General Board / Re: Globally Removing Author From Model
« on: May 19, 2018, 08:28:30 am »
Haven't seen anything in the User Interface that can do that however if you open the database with a DB tool you can search and replace the author column in t_object and t_diagram tables. For example with eap or eapx files open in MS Access.

If you don't have access to any DB tools then another way would be to run a jscript to go through the tree of objects to remove the author.

Yes every Technology in the mange window is enabled (SysML 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.4)
NOOOooo!!!  :o :o
You'll confuse the hell out of EA that way. You'll get a mix of all different version of SysML.
You should only enable the technologies you are actually using (and certainly never enable multiple versions of the same language at the same time).

I couldn't agree more. It violates that basic principle of KISS. Keep It Simple St....

General Board / Re: Sparx EA V14 B 1419 Installation issue

Often people are quick to complain and slow to praise.

So I have just got to say Sparx Systems has always been great at providing support. They usually get back to me within 24 hours and often provide workarounds or acknowledge a bug and fix it in a short period of time.

Sparx are much better than some other vendors I could mention who have similar types of tools. To put that in perspective I've used a lot of modelling tools since 1987 and started using Sparx EA back in 2005. Since 2005 from time to time I've had to use other tools due to various circumstances and learnt of their shortcomings which bring me back to using EA again.

In addition the community here on the forum has been superb over those years and I've not found another more engaged group of users.

Keep up the good work Sparx and those who contribute on the forum - its so refreshing to deal with such good bunch of people.

Yes its definitely windows defender's ransomware protection as when I disable the controlled folder access it worked and installed properly.

The Edition of Windows was Home - I try all the beta's and new releases on my home machine first.

Folders that are protected are windows system folders and the following C:\ Users\User\Documents, C:\ Users\User\Pictures, C:\ Users\User\Videos, C:\ Users\User\Music, C:\ Users\User\Desktop and C:\ Users\User\Favourites

Yes had an email from Sparx support earlier today so followed their instructions and ran the log during install and sent it through.

"Find in all diagrams" has not ben removed has it?
Yes it has been removed. Try right clicking in the browser on the element and its not there anymore.

I just did, and I found it at Properties | Find in all Diagram (Ctrl-U

Uh! your right they've moved it. Well done finding that. Pity its not put in an intuitive place.
I'll shut up now and remove that earlier post.

Yes it has been removed. Try right clicking in the browser on the element and its not there anymore.
However if you right click on an element in a diagram the function is still there so you are kind of right.

Managed to spend some time investigating this issue this afternoon.

Solution is to turn off controlled folder access in windows 10. I guess when I updated this was enable and prevents software being installed. Although it still let me install stuff from the app store.

For instructions to switch off controlled folder access go to this link

General Board / Sparx EA V14 B 1419 Installation issue
« on: May 11, 2018, 12:58:36 pm »
Having a problem installing Sparx EA V14 Build 1419 It goes through install script then stops with error about creating a temporary file to complete installation.

Just upgraded to the latest windows recently so not sure if its that or something else. Windows 10 Version 1803 Build 17134.48
Anyone else have similar problem?

Tried disabling virus protection as I also saw a notification saying "Unauthorised changes blocked" Controlled access folder blocked: C:Windows\...\svchost.exe from making changes to memory. However that didn't prevent the problem reoccurring when trying to install again.

The order of root nodes is now

One
Three
Two

Ah when I tried it I used "Root Node 1", "Root Node 2","Root Node 3", etc so that might explain why I didn't see the bug.

Just looks like UML is that a con?

I'm with Peter in that I'd like to see that feature come back as its so much more convenient than trying to remember to press F2. If I want to be forced to remember shortcut keys I'd still be using Vi or Emacs.
At least it's consistent.  Editing of the name on a diagram - having selected the name field - with a double-click has also gone.  You need to use F[F2] to get at the name.

But I'm also finding that editing names in the Attribute dialog (where each attribute is listed) has gotten worse. It was always a bit problematic for me, but now it's quite stressful.  Double-click seems to misbehave.

Paolo
Not using V14 at work just yet so not aware of all these "new features". However just tried editing name on diagram with double click and it worked okay for me.
Similarly only tried a creating a few attributes then updating and seemed to be fine although a little different.
Using build 1418 is that the same build you have having problems with Paolo?

Haven't tried on SQL repository. Order seems ok on eap file.
I did notice that the up and down arrows seem to be disabled in the project browser though.

check out comparison of features page and search for "rule"

You'll see its not a feature of professional.

Good to see someone thinking about this prickly problem in Sparx EA. I remember having a conversation way back in 1997 with Popkin for System Architect to support such a feature - unfortunately it was too hard for them. It was the relationships between the elements that was the tricky part.  :(

I like your idea of using a GUID to link back to the original element with a tag value and in addition taking a leaf from Martin Fowlers work on temporal patterns you could add a date range of when its active. Here's the link to Martin Fowlers temporal patterns
https://martinfowler.com/eaaDev/timeNarrative.html.

I guess it would be possible to do the same thing with the connector too.
