General Board / Re: EA6 and model corruption

FYI to everyone, this issue has now re-occurred after a day or so of using the corrected model.   Hopefully a fix will be forthcoming

General Board / EA6 and model corruption
« on: November 25, 2005, 04:37:14 am »
I recently upgraded to EA6 and have encountered the following problem/corruption with a model started with EA5.  This is the corporate edition, build 778 in a normal EAP file, no add-ins, no replication, no security with basically one user maintaining the model.

There was only one symptom, namely dragging  packages onto a diagram where they would appear either without showing their contents, or only partially showing their contents.  The diagram properties has "Show package contents" ticked.   No matter what I did (delete the element on the diagram, try again, add/delete elements within the package etc..) the same problem remained.

I then ran Data Integrity.  This found a number of issues all of which seemed to be recovered by the recover process.  I went back to the diagram, only to find the same problem existed.   It was worse however as I now seemed to have duplicates of the package I was dragging on, on the diagram - a condition that isn't allowed by EA normally.  It looked as though now I had a copy  on the diagram for each time I created/deleted the element on the diagram.   None of these duplicates showed the contents of the package properly.   Running data integrity again showed no problems with the model this time.  I therefore resorted to the catch-all XMI import/export.  

Good news to report.  After the model was re-imported, all seems to be well.     However a number of questions remain
- any idea what the corruption was ?
- is this an EA6 issue or was it just carried forward from EA5  (if not should we go back to EA5 ?)
- is it likely to re-occur ?   This is a relatively simple model which is a bit worrying, so has anyone else experienced this sort of issue ?  How widespread it is would provide an indicator of how likely it is to re-occur

any comments welcome,

FYI - This question was answered in the "EA6, Raquest and Replication" thread

General Board / EA6, Discussion Forum and replication

Hello.  Can anyone confirm whether the replication process also includes the new discussion forum feature in EA6 ?

Hello !
I didn't mean to suggest we were having problems - we're not.  I just wanted to confirm that replication is expected to work with RAQuest before we go down the route of trying to use it.

Hello.   Can anyone confirm if replication still works correctly if the RAQuest add-in is being used - in other words the additional attributes used by RAQuest are supported ?

You may also want to look at RAQuest which is the EA add-in for requirements management.   Developed by Sparx Systems Japan.  Have a look at:

General Board / Re: Versions 5 and 6 on the same machine
« on: November 17, 2005, 07:17:55 am »
Sadly, it's not practical for me to have 2 machines to compare versions 5 and 6.   So,  is it reasonable to

- uninstall version 5
- install version 6
- if it all goes wrong uninstall verison 6 and reinstall version 5 ?

Is is possible to run a licensed copy of version 5 and the trial copy of version 6 on the same machine for evaluation purposes ?

Can anyone confirm whether the RAquest add-in is compatible with EA version 6 ?

Also, don't forget to ask your Sparx Training partners and Consultancies to submit the same feature request otherwise there's almost no chance your request will be actioned.

"But EA lite doesn't just disable modifying the database. It also disables all reporting, generation etc....."

So what exactly is the point of EA Lite now ?   Disabling the ability to update the model made absolute sense,  but extending that to remove a growing list of read-only functions?   Really?   For goodness sake, I agree with Geert, this  "really feels like an evil practice...".
