Please note : This help page is not for the latest version of Enterprise Architect. The latest help can be found here.
As Enterprise Architect uses a dynamic, script driven Simulation mechanism there is no need to generate code or compile your model before running a simulation. It is even possible to update simulation variables in real time using the Simulation console window. This is useful for testing alternate branches and conditions 'on the fly', either at a set Simulation break point, or when the Simulation reaches a point of stability (for example, when the Simulation is 'blocked').
