General Board / Enterprise Architect v13 upgrade guide
« on: November 01, 2016, 10:49:16 pm »
Hi!

Is there any information / Product documentation on how to Upgrade from v12.1 to v13? Is it just a matter of running the Client installer? Is there changes to the database or the Cloud Server?

Thanks in advance,
Eamonn J. Casey

General Board / Database Engineering
« on: October 05, 2016, 07:25:27 pm »
Hi! I have a few questions about database engineering (Database Builder) in EA.

1. Is it possible to generate DDL without having a active database connection? How?

2. Can I import DDL into the Database Builder package?

3. I am having problems creating views. Is there anyone that has blogged or written any instructions on how to do this? I am thinking drag-and-drop database classes from the repository and link them together graphically. Is that possible.

Suggestions and Requests / Relationships and Traceability
« on: September 29, 2016, 10:47:03 pm »
Why is there no way to find out who created a relationship between two elements? There is now CREATEDBY and no TIMESTAMP?

Elements have ownership so it is nice to be able to go talk with them about what that element really  means. Relationships are anonyoumus so you don't know why that was created and you don't know the effect of removing it.

In a large scale distributed team working on ca 350 applications you can count on that they will make unforseen choices about relationships. How can we find who created the connector?

FEATURE REQUEST: Add author and date to relationships.

General Board / Multi-Repository Environment
« on: September 20, 2016, 11:15:11 pm »
Hi!
I was wondering if anyone has come across a site that has multiple Repossitories? We are a large organisation With approximatly 17 EA shared Repositories.
The reason for this is to fin tune Security to stop users in one business unit from having too much knowledge about the inner workerings of systems in another.
We are using a mixture of ToGAF and ArchiMate to structure the content. Centerally we got a main Repository thta contains elements and models of interest to the entire organisation. Local business units get to decide Access to their own Repositories themselves.

Is there anyone that has some advice on how to make sharing and collaboration easier without affecting local Security?

Thanks,
Eamonn J.

Thanks,

I used Attempt 1 and negated the top and bottom values and now it Works as expected.

Hi,

I got a problem when updating the size and position of DiagramObject using the API.
I have a Boundary object and that code works just fine. But then I try placing (for example an ArchiMate element). The same code will not move the element properly.

Attempt 1:
Code: [Select]
private void UpdateElementOnDiagram(
EAAPI.Diagram diagram, EAAPI.DiagramObject diagramObject,
int left, int right, int top, int bottom)
{
diagramObject.top = top;
diagramObject.left = left;
diagramObject.bottom = bottom;
diagramObject.right = right;
diagramObject.Update();
}

Attempt 2:
Code: [Select]
private void UpdateElementOnDiagram(
EAAPI.Diagram diagram, EAAPI.DiagramObject diagramObject,
int left, int right, int top, int bottom)
{
String styleString = diagramObject.Style.ToString();
String[] styleList = styleString.Split(';');

for (int nIndex = 0; nIndex < styleList.Count(); nIndex++) {
if (true == styleList[nIndex].Contains("l=")) {
styleList[nIndex] = String.Format("l={0}", left);
} else if (true == styleList[nIndex].Contains("r=")) {
styleList[nIndex] = String.Format("r={0}", right);
} else if (true == styleList[nIndex].Contains("t=")) {
styleList[nIndex] = String.Format("t={0}", top);
} else if (true == styleList[nIndex].Contains("b=")) {
styleList[nIndex] = String.Format("b={0}", left);
}
}
styleString = String.Join(";", styleList);
diagramObject.Style = styleString;

diagramObject.Update();
}

I also do the Diagram.Update()

Any ideas?

Thanks,

General Board / DDL change scripts
« on: September 06, 2016, 08:53:33 pm »
Hi,
I reverse engineered a database into a UML Class diagram. Is there any good description about how I can generate DDL change scripts when I just add or remove columns? I tried using Database Builder but the description in the documentation is not very clear. I can't get it to recognise column changes.
Anyone have or know of a better description.

Thanks,
Eamonn J.

qwerty,

The A3 MDG is enabled and works just fine. In my MDG I have extended some A3 elements and they work fine. In my Toolbox before I changed the Archimate3::ArchiMate attributes to Archimate3::ArchiMate, they worked fine.
After I changed the attribute names to A3, the elements still appear in the toolbox. But they do not have an ArchiMate icon and cannot be dragged out to the modelling area.

I have modified MDGs before, but never to upgrade the underlying metamodel. So I am probably missing a step or setting.

Hi,
The "Migrate" macro in the ArchiMate3 MDG just updates the diagrams. I have changed Our MDG metamodel to use Archimate3. But obviously I have missed something along the way.
All of my Extensions work just fine. It is the Archimate3 elements in my toolbox that doesn't work. Maybe I have to import the Archimate3 namespace into the MDG somhow.

Hi!

I have a working profile based on ArchiMate v2.1 and am trying to update to v3.0. I am using EA v12.1 and the MDG from v13. I can model With ArchiMtae v3. No problem. I went through my MDG and replaced all occurances of '2' With '3' and it look find.

Problem is that I can only model with the elements I have extended. The Archimate3 elements in the toolbox are just grey boxes.

Any suggestions?

Hi!

Anyone know where I can find information on how to Upgrade from 12.1 to 13? We are using Cloud Services and Oracle database. Is it just the Client that needs to be upgraded?

Thanks,
Eamonn J.

I downloaded the latest v13 Beat and found it in the MDG Technologies directory. You can import the ArchiMate v3 MDG that comes withe the beta into v12.1 and the migrate script is in the MDG. Gets imported into the TOOLS -> Scripts. Called "Migrate ArchiMate 2 to ArchiMate 3" funnily enough  ;D

On the subject: has anyone tried to upgrade a modified/custom MDG from a previous Version. We have extended ArchiMate 2.1 and would like to update the extension to use v3.0. Is there a recipe somewhere?

Thanks Paolo,
That worked a charm! Can't wait to run it on our main repository with thousands of diagrams!

I am sure it is the same  ;D
Thinking to extending some of the elements, adding some tags/enumerations and toolboxes.
Anything to get me started would be greaylt appreaciated.
I tried following the documentation without any joy.
