General Board / New stereotypes in the beta
« on: September 06, 2006, 01:11:08 am »
Can anyine point me to a definition of the šnew" stereotypes for methods, viz <<Implementor>>, <<Manager>>, <<Access>>, <<Helper>>, <<Event>>?

Searching the Superstructure and the EA help on these keywords is not fruitful.


General Board / A public apology
« on: August 29, 2006, 02:12:21 am »
Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Last Sunday an employee posted a series of untoward and abusive posts to these forums using my identity.  I believe I have now removed all these posts.  If any remain would you please let me know so I can action them.  

The person concerned is no longer in the employ of my company.

My sincerest apologies to all for any offense.


General Board / Target Role IsDerived ???
« on: July 25, 2006, 04:56:22 pm »
How do I mark an association Target Role as being derived?

(As in "Element has a derived composition association to itself to support the general capability for elements to own other elements.")


General Board / Static classes (C#)
« on: July 12, 2006, 11:43:59 pm »
I know that class X is going to be static.  It has no methods yet.

1.  How do I tell EA that it's a static class?
2.  How does EA "show" that it's static?


99.  How do I get over my phobia of including a class instead of its instance in a sequence diagram?

General Board / BPMN - between a rock and a hard place
« on: May 25, 2006, 05:53:16 pm »
Could you nice BMPNer's please provide me with links/references to BPMN  material at level somewhere between the specification (all 308 pages) and the mass of 2 page introductories on the web.

What I'm looking for is, I suppose, some sort of mid level tutorial and/or pattern analysis info.

For example, I'm having trouble deciding what constitutes an  atomic level activity - or how one decides to pare the steps in a process.  Say we have the goods dispatch process, I could model it as 2 activities, "Pick&Pack" + "Send", or any number of finer detail activities.  What'e the guidelines?  is there any relevant practice material available on the web.


General Board / More BPMN - changing colors etc
« on: May 18, 2006, 09:50:54 pm »
What is it that is stopping me changing the colours of BPMN elements and connectors?  I cant see anything in t_objects or t_diagramobjects that would do it?


General Board / Linked Doc oops
« on: May 16, 2006, 07:18:51 pm »
Oops, I've moved the project from one system to another  and I've now lost the linked doc template that I used here there and everywhere.  Result, all these elements have linked docs with "bad template id's" and when I (double) click on them  EA gradually crashes.

How or where do I find the linked doc info for an element?


General Board / Wots the "Output" tab for?
« on: April 21, 2005, 06:13:51 pm »
What does the Output tab ctl-shift-8 do?


General Board / Root level documentation
« on: April 09, 2006, 04:03:24 pm »
I know the project root node isn't a package but I know find that I neecd to include some "project level" documentation in a model.  Has anyone got any good ideas (short of creating a "Project" view which I dont whant to do.


General Board / Pre bug submission check
« on: April 09, 2006, 04:33:11 pm »
 >:( In 789 the project tree window doesn't seem to auto-go-away any more, which makes the "locate in current diagram" function fairly useless on a complex diagram.

Have I (or the installer) jigged an option setting somewhere? Or is it a bug?


Its even worse!  The tagged value tab now goes away automaticallty - even if its pinned.

General Board / Demo version v licensed version
« on: February 22, 2006, 01:44:51 pm »
The net-nasties have banned downloads but I have managed to get a copy of the demo version of 787.  What I want to know is, is it the full version and will it install under my license key as a licensed version?


General Board / Multiple exceptions - one handler
« on: January 24, 2006, 03:06:32 pm »
How does one add another object node to an exceptionhandler element?

We have a series of business rule engines that evaluate transaction parameters and raise an appropriate exception in cases where the tx violates a rule.  Now all these exceptions are capable of being handled by one handler i.e. "MyShootUserAndRollbackTXHandler(object sender, BRException e)".

I dont seem to be able to find a way to add additional object  nodes to the exception handler in the model.  I am trying to evaluate which BR's we can move to the browser and handle them before the tx is submitted.

General Board / Mainmenu/File/OpenSourceFile - WOT is it for
« on: January 23, 2006, 02:37:31 pm »
Mainmenu/File/OpenSourceFile  obviously opens a source code file in an EA window, but what is it good for?

Is there any goodies that can be used from this code view - like f'rinstance dragging a method signature from the codeview class tree to an existing class in the project view?


General Board / Options/Diagram "Zoom to best scale"
« on: January 10, 2006, 02:20:55 pm »

Has the alorithm for this option changed recently?  Best scale  seems to have become Select scale where info is "too small for Bruce's failing eyesight" and "ensure that the elements only occupy a max of 66% of the drawing panel".
