General Board / Re: EA 9 Beta

Bah humbug. It's a pity because it does make you feel like you are of some value for all the $$$ you forked for EA. (yip, my company wouldn't buy a license so I had to pay out of my own pocket, sad indeed. but I'll get over it)

I am very confused by this whole thread. I have posted many bug reports and enhancement suggestions using the online links for such things. It doesn't take effort to follow the correct process. So far all I see in this thread is useless spam.

I will however say to Sparx, unlike when I log a bug on Talend's website I have no way of keeping track of bugs or suggestions to know that anyone actually is taking it seriously or that an feature request will be included in a future patch etc. Unless of course I am missing something, it would be nice to have access to something like Mantis for tracking bugs/features and also would allow people to see what is already logged and not duplicate.   :-?

General Board / Re: Microsoft Visio - stupid question?
« on: May 19, 2011, 06:02:38 pm »
Not really what I am looking for, want to export to Visio of use diagram features in Visio and export to EA directly from there.

This is a module that I would pay for it if was an optional full featured component. (I think many people would, especially with Sharepoint becoming widely used in corporates)

Does EA integrate with Visio 2010? Is it an add-on or a future enhancement?

General Board / Re: Generate SQL from data model diagram

I want to see the SQL select statement so that I can include it in the documentation to hand over to the developer.

DDL just gives me the "structural" information of the tables but it should be a fairly simple exercise to generate the actuall select / insert SQL statements from those tables.

Currently I use Aquadata studio for accessing databases, when I link the tables in a query builder it creates the SQL for me which I hand over to the developer along with the DDL. EA allows me to create the tables, keys and relationships so it would be nice to just have the option of including the actual SQL (select/insert) statements that would be associated with those tables.

Hope that makes sense.

v9Beta3 - is it possible to generate SQL along with the DDL from a data model?

I want to genereate the select statement with joins etc from the data model, seems like an simple enough thing to do if the DDL is being generate but for the life of me I can't find a way of doing it.

BTW - I have the corporate version, not sure if that makes a difference.

Cheers  8-)

General Board / Importing a view does not contain attributes
« on: May 06, 2011, 09:06:12 pm »
Why when I import a table it is created as a class with attributes but when I import a view it does not create it as a class and recognise the columns as attributes?

I get the relationships to the parent classes but I want to display the view as a class with the attributes it contains, which is not clear on the diagram.

General Board / Disable automatic popup of properties box
« on: May 03, 2011, 10:02:00 pm »
How do I disable automatic popup of the properties box when adding a new element to a diagram?

I just want to add all elements then go and edit them.

(version 9 beta 3)   :-?

General Board / Facts and dimensions for database design
« on: April 29, 2011, 05:42:33 pm »
How do I document facts and dimensions for a database ADS? I can't find anything other than standard ERD diagramming (version 9 beta3)  :-?

Bugs and Issues / Re: Version 9, Build 904 Crashes

Got a similar error to #intrepid, program had to shut down, lost a bit of work but nothing too hectic.

Using Windows 7 64-bit (see a pattern?)   :-?

Tried that. Played around with different settings but it didn't fix the problem.

Bugs and Issues / Tables with more than one relationship overlap
« on: May 20, 2011, 05:22:10 am »
If I import tables and 2 tables share more than 1 associations one overlaps the other so it looks like a single relationship, I have to drag the line to see the other one. Sometimes I only find out about the other relationship when moving the elements around on the diagram.

It is highly irritating. Now I have to re-align all the elements just in case there is an overlap when creating a diagram from the table elements I am using.

Bugs and Issues / v9beta 3 - generating DDL from select tables
« on: May 12, 2011, 10:28:08 pm »
I am having a problems when generating DDL from a diagram.

I select all elements then generate DDL but only one of the tables is included in the output. Shouldn't the DDL output include all elements selected?
