General Board / Re: Sequence diag : show param & argument on m
« on: August 28, 2012, 10:04:22 pm »
Ok thanks for your answers - the notes seems to be a good option for the values.

If I need to specify the parameters name and type of an operation on each message, here is what I currently do :
- if the operation exists in the lifelines's classifier, the Message properties are automatically populated as follows (once the operation has been selected) :
  * Message = test(String, String), and Parameters = firstname, lastname
- if my lifeline has no such operation defined, I currently set Message = SetName, and Parameters = firstname :String, lastname :String

Although it displays fine on the diagram, is it the right way to do it?
Would it be possible to have a feature to copy this operation to the lifeline's classifier, if one has been set?


General Board / Sequence diag : show param & argument on msg
« on: August 28, 2012, 06:49:43 pm »

I need to show on a sequence diagram both the Parameters and Values in a message sent, by invoking an operation

Currently I have  :
SetName (name : String, firstname : String) if the Arguments field is empty.
SetName (Martin, Bob) if the Params & Arguments fields are not empty.

Is there a way to show on the message :
SetName (name : String = Martin, firstname : String = Bob)  ?

Yep, transformation templates should let me define new rules for association classes.

thanks Geert but the ERD transformation doesn't help.
From what I can see, association classes aren't supported by a DDL transformation.

The association class is transformed to an independant table with no association/FK. I would have expected the association class to be transformed into a table with 2FKeys (to each associated table) alongside the additional attributes. In other words it should replace the JoinClassAClassB table

So the workaround would involve avoiding the use of association classes and use a standard class between the 2 classes instead.

General Board / DDL with an association class
« on: August 16, 2012, 04:32:58 pm »

I'm using an association class (e.g. similar to EA help example : Employee and Company classes with an association class : Job), which I'm trying to generate a DDL for (database relational model).

If I have a many to many multiplicity between Employee & Company, EA generates a JoinEmployeeToCompany table with 2 foreign keys. The Job table is generated but is not associated with any other table.

I'm a bit confused with the DDL generation rules - if anyone has some info on this subject


General Board / Re: Diagram Filters : source/target for connectors

Hi Roy,

It's done.
Is there any way to export so I can copy a set of diagram filters to another EAP?


General Board / Diagram Filters : source/target for connectors?
« on: August 13, 2012, 10:14:24 pm »

I've used diagram filters to easily hide dependency connectors between interfaces on a component diagram.
So I created a connector filter with ConnectorType Not Equals Dependency.
But I have other dependency connector on my diagram (not between 2 interfaces) that I need to keep on the diagram.
Would it be possible in the future for Sparx to add Source and Target fields to filter on ? e.g. I would need to be able to set sourcetype Equals interface and targettype Equald interface.

Hi Geert,

Yes this is indeed feasible via an MDG but if Sparx was planning to support it, that would save time.

I'm wondering however if the MDG is not gonna lead to issues in displaying the images when you start resizing an element. I have a feeling vector graphics aren't properly supported.

I cannot find the EIP patterns to represent a file transfer, message channel, etc as listed on from the ArchiMate project.

Does EA plan to suport EIP in the future?


General Board / Sequence notes aren't formatted
« on: August 10, 2012, 11:21:18 pm »

I sometimes find useful enabling the sequence notes on Seq. diagrams so that an explanation appears next to each message.
Only downside is that it tends to looks messy or difficult to read so I wanted to apply a colour code e.g. use a different colour for returned messages.

Unfortunately notes aren't rendered with any format that may be applied in the messages' notes.

Any option I haven't enabled, or does it sound like a feature request?

Hi Helmut,

thanks for the info!  :)


General Board / Install EA on Oracle DB repository : patch
« on: August 10, 2012, 06:20:06 pm »

We're trying to set up an EA project on an Oracle Express DBMS.
I used the files and instructions from :
The file OracleScriptUpdatePatch.xml is available to download and contains a number of updates to apply on tables and columns --> however the instructions do not describe what to do with this.

Anyone know if this is mandatory after instructions on are followed so it'll work fine?
How can we apply this patch under Oracle?


General Board / Transition properties view?
« on: July 11, 2012, 04:46:50 pm »

After I've enabled the Element Properties view in EA, it properly shows the properties when I click on an element from a diagram (e.g. a class).
I'd like to do the same with a transition/association so I could easily update the alias without having to double click on the association.

It there any way to achieve this?


General Board / Re: Multiple selection on associations
« on: June 06, 2012, 04:45:34 pm »
Thanks for the info -to apply a chosen colour to a number of links on a diagram, I use the Get Style once and Apply Style to all links I want to apply this colour.

I couldn't figure out how to assign a shortcut (e.g. shift-alt-Y) to the Apply Style command. Any idea?

General Board / Multiple selection on associations
« on: June 05, 2012, 12:05:52 am »

Is it possible to select multiple associations/connectors from a diagram to apply a style (e.g. change the line colour, apply the Lateral Vertical line style, etc.)?
Here is a recurring issue I'd like to sort : working on a activity diagram with control & object flows, I need to change the line colour for all object flows that write to an object (source = activity, destination = object). I'd like to select all control flows instead of the elements e.g. with a toggle select elements vs select connectors.

Is this possible or does it sound like a feature request?
