I have to draw some EA diagrams using only the .eap file without an installed EA on the server. So i am opening it as MDB-File via ODBC.
I have problems to find out where to place the connectors end point.

I have searched several topics in this forum. I know there is the attribute t_diagramlinks.Geometry (with edge={1,2,3,4})  and the Attribute [t_connector].Start_Edge and the attribute [t_connector].End_Edge , which are attributes that determine the edge to which the line is connected.

The table [t_diagramlinks] with the attribute "Geometry" is diagram-dependent.
The table [t_connector] with the attributes [t_connector].Start_Edge and the attribute [t_connector].End_Edge is not diagram-dependent --> there could be connections that haven't been drawn on a diagram.

I know that the SX, SY, EX, EY of t_diagramlinks are coordinates relative to the origin of each node that is drawn on a diagram - however i have problem to place the endpoints on the diagram like it has been drawn in the Enterprise Architect - the end of the connector often is somewhere in the middle of the end node.

  • I am using in  t_diagramlinks.Geometry the csv-Value EDGE - but where do i find this for the end node?
  • For which purpose are the attributes Start_Edge an End_Edge in the table "t_connector" when it is not diagram-dependend?

Current Situation:
"My Interpretation" is what my web app currently draws (this is a screenshot).

Target Situation:
"EA Interpretation" is what i would like to see in my web app --> I need the same picture like the EA.

EX / EY sometimes is zero and isn't painting the end line to the edge. Here EDGE is 4 what means it starts on the left side.

How do i find out where to place the end point?


I just have installed Enterprise Architect 13.5 on a new 64 Bit machine and tried to register an older self-made EA Plugin.

The problem is, that it is not appearing in EA 13.5 64-Bit.

I have done the following:

1.) Copied all files to C:\Users\Public\EAAddins\MyAddIn
2.) Created a new registry key entry under HKCU\Software\Sparx Systems\EAAddins, with the appropriate value:
EADOORSLinkSync: EADOORSLinkSync.EADOORSLinkSyncAddinClass
3.) I went to the directory with an Command Prompt as Admistrator and registred it with
C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0\RegAsm.exe "C\Program Files\MyCompany\EAAddin\EAAddin.dll" /codebase

The problem is, that it isn't appearing in EA. Is this because of 64-Bit? Have i exchange EAFramework.dll or like this?

This is my directory listing:

Hello Community!

I have the Object-Name/Object-Alias for an exported HTML-Site/EA-Object and want to get the link like:


out of the database by name.

What I need is a function like this, that gets from the SQL-EAP-File (MDB) the link.

Code: [Select]
url getLinkForSiteAlias(string sitealias) {... return sitealias}


url getLinkForSiteName(string sitename) {... return sitename;}

Is it somehow possible to get the generated filepath from the SQL?
