General Board / Re: how to link to diagram in model documents
« on: December 07, 2015, 11:00:58 pm »
This is exactly what virtual documents are used for.
And using your "Detail" is what I was discussing about, because this is what your proposal was.

That's why I would like to have answered the question instead of giving other Solutions instead.
First I want to have a answer to my Problem, second, maybe I am interessted in other Solutions or Workarounds
avoiding useless time to discuss.

And now I am back at my starting question:

Is it possible to link diagrams to packages?

Hello Geert,

your first reply was about generating virtual documents based on a selected diagram.

That means that the virtual document follows the packages used from the diagram. so the chapters are called like the packages where the diagram "links" to.

the sequence of the chapters is than more or less arbitrary. This is not a predefined structure.

Hello Geert,

your solution with the linked diagram in the diagram is not a solution, because during document Rendering, the notes from the link object are taken, but not the notes from the linked diagram.

That means, that still the notes have to be copied from original diagram into link object.

Hello Geert,

of course there are reasons. A couple of reasons.
The main reason is, that the document structure is predefined in customer SW development processes, which have to fullfill certain Quality Standards for FDA or TÜV aproved processes.

That means the document structure follows the SW development process templates and the content will be provided copmponent wise having planty of diagrams, linked documents, etc. comming from existing ea models. ea model contains separated models for System and subsystems

So your Approach is fine for small projects, but not for those industry hardened Projects, where documentation follow more or less
the chapture structure provided by en iso's like 13485, 14791, 62304 etc. and not vice versa by the model and the Content of a diagram.



the tool has to Support the process and not vice versa.

Hello Geert,

thank you for your answer.
I am not sure if you have read the initial context of my question

It's about having diagrams in the generated documentation.
Doing it in the way you describe, what the customer gets is
a diagram showing a frame of a diagram.

This is even worse than copying, because in case of copying the customer gets the Information he wants, with the additional effort of creating copies, but it works. Your last proposal is not working at all in this context.

Best regards

Hello Geert,

thank you for your answer.
Interesting that you know that I am not asking the right question.

Sorry, but i exactly ask what I want to know.

There are boundary conditions which lead to this question.
Boundary conditions are not relevant, because if my question is answered with yes I do not need any other solution.

The question is still not answered.
I am not interested in other solutions, right now.

So here is the question again:


Is it possible to add a link to a diagram into a package?

Best regards

General Board / how to link to diagram in model documents
« on: December 03, 2015, 07:31:56 pm »
Hi
our customer is using virtual documents.
they have ea model packages containing the model with the SW artifacts  itself
and in parallel to it
documentation packages based on master and model documents.
The model documents are linked to a package structure which is defining the document chapters.

Fine so far.

What they do now is copy the diagrams from the SW artifacts packages into the document structure packages.

Of course this is cumbersome if the diagram changes.
All changed diagrams have to be copied again.

Is it possible to link a diagram from the artifacts packages into the document chapter packages?

Thus the copy wouldn't be needed.

Thanks

Hello,

OK, I found some hints here about custom code Generation:

http://blog.lieberlieber.com/2012/11/05/a-custom-uml-state-machine-c-code-generator-in-600-lines/

This is a good starting Point.

Nevertheless, if someone has some ready to use solution, we would be interested.

Thank  you

OK, thank you.

Has somebody to the  description of the code Generator and how to adapt it?

Thank you

Hello querty and thank's for your answer.

I am not looking for concepts.

I am looking for existing Commercial or non Commercial solutions.
We would be able to generate our own UML profiles and define such new stereotype meta classes. That is not the point. The point is if somebodey already knows an existing product or if not, has already done some state machine code Generator Adaptation, so we can generate such "function block"-similiar code snippets.

Thank you

Hello
and thank you for your answers.

Yes, I am talking about Siemens Automation stuff like S7.
And yes, it is not object oriented, but EA is not restricted to OOD.

The idea is to model state machines and to generate SPS code out of it.
Do you know about existing UML profiles or code Generator adaptations or similiar stuff?

Thank you.

Hello,

has some of you ever had the problem to generate code for Siemens Automation SPS controls?

Are there Add-ins available?
Have you adapted the code Generation process for those Automation scripts?



Thank you and regards

Hello Luis,

thank you for the link, but this is not for real professional working.
It's fine for introduction, but not when you go deeper.

This links should be extended by sparx with some valueable documentation. The current ones are not realy worth reading it.

Does other guys know more detailed papers?

General Board / Better Doc's for some EA topics
« on: November 04, 2011, 11:38:14 pm »
Hello,

the documentation regarding EA automation object model, RTF document generation and how to generate code and adapt code templates for code generation from state machines are a bit rude or let's say not very verbose.

Does some of you guys out there know some better documentation sources?

Thank you
Mr. Sanders
