General Board / Re: Questions about the deployment of CloudService
« on: April 08, 2015, 01:58:47 pm »
With Project Transfers you can use the .eap or the CLoud Service base EABASE.FDB. For a copy of the .FDB see in the Cloud services directory: C:\Program Files (x86)\Sparx Systems\Cloud Services\Service\Models.

If you are doing multiple databases you might consider installing EA on the server and doing project transfers from the EABASE.FDB to the Postgres DB's.

Q. It seems that for each EA projet, we need to create a new PostgreSQL base, a new ODBC32 datasource, right ?
A. Yes.

Q.   Can I dump this empty project and use it to create several other projects whitout any risks (of duplicate GUID for exemple) ?
A. Yes - there can be some duplication of the base, but these in general should not cause any conflict.

I suggest you contact support for a copy of the leatest installer document.

There is some example script for creating Resources (Tasks) in th Script view - Local Scripts folder. See the Script 'jScript - Repository extras'.

Rather than arguing your case through specific Case Studies maybe you can present some common benefits of Model Driven Developement from requirements that are traceable to the Class (and code), through to Testpoints defined in the model for testing the code.
There are papers covering these sorts of topics:

There are some Transform scripts available on the Community site for doing a reverse transform from DDL (Physical) to Logical and Logical to Conceptual - see:

as it provides a way to open a diagram directly from the database (as far as i've read)
The HTML generation does provide a copy of the data from the database, but not a direct link. If this is required - an alternative is to use EA Lite (free) and the Cloud service. This will provide real-time off-site read-only access to the source model (along with the ability to lodge comments via the Team-review forum).

Pierre, have a look at the MDA transforms. This includes transforms from Logical model Class to C#, DBMS specific and XSD and WSDL:
See also the paper on it's specific application to Data modeling:

There is a whitepaper and an example model on working with Workflow scripting available on:
This should cover your first three points.

Re finding help on 'diff tool' See "Load other Baselines" covered on the Baseline Difference help page:
In the Branch repository you will need to create a new baseline post the modifications. Then in the Trunk repository do a 'Baseline Merge' back from the Branch Baseline using 'Load other Baselines'.

Regarding your second paragraph - have  your tried using the "Create placeholders for missing External References during XMI 1.1/2.1 Import" - see:
This will indicate if any elements are external.

General Board / Re: Development on parallel branches with EA

The Baseline Difference and Merge feature is an equivalent 'Diff tool' in EA.
Given you can use it to Difference across copied repositories - Source and Branch (using Load Other Baselines)  - it does form the foundation for Differencing and Merging 'Branch' repositories.
Sure the Branch is in a different repository - the dfference-view allows you to view changes, but keeps these seperate until verified and merged.

Have a look at Baselines - "Load Other Baselines". You can create a copy of the Source as a Branch repository then merge packages  with updates between the repositories using "Load Other Baselines".

General Board / Re: Data model to Class Model
« on: March 04, 2014, 03:47:40 pm »
Yes as Nizam points out with the DBMS specific DDL model you are dealing with a Platform Specific Model (PSM). What you are trying to do is a PSM to PSM transform. When really the transform is PIM to PSM.

There are some transform scripts on the Community site that will reverse transform a DDL PSM to Logical Class model (PIM). You can then use the PIM model to transform to a PSM of specific code platform.


p.s. you might like to look at the data modeling wp fo more tricks:

General Board / Re: Generate DDL - 'table: Database not defined' e
« on: February 19, 2014, 02:59:24 pm »
I assume the transformed tables are now set to SQL Server?
Check that the Generate Package to DDL | Use Databse field is set to blank.
Best place to check things is in the EAxample model - run a default generation on this Database example.

General Board / Re: Sentencia INHERITS de Postgres con EA
« on: February 04, 2014, 02:59:59 pm »
Esto no es directamente compatible en el Transform script DDL - véase el último diagrama:
Sin embargo, usted puede tratar de hacer sus propias modificaciones en el DDL Transformar guión comprobando cómo se hace esto en un lenguaje orientado a transformar como C # y establecer los INHERITS esta manera. (Google Translate of below)
This is not directly supported in the DDL Transform script - see the last diagram on:
However you can try to make your own modifications to the DDL Transform script by checking how this is done in an OO language transform like C# and set the INHERITS this way.

General Board / Re: Security Setup on old Model
« on: January 31, 2014, 03:07:33 pm »
Using MS Access and it does not list a password attribute for t_secuser. One, I get an error that this is a really old database.
Regardless, it won't let me update anything since it is an old database.

The MS Access message "You can't make changes to the Database Object .." applies to changing Queries and Table structures - it does not apply to data. Just Press OK. Then  clear the entry as stated by VKN.
This works regardless of the the .eap age.
