Name the first 9 tests 01 to 09 - does that help?

That set of instructions looks very old.

I'm not sure how many of the recent changes impact on use of the MDG Integration for Eclipse, but try this:

In EA, select the Extensions | Manage Add-Ins menu option. A dialog displays that should list Eclipse; make sure that the Load on Startup checkbox is selected. Restart EA, and click on the Extensions menu option; Eclipse should now be listed.

If this doesn't make sense, it might also be that the available menus have been re-set. Select the View | Workspaces and Commands menu option, and select the Commands tab on the resulting dialog. Make sure the Complete option is selected. Click on the OK button and check the Extensions menu option again.

If that doesn't help, contact Sparx Support directly and ask for their assistance.

Have a look here:

Read 'Eclipse' for 'Visual Studio'.

You can also find more detailed product descriptions on the Products pages of the Sparx Systems website.

Sam, I'm not sure that you realise that you are addressing other users such as yourself. The people who are trying to help you are not Sparx Systems employees, and have no obligation to respond to you. This is a USER forum and Sparx employees only join it on a casual basis - again, they have no obligation to respond to users through this channel.

Please contact Sparx Support for assistance in resolving your problem.

SaZ, if you have not already done so, I think you need to contact Sparx Support, either with a Bug Report (use the link in the Support column at the bottom of this page) or as an email to

Other members of the community are having an active discussion of your problem, but it looks as if you are not finding it easy to understand them. Get Support to help you.

Perhaps check the Document Options of the report or, if you are using a template you have created, the report template.

For the report, open the Generate Documentation dialog (click on package, press F8) and click on the Options tab and look at what is set in the Packages By and Elements By fields.

For the template, click on Settings | Document Template Designer: select the template and in the Content panel right-click and select | File | Document Options. Check the same fields as before.

Does that help?

It was a good idea, quite a while ago!

I have just made a small amendment to the Work with MDG Technologies topic, but the Manage MDG Technologies topic already describes an Active technology as being the default technology for the model.

Your confusion arises purely from Paolo's response - as does mine, actually! Your words are perfectly correct.

No , I think Paolo meant that he stood. That is, was erect. To be standing = to be erect. That sort of play on words.

If you want to confuse anyone, speak or write English. Maybe we should all speak Nederlandse instead?

Are you sure Aaron's link isn't what you need?

Half way down the topic is the sentence:

"You can also use the _defaultDiagramType attribute for packages, extending the Package metaclass."

You would call in the diagram type you have created?

Some of us provide ad hoc comments on this user forum that (we hope) help people with difficulties they might have. But this isn't the channel for support requests. If you want a Sparx employee to look into a problem, please submit a bug report to Sparx Support, using the link in the Support column at the foot of the screen. Thanks!

Thank you. I'll pass your comment on to my Sparx colleagues, who all work hard to make the Help as accurate and useful as possible.


It is strongly suggested in the Help that User Security is a prerequisite for Workflow Scripting, but not categorically stated.

I have now updated the Help to include (amongst other things) the statement:

Workflow Scripting is an extension of User Security, and requires security to be enabled in order to function

I think the incantation is "upgrade to release 9.0, build 904", but you can add your favourite flourish of the wand if you like. That build is when that option was introduced. However, the option is not documented (yet) - next release, I hope.

It just copies the diagram as a single image into a PDF file in a location of your choosing. You might have to manipulate the image and/or print properties in the PDF file to get it to print out within the page margins.

In the EA Help, the documentation is under:

Modeling Basics > Elements > Element Tasks > Composite Elements

In the UML Superstructure Specification the icon is displayed in Figure 15.34. However, they are called 'Hidden decomposition indicator icons' in the figure title.

If you do not know that these elements are called Composite Elements, I'm not sure how you would chase them down on the EA Help. There are various icons representing spectacles for executing view or search functions; indexing the composite element icon under 'spectacle icon inside element' might not be specific enough, but I have just put it into the index anyway. Any other suggestions?
