General Board / Where is the 'roadmap' information stored.
« on: September 30, 2016, 01:37:25 am »
Version 12.1 Has a nice new feature to draw roadmap diagrams. However, I cannot see where the roadmap information is stored, either on the object or in the diagram tables. I would like to import this information from our project management system and keep it up to date.

Has anyone found a way to re-order connectors (or more precisely connector ends), like you can with attributes? This is quite critical for things like XML Schema definition where a change in order is breaking change.

Suggestions and Requests / Relationship Matrix in Documentation

It should be possible to include a relationship or gap analysis matrix in HTML or RTF reports.

Now that the spec. for Archimate 2.0 has been released, it would great to update the Archimate template to support the new extensions.

General Board / V11 RC1
« on: March 30, 2014, 01:36:37 am »
When will there be some documentation on using code generation with state machines? There seems to be major changes in how state machine code generation works, but the help system still has zero documentation on this feature. Only the legacy stuff is documented.


General Board / Cloud Service and EAP
« on: February 16, 2014, 06:45:59 am »
Does the cloud service support EAP databases? It doesnt seem to, but it supports the feap file, so maybe I'm messing something? If so, how do you register.

General Board / Cloud Services Admin Client
« on: February 13, 2014, 02:32:17 am »
Trying to use the v11 Beta. I can install the cloud services fine, but the documentation says to connection to the 'Admin Client'. There are no instructions on what this client is or how to connect. Is it a url? A separate program? An EA command?



General Board / Git support
« on: August 17, 2013, 07:29:36 am »
Anybody managed to setup EA to use Git as a version control system? I've seen some things that look like an SCC provider for Git, but I thought I'd check to see if somewhat had already done it.

General Board / Where's EA 10
« on: December 14, 2012, 05:08:49 am »
Final release is announced, but I can only see R9 in the download area now.

General Board / Customize HTML Report ToC
« on: September 26, 2012, 03:33:21 am »
Anybody know how to customize the Table of Contents in an HTML report. I'd like to prevent the display of the stereotype and also choose between Name and Alias for the text. It seems like the HTML should just follow the current settings in the project browser for this, but it doesn't. In any case, I don't think you can control it from the HTML templates, because the ToC is all generated by javascript. The javascript is all really obtuse, so I guess I'm just asking if anyone has any experience in modifying it.


General Board / Background colors in documentation?
« on: May 31, 2012, 06:13:26 am »
Is there a way for the images create in documentation (rtf or html) using the same background color as the diagrams in the tool? Right now, all generated diagrams have a white background.

General Board / Searching for stereotypes
« on: February 09, 2012, 12:52:12 pm »
I'm trying to develop a model search to find elements with a given stereotype.  But the built-in query builder only seems to look at the primary stereotype.  What I want to search for is any element that has my stereotype applied as an additional stereotype.

Do I need SQL for this?

Any samples?

Bugs and Issues / Displaying notes from a Diagram Reference.
« on: June 28, 2011, 11:33:30 pm »
When I create a diagram reference, an associated element is created in my project, and I can create notes, constraints for it.  But I cannot make the notes display on the diagram containing that reference.  When I set the diagram properties, I select all of the options for showing 'compartments', but none of them show up.  How do I display this information?

Uml Process / More Signal weirdness
« on: February 17, 2014, 01:40:42 am »
So it also appears that you cannot generate source code for a Signal, the option is greyed out on the menu (though the view source code option is not). Why would that be?

Uml Process / How to model duplex asynch services
« on: February 16, 2014, 05:10:03 am »
I'm working on a protocol that involves the exchange of messages over web sockets. The communication is bi-directional and asynchronous. There are two distinct roles (i.e. consumer and producer), and there is a subset of the messages that are allowed for each role. Essentially consumer asks for data and producer sends it. But it's asynchronous and message-based instead of RPC style.

So at each end of the communication, there will be something that looks like a bunch of calls - SendXxxx(message) when you send messages - and a bunch of events - <<signal>>OnXxxx(message) for when you receive.

Is it best model this as one interface and simply make it required of one role and provided by the other, or would it be better to make IProducer and IConsumer  where each is the opposite of the other (i.e. signals become calls and vice versa).

Is there any real advantage to doing it one way or the other?
