Suggestions and Requests / Export to Doors
« on: January 10, 2007, 12:33:51 am »
I know Doors is soposed to be the tool for requirement managment, but if I want to get the requiremets to very lo level I would have to create them in EA (where I do my use cases and analysis) and then export them.

If there was a way for it it aould be very helpfull.

Suggestions and Requests / reverse engineering to component diagram
« on: March 13, 2005, 10:04:43 pm »
    After reversing code to class diagram EA should know pretty well where diagram classes are located and therefore able to crate a minimal component diagram with the correspodant files.

    This could be good for helping to locate internactions between reversed components and for any "newby' in the project.

Suggestions and Requests / inner class generation
« on: January 19, 2005, 01:00:17 am »
is it planned to be supported?

Suggestions and Requests / Synchronisation by template
« on: January 19, 2005, 12:59:10 am »
  We work within nemaspaces in CPP file too. the problem is that when we generate a new method in EA it appends method at the end of file , instead of inside corresponding namesapce.
 I havn't found how to change it through code generation templates, you can change there maybe for 1st time code generation, but not for addings.
   any ideas?

answer (by simonm):
At the moment it's not possible...  
I guess you'll just need to manually move the methods EA creates into the right namespace.

is it possible to make some attribute for each class marking that file was created through EA so it will add code using generation templates rules?

any way, methods are updated fine in header file, can't some similar technique be used here too?

Suggestions and Requests / answers in forum
« on: January 19, 2005, 01:03:24 am »
I see many unanswered tpopics in this forum.

a suggest can be accepted for long run, short run or rejected and I assume it takes some time to deside this things but I think you should answer all.

Suggestions and Requests / Sequnce diagram usability
« on: January 09, 2005, 11:50:43 pm »
I've been trying the sequence diagram to check it.
I've discovered what seems to be some usability problems (at least in comparison to other CASE tools I've used):

1) After placing an element in diagram for the 1st time - no matter where you moved it it will apear in documantation in the same place.
2) Messages can not be drop on life line in their chronological orther but from top-to-top and then placed, this is very tedius.
3) Objects can only be added on top or under other objects , it is problematic if I want to show that they were only created ater (though it is no critical issue).

This problems make the ramp-up for a beginer harder,
and when you try to convince people to use it, it turns to an obstacle.

Suggestions and Requests / MACRO recognission
« on: January 09, 2005, 10:42:34 pm »
I have big project with  a lot of macros.
I would like to reverse engineer this projects so I can keep their modeling and docs up-to-date.

Though macros have a clear naming convention in all my projects (*_API) the only way to recognized them for EA is enering them one by one, which is hardly realistic in a projects with 500 classes libs.

it would be very helpfull if I could add the language macros list somthing like "*_API" and it would ercognise all macros alone.

Is it something dificult to aplly?


General Board / Copying stereotypes

Is there a way to create a stereotype based no an existing one?
I would like to duplicate the table stereotype for other uses.

General Board / EA doesnt support retrieving prior revisions of VC
« on: August 07, 2009, 03:18:51 pm »
Hello Martin,

EA does not allow importing from version control (either Get Latest or Retrieve Prior Revision) when a package is checked-out, because importing overwrites the package existing in the model, with the one retrieved from version control.

If the model package is currently checked-out, then there might be many accumulated changes that have not yet been committed to version control.

EA prevents the possibility of inadvertently discarding any such unsaved (not yet committed) changes, by disallowing these VC import operations on checked-out packages.

Retrieving history does update the file. However, when you check-out again, EA retrieves the latest revision again and imports that.

Currently, EA does not support retrieving prior revisions of VC packages for editing.

Best Regards,

Subject: Registered Bug Report - Retriving history in VC does not update file

The following Registered Bug Report was submitted by Martin Terreni
 on Tue Aug  4 19:02:29 EST 2009.


EA Version:  7.5.847
EA Edition:  Corporate Floating
EA Add In:  No Add-In
Repository Type:  SQL Server
Operating System:  Windows XP
Service Pack:  2




Retriving history in VC does not update file


using SVN
When retriving a version from fiel history it can only be done when package is checked in and then it does not update the actual file in VC , so checking out returns the unwanted version any way.


General Board / Life cycle presentation in EA
« on: July 20, 2009, 11:40:26 pm »
We have now a web system we use to document our life cycle in.
In this system we can say a process called ,for example, "Testing plan" begins when "High level desing" is at 90%. Then you can see in a Gant like graph that one process begins when the other is at 90%.

Any suggetsion how to do it, present it in EA?

General Board / Generating data for connectors linked to element f
« on: May 05, 2009, 04:42:30 pm »
After creating links between elements feature odferent classes (new blessed feature of EA) we discovered  it is still not possible to extract it to RTF reports.

This is a mail I got from sparx:
Hello Martin,

I assume you are referring to the element Feature: Class.Attribute -> Class.Attribute If so, this is a new feature that has yet to be implemented in the RTF reporting templates.

I will pass this as a request.

I hope it happen soon...

General Board / Package component imterfaces
« on: April 16, 2009, 02:07:02 pm »
Package component can't accept component interfaces and ports.Is it a bug or is package component just a package with a different stereotype.

General Board / Version control status not checked with provider
« on: March 03, 2009, 12:05:56 am »
We have a very big issue here with 7.5. EA is not checking the status through VC provider any more, it is relaying on the fact that all VC actions are done through EA, but let me show you one of our main scenarios which we have running now:
1)      SupertTelecom adapts new version of Amdocs products (Nextv)
2)      We create a copy of Nextv EA DB called SupertTelecom
3)      We copy the Nextv SVN repository content to anew repository called SupertTelecom
4)      We change all XMIs file configuration string
5)      We change the configuration string in t_genopt (because the same user may work both on SupertTelecom and Nextv) and in the package flags in t_package
6)      Now we have a copy of Nextvcalled SupertTelecom on which to design SupertTelecom customizations
The Problem:
      What if we skipped adding some XMI to VC? Or if we mixed by mistake packages from a wrong repository (which has happen to  us). In 7.1 we’ll notice immediately, sine we will see the red symbol next to the package and we can fix it, but in 7.5 a user will not see it and might check out the parent package losing all the data. This things may happen even if working through EA, since sometimes the problem  is in VC.

Is any one else finding this problematic? No ones cares?
