Well, one is displaying compartments so is not an ArchiMate Node.

General Board / Re: Best practices for modeling of ETL chain?

I don't think I'd use ArchiMate for that.  Probably just UML.

Can't you specify them in the MDG file any more?

General Board / Re: Running Sparx on Windows 10 multi session

From a quick read, if the profile management includes the users' registry hives and they're set to persistent you should be fine.  That would be fun to have a play with.

General Board / Re: Working from Home with Floating Licences

The old keystore service doesn't support IPv6, and is also non-encrypted which makes it less than ideal for working from home if there's no VPN.

The easiest solution to set-up would be a trial version of PCS, which has the added bonus of allowing users to browse the model using their web browser.

or if you actually have enough licences create one file based keystore per machine.

We use direct access from windows 10 to hook into the corporate network and access the licence server.

Does that work now?  Last time I tried that there were IP6 issues.

Do you mean the tab name at the top?

Personally no.  If I'm going to use ArchiMate I use pure ArchiMate.  If I find myself trying to use any of the UML underlying the Sparx implementation, I stop using ArchiMate and switch to UML.

General Board / Re: Model used technologies/application versions
« on: March 09, 2020, 02:58:29 pm »
Yeah maybe but if you look at all the ArchiMate element options its looks like the best fit. Could have put CLR to be more equivalent to JVM I guess.

Not really.  System Software is a specialization of node.  It's where some kind of business logic is executed.  .Net isn't an execution environment, it's a class library, which makes it an application component.

You can put the versions in either the name such as ".Net Framework V.4.7.1" or in the version field of the element.
Draw up some diagrams that show the that Application A consists of .Net Framework connected via a link. The valid relationships can be found in B5 of archimate spec V3.1. between Application Component and System software are limited to vtfo or the other way its rvtfo. So out of those choices you could use association.

That would be a valid approach if you had a JVM to model, but you're really stretching the definition of System Software there for .Net.

General Board / Re: Import cmof-file

From https://www.omg.org/ocup-2/documents/Meta-ModelingAndtheMOF.pdf: "any UML modeling tool can be used to model metadata more easily".

I wonder, why these tools are not able to import mof-files and create the corresponding viewpoints.

In my experience OMG seems to hand-roll a lot of their files.

Well ...

You could have an application component called .Net Framework.  Another application component ".NET Framework 4.6" could specialize the first component.  You can build a library of all the different versions this way.

What's actually trickier is how you have built your applications, especially if you have multiple environments.  It's probably true that all instances of your application is served by ".Net Framework" but is it true that all of them are served by ".NET Framework 4.6"?  And who gets to update your entire model if something changes?

I haven't seen any slow down.  It may not be the server itself.

General Board / Re: Making EA friendly for new users
« on: March 03, 2020, 09:48:29 am »
Sure. It's just me... I'd ask for change. A tool should be right from the beginning. A car dealer would not sell cars with handbrakes stripped down by cable ties so you have to cut them before driving. Why is Ian asking "Make EA user friendly"? Because it is not user friendly. Simple, isn't it?

That's the thinking that gave us Windows 8 and Windows 10.

Any hint when the forum server will respond in non snail mode again?

I'm not having any issues.  Are you on the other side of some soggy cables?
