Uml Process / Re: Link Use Case with Requirement
« on: August 12, 2009, 02:06:49 pm »
In the Help, the topic that Dermot was quoting from has the section heading Connect on Diagram. It sounds as if you are applying the instructions to two elements in the Project Browser - in that case you do indeed move the Requirement to become a child element of the Use Case.

Your Use Case should be sitting in a diagram that you have displayed. Click on the Requirement in the Project Browser, hold the mouse button down and drag the Requirement onto the diagram and over the Use Case. Release the mouse button.

To see the Realize connector, you can add the Requirement to the diagram, or look at the Require tab of the Use Case Properties dialog, or look at the Relationship Matrix for the package or packages containing the Use Case and Requirement elements.

Uml Process / Re: SPEM activity stereotype

The description has been added to the SPEM topic for build 847.  However, Archimate uses the same tagged value for the same purpose, so you could look at the existing Archimate page for a description.

I can't help with your main query, but we might be able to clarify your closing question about Diagram Frames. However, can you let us know what release of EA you are using?

I think your gut is correct - you are not creating (or using) Diagram Frames as designed. A Diagram Frame is a special kind of Combined Fragment that provides a picture (or just the name) and - more importantly - a hyperlink to another diagram. You create them by dragging the referred-to diagram onto your current diagram, and selecting the appropriate option (a frame with picture, a frame with name, or just the name). What are you using them to represent?

You might be able to use a Combined Fragment (which it looks like you might already be doing for the opt state section of your diagram) or a System Boundary (which is a conceptual frame around any part of the diagram you want to enclose).

I can't - at the moment - see anything wrong with your use of the Diagram Frame, but I'm playing around with it to see if anything suddenly complains.

Uml Process / Re: Reverse Engineer - Create Class Diagram

Ummmm - I am reliably informed that the Relationships window (View | Relationships) is the quickest and simplest of the windows to use, especially with a large model.

You could regard that as the tabular equivalent of using the Add Related Elements menu option, though it probably provides the most information in the most-easily-read format of all the options.

You have a number of options. The simplest is to double-click on the Class element to display the element Properties dialog and select the Links tab.

You could also drag the Class element onto a dummy diagram and select the Add | Related Elements context menu option. This adds the Class's related elements (and their connectors) to the diagram.

Or, you could click on the Class element and select the View | Hierarchy menu option, to show relationships of various selected types (click on the Hierarchy window toolbar icons to select the relationship types).

The Relationship Matrix will show you relationships of a specific type, according to the values you select in the drop-down fields at the top of the window.

You should be able to find information on these things easily in the Help, using the index or search.

A Dependency.  Use Case B is dependent on Use Case A.  You can read about this connector in the UML Dictionary section of the Help, and also flick through the other connector descriptions quite quickly.

Uml Process / Re: How can i diagram stored procedure?
« on: September 16, 2008, 09:14:26 am »
Use a Data Model diagram. Read about these and Stored procedures in the EA Help, Data Modeling section.  You can find the topics on stored procedures very quickly using the index.

What release are you using? Whereabouts in the Help is this reference to the Tool | Options | Generate menu option? You are right, it doesn't exist, and there shouldn't be a reference to it. I can't find it, but it might be in an older version of the Help.

Uml Process / Re: Analysis diagram - objects/classes
« on: June 27, 2008, 10:25:30 am »
OK, the Help was wrong.

As Paul found, the Analysis diagram Toolbox page creates Boundaries, Controls and Entities as stereotyped Objects. EA used to offer the choice of creating the elements as stereotyped Objects or stereotyped Classes, but now defaults to Objects.

As I mentioned earlier, you can easily create them as stereotyped Classes by creating a Class element and applying the appropriate stereotype. And as Neil mentioned, you can get the Toolbox elements to insert stereotyped Classes by defining them in a Profile.

Sorry about the confusion. I have corrected the Help - changes visible in the next release.

I can't comment on the Toolbox Boundary, Entity and Control elements at the moment, but to create these as stereotyped Classes, drag the Class element from the toolbox onto the diagram and, in the properties, set the stereotype to boundary, entity or control. You might have already done this for the Entity?

Uml Process / Re: setting SysML Perspective (for toolbox default
« on: April 09, 2008, 03:53:00 pm »
Hello Owen

Enterprise Architect from release 7.0 no longer uses perspectives. We have yet to update the MDG Technology For SysML Help.

To acheive the result you want, enable the Add-In for SysML and make it the active technology (select it in the field in the Default Tools toolbar). This adds the SysML Toolbox pages to the Toolbox as the dominant pages.

If you have normal EA or another MDG as the active technology, You can also select the SysML Toolbox pages from the More Tools menu (at the top of the Toolbox) and pin them to the Toolbox, if you want other pages to be available too.

Try looking at:

Look at the note at the end of this topic.  Also look at the parent topic (The Enterprise Architect UML Toolbox) and follow the links to MDG Technologies and UML Profiles, for broader information.

I hope this helps you.

Uml Process / Re: Circle notation for interfaces
« on: February 13, 2008, 09:18:08 pm »
No, I'm sorry Paolo, but Figure 7.55 distinctly shows the interface ISensor (ball) attached to the Classifier ProximitySensor (rectangle). On page 88 (in my copy of the spec, probably 90 in yours; I have the 2007/02/05 edition) there are illustrations of the alternative notation of the interface ISensor, i.e rectangular notation (figure 7.57) with your expected dotted-line realization.

Uml Process / Re: Circle notation for interfaces
« on: February 13, 2008, 07:51:54 pm »

What it DOESN'T say is that the actual Realization edge is also drawn as a solid rather than dotted line.  This makes it look like an Association.

On that statement, I would have expected the edge to remain dotted.


And another quote from page 87 of the UML Superstructure Specification (2.1.1):

"The interface realization dependency from a classifier to an interface is shown by representing the interface by a circle or ball, labeled with the name of the interface, attached by a solid line to the classifier that realizes this interface."

We will change the Help sentence to finish with "are drawn as a solid line without target arrows."

Uml Process / Re: Non-unique indexes
« on: November 11, 2007, 03:35:20 pm »
I notice in the help that they refer to the Columns tab ... does that actually mean the Parameters button?

Also, I don't see any Unique checkbox when using the <<index>> stereotype so does this mean I put something in the post condition?

Are you using this procedure?

There is a specific Columns tab on the Operations dialog, and there is no Unique checkbox.

If you are creating a table (as in

and then you define table columns (as in )

Then you display a Table Columns dialog, which contains the Unique checkbox.

Note that there is no Column element in the Toolbox in EA Release 818 - you access columns only as attributes of the table. Also, the procedure refers to the Table: Attributes dialog, but it is now the Table: Columns dialog.

I can't find the Parameters button in this context - which dialog are you using?
