shared search definitions (2016)
« on: June 22, 2016, 02:04:13 pm »
bumping a question from 2010 to see if anything has changed.

Quote
I have made a search definition, and I want to share it amongst my collegues. What is the way to do this?
Original post

The option shared from the original post included:
  • Manually via import/export
  • Define in MDG Technology

Hoping these is a better way when using a DBMS.

Hi,

you may have a look on the free and open source EA Addin hoTools.

You find it in the EA Community http://community.sparxsystems.com/community-resources/977-hotools-sql-with-tabbed-editing-macros-templates and on GitHub.

The main features related to SQL are:
  • SQL in file system
  • A lot of Macros to access EA elements
  • A lot of Templates to make an easy start
  • Results in EA Model Search
  • Tabbed Editing

You can now import MDG's into a EA Model, which for me is now the way to share SQL Searches.

We've even made some MDG's containing only a searches because they get their own category on the model search.
And createing MDG's is now a simple point and click wizard (as opposed to manually editing xml files)

Thank you both for the response. 

I'll look at the MDG based solution. 

Thank you
