Suggestions and Requests / Re: Viewing more things 'side by side'

Agreed.  The ability to see and work on multiple diagrams at once would be a big productivity boost.

Suggestions and Requests / Re: API support for Export/Import Reference Data
« on: November 21, 2007, 08:01:14 am »
I vote for this one too.  

Disseminating updated reference data to multiple users is a real pain.  There does not appear to be any sensible way to do this when using private EAP files that are synced via version control.   Ideally, this data should be part of the root package, so that it can be included in VC updates.   Short of this, writing an add-in to do the import would be reasonable, if the APIs were available.

Are there any plans to support Archimate Viewpoint Abstraction Rules, as defined in Section 8.5 of http://www.opengroup.org/archimate/doc/ts_archimate/chap8.html and Appendix A of https://doc.novay.nl/dsweb/Get/Document-35434.

This kind of functionality would be very useful across the board (in UML, etc.) and especially in relationship matrices, where the ability to map derived relationships would increase the usefulness of this feature by an order of magnitude.

Keep up the great work!

PS: This functionality has previously been alluded to - see Didier Fort's post in http://www.sparxsystems.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.cgi?num=1254940125/19#19

Does anyone know if and how the containment of elements within ArchiMate "Grouping" constructs is represented?  More specifically, is there a way I can use the relationship matrix to view these relationships? (eg. element -> grouping)

Ditto for "Software" elements contained within "Node" elements.

Thanks,
PM

What is the recommended approach for communicating some sort of add-in initialization error back to EA, ideally so that a custom error message can be displayed in the add-in manager?

In my particular case, I am loading some object definitions using Spring.NET and want to clearly communicate any configuration errors back to the user, as opposed to the standard "Error - Missing" message.

Also, does EA provide any logging hooks to plug-in developers, or should we just using our logging framework of choice?

Is there any way to access the association type (Association, Aggregation, Composition) for linked attributes in code generation templates?   I have looked at the online help, but could not find an appropriate "linkAtt*" field substitution macro.
