General Board / How to reimport the same package?
« on: April 16, 2010, 12:53:32 am »

I simply need to refresh all classes I previously imported though an XMI file. I have an updated XMI to import but I am getting duplicates instead of just the update I am looking for. I can delete the old ones but I will lose all diagrams.

What is the simplest way to do this?



General Board / How to get the fully qualified named?
« on: November 07, 2009, 04:56:25 am »
When working on class diagrams the fully qualified name is not shown by default on the diagram. What's even stranger is that displaying the Properties dialog for a class does not show it either!?  :-?

If I have: and, the diagram AND the Properties dialogs will show just "Stream" for both. How do we tell classes apart?  :o

At best I can make the diagram display "cust::Stream" which still doesn't help. We need to see the fully qualified name but I haven't found how yet. Such a basic thing...anybody has a clue how to enable this?


General Board / Scripter disabled (no console)
« on: April 19, 2009, 12:52:07 am »

For some reason the Scripter pane is always disabled. I can see sample scripts but I can't execute them or create new ones. Same issue with the Console: if it try to start the console I get a "Could not open console. Reason: The operation completed successfully" and any command returns No console opened"

I have version 7.5 but it is the first time I try to use Scripter.

General Board / How to display the entire package?
« on: March 13, 2009, 04:55:17 am »
In a class diagram we can display part of the class package (ex: package::class) by checking the Show Namespace in the diagram properties but that does not help when we have names like:
dt.cms.schema.Group because only schema::Group is displayed.

There is no way to know what we are looking at (we have dozens of diagrams, hundreds of packages and a bit over 10000 classes). Diagrams are usually small but can include classes from many different packages.

This is an obvious dumb question but I searched diagram properties and options to find where to enable displaying the full name and not truncating but could not find where it is done.  :-/



Bugs and Issues / EA crash on XMI export
« on: January 31, 2012, 12:20:21 am »

When trying to export a large project to XMI 2.1 with EA 9.2 build 200 I end up with this error:

Source = Line : 0; Char 0
Error Description = (null)

Clicking OK just sends it in a loop on the same error. The only way out is to terminate EA. The problem occurs at the "Formatting output XML" step

Anybody encountered that problem?

Bugs and Issues / Losing diagrams' content on import
« on: July 14, 2010, 11:44:02 pm »

If I export a package with the "full EA roundtrip" option, I still lose all the content of all diagrams that used some of the package's classes. The diagrams still exists but they are now empty.

I thought the purpose of the roundtrip option was to resynch entities based on their GUID included in the XMI so references was not lost?

tested with latest build (859)

thanks for any help understanding this


Bugs and Issues / DAO Recordset [3022]
« on: December 06, 2008, 04:28:01 am »
I am getting many errors like this while trying to import some XMI. The problem is that it seems impossible to pinpoint the origin. The log is useless as there is no information on  what tag or element is being processed (and the XMI is close to 40Mb).

I have found other obscure messages in the logs (like "Unknown Client or Supplier") but have the same issue of the log not being descriptive enough. Is there a way to may it more verbose to understand what is really going on?

DAO Recordset [3022]
The changes you requested to the table were not successful because
they would create duplicate values in the index primary key, or
relationship. Change the data in the field or fields that contain
duplicate data, remove the index, or redefine the index to permit
duplicate entries and try again.
