I have an interaction occurrence that references a diagram in a another package. I'd like to insert that diagram in an auto-generated document along with the interaction occurrence.  Is there a way to do that? (I've tried using embedded elements, child elements, etc to no avail).

FYI: Here's a link to the interaction occurrence definition:

Any seasoned STM_C++ users out there?

We have an extensive, three-level state machine and we've generated the code for it using the STM_C++ template. I'm surprised about the generated code in some ways. Loosely speaking, the state machine is implemented in one large loop and every time it goes around the loop it checks for transition conditions. When it enters a state it calls the onEntry() behavior as expected, then exits that and calls the Do() behavior. Once it exits the Do() behavior it goes around the loop but won't enter the Do() behavior again. That means that the the code for the Do() behavior has to sit in a tight loop if it is doing something that takes time, which then means the rest of the state machine can't execute (and check triggers, for example).

We've been working with the templates a lot to try to get the behavior we want (keep calling Do() until a state transition happens), but we're not fully successful yet.

I'd like to know what experiences others have had or if there are recommendations.

Thanks

Never mind. Class:block: seems to work.

General Board / Do template selectors support SysML blocks?
« on: March 09, 2018, 11:46:20 am »
I've tried these lines in a template selector (one at a time) and they don't seem to map a document fragment to a SysML block. Any insights?

Block:block:My Block Fragment
or
Block::My Block Fragment

Thanks

Quite strange. Though I would not really care about the difference.

q.
I care because I thought valuable information might be missing. Nothing worse than a backup that isn't complete.

Thats a significant difference. Did you try running 'compact file' option in the transferred EAP.? what is the resulting size of the model?
That was it! Compacting it reduced it to 10 MB and compacting the 12MB file also reduced it to 10MB.

Thanks, I didn't know about that feature.

When I transfer a file through the menu system (Configure/Transfer/Project Transfer - DBMS to File) the resulting .EAP file is about 56MB. When I use the script below, the .EAP file is about 12 MB. Any idea what the difference is?

Thanks

(I left out the strings that define paths. Here's the critical part of the script):

     dim eapString
   eapString = "EAConnectString:BARDA EA DB --- DBType=4;Connect=Provider=MSDASQL.1;Persist Security Info=False;Data Source=EA DB"
   
   dim repository
   dim projectInterface
'   set repository = CreateObject("EA.Repository")
   set repository = GetObject(, "EA.App").Repository

   'get project interface
   set projectInterface = repository.GetProjectInterface()

   projectInterface.ProjectTransfer eapString, TargetFilePath, LogFilePath

end sub

main

General Board / Re: SQL-based report on package info coming up empty
« on: February 10, 2018, 12:18:56 pm »
Can you provide the contents of your SQL Search definition?

select t_package.Name, t_package.Package_ID, 'Package' AS CLASSTYPE, t_package.ea_guid AS CLASSGUID from t_package where t_package.Name like '<Search Term>'

Now what I get in my document is the target package plus the parent package plus the only sibling of my target package. When I run the search as a search, only my target package is returned (as expected).

Thanks

Everything I described was to find and report on the notes for a package listed in the project browser, not in a diagram.

Thanks for replying,

General Board / SQL-based report on package info coming up empty
« on: February 01, 2018, 05:11:48 am »
EA Version 13.5.1352

1) I use an SQL search to find a package by name. I know the search works - I can right click a returned package and the "Find in browser" feature is highlighted and works.
2) I have a document template that reports the package name and notes. I can generate that document directly from a package (by right-clicking the browser) and the contents are correct in the generated report.

When I create a "Model Document" and specify the search and name from 1) above and the template from 2) and then generate the report, the report comes up empty. The package name and notes don't appear. (If I include elements and the element names, I see a correct list of element names in the report so I know the report receives the package information but no package information appears). Any ideas?

Thanks
Bruce

General Board / C++ State Machine Code Generation Example?
« on: December 19, 2017, 03:42:21 pm »
I'm trying to generate C++ code from a state machine. I don't know how to set up triggers with events and guards so that generated code will compile. Is there an example around (or really clear documentation)?

I'm using the system engineering version (13.5).

Thanks for any help

Thanks. I do have that configuration. I'll upgrade the driver.

General Board / Postgres-related crashing. ODBC Keep Alive?
« on: December 15, 2017, 09:38:55 am »
I just started using Postgres (9.03 32 bit ODBC driver) with EA (13.5.1351) on Win 10. EA seems to crash if I stop working with a model for a while. (EA crashes - I'm guessing that it has to do with lack of activity). I did not have this problem when working with the same model in an EAP file.

It's as if there's a timeout somewhere, maybe in the ODBC connection? Any thoughts or insights?

Thanks

I figured out the answer, sort of, based on SQL for a different EA query. This SQL lists all the trace relationships in the model.

SELECT t_connector.Connector_Type AS [CLASSTYPE],
    t_connector.ea_guid AS [CLASSGUID],
    t_object1.Stereotype AS [From_Type],
    t_object1.Name AS [From_Name],
    t_connector.Stereotype AS Relation,
    t_object2.Stereotype AS [To_Type],
    t_object2.Name AS [To_Name]
FROM t_object t_object1, t_object t_object2, t_connector
where t_connector.Start_Object_ID = t_object1.Object_Id
    and t_connector.End_Object_ID = t_object2.Object_Id
    and t_connector.Stereotype='trace'
    and t_object1.Stereotype is not null
    and t_object2.Stereotype is not null
Union
SELECT t_connector.Connector_Type AS [CLASSTYPE],
    t_connector.ea_guid AS [CLASSGUID],
    t_object1.Stereotype AS [From_Type],
    t_object1.Name AS [From_Name],
    t_connector.Stereotype AS Relation,
    t_object2.Object_Type AS [To_Type],
    t_object2.Name AS [To_Name]
FROM t_object t_object1, t_object t_object2, t_connector
where t_connector.Start_Object_ID = t_object1.Object_Id
    and t_connector.End_Object_ID = t_object2.Object_Id
    and t_connector.Stereotype='trace'
    and t_object1.Stereotype is not null
    and t_object2.Stereotype is null
Union
SELECT t_connector.Connector_Type AS [CLASSTYPE],
    t_connector.ea_guid AS [CLASSGUID],
    t_object1.Object_Type AS [From_Type],
    t_object1.Name AS [From_Name],
    t_connector.Stereotype AS Relation,
    t_object2.Stereotype AS [To_Type],
    t_object2.Name AS [To_Name]
FROM t_object t_object1, t_object t_object2, t_connector
where t_connector.Start_Object_ID = t_object1.Object_Id
    and t_connector.End_Object_ID = t_object2.Object_Id
    and t_connector.Stereotype='trace'
    and t_object1.Stereotype is null
    and t_object2.Stereotype is not null
Union
SELECT t_connector.Connector_Type AS [CLASSTYPE],
    t_connector.ea_guid AS [CLASSGUID],
    t_object1.Object_Type AS [From_Type],
    t_object1.Name AS [From_Name],
    t_connector.Stereotype AS Relation,
    t_object2.Object_Type AS [To_Type],
    t_object2.Name AS [To_Name]
FROM t_object t_object1, t_object t_object2, t_connector
where t_connector.Start_Object_ID = t_object1.Object_Id
    and t_connector.End_Object_ID = t_object2.Object_Id
    and t_connector.Stereotype='trace'
    and t_object1.Stereotype is null
    and t_object2.Stereotype is null

General Board / How to report trace relationships for state transitions?
« on: November 04, 2017, 03:23:48 am »
I have a state transition from State1 to State2 (Call it Transition1). I attach a trace from Transition1 to Artifact1. How do I generate a report or an SQL query that lists that trace relationship? (I know how to do it when I trace from a State element, but not from a state transition).

Thanks
Bruce
