General Board / Re: TestDirector / WinRunner interface

I have written a plugin from EA that maps Use cases into requirements in TestDirector and creates outline tests from scenarios.

I would be willing to share this.

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / SQL Server - Change tracking
« on: September 07, 2005, 05:55:18 am »
With the lack of a real lifecycle model for requirements etc i.e with permissions, i have been looking at ways to enforce auditing. for example, we put our usecases through a lifecycle  as Proposed, Accepted, In Design, In Development, Frozen. i wanted to track the state changes of these, so added a trigger to SQL server. (first one i ever created).

looking to share ideas on this one. perhaps people have done similar stuff. was wondering doing some permission checking stuff in here to. i.e. only project manager can set things into a certain state. who knows.

This is what i implemented


[PreviousState] [nvarchar] (50) ,

[NewState] [nvarchar] (50) ,

[UserName] [nvarchar] (50),

[ChangeDate] [datetime],

[ObjectId] [int]  

CREATE TRIGGER StateTrigger ON [dbo].[t_object]
if update(Status)

insert  dbo.MCL_USE_CASE_STATE_AUDIT ( PreviousState, NewState,  UserName, ChangeDate, ObjectId)
select deleted.Status, inserted.Status, user_name(),  getDate(), deleted.Object_Id  from inserted, deleted where deleted.Object_Type = 'UseCase' and deleted.Object_id = inserted.Object_id

and as i said, first trigger on SQL server so if you can tidy up the definition then let me know :)

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Re: Mercury
« on: December 06, 2004, 05:50:54 am »
Yeah. I have done this. see my personal web site for the source code. Its not finished or complete

look under software development

We are recent converts to EA and whilst think its great, we don't really have any interfaces with our other tools.

The first one I am looking at is Mercury's TestDirector 7.1. I have started an intergration addin to sync the use cases/requirements with the requirements feature of TestDirector, so that we can monitor test coverage etc etc. through test director

Is there anyone out there with a similar requirement? I would be happy to share my work and ideas.

Think i have worked this out. This code seems to work anyway. The actual selected object is a in-out parameter, not the return value. The return value is the selected object's type, which you can test and set the object to an appropriate typed variable, should you require.

Someone can correct me if i am wrong.

Public Sub Addin_MenuClick(Repository As EA.Repository, ByVal MenuName As String, ByVal ItemName As String)

   Dim selectedObject As Object
   Dim selectedObjectType As EA.ObjectType
   If (ItemName = COMP_DETAILS_COMMAND) Then
       selectedObjectType = Repository.GetTreeSelectedItem(selectedObject)
       MsgBox selectedObject.Name

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Information on Addin's

I am interested in doing some customisation on EA. Tried the Automation interface, but it always seems to start a new editor. Doesn't seem to register in the running object table.

Would an addin, let me tap into the current session and if so, where is the docs for it?
