Will the newer versions of Visual Studio be supported in EA 14 to work with the coding analysis tool?

We are using VS 2017 for everything now.

General Board / Convert Sequence Diagram To Activity Chart
« on: February 04, 2017, 03:10:35 am »
Is there an easy way to convert a sequence diagram directly to an activity chart?  There is a need for a very complex calling to convert to an activity chart to simplify the diagram. Is this possible in V 13?

I have a sharepoint account that we use for project management. I would like to export the design documentation and charts to the sharepoint account. EA supports an export as web pages, but is there a means to export directly to sharepoint pages?

This is version 13 of EA

I have a set of reverse engineered code that i have placed into my class structure, and had created activity charts, test instances, etc from debugging that code.  Now I had to change the repository location on my desktop to fix my disk space issue.  I updated the code repository from Team Services to get the latest code changes, and i went to sync the model to the code changes.

What happened next is that i now have duplicated packages and classes in my structure, because the model did not merge, it created new class entries for the changed code. 

I have sequence charts, etc in my original untouched packages, and the new packages contain the changed code.  This is not my definition of merge.

What did i do wrong?  the only change (other than some functional changes in the classes) was the location of the source code repository. The project did not change, and the class names and packages did not change.

What did i miss?  I set the path variable correctly and had been using that variable to define the root path of my source code. I was only merging from the source.  Why would it create all new packages and duplicate what is in my model.

How can I merge what i have and make sure that the code is correctly pointing to the source, as i have to continue using the debugger to generate sequence charts on this code.

General Board / Is there a VS integration with Cloud Services
« on: October 17, 2016, 10:12:47 am »
I have the MDG Integration with Visual Studio 2013 and i wanted to open the model that we use.  However I notice that there is no method to select a model that is on the cloud services.  We use the cloud services to connect to our model as my development team is distributed in different offices.  How do we connect to that model?  I really didn't want to let my developers connect via direct DB connection.

How do we do this?

We are going to be updating to V13 shortly.

General Board / is a new cloud server needed for V13?
« on: October 08, 2016, 09:57:37 pm »
We are using the cloud server to store and retrieve our model for our distributed team.  I wanted to update to V13 but my team members may not be able to do so quickly.  I noted something on the download page that said that V13 uses a new communications protocol and may not connect to older versions.  If I update the cloud server will i be in effect forcing everyone to update to V13 immediately or lose communication with the server?  This was not made clear in the download page.  Will older releases still be able to communicate with the cloud server if I update?

General Board / V 13 Schedule
« on: September 22, 2016, 09:07:27 pm »
Anyone know when V13 is going to be released? 

The next Beta Version?

Seems like this is delayed, when the webinar about V13 is delayed until October

I have a set of Nunit tests i created in MSTest to run against our API.  I imported them into my EA model  as part of my general systems model.  I need to run them in EA to generate test results and activity charts against the actual code in my larger system.  I am documenting the entire system's behavior through interaction charts on each API call.

I read the code in, and the code is visible in my system.  Where do i start in executing my Nunit tests?  I am a little lost here.  I had been debugging using the web page and attaching to my project, but these are stand alone tests.

I need a bit of guidance here?  Also best practice?

Uml Process / Documenting REST Service Calls in an API
« on: August 22, 2016, 08:26:53 pm »
Does anyone have a guideline on Reverse engineering a system with REST service calls.  I need to show both from client side and server side the communications between all service calls.  I am documenting an API.  I learn from example.

I am trying to draw a domain diagram from reversed engineered classes.  When i drag and drop the class on the diagram, the full class with all properties, methods, and class attributes show on the diagram.  Is there a setting or a script that can be used to show only the class and not all the attributes?  Its a pain setting by hand with a lot of classes to work with.

Is this scriptable? 

Bugs and Issues / Blue Screen of Death after latest OS update
« on: August 19, 2014, 06:04:20 am »
 :-X  I am no longer able to display a process diagram.  I thought it was my hardware, so i used a virtualized VM machine, and sure enough, EA loads a process diagram, no problem.   It seems that i updated with the latest microsoft service patches, and that is when the Blue Screen of Death appears when i go to display a diagram.

I then upgraded the VM (note that this was working fine), and now the VM crashes with the same blue screen.

i can send the image of the blue screen.
