General Board / Sequence <--> Class diagram relationship
« on: January 31, 2003, 08:41:44 am »
I can see how you can "link" an object instance in a Sequence Diagram to a Class in a Class Diagram, which then allows you to select any existing operation in the class as the message for your sequence diagram, but it doesn't seem like there is an intelligence beyond that.  Meaning once the sequence is created, if I change the operation in the class or update the sequence message neither action affects the other.  Also, it doesn't seem like if I add a new sequence and want it to also create a new operation for that sequence there's no way to do that.  Sometimes when creating my sequence diagram I'll need a new operation in my class, but I don't want to have to jump to my class diagram to make the operation first, I want to do both when creating my sequence.  Is there a way to do this?


General Board / Entity Relationship Diagrams

Is there a way to alter the Data Modeling connectors to denote a notation other then the UML notation for Data Modeling?  I would like to use Chen or IE.  I realize this is outside standard UML and possibly the direction this tool wants to go, but other UML focused tools (like TogetherSoft) allow for this and I know that EA tends to be very flexible.

General Board / Just some praise for Sparx!

I just used the code generation -generate code feaure for the first time since the initial time I used it and was oh so pleasantly surprised to see that EA was smart enough to only add the new methods and attributes I had added to the class since the last code generation.  This is very critical for us because we follow a very iterative development process.  I must say that I am impressed and constantly amazed at the wealth of capabilities that EA offers at such a low price.  Job well done Sparx!

General Board / View of operations in Class Diagram
« on: February 14, 2002, 08:07:45 am »
Is there any way to change the way that an operation in a class is displayed when looking at a class diagram.  I thought the standard was:

visibility name (parameter-list): return-type-expression {property string}

with parameter-list being: direction name: type = default value

We can enter the direction name and default, but only the type shows up when looking at the diagram and having the name at least would help communication.  If this can't be changed somewhere I would suggest it as an enhancement.  To allow the user to choose how to display it in the diagram.
