Automated Estimation using Enterprise Architect.

Written by
This paper details an approach for creating automated measures of the scale and complexity of an enhancement, based on artifacts stored in Enterprise Architect (EA) from Sparx Systems. These scale and complexity measures can then be translated into level-of-effort estimates.

Adding Connectors to Diagrams

Written by
To execute this script import it into a model, open a diagram, right-click a class element and select Scripts | AddConnectorDemo. In the example model, add_con_demo, the script is located in the APG Diagram Scripts group. To install the script from the XML file: Installation Open the model Import the script to set the «RequirementsRelated» association - Project | Model Import/Export | Import Reference Data - Select the add_con_demo.xml script file - Select Automation Scripts in the import dialog box - Select Import - If it's not already opened, open the Scripting window -- View | Scripting - press the…

Apply Windows7 Jump Lists to EA.exe

Written by
Prerequisites: - Windows 7 Administrator rights - The Windows 7 Jump List feature currently works with existing applications   Please Note: Modifying Windows Registry Settings may cause severe issues.  Do not edit the Windows registry unless you are confident about doing so.  We recommend that you backup your registry settings before any modifications are made.   Steps:   1. Copy the following text and paste to a text editor. Then save it with .reg extension   -- from here --   Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.eap\OpenWithProgIds] "EAPFile.JumpList.1"=""   Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00   [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.eap\OpenWithProgIds] "EAPFile.JumpList.1"=""     --…
Purpose List all incoming Sequence and Collaboration messages for elements of a given package branch and give an indicator whether the message relates to a realized Element-Operation or whether it has been entered manually. Installation Create new JScript "ListMessages" in a "Project Browser Group" scripting group and copy the script content from the attached file. Usage right-click on a package or element in the element browser and call the script the analysis is done on all elements in the current package hierarchy a double click on a result row opens the properties of the connection so that corrections can be…
Overview When planning resource utilization for a large project, the task allocation details can be defined against each element in the project and assigned to a resource (a staff member). This process can be completed in Enterprise Architect or MS Project. This script provides support to exchange project details between Enterprise Architect and MS Project. If resource utilization has already been defined external to the model, this script allows you to easily import the details into your Enterprise Architect Repository. Import The import script imports Tasks from MS Project and creates a tree of Elements within a Package. This element-tree…
The code itself must be integrated in an EA Extension. This is not included here. To use the code you have to instantiate the class RefImage with open Repository and an OleDB connection string to the open repository. After initiation of the class you can use the method create to create a file in EA Reference File format to import the images completely via standard import of EA or you can use write to import each image directly in the EA database tables. For both methods the recursive option scans the selected folder and all subfolders. Feel free to change…

Model Simulation - A Simple Cafe Model

Written by
Model Simulation The zip file below contains a State Machine and a Sequence Diagram that model the operation of a simple Cafe. The file has been used to create video demonstrations of Enterprise Architect simulation capability. Exploring this model may help you to get started using simulation in Enterprise Architect. You may wish to view the video Creating a Sequence Diagram, which contains footage that illustrates how to simulate a sequence diagram using Enterprise Architect.
When updating a legacy data model, say as part of a transformation or modernization project, it can be beneficial to start redesigning from the logical or conceptual level. This also applies when the data model is used as the basis for other aspects of project development, such as generating a class model, or deriving user interface or form designs.A common starting point is a physical data model perhaps derived from reverse engineering a database. With all it's platform-specific details, you'll want to automatically derive an abstract (platform independent) representation.In this post we provide two MDA transformation templates for Enterprise Architect…
Overview Whether setting up a document library for a large organization or modeling a large system with a lot of detailed specification documents, it can be beneficial to organize these externally created documents in a model repository. We'll refer to this kind of model repository as a 'Document Library.' This script creates Elements in a Package tree that reflects the directory tree structure being imported. It creates a Document Artifact element for each file and links it to the Element.Filename property. In cases where these files are of type .doc or .rtf - they are imported as Linked Documents and…
