Work with MDG Technologies

Any MDG Technology listed on the MDG Technologies dialog can be enabled, which makes their interface profiles and Toolbox pages available for your use.

When you enable an MDG Technology, any Technology-specific diagram types are added to the New Diagram dialog lists, and the Technology's Toolbox pages are added to those available through the More tools menus in the Toolbox.

If you set an MDG Technology to Active, it becomes the main technology  for the model. Only one Technology can be active at a time. The Technology's validation configuration is set, and whilst common Toolbox pages are visible at all times, the Technology's Toolbox pages override any parallel Enterprise Architect Toolbox pages; for example, the ICONIX Class pages would override the Enterprise Architect Class pages.

You create Technology-specific diagrams and populate them with elements and connectors in the same way as for standard Enterprise Architect diagrams.
