Scriptlets look interesting. https://sparxsystems.in/scriptlets-in-enterprise-architect-16-a-step-beyond-static-view/

Have any users used them?  What are your thoughts on their utility?

Are they only available for JavaScript or can other scripting languages be used?

TIA,
Paolo

Wonder how Scriptlets will behave in WebEA?

WE've had a number of instances in the pat where users request for linked Tagged Values that are dynamically updated based on other tags, and we've also had requests to validate models based on modelled tags. We have been using normal PB Scripts or Diagram Scripts to achieve this ,  we are now working on converting some of this logic to Scriptlets.

As these are executed on 'Reload' of the diagram, it makes it incredibly efficient to maintain (previously we were at the EA Admins' mercy to run the script to recompute the values)

We are working on the config changes for our clients and must be rolled out to Production in a few weeks.

AFAIK, this is a modellers' utility, if the modeler reloads the diagram, the changes must be propagated automatically to WebEA or Prolaborate.

Whilst I haven't tested it yet, Changing a tagged value from Prolaborate or WebEA and saving it must be similar to changing a name of an element, the diagram cache will be reloaded when the diagram is reloaded in EA the next time ( I will try to confirm this soon )

Yes, only for JavaScript.

WebEA doesn't have the EA API, so there's no way they could actually work there.
