Automation Interface Examples: Reporting


The Automation Interface Example EA Report is used to provide a practical examples of creating reports using the Automation Interface. It uses Visual Basic 6.0 to perform calls to the Automation Interface to retrieve data from an EA repository.

The Add-In provides the following reports;

    1. Full Document report (similar to the RTF report generated in EA)
    2. Use Case report
    3. Requirements reports (external & internal requirements)
    4. Scenario report
    5. Maintenance, testing and system reports


For users simply interested in using the EA Report Add-In in its current form - a downloadable setup file is available under Download. See Examples for a set of reports produced by the Add-In.

A reasonable knowledge of Visual Basic is assumed if modifications are to be made to the example. The EA Report Add-In is intended to provide a starting point for users to configure their own documentation layouts.
