Will support be added for Typescript? If so, when is it expected?

Suggestions and Requests / Kanban Show Assigned Resource
« on: August 26, 2014, 03:58:03 am »
I like the new Kanban feature, though I don't know why it puts the author's name in the top right corner of elements. Wouldn't it be more useful to show the person assigned to the task?

Suggestions and Requests / Firebird Database Modeling

I like to use the Firebird database with distributable applications for its free license and embedded option.

Could support for Firebird be added to database modeling?

General Board / Use Case Child Diagrams
« on: August 14, 2014, 12:17:55 am »
How do you make use cases clickable to view a child diagram, like in example.ea?

In the example each use case is marked with what looks like a pair of glasses.

General Board / Import Database Schema with Constraints -MS SQL
« on: December 07, 2011, 06:17:35 am »
I want to import a database model from an MS SQL database using ODBC.

The tables load, but without constraints (primary/ foreign keys).

Import BD Schema from ODBC >>> Syncronize Excisting Classess (all checked)  >>> Import (All)

The diagram is set to Show Compartment -contraints; and Connectors are set set to Information Engineering.

An explanation of how to get this to work would be appreciated.

General Board / Using UML wih Prince2
« on: July 09, 2008, 10:50:10 pm »
Recently I have begun working for a company that uses Prince2 development methodology as a project manager. I am more familiar with managing projects using RUP and UML. However, I think a lot of the documentation could be presented using UML, and I think every OOP project can bennefit from UML's round trip engineering process.

Does anyone have an opinion about this, or has tried to integrate UML diagrams with Prince2? How successful was it, and do you have any tips?

General Board / Child Diagrams for Use Cases -Sequence, Activity
« on: August 02, 2007, 07:12:47 pm »
How do you position child diagrams under use cases so that when the use case is clicked on the child will show?

In the manual, I found:

A Sequence diagram is often attached directly under the Use Case to which it refers. This helps keep elements together, both in the model and when documentation is produced. To do this, right-click the Use Case on the diagram and select Composite Element. Alternatively, from the Project Browser window, right-click on the Use Case and select New Child Diagram.

There is no "Composite Element" or "New Child Diagram" option either on the use case or from the Project Browser. There is a "Add Diagram" option, which places a diagram under the use case, but it isn't linked.

I am using Enterprise Architect 7.0

General Board / Set Default Project View
« on: July 26, 2007, 12:01:47 am »

How do you set a diagram to be shown when the project is loaded? For example, when the EAExample project is loaded it opens automatically at "Start Here."

I looked through the properties and searched the manual, but can't find how it is done.

General Board / Deletion Rules -Data Model
« on: June 07, 2007, 12:15:10 am »

Is it possible to set deletion rules to table relationships in a data model? E.g. deny, restrict, cascade...

General Board / Database Design Help
« on: April 19, 2007, 01:34:39 am »
I am new to database modeling and was hoping someone could help me.

I want to create a database that stores information about words, a little bit like a dictionary.

Each word (memberword) has a headword. e.g. is -> be (headword). Headwords can have multiple memberwords. e.g. be -> is, was...

Thge confusing part for me is how to have multiple memberwords. Here is what I have so far:

This doesn't reflect that a headword can have multiple memberwords. How is this done?

General Board / Set Datatype for Table Column
« on: April 18, 2007, 06:29:26 pm »
In Data Model, how can you set the datatype for a column? The Data Type pulldown menu is empty.

I am using Enterprise Architect 6.1.792

Bugs and Issues / Kanban Diagram Doesn't Show Element Properties
« on: August 27, 2014, 09:15:08 am »
Elements on a Kanban don't show any properties, like notes, despite being set in Diagram Properties.

When an element is created, the properties show for a moment, then disappear.  

Uml Process / Modeling Risk Analysis
« on: August 04, 2007, 01:23:52 am »
Does anyone have any best practices concerning modeling risk analysis with uml? I can't find a good example.

I can see that risks can be noted in the Project window for individual elements, and that a metric can be assigned in Project Indicators. What is really needed is somewhere all the risks can be viewed and ranked. Does anyone have a good method of managing this?

Furthermore, is it possible for this documentation to be discluded from reports.
