How could view predefined stereotype and profile definitions? Here are two scenarios:
 1) if I want to look like what profile is included/used in my EA model/project, e.g., maybe the SysML profile, I may want to see how the block is defined, block extends class, in this case.
 2) I have defined a profile named myProfile, and publish a model pattern including this profile. Then I create a new model using this pattern, I could set element to the stereotype defined in myProfile, but how could I show the profile package and its content to see what stereotypes are defined and how?

In Rhapsody, this is simply shown in a package as read-only/reference.  how is it achieved in EA?

General Board / Use of environment Variables
« Last post by GrahamL on July 09, 2020, 01:05:00 am »
I want to have link to a file on the file system, which I can do
However I want to link to reference an environment value in the file path
e.g. %CONFIG_ROOT%Readme,txt wher %CONFIG_ROOT% expands to the users definition of that environment variable.

Is this possible

I was hoping to have gotten a reply on this already. The Data Modelling to ERD transform does not have this problem and I suspect that there is something in that transformation that should be in the Physical to Logical Transformation. I also suspect that this may have something to do with Sparx v15, since, from memory, I do recall having a similar problem with a similar transformation on Sparx EA v 14.

As a data architect with more years of experience than I am willing to admit, Sparx EA is a good tool to model data architectures. In this day and age data modelling is not just about what we used to do with er win back in the late 1990s and early 2000s.

Sparx EA, if used wisely, allows users to
  • do conceptual data modelling, logical data modelling, physical data modelling, and message modelling (including reverse engineering physical databases and xml documents)
  • map the relationship between elements in each one of those types of models
  • transform one type of model into another type of model

There are very few tools in the market capable of doing all of the above and integrating with other architectural disciplines.

Of course, I also agree that Sparx EA does not do any of the above perfectly and that, at times, it is clunky and idiosyncratic (but most tools are).

This error shows up when the database schema did not run properly. Please run the compatible database schema on the Prolaborate database as per the instructions below and try again.

If you are seeing this error after installing Prolaborate, run the Install schema on the Prolaborate database. And if you are seeing this error after an upgrade, run the Upgrade schema on the Prolaborate database.

Database schemas can be found in the Release Notes page. Choose a schema based on the database server used for Prolaborate.
That seem's to be the case.
I will go without typed variables.

Another issue seems to be using includes with EA-Matic.
Any sub/function from an included script doesn't seem to be available as I get errors like "... Variable is not defined: <function name> ...".
In scripts without EA-Matic it works.
I want to use C++ for simulation with an executable state machine, but I'm prompted to use the VS compiler, but for some reason I can't use VS, so can I use another compiler to support C++ simulation? What do I need to do if I can?
Do either of the stereotypes have the _strictness property? That will mean that the two stereotypes can't both be applied and therefore you only get the option to remove one and add the new one.
That seems to be it! Thanks, Eve!

I'll review our settings to ensure correct operation.

Working with interactive documents - Go to Session Page

In this presentation, Ian will describe how to generate interactive Word documents from your EA models, and use them to automate your model updates.

Search the help for executable state machines. This allows multiple instances of state machines.
