General Board / Spell Check greyed out in 3.5
« on: October 29, 2002, 01:47:42 pm »
I just installed EA 3.5 and I notice that Edit->Spell check is greyed out.  Is there a legitimate reason for that to happen?


General Board / Re: Collaborative Development?

I have just started to use EA, and have not looked at any of the betas.  I get the impression from this thread that 3.5 will allow models to be stored in MySQL databases.  Will there be a mechanism to allow work to carry on while away from the database (travelling with Laptop fpor example) and changes to be integrated on return?

Also, how stable are EA betas in general?  Are they usable in a production environment?

Thanks for the confirmation!  More importantly, thank you for confirming that this is a display only problem that will not affect the integrity of the model.

1. How do you obtain "is composed of" information in the "properties browser"?

At the bottom of the property browser I see 5 tabs.  The fifth one has a picture that looks like a class diagram.  If I select that tab and then select Class A I get a display like this:

- Class A
 - <symbol> is composed of
      Class B

2. How did you create the association between class A and class B? Did you choose "associate" from the tools bar, or did you choose another type of association?

Trivial case:

Start with a blank diagram.
Create class A and Class B by clicking on the class icon in the tool bar.
Click on Associate in the toolbar
Drag from Class A to Class B

I am using EA 3.1 build 504,a nd I am new to EA so perhaps I am misunderstanding something.

When I create a simple association (solid lign, nop arrowheads) from class A to class B, the property browser tells me that A "Is composed of" B, which is not the case.  I cannot seem to create an association which is not represented by the property browser as either inheritence or aggregation.

Is this a bug or am I just misunderstanding the intention?

I find it interesting that all name suggestions so far have included the word "Unified".

This term originated in the unification of previously different/competing processes which were significant in their own right.  I don't think that is what is happening here.

Perhaps it would be wise to start at the beginning and define the goals of and reason for the existence of this project.  With that well understood, a name can be chosen that reflects the project's purpose.
