General Board / Re: Sparx EA V13.5 Beta
« Last post by skiwi on Today at 12:45:52 pm »
Simon,

Again there's no post in the "latest news" forum.
Can you please make sure whoever is responsible for that makes sure to always post a topic there first.
That is where we, the "specialists" keep an eye on, and it's a bit embarrassing if a customer comes with the news that a new version has been released without us knowing it already.

Since years this was always the first place where a new release was announced, and now suddenly since the last two releases it gets forgotten. What is happening down there?
I'm really not happy with this  :(

Bugs and Issues / Re: Search error on forum
« Last post by Simon M on Today at 11:31:36 am »
Contrary to my previous post on this topic, I have since learned that this error is part of the automatic spam filtering being run on the forum.

I don't know what it's doing fully, but my understanding is that it's a combination of heuristics and an externally maintained database of known spammers. I would guess that something in your Monday morning routine trips the heuristics.

To my knowledge, column N means to show it when dragging to empty space. That overrides your target elements specified (as described in the help).
Thanks, Simon, I'll check that out.

Thanks, Simon,

Did the trick.  Once we automated the generation of our QuickLinker, that stuff "dropped below the horizon".

I get a similar error on the first post (not read) EVERY Monday morning!

I previously talked to Sparx support and got a similar response.  So my "beef" is not with them.  My query is why EVERY Monday morning?  Anyone got any idea what's going on?  I can now show that if I logout and login again (when I get the error), there is NO problem.  So maybe I should do that every Monday morning?

Suggestions and Requests / Re: Link to Connector Feature
« Last post by Paolo F Cantoni on Today at 09:50:31 am »
I can use the quick linker to connect a note to a connector (association) as well as to an element (class) (in 12.1).


Also by selecting a connector (where ate least one end is attached to an entity (not a note)) the context menu allows me to 'attach note or constraint'


What I can't do (and probably should be able to):
  • Link the note to a connector connector note
    In the previous post using the note context advanced menu you can link only to connector tagged values and constrains
  • Select the notelink when it is connected to a connector (but I can select a notelink when it is connected to an entity)
  • In fact the notelink connected to a connector appears to have no context menu at all.


I hope that as Paulo has 'reported' this these inconsistencies might be rectified as part of any changes made.
Hi Skiwi,

Have a look at the bugs I reported in "Bugs and Issues", they might have some bearing or at least save you some heartache.

Also, the "Notelink" attached to the connector is not.  It is a chimaera, it only exists on the diagram.  It is a rendering of the "internal" relationship held by EA.  That's why it has no context menu.

HTH,
Paolo

Yes, i've find the menu.

I've tried to create User Defined Data Type "dCustomer_id" as VARCHAR(10);

But when i want to create with this domain name, found error when creates tables, because dCustomer_id not automatically convert to VARCHAR(10).

Is there any solution to implement domain or user defined data type in EA?

Thanks.

You can not really do that. They are stored under %appdata%\Sparx Systems\EA in the Workspace* and User Views folders and are exports of the registry. You can probably distribute the contents of these folders and it should work as you wish.

I am (was) sure that there it's possible to export/import Perspective Sets, Workspaces, etc - but I cannot find how to do it. I don't see them in the Export Eeference Data. And I don't see any export/import function in the Perspectives Window either.
How do I export/import Perspective Sets, Workspaces, ...?
I have them on my old workstation (windows 7 + EA 12) - and distributed them to users in an MDG file.
Now I have moved to a new workstation (windows 10 and EA 13) - and need the perspectives, workspaces, ... to include in my MDG.
