Import modeltemplate to technology MDG
« on: January 07, 2016, 06:42:12 pm »
Hello,

I have my "OwnTechnology MDG". And I have some "ModelTemplates" for my OwnTechnology MDG. I know I can insert in my .mst file a like to my modeltemplates, e.g. newproject.xml.
Link: http://sparxsystems.com/enterprise_architect_user_guide/12.1/building_models/model_templates2.html

It is not enough to insert the OwnTechnology.xml via "Project/MDG Technology Import". The Problem is that I have to copy "newproject.xml" to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Sparx Systems\EA\ModelPatterns" manual.
Is it possible to Import "newproject.xml" to my "OwnTechnology.xml", so that it is enough for the user to import OwnTechnology.xml via "Project/MDG Technology Import"?

Caro

No, the contents of the model pattern can't be included in the MDG technology itself.

This is just nonsense.

We can now deploy MDG's in all different ways (to the user, import in model, in a shared location etc...) but these model templates seems to have been forgotten!?!

Can we please update this feature so that

A) I don't have to manually update my MTS file, but I can select the model templates the same way I can select UML profiles
B) The contents of the model templates is stored inside the MDG file like everything else.

I'll send in a feature request to make sure.

I guess there's no change to this (?).
