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;
- Full Document report (similar to the RTF report generated in EA)
- Use Case report
- Requirements reports (external & internal requirements)
- Scenario report
- 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.
