SVG Diagram Export Add-In

Written by
Enterprise Architect comes with very powerful import and export capabilities for models and diagrams. But what we have always been missing is an export format for diagrams that generates really portable vector graphics (and not just Windows-only metafiles). Nowadays, the most suitable candidate for such a graphics format is SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics), and so we decided to implement our own Add-In that can export a Enterprise Architect diagram to a SVG file. This Add-In is hereby provided for free-use to the Enterprise Architect Community. Prerequisites The Add-In requires an installation of Microsoft .NET Framework 4. Install the Add-In Exit…
Changing the Appearance of BPMN 2.0 Elements 1 Introduction Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect provides a very rich modelling toolset for Business Process Model and Notation2.0 (BPMN 2.0), which is increasing in popularity particularly amongst Business Analysts. The BPMN 2.0 notation uses a common set of symbols, which have an icon to show their meaning, for example, the type of event that triggers the start of a business process. Each BPMN 2.0 element has a set of tagged values identified by the label BPMN 2.0 in the properties dialog. The value in these tagged values affects the appearance of the associated…

Written by
Find Usage of an Element The issue: You have an element in Browser Diagram Search Window and you want to see where this element is used. The solution: Right click on the Element (Browser, Diagram, Search Window) Scripts, Element Usage EA lists the usage of the element in the Search Window Which usages are detected? class, instance, object, part type in attribute, operation usage in diagram operation to Sequence, Behavior, Call Action etc. Which repositories are supported? *.eap Oracle SQL Server Installation: Copy hoTools.xml into ...\Sparx System\EA\MDG\Technology Open Scripting View (either in View or in Tools) Create New Scripting Groups…
To implement the script: Open the Scripting window. Add a browser group Add VBScript, choose a name Clear the default content Paste the unzipped script Save, close Usage: Right-Click on any Package/View, Scripts, <your script name>. Slow version does an exact analysis of RTF, can even handle enhancements (bold, underline, italics) within searched words. Faster version will result in wrong positve results if RTF-stuff contains the search item, fastest one will not treat enchancements in words. Enjoy!

Export your EA models to Eclipse UML

Written by
Enterprise Architect supports a UML 2 export, which produces an XML file valid to the OMG’s UML specification. Nevertheless, it is not possible to open it with an UML editor of Eclipse without any modifications, because the Eclipse implementation of the UML2 metamodel differs in some places. We developed an XSLT script, which can be easily added to Enterprise Architect as MDG Technology, for exporting a UML file. This file can be opened and edited directly in Eclipse with traditional tree-based UML editors. Currently, Class Diagrams and simple State Charts are supported.   Follow these simple steps if you have…
