General Board / Status bar not showing query results
« on: July 14, 2016, 10:06:15 pm »

in pre 12 versions of EA, the statusbar would show the results of an executed query (e.g. number of rows selected: #), but somehow I can't get v12 to show this as well. Any ideas on how to bring that to the surface?

Thanx in advance,


i'm trying to update a few glossary items but I keep getting the blocking message that "A glossary with the same name already exists". Anybody knows how to prevent this from happening?


General Board / Search use cases with no structured scenarios
« on: June 29, 2016, 10:09:49 pm »

I'm looking for a way to search for use cases for which no structured scenario has been defined yet. Trying to do something with a query that joins the t_object and t_scenarios on object_id's but then I only get the use cases where a structured scenario has been defined, and I'm looking for the ones without.

Any thoughts?

Thanx in advance


does anyone know of a simple solution to this pesky MS Access error, without having to delve into Access itself?

Thanx in advance


General Board / resultset query in search folder not ordered
« on: March 09, 2016, 03:04:41 am »

I've created a search folder under Model views and populated it with the results of a self-defined search query. In the query I've used the "order by" clause and the results from the query itself are neatly ordered, but the same list in the search folder is not. I can't seem to find where or how this list can be ordered as well. Apart from that, it's strange that apparently not all sql statements in the query are processed.

Is this due to the fact that the 'order by' is just a clause and not a proper SQL statement in its own right?

Any thoughts on how to solve this?


General Board / Paragraph numbering in generated RTF
« on: February 18, 2016, 08:59:14 pm »

I'm tryinh to figure out how to set the right paragraph numbering in my RTF template. So far I've come with editing the style of Heading 1 through 4, which looks to be in order, at least in the template designer. But the output shows that somehow the generator skipped over levels 3 (e.g. 1.1.1) and 4 (e.g., going straight to level 5 but contuining to number from the first instance of level 2 (e.g.

Does anyone know how to fix this? Should I do something with lists and override?

Thanx in advance.


I'm trying to generate a structured scenario from an activity diagram that includes activities with a sub activity diagram as composite diagram. Apparently the generator isn't able to recognize the composite diagram. Instead I get an error saying that the validation failed because of an invalid element used in the diagram. Looking up this invalid element it points to the activity with the composite diagram.

Is there anyway to work around this, apart from making a sub use case out of the composite diagram?


General Board / Incorporating contents external document in RFT report
« on: January 28, 2016, 03:19:22 am »

I was wondering if there's a way to incorporate the contents of an external document - which I've related to an element, say a use case, using Properties - Related - Files - Local File - in an generated RTF document?


General Board / EA handling network error
« on: January 26, 2016, 02:34:15 am »
Every now and then EA seems to have trouble dealing with network errors. After a session ended with this error, it's impossible to restart EA and open the *.eap again: the same error keeps occuring. When I copy the *eap to a local folder and try to open it from there everything works fine.

I've tried to delete the locking file (*.ldb) manually but then Windows says the file cannot be deleted because user 'admin' had it still open.

Any thought on solving this issue, not being transferring *eap file to an Oracle database :-)?


General Board / Including activity diagram in generated document
« on: January 13, 2016, 01:44:23 am »
Can someone tell me how to include an activity diagram in a generated document, but without the individual activities? So just a picture of the diagram, but not a listing of the activities.

Thanx in advance

General Board / Generation structured scenario from diagram fails
« on: October 26, 2015, 10:27:04 pm »

I'm trying to generate a structured scenario in a use case from an activity diagram. The validation however keeps failing on some - not all - decision symbols not having an outgoing control flow. I have replaced the decision symbols, control flows and activities they lead to, but still the validation fails. Any suggestions on how to correct this problem?

General Board / Showing user stories in relationship matrix
« on: July 10, 2015, 02:05:45 am »
I can't seem to get a relationship matrix to show user stories, neither as source nor as target. The matrix does show artifacts, documents and checklists (all as stereotyped artifacts from the Document toolbox), but none of the other stereotypes. I have linked business rules (stereotyped requirements) to user stories using a trace link but only the business rules show up in the matrix...

Any ideas?

General Board / EA cannot get checkout lock from TFS
« on: June 05, 2015, 11:59:32 pm »
I just setup version control in EA using TFS as provider. I've placed all packages under version control, which shows in the Project Browser by the small key in front of each package.

When I try to checkout a package, however, I get the message: "The item cannot be locked for checkout in the workspace. Checkout locks are not supported in local workspaces."

However when I look in TFS under Team/Team Project Collection Settings/Source Control/tab Workspace settings the workspace I've setup is most definitely server-based, not local....

Anyone knows how to solve this?


General Board / Integration with MS Express tools
« on: April 26, 2015, 04:33:40 am »
Does anyone know if it's possible to integrate EA with TFS Server 2013 Express for version control provision and use SQLServer 2014 Express as database?


General Board / Changing properties of multiple selected elements
« on: April 29, 2014, 07:53:29 pm »

I would like to know if there's a way to change a property of multiple selected elements at once. In my specific case I want to change the stereotype of a number of use cases in one go, instead of having to open the properties page of each use case separately.

Thanx in advance
