Bugs and Issues / HTML Generation not Loading MS Edge
« on: July 15, 2020, 09:38:32 pm »
Hi All

My local workstation has upgraded MS Edge to Version 83.0.478.64 (Official build) (64-bit)

Now and HTML generated from EA fails to load in a similar way to Chrome (without the --allow-file-access-from-files switch)

Anyone else noticed this?

Cheers

Phil

ArchiMate_ApplicationComponent has UML::Component as its meta-class

The others Device, Node and System software all have UML::Class as the meta-class

I would guess that the ArchiMate_Serving relationship is based upon an UML::Association meta class

Should be fairly straightfoward to create an MDG based on UML to model the relationships in exactly a form you want

All the best

You could consider ArchiMate 3.1 where an Application Component can be related to a Technology Node, or a System Software or a Technology Device via a Serving relationship.

Caveat

Some versions of EA may not allow these connectors, but in EA version 15.2 it certainly works.

Uml Process / Re: BPMN - Data Objects associated with a Sequence Flow

I haven't reported it yet, since a new build came out yesterday and have not had chance to test on this build, so please go ahead and report this quicklink issue.

Thanks Phil

I just tried in EA version 15.2 Beta and it worked, well sort of.

The quicklinker displayed the correct link (Association) on the menu, but failed to create the link (Invalid combination of source and target), but when using an Association from the toolbox, I achieved the desired result

Hmm maybe

But tagged values on connectors are not actually TaggedValue elements they are ConnectorTags and held in a different table to that for element tagged values, same for attribute Tagged values and method Tagged values.

Don't event ask about Role Tags as they are entirely different even to the method that value and notes are stored!

So what's happening I guess is that the event EA_AllowTagUpdate is only being triggered when the table t_objectproperties (where element tagged values ate held) is about to be updated, and its not being triggered when the other tables are being updated.

But as Geert suggests submit a bug report and you never know, its worth a try

Thanks bug report duly sent

Bugs and Issues / Duplicate View Specifications in MDG version 15.1
« on: April 28, 2020, 06:43:22 pm »
Hi All

Has anyone else noticed that if you define one or more View Specifications in an MDG and create a new diagram in EA v 15.1,the diagrams defined in the View Specification are listed twice?

The same MDG works fine in version 15.

Bug or quirk?

All the best

Yes indeed, toolbox pages are organised by Z-Order

On you MDG Toolbox diagram , change the Z-Order of each toolbox page, the toolbox at the top of the diagram toolbox, has the highest Z-Order number (if my memory is correct), now is that the Front or the Back?  I think it's the Back, but you may have to experiment a little

All the best

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Re: UPDM Help
« on: March 19, 2020, 03:47:40 am »
In addition to the above in my first post the following also appears to be missing:

Glossary
Example Model

In the UPDM user guide it does state that the glossary needs to be imported into each model repository

You import the Glossary definitions into each model individually. To do this, select the 'Publish > Technologies > Import > Other Tools/Formats' ribbon option.

This leads to a dialog from where to navigate to an xml file (presumably containing the glossary entries), but where is this file?
Is this file installed when the MDG is installed (the user guide implies this, since it says a glossary is available), but again where is this file?

Any help would be most appreciated since II have to demo UPDM to client in a week's time and it would be great to demonstrate the complete features as stated in the user guide and not just the repository structure created by the model wizard.

These issues appear to also be in EA version 14.1, EA versions 15 and EA version 15.1

All the best

Phil

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / UPDM Help
« on: March 18, 2020, 09:36:24 pm »
Hi All

I have been asked to take a look at the UPDM MDG for EA and I am currently using an Ultimate edition of EA version 15.1

I have been looking at the reference guide https://sparxsystems.com/resources/user-guides/15.1/model-domains/architecture-frameworks.pdf and have downloaded the UPDM MDG from the Sparx website and this has been installed,

I can create a model using the wizard and certainly get the MoDAF framework from the wizard, however, the document referenced above (dated January 2020) states on page 97 that there is a UPDM Extensions Menu, which I do not see at all and hence cannot access this functionality.

I do see other technologies such as ArcGIS, ArchiMate, ODM etc and all my MDGS (including UPDM) are checked.

Am I missing something? Why is the UPDM Extensions menu missing?

Thanks and all the best

Phil

Thanks for the response, that confirms what I suspected.

Thanks for your suggestion for the reverse engineering I'll give that a go

General Board / Re: Schema Composer and JSON

Hi All

I have worked out how to generate JSON, obvious really once you know where to look! (Create a CIM Schema and select JSON upon Generate)

But still have not found JSON import, guess that's not possible at the moment

All the best

General Board / Schema Composer and JSON
« on: March 16, 2020, 09:11:13 pm »
Hi All

This maybe a basic question, but on Page 7 of the resource document found here

https://www.sparxsystems.com/resources/user-guides/15.1/model-domains/schema-models.pdf

The wording states that the Schema Composer can help you build JSON definitions, but as far as I can tell nowhere in the document states how you can define JSON or generate a JSON definition file.

So how do you generate a JSON definition using the Schema Composer? Is it a built in functionality or is scripting / add-in required?

All help as usual very much appreciated.

The obvious follow-up would be, is it possible to import a JSON file into EA directly (using schema composer?) or is a script / add-in required.

I am using the latest (28 Feb 2020) build of EA 15.1

Thanks and all the best

Phil
