General Board / Re: Architecture Framework views
« on: January 09, 2004, 11:43:06 am »
My response would be that it does that now.  I have created models that were developed using both the Zachman and the DoD Architectural Frameworks.  You can create your own views and populate those views with whatever artifacts you need.  What sort of support were you thinking about?

General Board / Installing patches
« on: August 10, 2002, 09:35:57 am »
The installation instructions for installing the Build 501 patch are the same as the Build 500 patch.  When I installed Build 500, ea.exe was copied to ea310.exe.  Do I now need to delete the (Build 499) ea310.exe, rename the current (Build 500) ea.exe to ea310.exe and then extract Build 501 ea.exe?  Do I even need ea310.exe?



Uml Process / Re: Sequence Diagrams

It would help to know what book you are reading.   That would help me to determine what kind of alternate flows you have questions about.  For example, object flows are shown on activity diagrams.  An alternate flow of a use case would/could be modeled with a sequence diagram.  Give me the book title and I'll try to give you an answer in context.


Uml Process / Re: Hierarchical Decomposition of Use Cases

A long and very interesting thread.

For questions and concerns related to use case hierarchy, I recommend Alistair C o c kburn's book, Writing Effective Use Cases.  He has a webiste with a lot of information at http://alistair.c o c k
(remove the spaces which have been inserted to prevent Alitair's name from becoming "thingy burn")

Alistair lays out a hierarchy of use cases much the same as Constantines.  That is the top level are summary use cases where each step in the summary use case may well be a separate user goal use case.  User goals may have sub-goals, like login.  I use this technique in EA by creating a package structure in my Use Case View.  I can provide a sample model for anyone interested in that approach.
