UPDM Add-In and Technology
Enterprise Architect makes use of MDG Technologies to extend its capabilities in specific domains. The MDG Technology for UPDM is automatically loaded by the UPDM Add-In if the Add-in is enabled.
As well as enabling the Add-In, you must enable the MDG Technology. This happens automatically the first time you run Enterprise Architect after installing the UPDM Add-In, but thereafter you can enable and disable the MDG Technology as required, and its state is persisted to the next time you run Enterprise Architect.
Configure > Technology > Manage
To enable or disable the MDG Technology on the 'MDG Technologies' dialog, click on the 'Enabled' checkbox against the 'UPDM 2.0' entry and click on the . You must restart Enterprise Architect for changes to take effect.
You might also want to select the UPDM Technology and click on the ; this then flags the entry with an asterisk (*). Making a Technology active opens all Toolbox pages that have been defined as Common. The MDG Technology for UPDM has a long, common Toolbox page named 'All UPDM Stereotypes', which lists the UPDM stereotypes in alphabetical order; this can be very useful for finding stereotypes if you don't know which View they are commonly used in.
Extend > Configure > Manage Add-Ins
The 'Manage Add-Ins' dialog lists the currently installed Add-Ins. If the UPDM 2.0 Add-In 'Status' is set to 'Disabled', select the 'Load on Startup' checkbox and restart Enterprise Architect.
To display the UPDM Technology menu, select the 'Extend > Add-Ins > UPDM 2.0' ribbon option. The menu options display underneath. The menu and the options it offers are described in the UPDM Extensions Menu topic.
