I started last year a personal addin project for Sparx Enterprise Architect; eaUtils was intended to gather features that have addressed situations I came across over the past years. Initial eaUtils features come from scripts that were shared with the community (see Enterprise Architect project browser scripts: sort elements by alias or by tagged value). Following an initial version launched in December 2015, enhancements were released in February 2016 with eaUtils 1.11. Current features include: Sort elements from a package tree, a package, or composite element by Alias, Tagged Value, Stereotype or Name Sort a package elements according to their layout…

Script move/delete items from Search Result

Written by
Delete or move elements to package which are found by Searches (SQL, Query Builder, Standard Searches). These vbscripts allow you to easily handle found elements and to develop your own vbscripts to manipulate found things. In effect these scripts use bookmarked or elements copied to clipboard. It's an extension fo Geert Bellekens VBScripting Library.   Abstract: Use SQL Searches to move or delete found elements, diagrams or packages copied to Clipboard Use Bookmarked elements from e.g. Standard / QueryBuilder Searches to move or delete elements Handle bookmarked or result of SQL searches with your individual script These scripts are using…
How to combine Sparx Enterprise Architect and BABOK to manage Requirements in a modern way? Days when Business Analyst was using only Word and Excel applications together with e-mail program are slowly fading into the past. This is a good thing. There are many tools that allow us to work faster and smarter. One of them is my favorite Sparx Enterprise Architect. The tool so powerful and versatile that it's hard to find single person who used all of its features :-) Personally, I used Enterprise Architect in my work for past several years to design IT systems and prepare documentation of them. I…
This script will search the text in the comments, scenario’s and linked document of the selected elements for terms in the domain model. If it finds a match it will create a trace from your selected element to the element in the domain model. The idea is that when we write descriptions and scenario’s we often use terms already defined in the domain model, so it would be good if we had a real trace from the element in the domain model and the element using it in its description. But it is hard to keep the descriptions and scenario’s…
With this script you can change set all the lines styles on a diagram at once, to your preferred style per type of connector. In Enterprise Architect you can choose from no less then 9 different line styles for the connectors. Unfortunately you can only choose from the first three to be the default line style for new connectors. Additionally you can also specify the default for Generalization to be Tree Style, but that is it. For me that is not enough. I have my own habits when making UML diagrams. For most connector types I use Orthogonal – Square, but not…
Enterprise Architect comes standard with an Find Orphans search, which is supposed to give you a list of all elements that are no longer used in the model, and thus better be removed from the model altogether. The problem with this search is that it will only report elements that are not shown on a diagram; which should not be the only criterion to determine if an element is an orphan or not. Not being on a diagram is just fine. I have lots of elements in my model that are not on a diagram, that doesn’t mean they are not used anymore.…

Pong with Enterprise Architect

Written by
For some time now we wanted to do funny stuff again. And what’s easier for the proof-of-concept for EA as a gaming engine than the 30 years old classic ‘Pong’? All it takes is some Wrapper for the EA-Diagram-Coordinates and a basic engine for collision detection. Both was done in C# rapidly. Astonishing is EA’s performance, because every 50ms the positions are changed and EA.Diagram.Save is called. Here is the linkt to the Video... Here you can find the original blog entry...

A web publication platform for an ArchiMate model

Written by
A web publication platform for an ArchiMate model Introduction As an independent Enterprise Architect (EA) consultant I often get the question what the possibilities are for publishing the repository content over the web. Of course in EA there is the possibility to generate a HTML version of the model but in most cases my customers demand extra functionality like key word search or a discussion module. In my current assignment for the National Health Broker in The Netherlands the introduction of a webbased solution was evident. One of the most important product of this organisation is the architectural documentation of…
