property
Subsetted Property

Can someone explain in plain language, what is the use of this feature, (great if supplemented with a practical example).

Help and User Guide not much help as it just states "The Qualifiers dialofg is used to define the Qualifier of an Association connector end, Port, Part, or Attribute"

Cheers

General Board / SysML Parametric Diagram Simulation
« on: December 09, 2009, 02:20:55 am »
Does anyone know if it is possible to output text values (rather than numeric) when simulating a SysML parametric diagram?

When I display the graphical output, all is well except any output with a text value is not displayed.


Here is the script

var determinant = (b * b) - (4 * a * c);
if (determinant < 0) {
      roots = "Complex roots";
}
else {
      roots ="Real Roots";
      rootA = ((-1 * b) / (2 * a)) + (Math.sqrt(determinant)) / (2 * a);
      rootB = ((-1 * b) / (2 * a)) - (Math.sqrt(determinant)) / (2 * a);
}

roots rootA rootB are all visible on the Simulate Diagram dialogue

Cheers

General Board / SysML Parameteric Diagram Simulation
« on: November 20, 2009, 11:15:50 pm »
Please excuse my ignorance, but in the SysML example contained within EAExample.eap there is a SysML parametric diagram which can be simulated.

This is driven by scripts attatched to ConstraintBlocks.

One of the ConstraintBlocks is Delay which has the following script:

output = input.GetPreviousValue(delay);

I assume that the script language used in the example is VBScript. Where is the function GetPreviousValue() defined?

I cannot find it in VBScript language, apart from some references to spinner controls.

I can see what the function does, but cannot see where it is defined.

If it is a function that is part of some library, then what else is supplied in EA?

I have searched the EA User Guide and the internet to no avail.

Thanks!

General Board / Hiding the stereotype
« on: May 21, 2009, 01:47:17 am »
I have implemented a UML Profile with elements that extend Class

I have defined the attributes that will become tagged values for the stereotyped class and all is well and good.

When the profiled classes are used, the stereotype assigned to them obviously appears on all diagrams and I can see the benefit of showing the stereotype, but what can I do if do not want the stereotype to appear?

There appears to be no way to turn off the visbility of the stereotype, is that so?

I did think of creating a shapescript, however by doing this I loose the ability to manipluate the compartments (none are available). Is it possible to obtain the compartments from the native shape? I cannot see this in the User Guide section on ShapeScripts.

Cheers

General Board / Network Error
« on: April 20, 2009, 06:49:16 pm »
A fellow user of EA has encountered a problem when making a connection to a SQL server database

A local EAP file needs to be transfered to a SQL DBMS and the database and scripts have been run. A connection between the host machone and SQL server is attainable using SQL Server Management studio and windows authentication.

When the connection is attempted within EA, "Test Connection" succeeds, but the next step fails with

"Enterprise Architect has encountered a Network Error and needs to Close" (or very similar wording)

It does not appear to be an authentication problem since the DB can be accessed via SQL Server Management Studio ...

... any ideas?

Cheers

General Board / SysML values compartment for Blocks
« on: February 18, 2009, 10:06:50 pm »
Hi All

Hope this is the right board for this post

In SysML it is possible to expose attributes of a block instantiated to <<valueTypes>> in a compartment called values

Is this possible in EA's SysML add-in? If so how?

At the momment I am modelling as standard attributes with a <<values>> stereotype

Cheers

General Board / EA, Subversion and TortoiseSVN
« on: July 26, 2008, 12:57:48 am »
I am attempted to configure version control using EA, Subversion and TortoiseSVN.

I have configured the conf file in the httpd folder of subversion as

<Location /svn>
   DAV svn
   SVNParentPath C:\svn_repository
   AuthType Basic
   AuthName "Subversion repository"
   AuthUserFile passwd
</Location>


I have setup passwords for users in the SVN repository passwd file and have set [general] section of the svnserve conf file as

[general]
anon-access = write
auth-access = write
password-db = passwd
# authz-db = authz
realm = On-Line Store

The idea begin that I want packages to be checked out via authentication

When configuring the package for version control, there were no problems, but when I attempt to check the package out, EA just hangs (the dreaded hourglass) whilst attempting to retreive the xml file.

It is as if EA is waiting for authentication (just as if I check out the file using TortoiseSVN) but no dialog requesting authentication is visible.

Any ideas?

Cheers

General Board / Upgrade Trial version with Corporate License
« on: July 18, 2008, 11:33:15 pm »
Am I correct in assuming that if someone has a trial version of EA and then they purchase a Corporate Floating License, then after installing the License Server and licenses, the trial version will upgrade automtaically, either by requesting a license or the license server pushing the license out?

If not, are there any special procedures necessary.

Don't use floating license myself, but one of my clients is in the process of purchasing EA, hence the query

General Board / Running EA under Citrix
« on: July 11, 2008, 06:03:36 pm »
Hi All

Is there anyone out there how has experience in running EA under Citrix? Specifically, the setup and using a coporate shared EA model with EA under Citrix.

Any advice or pointers to information would be most appreciated

Cheers

General Board / Model Validation
« on: May 21, 2008, 07:52:48 pm »
With the model validation facility, is it possible to define your own rules for use with the model validation tool?

If so how are these rules specified?

Thanks and cheers

General Board / Tab Colours
« on: April 18, 2008, 07:27:21 pm »
This maybe a dumb question, but how do you set the tabs in EA views to be colour coded? Seen coloured tabs on some of the EA video demos

Is this a EA feature or Windows?

Cheers

General Board / EA and Borland Startem
« on: March 07, 2008, 02:10:50 am »
Has anyone tried successfully,  or unsuccessfully to use EA with Borland Starteam for version control?

If you have had success, what would be the best approach?

My initial thought would be to export packages (under version control) as XMI, version control in StarTeam, and once checked out, import them into EA.

General Board / Export to XMI
« on: April 23, 2007, 10:22:18 am »
Hi  All

Has any user had any success with exporting an EA project to XMI and then importing to a different UML tool?

I have numerous requests to import EA models into Borland Together 2006 R2 for Eclipse and nothing works.

I export using no diagrams, UML2.0(XMI 2.0) and no EA roundtrip and no EA tags.

Upon import into Together it simply fails mostly messages such as Type is not a valid classifier.

I have tried just using a simple use case with two actors and two use cases to try and narrow down the problem.

I have created the same model in Together and exported that to XMI (it does not import into EA!) and compared the "supposedly" standard XMI files. They differ in very many respects.

Any advice on the way forward, or is XMI not cracked up all ite is meant to be.

Bugs and Issues / Model Views Problem
« on: January 22, 2015, 10:36:52 pm »
Hi All

I am attempting to create a Search Folder using Model Views, but when I attempt to set the search, the drop list of searches only shows those in Built-in, none in My Searches

The search I have created (its in SQL) works correctly, and is visible in the Search View.

Oddly, when clicking the ... button adjacent to the list of searches, I can see all My Searches ...

The same behaviour in EA v 10, EA v 11.1 and EA v12 RC2

The end result is I cannot assign a custom search to any search folder in Model View

Any advice?

Cheers

Phil

Bugs and Issues / BPMN 2,0 Sib-process and Boundary Event
« on: January 10, 2015, 02:52:48 am »
Using EA version 11.1.1113

When an Activity is made in a Sub-process the usual symbol (the cross in a square) appears, however when adding a Boundary Event to this Activity, the Sub-process symbol disappears!

Even deleting the Boundary Event does not make the symbol re-appear, nor does changing the tagged values.

Other symbols like Loop are OK

In addition for Abstract Activities, adding a Boundary Event makes the text jump to left top, instead of centre centre

If the Boundary Event is added first, then setting Sub-process in the BPMN 2.0 tagged values has no effect, ie no sub-process symbol

Anyone else noticed this?
