Share a Project
The easiest way to share a project amongst a work group of developers and analysts is to place the project file on a shared network drive, to which people connect from their workstations.
Individual developers and analysts can then open and work on the project concurrently.
Enterprise Architect accepts a number of concurrent connections without issue; however:
|•||There can be occasional 'lock-outs' when one user tries to access or update something another user is in the process of modifying|
|•||Changes to the Project Browser (and other project views) are not automatically updated; to compensate for this, users must occasionally reload their project to see changes made by other users|
|•||If two or more people work on the same diagram concurrently, unexpected results can occur; it is best to allow only one analyst to work on a diagram at a time|
|•||(.EAP files only) If a user's machine crashes, the network suffers an outage or a machine is turned off unexpectedly, the project file might require repair to compensate for the sudden inconsistency; a repair facility is provided (Tools | Data Management | Manage .EAP File | Repair .EAP File) to carry out this task|
