General Board / Re: Possible feature...
« on: March 02, 2002, 02:22:58 am »

Both of your points are relatively straight forward to implement, we will look at including them in a future version.

General Board / Re: Reimport versus synchronizing
« on: March 01, 2002, 05:03:47 am »

The code generation side has an option to achieve what I think you are after.  If you bring up the 'Generate Code' screen for an individual class and click on the 'Advanced' button, now make sure the 'Replace (overwrite) existing source file' is selected.  The next time you generate the code the existing source code is completely overwritten.

As for reimport then is no such option, we will look at including one in a future version.  Thanks for the feedback.

General Board / Visual Foxpro support?
« on: February 18, 2002, 03:09:47 am »
This message was incorrect posted to the 'Future Plans' board.  It was originally posted on the 13-Feb-02 6:34pm by sjg0526.

Any plans to provide support for Visual Foxpro?  I know many in the development community who would love this.  :)

General Board / Re: Directory structure during code generation
« on: February 08, 2002, 04:13:45 am »

What you have suggested should not be too hard to implement.  We will investigate what would be required to include this feature, and determine when we could incorporate it into a future version of Enterprise Architect.  Thanks for the feedback.

General Board / Re: Colaboration Diagram
« on: February 11, 2002, 02:57:59 am »

Currently EA does support collaboration diagrams (see EAExample.eap which is distributed with the EA setup file, goto View->Dynamic View->Collaboration).  However you will need to create an analysis diagram and then follow the instructions in the help file, see 'collaboration' in the help file's index.  Hope this helps.

General Board / Re: Xor-association
« on: February 11, 2002, 02:21:07 am »

As yet we haven't had a detailed look at all of the UML 1.4 spec., we hope to be do this in the first half of this year.   We will be including more and more of the UML 1.4 additions as time goes on - if you would like to suggest a priority based on your needs, then we will consider them.

General Board / Re: Qualifiers
« on: February 11, 2002, 02:47:54 am »

Currently EA does allow you to assign qualifiers to both Source and Destination roles of associations, however they will not display in the diagrams.  We will make a note of this feature and look at including it in a future version of EA.  Thanks for the feedback.

Thanks for the feedback, we will look at changing this in a future release of EA.

General Board / Re: VB uses Friend not Protected
« on: February 07, 2002, 03:36:04 am »

When you say VB are you referring to VB.Net?  I have checked the syntax for both VB and VB.Net, VB.Net supports both Protected and Friend, yet VB seems to only support protected.  We will add the additional scope definitions (for friend, protectedfriend) to VB.Net soon to EA.  Thanks for the feedback.

General Board / Re: Control over Generated DLL Statement delimiter
« on: February 02, 2002, 04:18:59 am »

Currently it is not possible to define the delimiter, however it wouldn't be too hard to include in a future version.  We will see what can be added, thanks for your feedback.

General Board / Re: Aggregation relationship
« on: December 18, 2001, 02:30:38 am »

Aggregation has proved a surprisingly difficult relationship to get a handle on. Some people expect one set of behaviour - others the opposite.
Going back to the UML Specification (version 1.4) p. 2-22 the definition states

"aggregation :
when placed on one end (the "target' end), specifies whether the class on the target end is an aggregation with respect to the class on the other end (the "source' end). Only one end can be an aggregation.
Possibilities are:
none - The target class is not an aggregate
aggregate - the Target class is an aggregate; therefore the source is a part and must have the aggregation value of none
composite - The target class is a composite; therefore the source is a part and must have the aggregation value of none. The part is strongly owned by the compositie and may not be part of any other composite.

The diamond is placed on the aggregate end (target) and the part end (source) is left plain.
So if one draws an aggregation link from source A to target B, B is the aggregate by default and shows the diamond.

I checked this with a couple of other tools out of curiosity and the behaviour is essentially the same as above -
draw from A to B -
make link an aggregation
B by default is the aggregate (with diamond)

So when generating code the expected behaviour would be for B (target/aggregate) to have a variable (reference or value) to the part (A)

Header files will be addressed very! shortly (apologies for that)

Getters and setters are not generated by default ... this could be added if the contained type was a pointer or reference - which brings up the containment issue. Some of this was modified for the very latest release of EA - I will recheck the output and correct any further problems here.

Hope the above helps - we have tried to follow the specification as closely as possible - but are always open to other ideas and suggestions.

We have changed aggregations in the latest release of EA (build 423).  Can you download and retest the problems you were having.  Let us know if you have any other problems.

I have made a note of your issues and we will look at them in the near future.  Thanks for the feeback.

General Board / Re: Importing From Poseidon Argo format
« on: January 27, 2002, 03:32:08 am »

I am not familiar with Argo, however doing a quick search on the internet, it appears like you can get it to export to a XMI file. This file can then be used to import into EA, assuming it is using the correct format.  The problem with XMI is that there are many different formats, and I would suggest that you try a combination of options and see which one gives the best results.

Hope this helps.

General Board / Re: Common Warehouse Metamodel (CWM)?
« on: January 28, 2002, 04:42:53 am »

At this stage we really haven't looked at CWM in great detail, so we will make a note of your point and see what we can include in a future version of EA.  Thanks for the feedback.
