I can't get the login page to show.  Error 404?  :(

Suggestions and Requests / Modeling Support
« on: April 27, 2007, 05:14:16 pm »
I think its time for EA to start providing good modeling support for:
  • Cross cutting concerns as AspectJ and Aspect.NET enter the main stream of modeling development
  • Database views,
  • Use Case Writing; and,
  • Implementation of the remaining features of the UML 2 Specification (many of which have been mentioned on this forum).

Thoughts? Votes?

Suggestions and Requests / Font size control on Association Stereotypes
« on: September 28, 2007, 02:01:14 pm »
Please implement a control to manage the font size on Association stereotypes.  I'm planning on using EA for a  Podcasted UML course, but at the current size, the stereotype text is not visible on class diagrams.  

Actually, I should be able to control the font size of everything that might appear as text on any UML diagram.

Suggestions and Requests / Implement Parameter Sets
« on: March 21, 2006, 08:59:49 pm »
In Section 12.3.43, on page 431, figures 291 & 292, the OMG UML 2 Superstructure shows how to diagram Parameter Sets on Activity diagrams.  They appear as object nodes nested within a Parameter Set box.  These may be on both the input and output side of the activity.

I would like to see this feature implemented in EA.

Suggestions and Requests / Resizing reflexive associations
« on: November 16, 2005, 08:56:29 pm »
When diagramming a reflexive association (both association ends connect to the same class) I get a line with two 90 degree bends in it.  The U shape thus drawn is too short to allow proper placement of all the information needed (Link name, mulitplicities, role name, property strings, etc.).  It does not appear that there is any way to elongate the U to make room for the added information.

Can this capability be provided?

Suggestions and Requests / isDerived and Property String Support
« on: August 25, 2005, 08:37:35 pm »
Please provide support for Property Strings as defined in the OMG UML 2.0 specification.  subsets, redefined, union, ordered, bag, sequence ought to be predefined.  These strings ought to appear on the diagrams within curley braces and have their own controls on the property forms.

Similarly, please provide support for IsDerived=true attributes on associations and elsewhere as specified in the UML spec.

Per the EA help file, tagged values are for information not directly supported in UML and therefore should not be used for Property Strings.

As EA users begin to take advantage of the new Composition Model in UML 2, the derived flag and property strings will become more important.

General Board / 830 - What's new?
« on: May 30, 2008, 03:36:00 am »
OK, I installed build 830.  Is there anything new about it?  I can't find the normally provided list of features, etc.

General Board / Was I helpful Yes No Thumbs

Where is the documentation on this subject?  Closest thing I could find was polls under the category button, but I can't find that either.  :-/

General Board / Multi-lingual Glossary
« on: January 16, 2008, 02:55:25 pm »
My students are developing an application in which they need to address globalization issues.  They are developing a glossary of domain terms and their definitions.  Glossary entires will also include the standardized label to be used for any field on any and all electronic forms or reports designating such a field.  There will need to be a label expression in each of the languages the system will support.  For example: one might need a lable for a "Purchase Order Number" (of PO #) and what ever the, let's say French, equivelant of that might be.  Alas, and with apologies to the international community, we only know the US English language.  The target domain for this application is an Ice Cream Manufacturing Plant.

Is anyone on this forum aware of any resources that we might use to map an English Business label into other languages?  We'll take what ever we can get, but one in electronic form would be best I think.


General Board / MS Word 2 WIKI macro

Is anyone aware of an MS Word macro that will convert a Word document to the EA WIKI format?

General Board / Association stereotype lable font size
« on: September 28, 2007, 02:11:09 am »
I have an association line with a stereotype of <<merge>>.  How can I increase the font size of the stereotype lable (i.e.; the string <<merge>>) ?

General Board / Scenario visibility
« on: August 03, 2007, 04:01:49 pm »
In the property section of my Use Case element, I've declared several scenarios.  How do I get them to appear on my Use Case diagram?   :-/


General Board / Use Case Pre & Post Condition Visability
« on: July 27, 2007, 07:34:13 am »
Re: Build 814

How do I make the Pre- & Post-conditions specified on a Use Case element's properties in a Use Case Diagram visible?  I added the conditions as Pre & Post condition constraint types in element's property window.

I've turned on every visibility check box I can find, but nothing happens on the diagram.  :(

General Board / Responsibilities Tab
« on: June 16, 2007, 09:10:04 pm »
Context EA Beta 7/2
How do I get the "Responsibilities" tab on a class's property screen to appear?  I've activated the feature's visibility check-box.

General Board / Beta 7.0 paper size specification
« on: May 22, 2007, 08:02:28 am »
When printing a diagram, my printer (HP Laser Jet 4) wants me to load A4 paper.  I use letter size paper only.  I tried to specify the correct paper size in the printer setup, but that didn't fix the problem.  Not ready to report a bug yet, the problem is probably mine.

Where in EA do I need to go to set a default paper size?
