General Board / Importing HTML Code for reverse Engineering
« on: June 20, 2002, 12:49:45 pm »
OK, I had a nice long message composed, hit the esc key by mistake and now I'm doing it again ???

Went through the steps to reverse engineer java code and got the packages, diagrams and source code imported just fine.  I did the same only changed the type to HTML from JAVA in the dialog box and I saw all the file names quickly scroll by just like the java files, the Packages were created and diagram pages but the diagram pages were blank - they had no class diagrams.  Course with no components on the diagrams, I couldn't select View Source Code.

Did I miss a step or is there a problem with importing HTML (and JSP) code to create diagrams?

General Board / Re: Task Lists
« on: June 06, 2002, 03:32:04 pm »
Thanks for the input.  I was thinking of running a report from access but since we are using Access 2000 it wants to convert.  All that works just fine but our project managers balk of having to go through that when they can generate reports for issues, etc via EA.  I guess another question is if there are any plans to upgrade to Access 2000.  Probably still too many people on older versions  ;) to convert yet.

General Board / Task Lists

The help system says at the present time there is no report for the task list.  Are there plans in the near future to implement a report?

General Board / Task List
« on: June 06, 2002, 03:38:03 pm »
When you bring up the System Workspace it shows the task list.  Is it possible to modify the format to include the dates?  Also it automatically sorts in LIFO (most recent on top) order.  The order can be changed via right click on heading but it doesn't remain between sessions.  Is there a way to set it to ascending order as the default?

Thanks, Al

General Board / Re: EA Project based on RUP
« on: May 29, 2002, 09:49:55 am »
 :)Am working on a base project to try and follow the ICONIX process which is a middle of the road methodology between RUP and eXtreme Programming.  We are also developing check lists and report templates in Word so am thinking of developing high level diagrams made up mainly of hyperlinks to these documents and parts of the methodology manual we are developing for our company.

General Board / Object attributes in Java
« on: January 31, 2002, 01:19:09 pm »
In 3.0 I would create a class object in a logic diagram and if I created an attribute and defined it as a property it would display a "create" button and it would set up the setters and getters for me.  Now in 3.1 I have to finish the object after typing in the attributes, open it up again and then the create button will appear.  Something changed between 3.0 and 3.1.

Uml Process / What looks like an Industry trend?
« on: December 12, 2002, 04:39:45 pm »
Our organization has been moving to e-business with Java.  We are looking at UML using EA and have tentively adopted it as a standard.  Our development system is using Websphere Application Server and the IDE is Websphere Application Studio Developer.  Rational has come out with Rational XDE which can integrate with Websphere, Macromedia is coming out with an integrated ColdFusion server for Websphere, Dreamweaver will integrate someday with Websphere, and other companies are also proposing products that integrate with application servers.  Is EA looking at this trend?  Course now we are seeing talk of IBM buying Rational and a rumor that Microsoft is also bidding for Rational.  How do you see these trends affecting your product?  (Hope I picked the right forum for this).


As far as I know there isn't any round trip engineering, etc.  Powerbuilder has it's own language and it's code is stored in a proprietary file format.  Of course my experience is with Powerbuilder 5, 6 and 8.  Don't do powerbuilder anymore.
