Using the Build and Run Panel

Enterprise Architect's 'Analyzer Scripts' are used to define the behavior of various commands, such as Build, Run and Debug, which are available in the 'Execution Analyzer'. Any number of scripts can be defined in a model and each user can set their own active script, independent of other users of the same model. The active script governs the behavior of the Execution Analyzer's commands.

The 'Build and Run' panel provides facilities for creating, editing and managing the model's 'Analyzer Scripts' and also provides direct access to Execution Analyzer commands, such as Build, Run, Test and Deploy, so you can easily build, run and test a project's source code, all from the one place.

Tools such as the Debugger, Profiler, Execution Recorder and the Testpoints Window are also available from this panel.
