Paolo, could you share with us your adopted naming conventions?

Suggestions and Requests / BUG: Instance classifier window
« on: April 03, 2006, 08:09:13 am »

instance classifier window doesn't provide functionality as should be - there is no way to select existing package (namespace). There are only options in the namespace combobox: <any> and Logical View

I believe, this combobox should contain all packages (namespaces) and filter only selected package elements

send requst to sparx with the link to this thread :)
then sparxians will vote for this feature :-D

they vote for 2-3 line changes in a code also...

 SparX template language is kind of imperative-declarative language. Of course, tutorial and much more (good) examples needed for easier and quicker understanding.
Template language online help/documentation is tricky, some aspects aren't written at all, only trivial examples, no tutorial, no BNF/EBNF or  metamodel of language - these topics could be improved much by sparxians.
I had and still have a request for TRANSFORM_REFERENCE ;) maybe in EA 12 we'll see it ;D

XSLT has longer learning curve, there is no doubt. And there is no need to take a survey for usability and other things - template language is easier to use, maybe not so powerfull as XSLT would be

IT is a special region of human activity, where learning through the life is exposed mostly - you are forced to learn new things, new languages - it's a price to pay for what you, I and others choose

short answer - no

Suggestions and Requests / OCL bugs
« on: February 20, 2006, 09:23:03 am »
OCL validation doesn't work as supposed:
there were defined 2 rules:
test   -> inv: number > 1 (should be ok, but model validation says opposite)
test2 -> inv: number < 1 (shouldn't be ok, but  >:( )

Also not sure, if Test3 class warning should be shown (it dissappear, if association type changed to not defined)

registered as the bug

it has good reasoning, but in such case I would made disabled, but visible (greyed) thumbs if sorting on

yeah, that's nice - why sort was turned on by default?
Many users (and I) got confused by this  ;D maybe better solution would be to disable thumbs when sort on, but not to hide totally

Suggestions and Requests / Class attribute/method rendering and ordering
« on: February 13, 2006, 08:21:06 am »
Would like to see more intelligent class attributes/method rendering, when there is not specified type:
right now if type is left blank, attributes and methods are rendered as attribute1: and Method1(): - should be attribute1 and Method1()
Use colon for rendering only if type field is not blank - it's not hard to implement ;)

Also in latests builds manual attribute/method ordering feature dissolved - there were 2 little thumbs to move attribute/method up and down - now only an empty space is left ???

Who stole those pretty thumbs? guess, sparxians need to do full investigation on this matter  ;D


try this for the class, which has Text() method and text attribute - add notes for each and try to see difference ;-)

also, one more bug: if diagram name contains symbols as ./\| & so on - there is no way to save diagram image (due to not allowed char in diagram name)  ;)

there is no way to control page margins - margin fields in page setup window are greyed (measurement units should be system's default, not inches)

It may be related with this:

there is left too much space on the right side of diagram image - no way to control it (as others also)

Also, when saving diagram to image, if you previously save image in one format and change to another, file name with an extension doesn't change - possible solution: don't show format in file name field at all - image type is controlled by save type selection)

About notes - in my example note is attached to output() method:

method, but indication of that isn't helpful - if there would be output attribute, there wouldn't be any distinction between attribute/method. Suggest at least indicate method note with the method(), in my case it's output(). Better solution - full method and arguments declaration - output(ms : AgMessage) or output(AgMessage) in my case.

AgExternalEvent class has all attributes and methods hidden in feature visibility window - class has 3 field areas - class name, attribute, method. Class1 class is empty and has only 2 areas - it would be logical to follow united display style.

Also field of improvement - to let user to decide, which particular methods/attributes to show in this class, for example:
class EA has 2 methods: add() and delete(), in one diagram it's needed only add() method, while in another delete(). Solution - to make attribute/method checkbox list

External package presentation in class name (Calculations::Sum) is controled for a whole diagram - I believe, that this should be an option for each diagram entity

BTW, in sequence diagram objects should be underlined or not? now it's not underlined in sequence diagrams
