Bugs and Issues / SysML port size changes unmotivated
« on: December 22, 2016, 01:58:42 am »
When you have a port within a block and you assign a stereotype to it AND the stereotype changes the color appearance (in my case defined in a MDG) the default port size changes from 5mm x 5 mm to roundabout 20 mm x 30 mm.
A stereotype only defining change in color should not change the size! :'(

When first started with reusable assets, it was ok for me to overwrite the old version.

After the assets got more mature I managed to hold different versions of an asset within the same storage. But now I have overwritten an old version by mistake, and by that I realized that it is not really clear to me what I have to do to over right a version and how to create a new version.

I have done both already but honestly I have no glue how.

Having properties under Activities stereotyped with <<adjunct>> (should be may be <<AdjunctProperty>>) contain a tagged value principal according to SysML spec. However it cannot be set to a suitable item like Connector, CallAction, ObjectNode, Variable, Parameter, submachine State, or InteractionUse

From my understanding of the sysml specification the stereotype should be <<adjunct>> rather than <<AdjunctProperty>>. Further on I would expect, when calling “Synchronize Structural Elements” on the owning activity that the created Activity properties are stereotyped by <<AdjunctProperty>> or maybe by <<adjunct>> (specification not absolutely clear to me).
But the properties are without a stereotype.

I did some modelling in the “mystic EA area” by refining some properties (structural elements).

By doing so I got an error message “ Unrecognized database format xyz.eap”. When opening the model anew this error remains.
So my database I corrupted by modelling. Any idea to fix that?

On a SysML BDD or an IBD you can add properties to a block with some but not all allowed stereotypes (just prop, connector prop, distributed prop, flow prop,…). However you can set the right stereotype afterwards.
On the process browser you can only add a flow prop. But again you can change the stereotype afterwards again.

A more consistent solution would be, to allow adding the same subset of stereotyped properties or even just an “unstereotyped” property for both diagrams and project browser.

Even trickier e.g. it goes, when you want to have a “ClassifierBeaviourProperty” classified with a State Machine. If you have already a property and you want to classify it with a state machine you are not able to, because StateMachines are not shown as possible Property Types (presumably a bug). The only way by achieving that is by dragging and dropping the state machine to the block in the diagram and by selection “Property” in the dialog.

In atomic actions, EA allows to insert text to an Effect property.
This text can be shown in a diagram “Show Effect in Diagram".

The text editor allows you to insert in that Effect property e.g. some kind of pseudocode (with line breaks) to describe the effect.

However in the diagram the effect is shown as a single line and the width of the action is expanded to fit to that effect text line.

Please keep the line breaks when the effect is shown in the diagram!!!!

Bugs and Issues / V13 State Machine Fork/Join Z-Order problem
« on: October 11, 2016, 02:50:31 am »
I have a state machine created with V12.

Within that state machine I have a state ( top level state) containing concurrent sub states. Within the top level state I have Forks/Joins.

These Forks/Joins are visible in V12 but not visible in V13.

Moving the Z-order of the top level state to bottom makes the Forks/Joins visible in V13 as those are visible in V12.

However when closing and opening the diagram the  Fork/Joins are not visible again.

Bugs and Issues / State Machine State Actions “burned in” Behavior
« on: September 29, 2016, 10:30:16 pm »
Once I entered a UML <behavior-type-label> or in EA wording added an "Operation" to a State and add a <behavior-expression> by selecting a Model Element on the Behavior Tab.

This behavior is “burned in”!
In other word to get rid of this behavior in my “Operation” I have to delete the whole Operation.

General Board / State Machine State Actions <behavior-type-label>
« on: September 29, 2016, 10:28:02 pm »
To allow defining of a <behavior-type-label> for state machine states, EA uses the "Operations" feature from Classes.

By doing so, is there any reason why I can define a return in the method signature of classes but not in the “method signature” of States?

When you have connected states with transitions and changed line style to Bezier and you add a new transition within the diagram all transitions switch back to Auto Routing.

This seems to happen for any line style changes from default (Auto Routing) to any other.

Observed in build 2015 and new V13 versions.

We have a EA SQL repository that is transferred to a eap file regularly.

Now we get the following error message:
„Database has reached maximum size [Select * from t_snapshot] Field:bincontent2”

As I know MS-Access DB’s are limited to 2GB. The last successful transfer resulted in ~800 MB. To verify that the data in the SQL DB is not exploded, we transferred the data to a feap, again resulting in ~ 800 MB.
So we are still far away from 2 GB.

Any idea on that?
Does anyone know if the transfer is done with one SQL select transaction?

Bugs and Issues / Create Linked Notes has strange behavior
« on: September 13, 2016, 06:31:30 pm »
I have classes with longer textual constraints.
To show this constraint text in several lines, I selected the constraint and pressed ”Create Linked Note”. This works fine in Build 1215. However when I change the constraint text, the note gets empty “{}”.
In current build for V13 the ”Create Linked Note” is even disabled.

I assume both kinds of behavior are a bugs.

When you define Tagged Values for Stereotypes with Profile Helpers and you add e.g. two Tag Groups, you can move the tags to those groups.
After closing and opening the Profile helper, tags defined e.g. under group A are now moved by EA under group B.
This behavior is in V12-V13.

I created a SQL search query. What I need from that query is a CSV file export.

Due to the fact that I need the notes of my elements, I defined “Note as Notes” to get rid of that “special treatment of the note field”. But there is another “special treatment of the note field” when it contains some text formatting stuff like Bold, List, … . In this case those parts of the note filed are not going in my notes column when exporting to CSV, but in one to many additional rows below the element.
Does anyone know a way to get rid of this “special treatment of the note field”?
