Duplicate validation in Enterprise Architect

Written by
Duplicatevalidation in Enterprise Architect Introduction This article is an example of using Enterprise Architect in a team. In our team of four architects we use Enterprise Architect for modelling the enterprise architecture in ArchiMate 2.0. For this government agency with approximately 1200 employees there is a large repository of architectural elements, building blocks and diagrams. Because we maintain this repository with four architects a number of challenges arise: Everybody uses the same definition of elements and concepts The repository structure is managed by one authorized team-member (the custodian) There is agreement about the architecture process and products These activities are…
As practicing Enterprise Architect consultants, we have the opportunity to interact with various corporates for training, consulting and providing Enterprise Architect demonstrations. We encounter the following standard queries: “We have lots of Requirements and Use Cases in Microsoft Word ™ documents. Can we import them into Enterprise Architect “? “Can our Business Analysts continue to work in Microsoft Word™ which they are familiar with and then have the artifacts imported into EA? These queries highlighted the need for a standard Word importer that helps the Enterprise Architect users to Import the existing Requirements and Use Case Models in Microsoft Word…
A colleague recently enquired about a simple way to run a batch import of several XMI files into an Enterprise Architect project. The client's project required importing a rather large number of XMI files, created from various Enterprise Architect projects via the standard XMI export (note : each file store an extraction in the XMI format from a selected part of the modelling project). Having to import each XMI file is too cumbersome, and Enterprise Architect's existing "Batch XMI Import" is limited to controlled packages i.e. involving a VC repository like SVN set up with the current project.

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.
