When showing a class in a diagram its attibutes can be made visible. When using a stereotype created by a shape script one can make it show single featuers like the name of the class or the name of the stereotype. I think there should be a way of showing the attibutes also when using a stereotype.
I have sent this as request to sparx.

General Board / Creating DB sequences with EA?
« on: November 24, 2008, 06:48:22 pm »

with EA I can create Database tables (Oracle) and generate the DDL.

I tried to create / generate a sequence by creating a class (table) in EA and marking the option 'Generate Sequences' in the 'Generate DDL' window. The effect was the sql script which created a table not a sequence.

Do I really have the possibiliby to generate a seaquence with EA? If yes how is the way?


General Board / Re - define Database datatypes
« on: October 14, 2008, 05:27:54 pm »

I work with an Oracle Database and EA. Many (perhaps all) Oracle - Datataypes are defined in EA.
Do I have the possibility of re - defining these datatypes?
E.g. if I want to have for NUMBER a default of 9,0 instead of the predefined 8,2.

Does anybody know a way?

(And besides: Is there a possibility to change the tab behaviour? It would be nice to select the datatype -> tab to precision, then scale. Instead precision is skipped...)


General Board / import Database DDL into model
« on: October 10, 2008, 12:03:19 am »

as well as I can create ddl from a table in my model I would like to create a table from a database ddl into my model (like reverse engineering from source code).
Unfortunatly my ODBC - connectivity does not work so that I cannot directly import from the database.

Do I have the possibility of importing a ddl or can I only import directly from database?


General Board / text position in actions
« on: March 17, 2008, 09:12:06 pm »

I think this is quite a simple question:

Is it possible to place the description (name) of the action instead of the center position into the top position (in order to place other elements into the action)?

Or are actions in contrast to activities simply not meant to have elements in them?


General Board / Generate Namespaces
« on: March 05, 2008, 08:57:28 pm »

generate code and reverse engineer is a fine thing in EA.

But one thing probably I could not yet manage and that is generating the namespace of a class.

If I forward engineer a whole package it is no problem because the namespaces are simply ignored.
But if I want to generate a single class, it would not be bad to have the namespace generated - especially when generating code means that beside my class (in C# - Code) there is generated a second one without namespace.

In EA my classes are in packages equivalent to my namespace structure.
In Tools / Options / Source code engineering / C# the option 'Generate name spaces' is true.

What else can I do to make EA generate my namespaces?



General Board / change diagram properties in a whole project
« on: February 07, 2008, 12:40:33 am »

is it possible to change the properties of all diagrams in a project?
(E.g. if suddenly I see that my name is wrongly written?)

General Board / generate sequence diagrams possible?
« on: February 05, 2008, 07:27:09 am »

I am not sure in how far it is realizable, especially if the code is complex - but is it possible to generate a sequence diagram from code?


General Board / Stereotypes for actors possible?
« on: January 28, 2008, 04:37:04 am »
I have created a stereotype for the base class 'actor' in order to give to the actor another symbol than a stickman. What do I have to do in order to make it visible? (When I set the stereotype option in the properties to the new stereotype nothing happens)


General Board / message as return in sequence diagrams
« on: January 24, 2008, 02:03:34 am »

I try to show the way my C# code works in a sequence diagram. I have the possibility to call a method in another class(lifeline) or the one calling. Also I have the possibility to show returns.

In one case, one method in a class calls another method in the same class. No problem. But is there a possibility to put a return message from method 2 to method 1?

(I use EA 7.0.816)


General Board / Behavioral classifiers
« on: April 24, 2007, 11:46:24 pm »

for some time now I have following problem: In my project I rather often use actions with call behaviour and Activities as behavioral classifiers behind. If I create a new action (without call behavior), close the project and reopen, this action suddenly has a behavioral classifier and I have explicitely to tell EA <none>.
I am not sure if this is a bug because I did not have this effect from beginning and it did not appear with a new release of EA.

Thanx, R. B.

General Board / Bug when adding a composite element to an event
« on: April 22, 2007, 11:13:56 pm »

I just have sent a bug report to sparx about following:

When adding a composite element to an event there are graphical effects on the diagram like half of the diagram is grey or triangles  or other shapes appear on the diagram.

Add a composite element to an event. Sometimes the effects change when the mouse is moved.

General Board / Problem with adding an expansion node
« on: April 10, 2007, 10:38:52 pm »

when I add an expansion node to a region or other element a 'classifier' is required. But the list box that opens is empty (and cannot be written in) so that I always get an error message.

If I click 'cancel' the expansion node is integrated - with its default name. But even if I add an instance classifier then, I cannot change the name any more. (That is not totally true - I can change it in the Project browser, but is that the way??)


General Board / Attributes visible when using steretypes?
« on: April 04, 2007, 01:52:16 am »
when I show a class in a diagram I can make it show its attributes etc.
If I use a stereotype created by a shape script I can make it show single features like the name of the class or the name of the stereotype.
Is there a way of showing the attributes? I think the difficulty is that there can be multiple attributes.


General Board / Making visible element - notes
« on: December 13, 2006, 02:49:22 am »

In Classifiers (e.g. Use cases, classes) there is the possibility to add a note. This note is visible in generated code (classes) or in html documentation when clicking on the element.

But is there a way to show this note (that may be a  more detailed information about the contents of the element) in the diagram itself like it is possible to show attributes, tags and things like them?
