General Board / Re: Databases
« on: April 06, 2002, 05:11:52 am »
Hello,

1.  I have made a note of this and the next time we make changes to EA in this area, we will include an option to do this.

2. If you switch databases the columns will retain their existing datatypes, however these maybe invalid in the new database and the invalid one will need to be manually corrected.  

3. Over time we have added more options to the DDL generation screen, however what in particular do you find missing?  Originally a textbox was choosen so that a user could enter any database name, not just the ones that have datatypes defined.  However this could be changd to a combobox that allows the user to type their own value.

4. Currently there is no way to achieve this, however we see what can be added to a future version.

5. Yes that is right, current the import and generation of indexes, stored procedures and triggers are not support by EA.  However these features are on our list to add into EA in the future.  At this stage there is no fixed release date, but we would hope that they would be included in the next few months.

General Board / Re: Display an OR relationship between 2 associati
« on: March 08, 2002, 04:46:36 am »
Hello,

Unfortunately EA does not support this notation at the moment and so far it has not been a very popular request (as you are the first).   However since it is part of the UML specification we will be including it into a future version of EA.  Exactly when this notation will be include is still undecided, at this stage.

General Board / Re: How to bend flows on activity diagram
« on: March 31, 2002, 03:19:53 am »
Hello,

The latest release of EA has a new line style, 'custom'.  This new style allows you to create bend points where you specific them, so therefore you should be able to achieve the connector you require.

Hope this helps.

General Board / Re: Help for better C design
« on: March 27, 2002, 04:12:32 am »
Hello,

It is possible to model C applications in EA, although you wont be able to perform forward or reverse engineering functions.   Currently we don't have any immediate plans support code engineering for C, however this may change in the future depending on customer requests.

Hello,

The status you see next to your name in the forum is based on the number of posts you have made and isn't related to your registration status.  Its intended purpose is to indicate how much experience/knowledge a person has.  ie the more posts a person has made, the better they know the system.  Of course this may not always be correct.

Hope this explains matters.

General Board / Re: Generating classes from sequence diagrams
« on: March 20, 2002, 05:06:45 am »
Hello,

If you create an object and assign a new stereotype to the object, it does not automatically become a global stereotype that appears in the dropdowns.  The list of stereotypes in the dropdown is defined in the stereotype reference screen.

Currently EA does not automatically generate classes from sequence objects, usually the class is generated in the logical diagrams and then copied/dragged into the sequence diagram.  However we are willing to add features that would work as you have suggested, if there was a user need for them.  Could you provide any details on how you would like to see this working.

regards,

General Board / Re: Reverse engineering C++

Hello,

I was just trying to replication the problem you describe, but have been unable to in the most recent build (475).  There was a diagram reload problem fixed in build 475 that should resolve the problem you have described.

Could you try build 475 and let us know if you have any problems.

General Board / Re: Copy and paste a message in a Sequence Diagram
« on: March 20, 2002, 04:50:55 am »
Hello,

At this stage EA does not support copying sequence diagram message, however we will add your request to our list of planned future improvements and we will try and include it in a future release of EA.

General Board / Re: Text wrapping problems for requirements
« on: March 13, 2002, 04:52:57 am »
Hello,

This is a strange problem, not sure why this problem is occurring, but we will look at it in the next few days and hopefully we should have a release that fixes this in the next few weeks.  Thanks for the feedback.

General Board / Re: Simple data modeling questions.
« on: March 13, 2002, 02:52:59 am »
Hello,

To answer your first questions.  You can define the default database product, on the 'Local Options - Code Editors' screen.  But there is no easy way to change the defined database product on multiple existing tables.

To define the default association type on the 'Local Options - Object' screen.

Hope this helps.

General Board / Re: Multi language support
« on: March 08, 2002, 04:13:28 am »
Hello,

Currently this isn't really possible, although we have had some users report that they have successfully converted the string resource file to their language.  Unfortunately at this stage the resource file does not contain every string that is shown to the users, therefore there are sections that appear in English and other sections in the second language.

We plan to rework the entire application to move all strings out to the resource file, that way allowing this file to be quickly replaced for other languages.  At this stage there is no fixed date, but we hope to have this process completed sometime this year.

Hope this information helps.

General Board / Re: UML 1.4
« on: February 16, 2002, 03:45:49 am »
Hello,

We do have plans to support more and more of the features of UML 1.4.  Specifically what parts of 1.4 would you like to see in EA, we have already included some of 1.4 in EA.  We don't to say we support 1.4 until we are 100% compliant.

General Board / Re: Reverse Engineer using a DDL file
« on: March 08, 2002, 04:17:13 am »
Hello,

At the moment the only way to import database information is via an ODBC connection.  However we do have this request on our list of future features and we will be reviewing it at a later date for inclusion into EA.

Thanks for your feedback.

General Board / Re: Designing stored procedures
« on: March 06, 2002, 04:33:01 am »
Hello,

On our website we have a PDF which details how to do database modelling in EA.  In this document it mentions how to model stored procedures.

Hope this helps.

General Board / Re: How to get custom .wmf to appear on diag?
« on: March 02, 2002, 02:19:38 am »
Hello,

The only thing that comes to mind is if the defined stereotype and the one assigned to the object are not the same.   The stereotypes are case sensitive.  Let us know if this doesn't solved the problem.
