Profile in resources bugging (me)
« on: March 16, 2022, 12:48:12 am »
I'm after some awkward EA behavior as usual. This time I have some stereotype which does not export its stereotyped relationships. So I created a cut down profile and tried to test that via the Resources pane. The first that made me "uaaa - EA again" is that after the import all stereotypes appeared as folder icons. Once I closed/opened EA the icons appeared (happens always and consistency check tells nothing unusual). Next I noticed that some stereotypes did not appear at all in the Resources. They were shown in the properties though. However, when setting the tick it was simply ignored and no stereotype was changed/set. Now, while writing this, I have the effect that some stereotypes are shown as icon but they do not appear in the drop down.

I'm using the latest V15. Please can anyone tell me it's just a nightmare and I'm about to awake to a bright day???

While still being in the nightmare I will instead create a dummy MDG and see how that will behave :-/

P.S. Importing the profiles via a MDG looked much more promising. Well, those Profiles in the Resources just look like another bag of bugs. Somehow I seem to remember that it was not recommended to use it. But of course they left it still to bugger silly users >:-(

In time you learn to navigate the minefield.

- Don't use that (Oracle)
- Avoid that (direct stereotypes)
- Never do that (set MDG required)

I did none of that. There are so many differnt mine fields in EA-land.

The list was not meant to be exhaustive, not anywhere close

I reported (a couple of) bugs related to the above. One will be cured soon and the other takes more research. Anyhow, the Import Profile seems to have risen to the development's attention. They confirmed it's some "lost child" and has not been maintained since about V6 (I had that somewhere that it should not be used; some supporter must have said it, probably ages ago). Anyhow, the conclusion seems to be that it will be removed in a future release (when ever that might be) since it can be fully (and correctly) be replaced by
