Suggestions and Requests / CVS support

support for other CVS would be great (not only the SCC). There may be quite a lot others who use such systems - especially the PHP developers.


Suggestions and Requests / Re: Actionscript 2.0 support

Hi SpoonsJTD,
I do not understand your question. Actionscript runs on desktops, too and in future Shockwave will be written in an EMCA Language, too (very likely AS but thats just gossip).
Java is used as a web technology, too and yeah, it runs on Windows, also.

To be precise Actionscript is the language with which Flash files can scripted/programmed. Maybe you add some graphics and compile the whole thing. Et voilą: you have a Flash movie (swf) which can be embedded almost everywhere or you create a projector (an executable).
More info on Flash here:  or  or  (if you REALLY want to know)

Actionscript is OO so using a modler makes sense, don't you think?


Suggestions and Requests / Actionscript 2.0 support

I'd like to break a lance for Actionscript 2.0. It would be great for the AS-community to get a good modeler like EA is and there are thousands of developers for AS (Flash). Actionscript follows the EMCA Ed. 2 standard and is quite Java like. So I carefully guess that the integration would not be too difficult  ::)
I'd love to hear your opinion on this.


General Board / Re: Code templates & generation: getter &
« on: December 19, 2003, 10:32:11 am »
Hi Joyce,
thanks for the hint. Maybe your problem with importing(?) code could be cured with the substitution macros? There are syntax files (like cgt_syntax.xml) which may be helpfull to change. Just an idea.

I found the property flag in the attribute tab which lets you create a getter/setter method. In this tab you can only get OR set, too. Fine. But this is not implemented for Actionscript and I do not know where to look :-(

BTW: If you change the attributes name after these getter/setters have been created the methods did not change automatically nor does EA asks wheater it should do so.

Even exporting the full reference data does not help too much: I thought there might be a possibility there.  :-/

Maybe there is a Sparx member how can help out, here?

So long

General Board / Code templates & generation: getter & sett
« on: December 16, 2003, 11:24:26 am »

I hope I did not miss this one in the manual.
Is there a way to create getters and setters automatically for a custom language?

I would like something like this:

private var property;

function set property() {
 return property;

function get property() {
 // bla

Thanks in advance

Hello again,
sorry, searching the help files I found out how to fullfill no. 2: using the reference data export & import should do it. Sorry for not reading the manual  :-[

No. 1 should be possible with a modified re-import, too.

I am currently evaluating EA and I am really impressed by its features so it is very likely that we will buy a copy.

I still have some questions:
Is there a fast way to create templates for new languages that are quite similar to the existing ones?
I would like to use EA with Actionscript 2.0 which is quite Java-like (ECMA Edition4). It would come in handy to copy the Java templates and modify them afterwards.
If I create the templates for Actionsscript 2.0 is there a way to retrieve them in the full version and/or make them accessible for my colleagues?


Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Re: XMI export - useless ?
« on: December 15, 2003, 03:19:23 am »
I tried to import EA's XMI into Magic Draw but it fails, too (I tried it with the EAExample). It is very important to do this for us because there will be members in the team who are working on a Mac and cannot use EA. They just have to view the diagrams and could use argoUML, for example.
A Viewer for other platforms would be a great extension for EA!
