Navigability is something different (you'd need to foster UML 2.5 for details). It's an association and the diamond specifies where the aggregation goes (and only to one side).

Sizing by what means?

Well, explaining EA is a bit of a PITA. I held courses which worked out OK since people were sitting in front of their machines and could ask. I never felt like writing a book for teaching yourself EA.

Take a look in the ebook(s) (the 2nd from Peter is more like a tutorial you would expect while his first one is more like a compendium of more or less unrelated tips) I recommended above.

I would recommend those Sparx books only if you need something heavy to support your desk...

Also I never looked really into it. I just saw it lying around on customers desks. And, honestly, I never heard a good word about the books (like "ah, that helped me" or so).

Maybe this one: https://leanpub.com/entarch. Peter has a new book, but since I'm using EA for almost 20 years I actually haven't read either in detail...

Tricky. Can you draw an association when you drag it from the toolbox (so not using the QL)? Is it just between UC/Actor or generally?

That might have many reasons. My first guess: are you using any lock mechanism? Next: Version control.

I only use the importer occasionally. But I'm pretty sure the only thing you can do is to send a feature request since the importer is hard coded and has no configuration (I'm aware of).

Not using V14 myself. Try a ctrl-drag since that offers some options usually.

You probably have to run a project integrity check beforehand. Shame on Sparx they do not enforce that.

Another possible issue I remember is the deprecation of some methods in the API. It could affect your scripts or the document template fragments using scripts.
Deprecation? Which? I'm really curious.

From the UML 2.5 specs:

13.4.11 Trigger [Class]
13.4.11.1 Description

A Trigger specifies a specific point at which an Event occurrence may trigger an effect in a Behavior. A Trigger may be qualified by the Port on which the Event occurred.

I agree with you Paolo.
An element should have only one stereotype for both practical as conceptual reasons.

Geert
For practical reasons multiple stereotypes are just nice. I have defined <<deprecated>> and <<TBD>> stereotypes which also color elements (red and yellow).

General Board / Re: Importing requirements with past date
« on: June 12, 2019, 11:33:50 pm »
I guess the only way is by tweaking the database with a SQL (from a script). I seem to remember some option that deals with date handling. It might well be useless in this context. Good luck in searching for it in the options jungle.
