Uml Process / Re: Requirements model vs User Stories in scrum tool
« on: July 04, 2016, 08:08:05 am »
So any insights, pointers, real life experience are more than welcome!

I think it is very simple.  User stories shape the design.  Requirements are for testing against.

Over the last decade technical projects have come to be almost wholly dominated by project managers, business analysts and change control specialists.  I came across a project the other day that had been started and stopped three times and had burnt a couple of years worth of funding without ever having anyone on it that could actually do the job of building the solution to the business problem.

This is the pain that is causing the desire for Agile - even if Agile isn't the solution to the problem.

In your situation I'd just turn things on their head.

So take from whatever you used to do in your Waterfall methodology for requirements (and use cases) only that which the testing team can test against.

For the rest of it, have an honest conversation with your Architects et al about what they just used to ignore.  There's probably quite a lot that wasn't a useful input for anyone.

BUT don't skimp on your information models.  Understanding your concept domains will help you avoid stupid conversations about things like "bounded context".

What are you Visual Style settings?  I'll change to those and see what happens.
You show me yours (which seem to work) and I'll show you mine!  ;)

Can I create instances from the packages to make this happen, or what is the proposed solution in this case?

If you drag a package onto a diagram one of the options you get is "package as a list" which is actually a chart with some SQly source.  I think this is what you want with some tweaked SQL stuff :-)

Oh and I have no problems right clicking on the ribbon and getting the minimize option.  If it's not working try right clicking on one of the tabs not one of the buttons.

General Board / Re: V13: Is context help box gone?

Try looking at the visual style dialog. There is already a checkbox there that allows traditional tooltips to be displayed.

Is its icon a deformed man or the sun over a couple of mountains?

The easy way to update a technology dynamically is to deploy it to a shared path or url.

When EA starts it will ready the technology in whatever state it is in from the specified location.

It also allows you to predefine all of your models in the MTS and then drop them into the shared location as you get them finished :-)

Because the software between your ears is allowed to control your fingers to do that.

The user is allowed to make that choice, which is different from the author of an add-in making the choice.

Do you mean tool tips?

I'm not sure why you'd allow it.  It's a pretty standard practice not to allow one piece of software from interfering with another piece of software.

If I understand what you're saying Uffe - and I've only had one coffee - that may fix some of the issues I've had with alternate issues in sample models and patterns.

I can't remember all of the bug reports I've logged over the last year to even test those.

That's an interesting question.  Given that you're using Archimate and don't have things like  instantiation or v13 new time aware modelling available you're limited in what you're going to be able to do beyond your n and n+1 being completely separate models.

Thanks for this. Now I need to learn BNF :-)

Should take less than an hour and then you can move onto EBNF.
