Bugs and Issues / Re: Cross references missing
« on: September 01, 2017, 12:49:24 am »
Hi,

as far as I know there are issues with lost references when using controlled packages. Mostly they are related to embedded elements. If you search the forum you should find some threads.

I usually select the options in Package Control Options:
- For all packages, create placeholders for external references.

I haven't used Controlled Packages in the last few years. Therefore the behavior may have changed.

If the issue still exists after changing the options consider filing an official bug report.

Kind regards,

Helmut

Bugs and Issues / Re: SysML Item Flow with item property
« on: August 28, 2017, 11:32:23 pm »
Hi,

thanks for your explanation. I've tried it and it works:
- Create one or more Links of type <<ItemFlow>> (from SysML Relationships)
- Don't add conveyed items to <<ItemFlow>>
- For every Link <<ItemFlow>> fill out the TaggedValue "ItemProperty" with one property
- Add a connector
- Right Click on the connector, advanced, InformationFlow realized
- Add the needed InformationFlows (every contains one property)
- And EA shows the connector according to SysML specification (with the (item)properties)

No easy task.

Kind regards,

Helmut

General Board / Re: ModelView alternative?
« on: August 28, 2017, 06:39:08 pm »
Hi,

I think you are right by suggesting that the ModelViews need some improvements. Consider making a feature request.

With SQL (Select *) you can get almost every information out of the EA Model. If you have a database with a reasonable database server performance shouldn't be an issue.  Yes, SQL alone is sometimes a bit annoying. But in the end, most things work.

A workaround is to fill an own table in the background and interpreting it by a simple SQL select.

Kind regards,

Helmut

Hi,

yes.

In the Open Source Navigator https://bellekens.com/ea-navigator/ from Geert Belleken are classes which make it easy to implement invoking Scripts in your Addin.

My Open Source hoTools uses Geerts Script classes to call Scripts from within C# Add-In.


Kind regards,

Hi Mark,

I just tried <<InterfaceBlock>> with FlowProperties on a Port with EA 13.5.

The ports show the direction of the FlowPoperties.

Kind regards,

Bugs and Issues / Re: Limitations in copy and paste
« on: July 31, 2017, 05:22:37 am »
Hi Jose,

there is always something to optimize or make more consistent. So it's a good idea to file a feature request for an improved copy/paste. SPARX will decide on their own priorities.

Yes, it would be nice. I don't think that this feature will boost productivity a lot. In my point of view, it's a building block to a slightly better tool. I admit such appraisals are personal and will often change with experiences and the work at hand.

Best regards,

Helmut

Bugs and Issues / Re: EA response is super slow in V13!?
« on: July 25, 2017, 11:24:25 pm »
Hello Peter,

looks peculiar!

May be there is something damaged inside *.eap. I would try:
- Consistency check + repair
- Project transfer to an empty *.eap file
- Contact SPARX

Kind regards,

Helmut

Hi,

since release 13 EA supports so called Hypbrid Scripting (see: http://www.sparxsystems.com/resources/user-guides/automation/hybrid-scripting.pdf).

The benefit is: You can generate, build, deploy and run by EA your little Java Program which can access a Repository. Maybe it's of use.

Regards,

Helmut

Hi Peter,

the projects I worked for:
- EA with *.eap and Version Control ==> lot of problems, I have almost never experienced some benefits from Version Control
- EA with Database, no Version Control ==> runs smoothly

Today I look carefully into the processes to evaluate if Version Control is really needed and not a rarely needed functionality.

In most cases, baselines or simply write/export (not read) to Version Control will do the job. No locking, just writing. An Integrator who was also responsible for integrating the model told me that there are seldom merge conflicts and if they have solved them fast.

Processes like SPICE are talking a lot of the benefits of Version Control. It's a thing we have to use without thinking about. In praxis, you should look into the details and ask:
- What are the real benefits?
- What are the issues?
- Can I mitigate the issues?

Kind regards,

Helmut

Hi q,

problem solved. As you suggested I simply forgot to define the Search with New Search.

Best regards,

Helmut

42
Thanks, I got it. I have to configure the Search. Now I see it.

Best regards,

Helmut

Hi,

I thought I could see the Search in the AddIn category after CTRL+F.

Have I missed something? Is there something to do to see the Search after CTRL+F?

Best regards,

Helmut

Hi q,

thanks a lot for your engagement.

I've tried it with two Add_Ins, EA 13.5 and 12, with and without DEBUG mode. I can't see the Add-In Searches in the Search Window. In the dll I can see the public function:
- public object AddInSearchSample(EA.Repository repository, string searchText, out string xmlResults)

The signature is according to the links which make sense.

The functionality behind the Add-In Search works fine. I only can't run it manually because it doesn't show up.

Kind regards,

Helmut

Hello,

I am trying to develop an Add-In Search with C# according to http://sparxsystems.com/enterprise_architect_user_guide/13.5/automation/add-in_search.html.

The Add-In works correctly but EA doesn't recognize the Add-In Search. I would expect to see the Search in 'Find in Project' category Addin. Nothing shows up.

I tried the following signatures and checked it in the DLL with ildasm.exe. The methods are public methods in the Add-In Class.

Signatures:
- public string AddInSearchSample2(EA.Repository repository, string searchText, out string xmlResults)
- public string AddInSearchSample2(EA.Repository repository, string searchText, ref string xmlResults)
- public object AddInSearchSample2(EA.Repository repository, string searchText, out string xmlResults)
- public object AddInSearchSample2(EA.Repository repository, string searchText, ref string xmlResults)


Has someone experiences, examples or ideas?

Thanks,

Helmut
