Has anyone checked the visio puke against the XMI schema?
(Just interested)


Without thinking/trying.

Create local as untyped object and cast it.  ?????


Me too!  :)

I had weirdness on the 769 upgrade from the zip file.  No keys, add ins dont work,  paths lost,....  went back to 768 no probs.


I am running (and installing) it over a win client for an "older" Fedora distn.  I put it down to that.  

Anyone else having 769 issues?


I thought a model (as in "isModel") was a stereotyped package that had nothing to do with the root package.  Think about a repository that has several "complete things" in it.  Each of these could/would be contained in a separate <<model>>package, maybe using separate root nodes, maybe not.  IOW, a repository root and a UML "model" need not be the same thing.  (I cannot get this para right - hope its understandable)

The advanced property isRoot is to do with inheritance, not project positioning.  As in "isRoot" does not/can not inherit from anything vv an "isLeaf" element cannot be a parent.

Why is the root package not a normal package?  Dunno.  Also, I cant see why not.


Also, since it is possible to nest a class in more than one parent what does that do to things?
Youch!  I've never tried that one.

I have no answers to your questions, I just want to add another one.

Why use inner classes?  I mean, I use them but its always been a naturally "obvious" situation. Is there some design / architecture framework for recognizing that a class should be implemented as an inner?

If you are using the EA automation model, the element insertion methods will add the ref GUID's automatically.

If you aren't ... you should be.

If you still aren't, as long as you generate a GUID that will not collide with any of the EA generated ones (insert weeks of work here) it appears to work.  (here's a tip - no guarantee though - replace the least variant part of the generated GUID with a string which identifies "you" - so far this has worked for me  :-X )


Sounds like the dreaded n-recursive parts explosion (BOM) query to me.  I do have a template for this somewhere if you can wait somewhere between 24 hours and armageddon-cometh for me to find it.


The tests are not "ordered" by EA.  The key is Object_ID, TestName, TestClass.  Thus the autocounter wont help you here.  The way I do this is via an SQL query to a word merge file, that way I can order them the way I want and include other reference material in the script.


I'm game!

WANTED: A tool that traces use case tests back to the use case's internal and external requirements.

EA Version?

750 has the single table "generate DDL" on both the context menu and the table properties "Table Detail" form.


For C# I do it exactly the way you have described - except I always manually stereotype them as <<ctor>>.


Just want to change the subject of this (I know I'll be looking for it in 3 mths time  ;) )
