WebEA User Guide

Sparx System's WebEA is a web-based application that allowsyou to review and comment on Enterprise Architect repositories, in real time, on a range of mobile devices or on a remote work station, without needing to install Enterprise Architect. You can be anywhere in the world and do not need to be in an office, just somewhere where internet access is available(#). WebEA is ideal for stakeholders and clients to see the work in which they are invested, and to comment on and discuss aspects of the model.

WebEA models can be configured to allow you to update element notes and Tagged Values, add element features (such as tests and resource allocations) and even create Project Management elements (to record issues, changes and similar), or Use Cases, Requirements and system components.

The data shown by WebEA is the same as is shown by Enterprise Architect, even though you are using your web browser. This means that all model updates occur in real time, so WebEA users can be confident that they are seeing the latest version of the model structure.

#  Specific configuration is required to enable WebEA access to your Enterprise Architect repositories via the internet.
