General Usage

The Local Paths dialog enables you to define:

  • Path - the local directory in the file system (for example, d:\java\source)
  • ID - the shared ID that is substituted for the Local Path (for example, JAVA_SRC)
  • Type - the language type (for example, Java)

And also:

  • Apply Path - select a path and click on this button to update any existing paths in the model (with full path names) to the shared relative path name (for example:
    d:\java\source\main.java might become %JAVA_SRC%\main.java)
  • Expand Path - the opposite of Apply Path; this enables you to remove a relative path and substitute the full path name

Using the two options you can update and change existing paths



  • You can also set up a hyperlink on a diagram to access the Local Paths dialog, to switch, update or expand your current Local Path
