General Board / Re: Link to another EAP document from an element
« on: August 16, 2012, 01:55:29 am »
Sorry about not being clear, let me start over, hopefully this helps:

EAP to me is the file type of an Enterprise Architect project.
An Enterprise Architect Project is a project container for models and sub-models.

For this Project we have a Domain model and a Data model off the root model.  The domain model contains Domain Objects.  Of which one of the classes represents a state machine.  I have a state machine diagram that our product manager has developed in EA, but in another model, separate EAP file.  I need to get that into our domain model and make it a sub - model of the state machine entity.  I can copy it in, but that is only a copy and when he changes it, I am not updated.  I can also link to it, but that is just a file link and does not display when I drill down into project browser.  Therefore, I must launch a new EA in this context to view it.  I would like to link it in like in Powerpoint where you  link in an Excel doc and when an analyst updates that doc, it updates in your power point.

General Board / Link to another EAP document from an element
« on: August 15, 2012, 04:02:27 am »
I am looking to link in a State Machine Diagram to an entity.  The State Machine Diagram is a separate .EAP diagram. If I copy it in, I can get it to appear as a diagram under the entity.  But then I have to copy it each time it changes.  If I link to the file, then I don't get the state machine diagram in the class diagram.

Is there a way to link in documents and have them display as diagrams in the "root" diagram.

Uml Process / Modeling with Visual Studio 2012
« on: July 03, 2012, 01:07:18 am »
I am trying to work with EA and Visual Studio 2012.  I am also trying to demo with MDG. I am interested in a couple of areas.  The first is data modeling with VS Database Projects.  I can create the models in EA but it looks like at this time I can only export scripts and import them into a VS 2012 project.  When I try to link the project via View Project Connections Visual Studio I cannot link to the SLN file.  I do see the 2010 database unit test project though, just not the 2012 database project.  I also cannot Synchronize with code to the TSQL script, the file is setup under Related - Files.

My second issue is with a domain model.  I have a Visual Studio UML project.  I can import the XMI file from EA but it does not import the class diagram.  I also cannot link to this project with MDG.

My question is if VS 2012 is supported yet?  My next question is are the database and UML projects supported?
