I have several potential use cases that would fit to the Decision Table feature.
However I do not use it, because it is so limited by just allowing appending rows.

Adding the possibility to insert rows before existing rows or move existing row, is really a basic feature, which is from my point of view the minimum the make Decision Tables usable at all.

As an example I have use cases which are made more precise e.g. by activities, sequences or state machines.

To maintain the relation between the use cases the concretization I use the traceability matrix feature, but I need several of those, depending on the modeling language I have chosen for the concretization.

The specification manager is a good feature to enrich the model with explaining text.
Currently either one specific item type or any item type can be edited.

However it would be more useful if it would be possible to select several but not any item type to be shown. Further on also packages can have textual descriptions and currently there is no way to maintain this package notes by using the specification manager.

In a template fragment I call a custom script method and after generating a document all works fine.

When I use the templates and scripts in a published MDG, the script seems to be not called at all.

What I realized (when using the MDG) is, that in the “Custom Query” tab of the template fragment the method call is there but the script containing the file is not selected in the form.

Any idea to get this problem solved?

Generated documents typically require meta data to be inserted also on cover pages and footers and footers.
With “Report  Constants” and “Project Constants” there is already some limited functionality available, however if e.g. document classification, document numbers, … are needed the templates have to be duplicated (what is a nightmare  when maintaining lots of documents).
Possible solutions:
Allow to call template fragments within cover pages, headers, footers that will really be executed.
Allow to access tagged values (meta data of the report) from the report root package via  “Report Constants”  at any place in any kind of template.

Suggestions and Requests / Add Delete Linked Document in menu Element

Linked Documents to a packkage can currently only removed when the package is dropped of a diagramm. This is somehow cumbersomely.

Suggestions and Requests / TER based RTF generator Document Options
« on: May 23, 2006, 12:20:11 am »
I request to:
1) remove the control “Adjust Heading Levels”
2) promote any style (any 1, any 2, any 3) to nested model elements where a style is assigned to, and as header 1, header 2, …. should work (but does not)

To 1:I belief you just took over this dialog from the old generator. However in the new generator you can define the depth of headers by style, list overrides and list numbering. Ones you have done this work, why you should switch it of afterwards?

To 2 By not only promoting header n to nested elements it would be possible e.g. to number generated figures = diagrams, tables … as well.

General Board / Problem with windows authentication
« on: May 04, 2007, 01:50:42 am »
We used over several versions up to now EA. Former times windows authentication was not enabled. In the meanwhile we switched it on.

According to our experience that works fine for PC’s which did not connect to the project before the windows authentication was switched on.
For the other PC’s the login window still appears. Deinstalling and Reinstalling EA did not help.
So we tried via filemon and regmon to find out where such machine and project related information is stored, but without success.
Is there anyone having an idea what to do to solve that problem?

General Board / How to delete Linked Document... assigned to packa

How to delete Linked Document... assigned to package?
In the  menu "Element/Linked Document... I can assign an rtf document to a package. But how can I delete or remove such a link?

For other elements there exists a item in the context menu to delete such a document. But I found nothing of packages.

General Board / Accept Windows Authentication for Oracle Repositor
« on: June 06, 2006, 11:29:54 pm »
I scanned the topics regarding this issue but those did not give me a clear indication if the feature works for oracle or not. At least I do not get it work.

I changed my System User Login in the EA Oracle repository to DOMAIN\MYUSERNAME and I expected the feature to work but it does not.
What about the System User password? Shall it be the same as the Windows password or does it not give a damn about that issue?
Are any other thinks I have to care about?

General Board / RTF Generator Chapter Numbering
« on: May 23, 2006, 12:17:39 am »
I am using the TER based RTF generator and I am facing the problem to be not able to define a chapter numbering working well.

What I have done, is creating the stuff (style, list and overrides, …) I think needed. This works fine as long as I only mark static text with those headers. However if I use nested model elements with the same style the “header n style” is promoted to the nested elements but the assigned lists had gone.
So I think there is a small bug in the generator.

General Board / EA 5.0 crashes
« on: May 19, 2005, 03:49:21 am »
I am using EA with PVCS as version control system. Our project data is stored in an oracle data base. On some machines EA works, but sometimes a bit strange. So, controlled packages are sometimes not editable until a checkout has been started. Even if the checkout did not work afterwards we can edit the package. We have an other machine were EA just crashes without any message when we try to login.
Removing the VCConfigs in the registry prevent the crash but a manual new setup of the VCConfigs information within EA let to a crash again.

General Board / XML Schema generation HowTo
« on: November 03, 2004, 06:00:05 am »
I am fiddling around with the XML-Schema generation and I had very quickly some success to design my schema somehow top down.

On the leaves of my tree I get lost. I don’t know how to model e.g.

<xs:element name="Doc.Title" maxOccurs="unbounded">
  <xs:extension base="xs:string">
   <xs:attribute ref="Language" use="required"/>
   <xs:attribute name="Status" use="required">
    <xs:restriction base="xs:NMTOKEN">
     <xs:enumeration value="UnderDevelopment"/>
     <xs:enumeration value="Released"/>
     <xs:enumeration value="Obsolete"/>
     <xs:enumeration value="Replaced"/>
or in other words just a node containing a text node and two attributes.

Any help is welcome.
