General Board / Reporting Object flow link names
« on: April 07, 2005, 02:21:02 am »
I would appreciate some advice on how to report out the Object Flow Link Names from an activity diagram into a text file. Is this possible? I have tried the Rich Text Format options with little joy.
If not, is there an alternative way that Object Flow Information can be input such that it can be displayed on an activity diagram and reported out in a text and/or excell format?

Bugs and Issues / Structured Scenarios - merging alternate paths
« on: June 17, 2010, 08:29:58 pm »
I have been generating activity diagrams from a Structured Scenario. Two alternate paths rejoin the basic path at the same point. The generated diagram doesn't render a merge node prior to activity. Instead all the control flows from the various paths converge on the activity.
Adding a merge node to the diagram generates a validation error when trying to generate the scenario from the diagram. Removing the merge node results in a succesful scenario generation.
So my question is this.
1) Can you use merge nodes in structured Scenarios and if so what am I doing wrong? OR
2) If they aren't used is this ok from a UML compliance standpoint - namely it is permissable to relax the UML spec "A merge node is a control node that brings together multiple alternate flows. It is not used to synchronize concurrent flows but to accept one among several alternate flows."?

Uml Process / Ordering Complex Types
« on: August 20, 2015, 08:20:22 pm »
So  currently reverse engineering an XML schema in EA and we are now looking at generating the XSD and trying to validate against an example xml file.

However, the xsd schema file generated from EA, output some of the complex types in a different order than the original schema. Is there a way that this can be controlled in EA?

Note: We are aware of how to order elements within a complex type - that  isn't the issue.

Many thanks
