Questions & Answers


Enterprise Architect 12.1 Beta. The functionality that was demonstrated, however, is already supported in the current Enterprise Architect 12.0 release.

Yes. You can download it from this page.

ArcCatalog is a separate product from Enterprise Architect and is provided by Esri as part of its ArcGIS platform. To use the XML Workspace Schema import feature in ArcCatalog, you need an ArcGIS Desktop Advanced license. For more information on ArcGIS, see Esri's ArcGIS web page.

If you want the image to be used with every instance of that stereotype, you can associate a metafile (an image in *.wmf or *.emf format) with the stereotype using the UML Types dialog. For details, see the Help Topics Custom Stereotypes and Stereotypes with Alternative Images.

Alternatively if you want to use an image for an element only on select diagram, you could use Enterprise Architect's Image Library. For more information, see the Help Topic Using the Image Manager. You can import an existing library of clip art images provided by Sparx Systems. For instructions, see our image library web page.

Geodatabase Modeling

Changing the stereotype of the abstract class does not remove or impact existing relationship classes between the concrete classes.

This is still planned for a future release.

Searching and Navigating Models

You can use Enterprise Architect's Model Search capability. In a previous webinar, we provided some custom Model Searches that were specific to ArcGIS models. One of these, named 'Find Domain References', allows you to search on a Domain name and list all elements in the model that use that Domain. You can download the custom queries and find instructions on how to use them from our 2014 ArcGIS webinar page.
