General Board / Re: Model Discussion
« on: Today at 06:12:06 am »
I just live with the fact that EA is bloated with marketing functions which obviously are there to give sales personell a me-too argument. I just don't use them. Too bad Sparx is giving us a hard time to get rid of them. Like all those MDGs which come unwanted and just end in people using MDGs they should not. Use tools that were build for use cases you need. In this discussion case I just came up with using GUIDs to reference EA elements (of any type) to deal with outside EA and locate them back later.

You get different life lines for each port (which of course has inherted the operations of the ifaces it realizes). This way you can show more details like which port of a component handles which message.

If you open EA.exe with Notepad++ you can find the QL CSV definition in its guts. It's HUGE (no, even more....). I don't know which poor guy has been punished with setting this up and maintaining it. But finding and "rule" guiding that table: you will commit suicide when facing that.

General Board / Re: reverse engineering for self-defined language

If you wrote the compiler yourself, you're best of to dump the syntax tree as sort of XMI you can read with a script to create a class structure. Or you modify your compiler and create a 2nd version to cross-compile to EA (creating the class structure inside EA).

Creating XMI directly for EA-import would likely be a PITA.

General Board / Re: Can a component diagram show components AND classes?
« on: January 22, 2020, 04:20:44 am »
Just: yes. You can show (almost) anything in any diagram. OMG tells that explicitely somewhere in the specs. There are only few limitations (from EA?) since SDs will not accept some elements and/or make them life lines.

A good thing needs some time and a better thing need more time. ;)

Ian, not you too :o


I still choose to believe that bugs reports like this are being taken seriously by Sparx.
And my recent experience proves that to me.

You either are just more lucky than me. Or the Sparx-God(s) love(s) you more than me (that for sure, anyhow).

2. t_connector.sourceCard / destCard
3. ID is only local in your database. A fast integer as primary index. GUIDs are preserved over model transfers. Slower search but valid in any model.

Why not lookup t_diagramobjects whether or not your note is already present?

Without checking the details: there have been a couple of "duplicate events" for V15 on spot here. Just queue at the end (my guess).

General Board / Re: Shape script - Println types

You can't. See https://sparxsystems.com/enterprise_architect_user_guide/13.5/modeling_tools/displaying_element_properties.html

You could do it with an add-in. I would not recommend it. Why not use the generic shape?

Bugs and Issues / Re: Set Visible Relations dialog difficult
« on: January 17, 2020, 07:40:09 pm »
I recently checked my old bug tracker (started 2010). The first one is poked still is not fixed. I did not look into any other of them (too frustrating likely). I guess there are more of them from times before I started that bug tracker. (I wrote a rant for that MDG thread but then dumped it before sending.)

t_diagram.showforeign is the other tickmark.

General Board / Re: Conditional relationship
« on: January 14, 2020, 12:44:40 am »
Yes. Right-click one of the connectors. Attach Note or Constraint. Choose Constraint from the radio button and also select the 2nd connector (both need to be visible on the diagram). Enter "XOR" or some more lenghty text to describe the situation and you're done.

General Board / Re: Class and its realised Interface - SQL query
« on: January 11, 2020, 07:47:51 am »
Yes, you need the t_connector table WHERE connector_type = "Realisation" and JOIN t_object AS o1 WHERE o1.object_id = Start_Object_ID (or if your EAP gets hickups on JOIN just a plain WHERE.
