In the EA API and database schema, all tagged values are a string. The different types determine what editor the gui uses and how they are displayed in the gui.

I just checked the format that EA uses to save the date... And it's pretty much the worst possible case. It depends on the locale settings for the machine where the date is saved. I'm not sure that can be practically changed now.

Standard Windows functions are being used to read the dates, which is why the behavior changes when the string isn't a valid date in the current locale.

I didn't forget that.

I'd rather have the translations missing formatting and have a clear distinction between them with each one in a logical place.

I recently saw a scenario where someone was doing the same thing with constraints to keep formatting, unfortunately that's not a strategy that works. You could use scenarios as a field with formatted text. It's not my personal preference because it's just a manual thing to create a scenario of the right name/type, the metadata is separated (or not there) and it's not obvious to a reader what is happening.

Hi sailkrish,

I'm personally far from an expert at anything MacOS related.

I'd recommend contacting our support team directly using the 'Report a Bug' link at the bottom of this page.

The link provided shows the setup steps, although I'm not sure of the variation between the brew instructions on that page and the steps on our page. I'm not sure what other information our support team would require to determine why it's failing on your system.

If I had to support a model in multiple translations my starting point would be to create a stereotype extending Element for each translation.

In each one I would add tagged values for Name and Notes. Depending on requirements I would also add TranslationDate, Translator.

That would at least make it possible to manage the translations. With the way the specification manager handles memo tagged values and grouping in the tagged value window it wouldn't even be too ugly.

Sorry, I haven't been able to determine that either.

Using the Query Builder, is it possible to create searches that can use more than one tagged value?
Unfortunately, no. It can only build queries using a single record for each table used.

Adding for example the Element Name more than once will make the query not work (I guess it will create a AND in the SQL, but of course you'd expect an OR here; except when using wildcards you might want an AND).

That depends on whether you have marked both entries as required or not.

Now the question: how is it possibile to show within a diagram in which communicating pools are pasted as link, all the message flows between them (the message flows flowing from one activity of the first pool to another activity of the second pool.
we tryed it but doesn't show nothing, justh the pool only.
The obective is to use the same pool inside different diagram to design different processes and finally to show at high level all the overall messages flowing between them.
Don't. A Pool is the behavior of a Participant within a Process.

You re-use the participant by setting the participant tagged value in your pool. If you leave the name of your pool empty, EA will automatically display the name of the participant on the diagram.

The option to behave as qwerty has described is there. You'll find it under the security menu. It is not the default.

I don't think the people who can give official replies to questions like this are on the forum.

However, I can offer some insight as to how the Pro Cloud Server Express licenses expire and possibilities for renewal.

Unlike regular EA keys, the key you will receive specifies a date that it expires. From that date, the "pro" features of the cloud server will cease to operate. It will still serve as a cloud server to EA.

When you renew your EA licenses (assuming the deal is still valid) that would make you eligible to get a new license key for Pro Cloud Server Express. I don't know what the process is for this, but I suspect that it will still be a request to sales for manual handling. I'm sure if enough of you take up the offer and want renewals there will need to be some automation applied.

There was a limited OSLC interface that provided access only to requirements that is no longer available.

Other than that, it's new features, bug fixes, performance improvements.

Uml Process / Re: Class Attributes: How can I delete the {...} field?

Sorry, the reference I provided doesn't list that as the notation for that type. The notation doesn't appear to match UML 2.5. It could come from SysML, or it could be from an older version of UML. Of course, it could also be a misinterpretation of the specification like my previous post.

"undefined" is what you will get from VBScript from an uninitialized variable.

Open the diagram properties.
Go to the features page.
Uncheck 'Show Property String'

For the source of the notation, see Table 7.1 Collection types for MultiplicityElements in UML 2.5.

In my opinion, the bug is that these things can be copy and pasted to a new diagram without creating a duplicate.

If I'm generous, one fork or join being used in multiple places is confusing.  I'm more included to describe it as disastrous.

Notes, text and boundaries are just properties of the diagram, so shouldn't really be re-used either. At least re-using them doesn't have modeling implications.
