General Board / Re: ArchiMateŽ Model Exchange File Format
« on: August 17, 2015, 06:57:05 am »
Oh I'm totally with you that EA is a cost effective tool, but it's amazing the quotes you get from systems integrators and the like to deliver it as a solution.  For example you may have a rule in an organisation that if an application is going to be deployed to more than five works stations it must be packaged for deployment.  Even tho' it's simple to break the EA .msi out of the .exe and load into a deployment tool it's hard to get the engagement down to under 15 person hours of chargeable time.  
Right see where you are coming from. A "system integrator" that's milking it is the inhibitor. unfortunately you are not alone.  :(

Budgetary intervals are longer than thirty days.
Depending which edition you want of course but most people go for corporate, so US $239 isn't going to break the bank. Most businesses don't even blink at that cost. 30 days should  be more than enough to help you do a proof of concept and decide if its the right tool for the job.
Just saying people often spend more time and money than they would just purchasing the product.

You could use the 30 day trial version of Sparx EA to prove the value then you wouldn't have to worry about importing.

General Board / Re: Diagram Background Colour - HTML
« on: July 17, 2015, 06:43:59 am »
As far as I can tell the diagrams generated in HTML and RTF always have a white backgrounds and there is no way to change it. A Good idea for a future feature though.
If you really can't live without a coloured background then a possible work around is to put a boundary object on the diagram. Set the boundary to solid fill by double clicking on border and selecting border style solid. Send the boundary to the bottom z order so its behind all the other objects on the diagram by right clicking menu >z-order> send to bottom. Stretch to the size of boundary to size of the diagram. And finally change the line and fill colours to those that you desire.
Hope that helps.

The EA example does have some curious images though
Yeah whats happened to that new image library Sparxs?

Nice table about the product growth. Puts # of licenses against features introduced which suggests that the new features triggered the increase. Why do I see it the way that more licenses have been sold despite the new features?

Dunno why do you see it that way?
Granted there probably isn't a correlation between features and licenses sold.

Nice to know I was an early adopter back in 2004. Is it really that long ago, 10 years?

There was a user group presentation from Tom O'Reilley on EA V11 and on slide 37 it has the new library of images.
How does that song go?
Why are we waiting
Why are we waiting
Why are we waiting oh why oh why

Has anyone noticed this as yet?  :question
No doesn't seem to have appeared yet. Although I saw another presentation and it had a whole lot of images. Can't remember which presentation though.

I watched the webinar the other week showing the new features of Sparx Enterprise Architect V11 and in that I thought I saw a casual reference to a new image library. The webinar isn't available at present to double check so I thought I would ask on the forum. Now that V11 has been released I can't see anything about a new image library. Did I imagine it or is there a new image library on the way?

Sounds like you need to read a bit more on UML. Lots of books out there.

General Board / Re: Patterns ain't patterns
« on: July 08, 2015, 06:48:45 am »
There is a new feature called re-usable asset library. Haven't had a chance to look into it but I get the impression you can use that to manage patterns too.

General Board / Re: Keep diagram and caption on the same page in R
« on: July 01, 2015, 06:58:17 am »
Recently came across this problem again myself. I tried this technique and it worked. Put a boundary on the diagram and colour it white then change the size so it  fits on the page with the caption. You can't see the boundary as its white and it lets you control the diagram size thus controlling how it fits on the page of a generated document.
