Suggestions and Requests / Re: BUG: Custom Feature Suppression
« on: October 09, 2006, 01:02:49 pm »
100% agree ;)

Of course...  It may surprise you Sparxians, but (if I may speak for the other posters) we're truly interested in your views...  :)

Sparxians' participation in these forums on a more than explanatory basis is, in my view, extremely important!  It's the interplay of ideas that will make a good product great!

Suggestions and Requests / EA beta impressions
« on: August 25, 2006, 03:31:47 am »
just continue thread on EA beta impressions and now it's time for the EA beta 2:

feature visibility is nice - it's possible to set custom attribute/method/property visibilities. Stereotype thing is still unclear for me: is it intentionaly only first class stereotype is displayed (if several of them are set)? Attribute shows all it's stereotypes - not only first as class - is this feature or bug? Paolo's TM  ;D

Realizations and dependencies now have source and target role windows - this shouldn't be I guess. And it's possible to set realization or dependencies source/target features - roles/multiplicities are even shown in dependency case (constraints and qualifiers aren't) . That's non UML compliant.

There is missing help info for virtual inheritance (generalization property)

I second sargasso's suggestion

Thanks, Simonn, for the notice - I'll try to test beta2 ASAP, but that's going to be only next week.

The quicklinker "behaviour" occured, when I had tried metamodel tab.

Suggestions and Requests / EA beta1 impressions
« on: August 08, 2006, 03:40:54 pm »

so, what about EA beta1 - there is no difference beta1 and later versions at first glance, so decided to play for a while and to see it in action

I wasn't interested in XMI 2/2.1, so directly went to class diagram.
Classes with multiple stereotypes rock, however attributes with multiple stereotypes are broken - only the first stereotype is shown, even if multiple stereotypes are applied to an attribute. There is still no better feature visibility control  - sad, very sad message.

Next I have tried to investigate metamodel section - class properties window doesn't pop-up when a new class is placed. Very strange, because in class section this feature works. Another beta1 feature ???

Also, after some time quick link has refused to draw any other link than dependency - hmm, hmm I said, it's enough of beta1 for me  ;D

Suggestions and Requests / Re: XMI 2.0 wanted desperately!

beta1 already has XMI 2 & 2.1 support  ;D


all these suggestions were registered long time ago (half a year and more) by Paolo, me and others - search would reveal exact dates and topics.... however nothing has changed - hope, that only yet  ???

answer is the same as for many other languages, which exists
there is no way to support all languages - only for major ones...
maybe someday, when will be reverse engineering templates

to be short - there is no way for the EA to build any link except dependency from CProtocolArray and CTestProtocol.

You won't get any more details from reverse engineering, because here EA strictly follows UML - and UML is not for any particular coding language, it's an independent notation.
Also you won't get any links for method argument list or method body code, however any user will say, that there are some dependencies...
You will have to add dependencies manually  ::)

nothing more could be done by EA from the strict UML view - typedef only defines, what type of elements will be stored.

From relaxed UML view, dependency from typedef class to CTestProtocol could be added, stereotype for dependency could be <<use>> or other

I'm almost sure, that EA 6.5 won't support all 25 tunable parameters - EA isn't the XML/XMI tool, so to expect such broad functionality (6.5/7.0) is too generous.
There would be 2-3 checkboxes in import/export window at most ;D

agree, this should be corrected - and pretty easily. Change some dropdown settings.


I suppose, EA is built using Raize components or something very similar :o

and maybe there should be BUG in the subject  ;D

Suggestions and Requests / Copying many elements
« on: May 29, 2006, 05:14:22 am »
 If you will try to copy many classes to another package diagram and paste as new objects, you'll be asked for each copied class name. Would be nice to see the prompt with the checkbox option - use original names or smth like this.

Should links to be copied too? now they don't

if there is a set constraint, then by resizing association multiplicity text, there should be possible to align multiplicity with the constraint on the same line.
Note: aggregation is handled differently than association ;-) sometimes reacts to ordered, sometimes not...

Now constraint always stays below multiplicity

Would be nice to get:
* {set}

If multiplicity is ordered (checkbox is checked), then we have:

Would be nice to have a chance to resize to:
* {set, ordered} OR * {set; ordered}

Note2: currently EA doesn't allow to join constraints

Copying moved to separate thread:;action=display;num=1148904862;start=0#0


I'm almost sure, that Paolo will say something uniquetm about such EA behaviour  ;D
