You might look at using EA Lite, although it is read-only it does support Discussion and Team review entries from peers - see:

General Board / Re: Table headers in document fragments
« on: October 06, 2016, 02:14:04 pm »
A template fragment placed in the Element section is called separately for each Element - hence it creates a table Header for each element. So the Template Fragment is best called on a higher level - the Package section. This will provide a consistent table format for all elements in that package (having different table formats would not make sense).

A note for the first post - if you are using the Template selector - this will not operate as the template selector is based on Element type and is operative on each element - not in the package section.

There are number of resources on the Community site covering Database modeling and MDA transforms.
Data modeling
For Many to Many UML to DBMS table transform see page 10-11 of the Data modeling paper.

See the series of community site posts form Michael Blaha on:

The Database Builder does support synchronizing the DBMS structure with change scripts. I suggest you have a look at the example in the whitepaper and webinar covering the Database Builder:

With the Jet 4.0 you do need to convert the Jet 3.5 .eap to Jet 4.0. For more details on this see the notes on:
& Download the Jet 4.0 base from:

For this type of scenario where it is Element properties not a Package property that is setting what is to be excluded, you are best using the: Document Options dialog | Document Options Tab | Filter > Except Where Query Excludes Package.

With the simulation it was not intended to call external EA Scripts. A better solution for this is to call an Operation in the parent Class and place any code in Operations Behavior tab - F9 | Operations | Behavior.

General Board / Re: EA Slow Performance on AWS RDS
« on: July 19, 2016, 11:55:12 am »
If you are using an MySQL ODBC connection on EA to the MySQL repository then this is not connecting via the Cloud service. If it is via the the Cloud then you will be doing a Cloud connection.
We do suggest you push for the Cloud to be used.
There is a webinar on connecting AWS with the Cloud service on:
If you send though a request to the support email we can send you a document covering this in more detail.
I also suggest you find out the IP address of the AWS RDS and try doing a ping/tracert to check the general response rate. Note AWS does not have set ICPM on - so the administrator needs to set this on.
