Server Based Repositories
You can create a model in any edition of Enterprise Architect as a .eap file. However, if you need to develop large models with many concurrently-connected users, you might prefer to use the greater capacity and flexibility of a Data Base Management System (DBMS) and create your project on a DBMS (server-based) repository. This facility is available through the Corporate, Business and Software Engineering, Systems Engineering or Ultimate editions.
Set up a project on a DBMS repository
To set up your project on a DBMS repository, you work through these stages:
|1.||Set up your DBMS software and create a repository.|
|2.||Create the required tables in your repository, by running a script supplied on the Sparx Systems website.|
|3.||(For certain DBMS products) Set up an ODBC driver to enable connection to the repository.|
|4.||Transfer the project from the source .eap file to the DBMS repository; the source .eap file can be:|
|•||a .eap template file, to begin a new project from scratch, or|
|•||a previously-developed project .eap file, to move an existing project into the DBMS repository|
|5.||Connect to your repository.|
DBMS Products you can use
You can set up your project on a repository in:
|•||SQL Server 2000, 2005, 2008 or 2012|
|•||SQL Server Express 2005 or 2008|
|•||Adaptive Server Anywhere 8 or 9, or SQL Anywhere 10, 11 or 12|
For information on creating a project on a specific DBMS from this list, see Learn more, below.
|•||You cannot move a model from a source .eap file of an Enterprise Architect version earlier than 3.5.0 without updating it first|
|•||Before proceeding, you must have MDAC 2.6 or higher installed on your system|
|•||(Optional, but recommended) before actually transferring the project structure from the .eap file to the repository, perform a Project Data Integrity Check on the .eap file|
