Please consider making it possible to create a linked document for a diagram.

Suggestions and Requests / Linked document indicator
« on: July 30, 2011, 04:55:03 am »
I created a package and then created a linked document for that package. However, I do not see anything in the UI that indicates to me that the package has a linked document associated with it. I have quiet a few packages in my project, it would be useful to be able to identify which of them have associated linked documents.

General Board / From Class model to Data model?
« on: March 26, 2009, 10:35:27 am »
Is there any way to generate a Data Model from a Class Model. We have a set of rules we use for our object relational mapping, so that given an class model, we can generate the supporting data model. However, in EA, I have to manually create the data model. I'm wondering if anybody has a way to take a class model diagram and derive a data model diagram from it.

Bugs and Issues / Version 11 project file corruption
« on: March 20, 2014, 06:44:40 am »
I appear to have a corrupted EA project file.

There is one node in the model which I cannot open. when I try, it presents a Dialogue that says:

An error has occurred loading the requested project.
DAO.Database [ 3159 ]

Not a valid bookmark

... and the node does not expand.

When I try to Find a diagram node within that model node by name, it displays a message indicating

DAO.Recordset [3343]
Unrecognized database format
'path .... filename'

The good news was that after clicking the ok button, the node opened.

What was interesting about this model (perhaps) is that I was stored on a network drive, and I was connected to the drive remotely. EA crashed due to a network error (this happens to me a lot even with older versions, something you might consider fixing). I then reset the network folder to Windows "work offline" mode, and disconnected my VPN to force EA to work with the local copy. I worked on it for a bit, then this error started to appear.

Bugs and Issues / ODBC connection fails with message ...
« on: April 13, 2013, 07:55:40 am »
Trying to import DB schema from ODBC, under Tools -> Database engineering -> Import DB Schema from ODBC

If I choose my SQL Server data source it works.

If I choose myMySQL data source, after selecting the data source, EA displays a dialogue that says

"Unable to obtain table information".

I am able to import data from the MySQL DB into another application on my PC, so I'm sure the ODBC connection is set up correctly.

Has anybody seen/resolved this?

Bugs and Issues / EA 8 (857) on Windows 7?
« on: June 12, 2010, 08:24:00 am »
Is anybody running EA 8 on 64 bit Windows 7? I tried, failed, and gave up. As soon as I drag a drawing element onto a page, EA hangs. I'm wondering if this is specific to my system or if others have encountered it.

Bugs and Issues / Import DB schema - replicates foreign keys
« on: May 13, 2009, 05:23:15 am »
I am seeing EA create multiple copies of each foreign key when I import table objects using the Import DB schema from ODBC source feature. I am connecting through ODBC to an Oracle 10gR2 instance, through the Oracle 'Instant Client'. Each FK is listed several times in the 'Operations' list in the class/table propertie dialogue.

EA 7.5.844

Anybody else see this behavior?
