And: they are interpreted and not compiled. If you have diagrams with lots of shape scripts to be executed you will appreciate a calm mind - ommm

You should send a bug report (link below in the Support section). Good luck with that.

No. Shape Script is very limited.

You have spaces in you path (around the "\") which should not be there.

I'm also mainly using Python for scripting (EA). There are not many Python-related EA question. I remember one where I also posted a bit of the framework I've done: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/58758722/python-script-unable-to-save-connector-enterprise-architect

Thanks Perry. If you happen to have a finding, just let me know.

SO = StackOverflow. Everyone should know it ;-)

Probably the only one to hop on would be Geert. I'd ask such questions on SO where you find lots of SQL gurus.

While I don't have a problem with generalizing Actors, I don't think that this is a meaningful concept for UCs since a UC should be a unique added value for the SUC. Generalization would be a contradiction to that paradigm and (in all cases I saw so far) just start of functional decomposition.

Anyhow, in V13.5 I see the inherited tags for actors. Probably a V15 issue.

q.

P.S. Just looked into V15.1 which also shows the inherited tag.

P.P.S. Cant tell anything about the RM since I never use it.

Bugs and Issues / Re: EA Viewer Linux can't connect to Cloud with Wine 5
« on: January 25, 2020, 09:12:36 pm »
No idea, but likely you should go with a wine version being explicitely mentioned to be working. I guess it's some 64 bit weirdness. I once got it working with some wine version, but it felt odd in some way. So I prefer to have a Windoze VM (under Parallels) which keeps the djinn in his bottle ;-)

Bugs and Issues / Re: V15.1 - RefGuid - Where's secret sauce?
« on: January 25, 2020, 09:07:53 pm »
Yes. I got that wisdom from one of the supporters here many years ago. Like that with guid from package and its element twin being the same. Too bad the MDG GUID prefix creation is not published. I guess my credit for any of the Sparxians is spent all the way. So that will stay a secret for all days, most likely.

I see. That would be strange and probably be an error to be reported. Sorry, no time to verify that currently...

I guess EA is becoming better at determining which tagged value belongs to which profile.

Geert
They use the start of the TV GUID to determine the MDG. Like so (the first part is taken from an existing TV GUID of the desired MDG):

Code: [Select]
"{FA7CEB8C-2F74-6c2f-%s}" % guid[19:]
I haven't figured out which algorithm is used and cracking it with those few examples is impossible.

General Board / Re: Model Discussion
« on: January 24, 2020, 07:35:36 pm »
People (including me) had asked that for a long time. The same for the other "gimmicks". I also think that an internal discussion should be essential. But, repeating myself, it's nothing more than a marketing instrument. They shouldn't be wasting their time in so many things. But they do :-/

I just live with the fact that EA is bloated with marketing functions which obviously are there to give sales personell a me-too argument. I just don't use them. Too bad Sparx is giving us a hard time to get rid of them. Like all those MDGs which come unwanted and just end in people using MDGs they should not. Use tools that were build for use cases you need. In this discussion case I just came up with using GUIDs to reference EA elements (of any type) to deal with outside EA and locate them back later.

You get different life lines for each port (which of course has inherted the operations of the ifaces it realizes). This way you can show more details like which port of a component handles which message.
