Bugs and Issues / Re: Images cropped in generated document
« on: September 14, 2018, 09:03:08 am »
I'm seeing this in V14. I'm sure I've seen a post about changing some configuration thats cures this, but I can't locate it.
Any ideas?

Bugs and Issues / Re: Notes for class attributes

I'm slowly getting my head around EA 14 Menus, and I'd have to say that I'm growing to like it.
I approve of the simplifcation of context menus, and in ribbon improvements.
If the Find Command dialogue could actually show you which ribbon and pane the command was on that would be a winner.

Bugs and Issues / Re: v14 long lasting bugs

Bugs - I hear you man.
I can say Sparx Systems does tend to
a) respond quickly and acknowledge bugs
b) never commits to when they will be fixed but often fix things I've raised within a 6 months.
Agreed, and Support are effective in reproducing issues, and often providing good work arounds.
It's been my observation that by and large the quality of EA has consistently improved.
For example in my early days of usage the app was known to crash or go into hard loops, and we had discussions about phone home bug reporting.
I haven't seen EA crash or hang for quite a while.


Thats not to say there aren't a number of enhancements I'd like to see (go back to the threads about diagrams on EA 8 or 9 for example), but it is my go to tool (sorry Vision, sorry Word)

I don't think you can achieve this in the EA editor.
If you are using a Document User Template you could try exporting it, cand using Word change the style to restart numbers, and import it again.

Bugs and Issues / Re: Diagram Legend visible in Project Browser on V 1419

Don't take this as an official response, but my guess would be to make it easier to use on multiple diagrams.

Interestingly, it is actually possible to use Borders and Notes on other diagrams (Copy, Paste as link).
So for consistency these ought to be in the project browser as well.

Ah, yes, I haven't been playing in that area.

I can select by a substring in Keywords to include or exclude packages and (I think) entities in the gernated document view. (See link).
You can insert the Keywords field in generated documents.

Paulo, you are absolutely correct that it is categorisation I am looking for.
Simon, I agree modelling both Classification and Categorisation is best.


But here's the thing you can help me with...


My scenario is that I am managing requirements.
I must be able to generate a view of the requirements model as a word document.
For example:
  • A requirement has a classification 'requirements level' (e.g. Must, Should, May)
  • A requirement has a category 'platform' (e.g. IaaS, PaaS, SaaS)
  • A requirement only has one 'requirement level', but may apply to more than one 'platform'.


In the document I must be able to display the requirement's requirement level, and the platforms the requirement applies to.
I must be able to select the contents of the document based on platform.
For example the requirement is presented in a tablular format, with columns for
  • Requirement Id (we use Alias)
  • Requirement name
  • Requirement description (Note)
  • Requirement level (?)
  • Requirement platforms (?)


Can you point me to an exemplar of how I can achieve this?

General Board / Re: View Query Builder query as SQL
« on: September 05, 2018, 12:44:15 pm »
And now something that appears to work - and is being tested:
Code: [Select]
SELECT
t_package.Package_ID AS ExcludePackage,
t_package.Name as Package_Name,
t_object.Name,
t_object.PData5 as Keyword,
t_object.Object_ID
FROM t_object, t_package
WHERE t_package.Package_ID = #PACKAGEID#
AND t_object.Object_ID = #OBJECTID#
AND NOT ((t_object.PData5 IS NULL) OR (t_object.PData5 LIKE '#WC#cloud#WC#'))
with reference to http://www.sparxsystems.com/enterprise_architect_user_guide/13.0/model_publishing/exclude_package_query_and_scri.html

I think I am getting close thanks to this helpful post


Code: [Select]
SELECT
t_object.ea_guid AS CLASSGUID,
t_object.Object_Type AS CLASSTYPE,
t_Package.Name as Package_Name,
t_object.Name,
t_object.PData5 as Keyword,
t_object.Object_ID
FROM t_object, t_package
where t_object.package_id = t_package.package_id
and ((t_object.PData5 IS NULL) OR (t_object.PData5 LIKE '#WC#cloud#WC#'))

General Board / View Query Builder query as SQL

Is it possible view a query builder query as SQL?


I'm trying to develop a query for a document along the lines of


Keywords IS NULL OR Keywords LIKE "<value> OR Keywords LIKE "<anothervalue>"


thanks


Simon
