General Board / Absolute Novice at SQL
« Last post by EmyrI on July 13, 2018, 10:05:12 pm »
hi folks, as well as being very new to EA as a software package and as career i am trying to learn as best i can. I am having some difficulty with learning SQL side of search the model

My initial SQL bore some fruit which was the very simplistic following:
Code: [Select]
SELECT ea_guid AS CLASSGUID, Object_Type AS CLASSTYPE, Name FROM t_object

where Name like '*Benefit*' or Name='*Benefit*'

I wanted to add some information to the search so that i can figure out where in my model this is found, borrowing from Geert's sql searches i devised the following to get some extra columns, where i am looking to get packnames and stereotypes listed

Code: [Select]
SELECT ea_guid AS CLASSGUID, Object_Type AS CLASSTYPE, Name as Name
,package.name as 'Package Name' ,package_p1.name as 'Package level -1',package_p2.name as 'Package level -2',package_p3.name as 'Package level -3'

from (((( t_object
inner join t_package package on package_id = package.package_id)
left join t_package package_p1 on package_p1.package_id = package.parent_id)
left join t_package package_p2 on package_p2.package_id = package_p1.parent_id)
left join t_package package_p3 on package_p3.package_id = package_p2.parent_id)

where Name like '*Benefit*' or Name like '*Benefit*'

Sadly i cannot make this work and i have no idea why it wont work, can anyone point me in the right direction?

Hi,

there is need to see highlighted text from Notes tab in generated by EA word document.
I see HTML formatted tags in EA, but somehow they are lost in word doc.

Only bold text has seen in a generated word document.

EA version: 13.3.1351.

1. Notes tab example:


2. Template example:


3. Tried Use style defined in template for Notes check-box,- didn`t help.


That's will be great if such the possibility (to see highlighted text in a generated word doc) exists.

Never spotted this before, and I've got that without explicitly enabling a bookmark in the small excerpt of the profile diagram when working with the most recent EA14 build (1422).

Hi Martin

Thanks Arshad, there are always some new surprises in EA.
Martin
Yes mostly . But this option is not implemented in EA 14 .
Dunno about previous version but its available from EA 8 :) :)

Hii

If an element is bookmarked then it is represented by a small red triangle.

To set bookmark :

  • Press Shift+Space, or
  • Select the 'Design > Element > Manage > Bookmark' ribbon option

For more details refer Bookmarks

Hello, a quick question: What does the red triangle icon in the diagram below stand for? Haven't found anything in the EA14 documentation.



Thanks, Martin

Suggestions and Requests / Re: Archimate connector stereotype labels
« Last post by Simon M on July 13, 2018, 03:12:34 pm »
To be clear - I'm after the Archimate relationship stereotype to be displayed, not anything related to UML types or stereotypes.  For example to have a connector display (optionally, controlled by the existing property) a text label "<<ArchiMate_Access>>", or even better "<<Access>>" to match the toolbox text.

I take your point that Archimate is a new language, although I can't see anything that precludes relationships from being labelled with stereotypes (the Archimate stereotypes). In fact the language explicitly includes the ability to specialize the base (Archimate) element and relationship types and explicitly specifies the use of the UML style guillemet notation for this.
Exactly, those correspond to a UML stereotype on the base UML element representing the connector. It's not something that you would actually want to display on an ArchiMate diagram. If you were using the same notation to describe a specialized form of Access connector, it would make sense to display that like a stereotype.

I don't see how this would impact any users of Archimate negatively - assuming it would be controlled by the existing 'show stereotype labels' diagram property.  With that property turned off the behaviour would be the same as it currently is. However I also take your point that it is unlikely that this will be changed if I raise a feature request (ie I shouldn't waste my time doing that).
Because by default all existing diagrams are set to show stereotypes. That means your change would show those labels on every ArchiMate diagram. Existing users would say that we've broken their diagrams. New users would throw away EA before ever finding the option.

But feel free to submit a request. I'm just one person.

Further to qwerty's comment and your posts, you can consider modifying the shapescripts in the MDG.
Removing middlebottomlabel this (and updating the default MDG) should restore your expected behavior.

Actual Shapescript from ArchiMate (refer Geerts https://github.com/GeertBellekens/Enterprise-Architect-Shapescript-Library)
Code: [Select]
shape main
{
noshadow=true;
setlinestyle("DOT");
moveto(0,0);
lineto(100,0);
}

label middlebottomlabel
{
print("");
}
