General Board / Re: Package control without "version control" possible?
« on: October 17, 2018, 09:28:41 pm »
Many thanks for the hints.
We will first evaluate the option with the MS-SCC inteface. It would be awesome if that works.
Your second option is second in line ;).

General Board / Package control without "version control" possible?
« on: October 16, 2018, 01:58:33 am »

a colleague asked me if it is possible to have package control (package content is also stored in file system) in EA without the need of a version control server like SVN, TFS, etc.
He would like to "tell EA" that some packages shall be stored in a file and the EA model knows that these packages are not only stored in the model, but also in the files.
Whenever he changes the package content in the model (previous "checkout" needed), he also would accept to do some "checkin" to update the file content.

Background of the question:
We are going to use the IBM CLM with RTC (Ration Team Concert) for version control.
As RTC creates a local copy of version controlled elements we would need to have our design model to be split into many files (just like now; we use ClearCase as verison control).
BUT: As IBM RTC is not directly supported by EA, we are thinking of having a file based storage of our design model, instead of a monolithic model.
Of course we would still store the model in a DBMS, but single "package artifacts" would be needed in RTC as files.

Thanks guys.
If it is really that easy, not all my faith in mankind is lost :).

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Create MDG via script?
« on: October 09, 2018, 06:35:43 pm »

is it possible to create an MDG from an EA Script?
Assuming I have already several xml files containing my UML profile, my own toolbox, my own diagram type, etc.
And, most important, I have already a correct and complete *.mts file.

I would now like to create the MDG.xml file running a script, instead of clicking through the dialog window.
Is that possible?
So far I have not found any information on that in the reference of the automation interface.

(I'm still confused about the changed editions since V14)
But my EA 14.1.1427 with an "old" Corporate Edition license can easily "publish a diagram as UML profile".
I am doing this regularly in the past few days.

Is it possible that the help of the following link is somewhat incomplete:

In step 3 a metaclass with the name "ToolboxPage" shall be created.
But what type of metaclass shall be extended? There are some dozens of "core element" like Action, Class, Enumeration...

If I select "Class" and continue with creating my own toolbox profile, I get an error on importing the profile xml file at the end:
"Error parsing: V:\path\to\my\profile.xml".
Nice, but what is the error?
I definitely "published" the correct profile diagram as profile.

I created an UML profile with a bunch of stereotypes.
I also created a pattern in which classes of these stereotypes are used.
Profile and pattern are added to an MDG.

When importing this MDG to another model I see the toolbox offering my stereotypes -> As expected :)
What I am missing is my pattern.
Where is it?
Does my MDG need something additional to make the pattern usable and selectable somewhere?

General Board / Re: Empty tags of a class not shown in diagram
« on: September 18, 2018, 09:40:20 pm »
OK, thanks Simon :'(.

Inserting such a space would might be an option, but I would have used displaying empty tags for a quick overview of which tags are still empty.
I decided to add a red colored circle as decoration via a shape script if one of the tags are empty ("red bubble --> something is missing").

If showing tags is activated in a diagram OR in teh individual "show compartment visibility" of an element (e.g. class):
Why are only tags with filled out values shown in EA 14.x?
How to show all (really all) tags of an element (no matter if the tags are filled with values or not)?

As qwerty write EA 12 showed all tags, but EA 14 does not, only the filled ones (EA 13 behavior?).

Simons approach worked well.
Many thanks for that.

General Board / Create read-only tag in an UML profile
« on: September 14, 2018, 11:58:39 pm »
does anybody know how to make a tag read-only?

We created an own UML profile with some stereotypes for classes.
For one stereotype I would like to make one tag "read-only". The tag has a default value, and it would be nice if the user, who creates a class of such a stereotype cannot change the value of that tag.

I just observed that EA 14.1 does not display tags with no value (empty tags) in a diagram, even if the compartment visibility is set for tags (or even inherited tags).
As soon as I give the empty tags a value they are displayed.

Is this behavior normal/intended?
How is the behavior in EA version <= EA 14.0?

I would like to see all tags, even those with no value, if compartment visibility is set for tags.

since a long time (>> 1 year) I have a really annoying behavior when creating a message/call in a sequence chart.
Today it really makes me >:( >:( >:( >:(.

When creating a message between existing messages the message jumps down after creation.
Sometimes it is located at the very bottom, sometimes somewhere in the middle of the diagram.
I always have to move it with press Alt-key to the intended location.

This does not happen the created message is the last in the sequence.
The behavior is the same in EA 12 and 13 (14 not yet tested).

Any idea what might cause this behavior?
Or even better: how to get rid of this?
I do not think this is intended.
A re-installation did not help.

General Board / Re: Where are user passwords stored?
« on: April 20, 2018, 12:19:22 am »
I found the new password storage.
It is in table t_xref. All entries with name = 'SHA-256' are passwords of users in table t_secuser (passwords that have been created with EA version >= 11).
The guid of a user can be found in t_xref.client.

Maybe this information also helps anyone else :).

It is true that there is still a column named "passwd", but that is the old password hash that has been used before EA 11.
Somehwere else are the new SHA hashes,but not in t_secuser
