Bugs and Issues / Re: Build 1525 causes OLE Waring for MSSQL

No I did not switch! Todays 1514 build (V15.0) does not have the problem.

Bugs and Issues / Build 1525 causes OLE Waring for MSSQL
« on: January 09, 2020, 08:21:49 pm »
When using build 1525 with my MSSQL Repository I get frequently the following OLE Warning:

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server [0x80040e14]
The data types nvarchar and ntext are incompatible in the equal to operator.
E.g. each time I click on an item of a diagram.

If you are using an SQL DB supporting the SQL “With” statement, you could use something like this below to get your name space path on the fly.
Not “super fast” because it is  recursive, but if you only use is once in a query it works fine.

WITH PathBuilder(Parent_ID, Package_ID, Package_Name, GUIDPath, NamePath, IDPath) AS (SELECT        Parent_ID, Package_ID, Name, CAST(ea_guid AS VARCHAR(1000)) AS GUIDPath, CAST(Name AS VARCHAR(1000)) AS NamePath,

Bugs and Issues / Re: Generate Documentation; Scaling problem within Win10
« on: December 18, 2019, 11:46:32 pm »
Ok! I found the problem!
It is a kind of Windows issue, maybe not related to Win10 at all.

In Windows under "system" "display I changed the scaling which caused this issue. In may case a reboot fixed the problem, but maybe a logout/login cycle might fix it as well.

Bugs and Issues / Generate Documentation; Scaling problem within Win10
« on: December 18, 2019, 11:29:26 pm »
Up to now I used my report templates under Win7 and all worked fine. Now I needed to switch to Win10 and I am facing scaling problems causes my reports to miss information on the right hand side as well as my footer is missed.

Any idea on that?

Yes, right!

General Board / New RAS Baselines!?
« on: December 16, 2019, 10:22:41 pm »
Is there a way to migrate from model repository base lines to RAS baselines.
Once you have configured the new RAS baselines the old baselines within the repository seem to be not visible any more, what is bad.

Further on is there a way to transfer the repository baselines into RAS baselines?

It seems that this strange behaviour has gone in build 1520!!!!
Thank you so much!!!!!

If you use SysML you get several issues. Mainly the rendering of BDD and IBD, manly regarding handing of compartment change each version. So if you make those diagrams looking nice for Vx those are unusable for Vy and vice versa.

General Board / Re: Relationships in multiple diagrams
« on: November 01, 2019, 02:22:01 am »
I am not sure if I understand you problem right. If you have two elements related twice with the same type of relation, just delete one of them. It does not matter which one.
If those relationships differ somehow, you might use the "Relationships" window to figure out wich is which one.

I belief I remember that there was a version having done something about that. But this version somehow overshoot the mark and might have been reverted.

Bugs and Issues / Re: Activity Parameter Direction and Action Pin Kind

Yes, and multiplicity, ordering, stream, Control Type, ... is not propagated as well, just to support the user in creating inconsistent models. ;)

Bugs and Issues / Re: Activity Parameter Direction and Action Pin Kind
« on: October 24, 2019, 11:19:15 pm »
Hi KP,
yes actions do not have parameters but actions have pins.

And for call behaviour actions the parameters of the called activity become action pins.

But why can I specify a inout direction on parameter but not for the derived pins?

And why EA only derives the pins from the parameters and not the other parameter attributes like e.g. direction as well?

Any answer which make sense?

I had build 1512 stop working several times see here:,43327.0.html
For whatever reason this problem stopped after a few days working with build 1512, but then I had other dialogues which I could not close. It is sporadic so I cannot reproduce
Unfortunately, Sparx QA seems to miss the goals they should have. Several changes might have a positive intention but a bad result (like the senseless and even inconsistent element drag/drop hopping introduced in build 1512).
Years ago I just updated to a new version and I was happy. Now each time I first have to look if the new version does not too much destroy my diagrams, due to changes in rendering, before I search for all the other surprises.
In my dreams Sparx pays the users each time, the users find a bug and they pay more if the bug is not fixed in time X, to get QA alive. ;)

General Board / Re: SysML Block Operation and Action Allocation
« on: October 15, 2019, 10:21:15 pm »
Well, if you use things like operations, receptions, or classifier Behaviour the coupling between structure and behaviour is strong/fixed.
If you use allocation the coupling is weaker and you can have many different behaviour of the same structure.
Example: You can have processor like a intel core and you can allocate linux or windows on it. The processor is not fix coupled to windows only.
