General Board / Re: Run Version 8 and Beta 9 on same machine
« on: March 17, 2011, 12:57:19 am »
Yes it is possible but I would urge caution. You need to rename or move the the EA folder (default location is C:\Program Files\Sparx Systems\EA) of version 8. Then install version 9 which will claim to uninstall version 8 and will install itself into the default location. All being well, you can then run either build using their corresponding EA.exe file.

Result! Thanks the t_connector data link from Excel solution did the trick. Many thanks for your patience  :D

Sorry to be a pain but I have tried checkmarking 'detailed connectors' - I hope hat is what you are referring to. I am using version 4.51.750 by the way. All I can achieve is the following...

source > target


Consent Update success?

No Link Name displayed though :-(

I had already tried this but thanks for looking at this. At least I am reassured that I was not doing something illogical. The method you outlined only describes the flow in terms of its source and target. No Properties (such as Link Name or Notes for example) are reported on.

Forgive  - I'm new to this product. I cannot report out the Object Flow link name. This doesn't mean it can't be done. It just means that I cant do it which is why I posted my plea for advice.

I would appreciate some advice on how to report out the Object Flow Link Names from an activity diagram into a text file. Is this possible? I have tried the Rich Text Format options with little joy.
If not, is there an alternative way that Object Flow Information can be input such that it can be displayed on an activity diagram and reported out in a text and/or excell format?

Bugs and Issues / Structured Scenarios - merging alternate paths
« on: June 17, 2010, 08:29:58 pm »
I have been generating activity diagrams from a Structured Scenario. Two alternate paths rejoin the basic path at the same point. The generated diagram doesn't render a merge node prior to activity. Instead all the control flows from the various paths converge on the activity.
Adding a merge node to the diagram generates a validation error when trying to generate the scenario from the diagram. Removing the merge node results in a succesful scenario generation.
So my question is this.
1) Can you use merge nodes in structured Scenarios and if so what am I doing wrong? OR
2) If they aren't used is this ok from a UML compliance standpoint - namely it is permissable to relax the UML spec "A merge node is a control node that brings together multiple alternate flows. It is not used to synchronize concurrent flows but to accept one among several alternate flows."?

Uml Process / Re: Ordering Complex Types

Ok thanks for your replies. From what you say it seems like a Plan B outside of EA will be required.

Uml Process / Ordering Complex Types
« on: August 20, 2015, 08:20:22 pm »
So  currently reverse engineering an XML schema in EA and we are now looking at generating the XSD and trying to validate against an example xml file.

However, the xsd schema file generated from EA, output some of the complex types in a different order than the original schema. Is there a way that this can be controlled in EA?

Note: We are aware of how to order elements within a complex type - that  isn't the issue.

Many thanks
