MDG Technologies - Using
The Model Driven Generation (MDG) Technologies enable you to access and use resources pertaining to a specific technology in Enterprise Architect. You have various options for bringing MDG Technologies into use with Enterprise Architect:
- Sparx Systems already provide some in the Enterprise Architect Install directory, such as Archimate, Data Flow Diagrams, Entity Relationship Diagrams, ICONIX, and Mind Mapping; you can see which technologies are available using the MDG Technologies dialog; these are available across Enterprise Architect
- You can access and activate MDG Technologies remote from Enterprise Architect, in system folders or web sites; these are available across Enterprise Architect
- Technology Developers can create new MDG Technologies and deploy them to the project team as appropriate.
You can also import Technologies into the Resources window for the current model only; however, this method is no longer recommended.
You also have the facility to turn off or disable the Enterprise Architect basic UML and Extended Toolbox pages and facilities, so that you can apply the Enterprise Architect facilities and features exclusively to one or more selected MDG Technologies.
