General Board / Activity diag: control flow to 2 accept events
« on: July 07, 2011, 06:16:25 pm »

I have an activity diagram where I need to represent the following :
My control flow goes to an activity that once completed goes the first event that's occured : 'event 1' or 'event 2'

If I model 2 control flows from the activity to each of the Accept Event Action, will it definitely mean from a UML definition that my control token will go to the first event that's accepted (so if event 1 occurs, my control token goes from there - if event 2 occurs after then, there's no token available)

does it seem correct to you?
Hope it makes sense


General Board / updated objects with activity diagrams
« on: June 28, 2011, 01:12:33 am »

I created an activity diagram where I have an activity that reads properties from 2 objects to update 2 objects (one object being an input to the activity, another object existing before the activity started).
I use a combination of control flow and object flows (object flows being the pre/post cons of my activity)
Is it possible and even suggested to create a dependency or any other type of association (e.g. trace) to associate the same object "obj2" that has changed states before and after the process of an activity ?

General Board / find a connector in other diagrams
« on: June 10, 2011, 06:25:43 pm »

I'd like to know if there is a way to select a connector between 2 elements (e.g. an association between 2 classes) and find out where this connector is displayed on other diagrams
This is possible for elements and I would find it useful for connectors/associations


General Board / Use of Audit in collaborative mode
« on: May 25, 2011, 06:27:46 pm »

I'd like to use EA audit feature to keep a log of all updates carried in the model.
I currently use EA in a collaborative mode with SVN. Unfortunately the XMI don't include EAP reference data such as the glossary, images, etc.
I understand that the Audit feature will store reference data in the EAP file, so this audit log data cannot be committed by each user onto SVN to have a view of all updates made.

Is anyone using the audit feature in a collaborative mode and share its experience? Would it work using the database rather than SVN?


General Board / Retro engineering : class/SQL schema
« on: May 11, 2011, 05:40:20 pm »

My client sent me the DB schema i.e. all CREATE TABLE SQL scripts
I'd like to generate a DB diagram in EA from these scripts, and then generate a class diagram .

Any hint on how to do this?


General Board / Find opened diagram in browser
« on: May 19, 2011, 10:23:56 pm »
It doesn't seem to be possible to show the diagram that's currently opened in the Project Browser as available for Elements
It may sound useless as you open in the 1st place the diagram from the project browser, but.. if you have a hyperlink from a diagram opening a new diagram, it could be useful to show the current diagram in the browser

does it sound like a feature request if not avail?

General Board / Red arrow above requirement
« on: May 19, 2011, 12:08:59 am »

I sometimes get a red arrow on the middle top of some of my requirement elements when displayed in a diagram, but cannot figure its meaning.
Any clue?

General Board / Interaction overview diagram in EA 7.5 build 850
« on: April 27, 2011, 03:36:14 am »

I'm using EA 7.5 build 850 that oddly doesn't support object flows between interaction occurences (e.g. linked to a sequence diagram)

I tried on an earlier version of EA and it works.
Is there a workaround to get it to work on EA7.5 as I cannot upgrade the version on this specific PC I'm using?


General Board / Display both the Title and Alias for a Requirement
« on: April 18, 2011, 11:36:46 pm »
I needed to display in a requirements diagram both the name and the alias for each requirement.
I thought that EA only let me display either way
I eventually found a way to this issue for anyone who has the same need (or requirement...  ;)) :
- In your Diagram properties, enable Use Alias If Available
- In Tools > options : Diagram > Behavior > Alias usage : select the option "Alias and Name"

My question for a related need is whether I can display in EA Project Browser the alias for each element in addition to its name and  stereotype


General Board / 4+1 architectural view EA project ?
« on: November 15, 2010, 11:18:46 pm »

I'm likely to use the 4+1 architectural view project (for any information, check out Wikipedia

EA has this listed in its list of project samples but it only generates empty project (with Logical, Process view, etc.)
Has anyone used this approach and could share a sample project ?

Thanks!  :)

General Board / SysML Simulation : output of 1.#QNB  value
« on: October 08, 2010, 03:28:00 am »

I'm trying out SysML parametric diagram and EA simulation module for a customer.
I defined the script for my constraint block before creating my parametric diagram.
When I instantiated my constraint block as a constraint property, put my parameters and entered values in the simulation module, it worked ok

I then instantiated my constraint block again to create a second constraint property - for some odd reasons, I'm now getting values with 1.#QNB

any idea what's going on?

General Board / UML Profile for SCRUM ?
« on: March 09, 2010, 06:55:23 pm »

I'm looking at using EA with an agile project involving SCRUM.
Does anyone know if a UML profile is available somewhere to support the SCRUM framework, e.g. product backlog, user stories, features, tasks...


General Board / Tagged values and CSV export/import
« on: March 17, 2010, 01:44:02 am »

I created some tagged values in a number of packages that I'd like to include in my CSV file when running a CSV export.

EA doesn't support this and I was wondering if it could be added?
e.g. export Name, ..., Tagged value 1, Tagged value 2, ..., Tagged value n


General Board / UML Profile and Icons
« on: March 16, 2010, 11:55:02 pm »

I created a UML profile to define a stereotype for a Package and I'd like to specify an icon (so when I create a new element that has this stereotype in EA, it'll be displayed with a different icon).
Unfortunately Sparx only releases the XML files for existing UML profile on their resources page so I cannot see how it's been specified in the source EAP file.

I noticed in the SPEM UML profile (XML file) that the Stereotype tag has the following:

Can anyone indicate how I can specify this in the EAP file that generates the UML profile?


General Board / EA v8: Dynamic Visual Filtering ??
« on: March 11, 2010, 09:57:28 pm »

Can anyone let me know how to use Dynamic Visual Filtering, introduced in v8??
there's nothing in the EA help explaining how to make use of this.
