Bugs and Issues / State Machine State Actions “burned in” Behavior
« on: September 29, 2016, 10:30:16 pm »
Once I entered a UML <behavior-type-label> or in EA wording added an "Operation" to a State and add a <behavior-expression> by selecting a Model Element on the Behavior Tab.

This behavior is “burned in”!
In other word to get rid of this behavior in my “Operation” I have to delete the whole Operation.

To allow defining of a <behavior-type-label> for state machine states, EA uses the "Operations" feature from Classes.

By doing so, is there any reason why I can define a return in the method signature of classes but not in the “method signature” of States?

You can look directly to the DB schema within you DB, or for eap just open that file with MS-Assess.

Further on you might look to this: (book from querty)

or e.g. to this: (to find some examples)

Yes, the Sparx Systems plans matter. And it might need some additional EA features as well, just remember e.g. the Project Transfer over cloud.

Maybe there first repository in your service (once your VAR’s are interested in), is to share the ideas in your consortium.

Hi Aaron.a,
it is hard to give you guidance on this level of information.

What I have in mind when I read your points, I would say you can do all that with EA.
If it fits to your specific and concrete details? I do not know.

Maybe you give it a try with EA and when you come to concrete points just post an issue.

1) Look to EA Reporting features. Virtual/Master/Model Documents might be interested for you
2) Either you need some kind of import/export (several features are supported) or your peers need access to the model.
3)  Of cause can be done
4) There are several analyses features available. As a most powerful analyses features, you can do SQL-queries once you understand the DB schema used by EA.

Glassboy’s comment:
If you do create Cloud Sparx as a Service, then you have scope to allow a second tranche of cooperation in building shareable models. 
is something interesting as well!

I develop lots of model content to be shared by other projects.

And at least what information the model represents, for sure could be usefull for other organizations as well.

As a very simple example, I have a considerable library of SysML ValueTypes Quantities and Units rather than just the SI base stuff.

Ok Helmut!
In General Settings of hoTools I set „Linestyles and more“ to "Disable" and deselected „Linestyle Support“, but that was not successful (or what I thought what it should do).

What solved my problem was setting “Setting default Linestyle”/”Statechart” to “no”.
So, that is ok for me, however setting “Statechart” to something else is not “default” but “force”.

Thank you KP,
Pointing me to addins helped me to catch the devil. It is the hoTools addin who changes the line style.

Maybe Helmut can response on this post.

When you have connected states with transitions and changed line style to Bezier and you add a new transition within the diagram all transitions switch back to Auto Routing.

This seems to happen for any line style changes from default (Auto Routing) to any other.

Observed in build 2015 and new V13 versions.

Here are my answers, as far as I know.

   1) No, your copy can never compromise your data on the asset server. Import is a simple copy with same guid’s. However after reimport the assets all your changes on the copy are gone.
   2) This is my process I use, which work for me as long as “used” assets are still in my asset model.
      a) Transfer SQL Repository to eap (just to have a backup)
      b) Baseline the Project related content within the project repository (all my project related stuff is under one root view)
      c) Import the relevant new package versions from asset service (located in an other view of my repository)
      d) Restore internal baseline
   3) You need some kind of generic scripts to find out what elements of this package are used outside. Such a script is useful anyway even without using assets.

Uml Process / Re: Actors in a BDD

Regarding your use case to block connection question, yes I relate a block in the same way as an actor.
For swim lane stuff see response from qwerty.

Why do you need to make separate swim lanes?

As I have said, you do not need to duplicate actors.

As long as the language capability of an UML/SysML actor is sufficient for you, use the UML/SysML actor.
If you need more language capabilities to describe the “concrete actor”  you can use e.g. a Block or a Class to do that, instead of using an UML/SysML actor.
If you want to have it duplicate for some reasons you can do that as well, but in this case I would put those in a relation to state the both are the same.

Yes SysML allows you to put Actors on a BDD.

What to use when, depends on what you want to achieve or is even sometimes a matter of taste.

If I want to show that e.g. a person is acting from outside with a system I typically use an actor. If e.g. the person is part of the system, I typical use a block to represent the person.

If you want to have software, hardware and mechanical stuff in you model SysML could also be a good choice because modeling these things together is what SysML is all about.

AFAIK this is not possible. What I do in those cases is adding the link in the Properties dialog under Related/Files.
However to open that link it is not a “one-click”.
