BUG: Mult. stereotypes missing on DB
« on: October 10, 2006, 01:11:01 am »
The ability to apply multiple stereotypes to other than classifiers was a big advancement in EA 6.5(798.)  8)

However, they didn't make it to the Data Modelling profile.  :-X

Neither of the Table Detail features: Columns / Operations have the little builder button...

Please can this be fixed?

I second Paolo's request, and would add that multiple stereotypes don't seem to work as expected on existing existing <<table>> elements.

If you assign a second stereotype to an existing table element on a diagram, the table does not receive the tagged values from the second stereotype; even after synchronizing in the Resource window.

IMHO, EA should allow existing tables to receive tagged values from multiple stereotypes.  The fact that it does not means that if you import a database schema from an ODBC data source, you have to manually create and assign new tagged values to the tables that are created.
Cheers,

Greg

I've had a response from Sparx and the changes required are substantial.

I replied that we aren't in a big hurry but it would nice if we got them soon.

I'll leave it up to others to see if they can raise the priority...
