Bugs and Issues / EA+Subversion out of sync?
« on: June 21, 2011, 02:50:30 pm »

I have two questions that I need some help with:

Question 1:
May I know where can I find some information on how version control works in EA?

It seems a little strange that version controlled version is out of sync with the displayed model when I open EA.

Here is my setup:
EA version: 8.0.858
Model repository: MySQL 5.1.42
Version Control System: Subversion 1.6.6

Once in a while, it appears as if some of our models are missing some packages when we open EA project.  
However, after some experimentation, I've noticed that if I retrieve the latest version again from File Version History popup, those "missing/stuffed" packages are fixed.
(it shows that it is using the latest version, and I have to do this on some packages even after a "Get All Latest").

Doing a Get All Latest will not solve the problem, and sometimes doing a "Get Latest" package by package solves it, but sometimes I have to retrieve the latest model again.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems like EA makes use of 2 copies of the model, one from the MySQL repo while the other one is a "Local Working Copy" from Subversion.  So I assume that EA handles the synchronisation of files for these two copies.  If that is the case, is this issue due to some problem synchronising these two copies?

Question 2:
May I know if EA can be configured to use Git for version control?
If not officially supported, may I know if there is any other workaround that you can point me to so that I can try it out?

I know this has been an old thread, but I just want to add that I have the same problem with EA with SVN+MySQL.

It's still not resolved, and if anyone has a solution to it, please reply and let us know.

I have similar issue,
few months back, Sparx systems told me they will get back to me, and I have never heard from them since.

Since then I've sent two emails and no reply.

I haven't tried v9 but v8 is giving me a lot of problem with svn+mysql configuration.

My MySQL repository is always out of sync with SVN repository, sometimes it shows that a package is locked when it is not, and sometimes the other way around, and sometimes a package (or entire tree) is gone.

I've seen several posts here but no solutions to it.

I've tried to seek help from sparxsystems but no luck either.

Bugs and Issues / disable version control

what's the best way to completely remove version control from EA projects?

Bugs and Issues / EA8+svn+mysql

Is there a reference to how EA8 works with SVN and MySQL?

I have been having a lot of problem with my SVN repository out of sync with MySQL repository.

How does it work in the following scenario,

User A open EA, with package A checked-in, EA remains open
User B open EA, check out package A
what will happen to the package as viewed by User A?

I have been having problem that users see packages as locked (checked-out) even though it is not, and some users see a package as unlocked (checked-in) while it has been checked-out.  

Please help
