Suggestions and Requests / Priority for use cases
« on: April 07, 2004, 09:07:57 am »
The documentation states: ‘The priority of this element as compared to other project elements. Only applies to Requirement, Change and Issue types, otherwise ignored. Valid values are: "Low","Medium" and "High"’

It would be highly valuable to us, and I'm sure to the majority of your user community, to have "priority" available for use cases in particular and probably other classifiers in general.


General Board / Parenthesis on a return?
« on: November 09, 2007, 09:15:22 am »
On sequence diagrams I'm now seeing parenthesis on a return.

Essentially, I’m seeing something like this:

| message()  |

| response() |
|<- - - - - - |

I used to see this:

| message() |

| response  |
|<- - - - - -|

When creating the return message I’m simply specifying the name of the return value (“response”  in my example above) in the Message text box of the Message Properties dialog box and checking “Is Return” in the Control Flow section.

So, is this now actually per the UML spec?  Or am I not entering the right things in the right places on the Message Properties dialog?



General Board / Bug regarding the way messages are drawn?
« on: September 29, 2006, 03:07:32 pm »
In build 798 (and in 797) when creating a message between two lifelines, on either a sequence or communication diagram, the message is displayed as:

message(parameter) :returnValue

Instead of as:

returnValue := message(parameter).

Yes, I've double and triple-checked that I am specifying the Return Value in the proper place on the Message Properties dialog.

This isn't correct... is it?


General Board / Types for MDA Transformations?
« on: June 17, 2005, 10:43:12 am »
What should we use for the “language” or “types” when creating a PIM?  I’m guessing the transformation engine expects OCL types, but I don’t see OCL as a language selection.



General Board / SQL Server Replication for EA repository
« on: March 01, 2005, 03:42:36 am »
Hi all,

We are doing development in both the US and India.  We are using MS SQL Server for our repository and this is located in the US.  We have found EA’s responsiveness when connecting to this repository from India to be flat out terrible.  I’m wondering if it would be possible to use SQL Server replication to replicate the database and improve performance.

Have any of you tried replicating a SQL Server based EA repository?  Did you use Transactional Replication or another type of replication?  Any guidelines or pointers?


General Board / spaces in attributes
« on: April 20, 2004, 07:09:41 am »
When doing conceptual business/domain modeling we tend to use spaces in both class names and in attributes.  Since we review these models with customers, users, etc. we do not want to make understanding things harder on them by asking them to understand camelCase and PascalCase.

I have the option to ignore spaces in class names turned on; however, I cannot find an option to ignore spaces in attributes.  Every time I add an attribute I get an annoying popup boxy that says, "The name you entered has a space embedded and may cause code generation problems.  Continue?"  

I’m about to go nuts!  Is there any way to make this stop?



General Board / What happened to the Multi-Object?
« on: March 29, 2004, 03:03:11 pm »
What happened to the Multi-Object?  I cannot seem to find it on the context menu or element menu any longer.  I do see an option to set the multiplicity of an object directly… I don’t remember if that was there before or not.  Did Multi-Objects go away in UML 2?  If so, I do I show a collection of objects now?



General Board / Association name direction
« on: September 05, 2003, 11:29:21 am »
How can I show an arrow (small black solid triangle) that shows the direction in which to read an association name?
