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…

Enterprise Architect Shortcuts Reference Card

Written by
Using shortcuts for any software tool can save a lot of time; but shortcuts are quite difficult to remember. So, my aim was to design a card that helped me remember commonly used shortcut keys in Enterprise Architect. The image below shows how the card sits on top of the keyboard and aligns with Function keys, providing a quick reference to Enterprise Architect Shortcut Keys. I really think it´s a usefull thing, so I´ve decided share it with all of you. It´s available in the attached PDF file. Simply cut out the template and fold along the dotted line. I…
  In order to copy a Tagged Value named "mytag" from the source model to the target model you can add the following to the Class template (Ctrl+Alt+H):   %if classTag:"mytag" != ""%Tag{  name=%qt%mytag%qt%  value=%qt%%classTag:"mytag"%%qt%}%endIf%   For more information on transformation templates see: http://www.sparxsystems.com/enterprise_architect_user_guide/8.0/software_development/transformationtemplates.html

Complete C# Add-in Template

Written by
This template, which is actually an abstract class, implements all EA (v 8.0.864) events that add-ins can use, complete with documentation. Each event can be used by simply overriding the event in the derived add-in class. Create a new EA add-in by simply extending the EAAddinBase.cs base class and overriding the required events. The EAAddinBase.cs is part of the open-source Enterprise Architect Add-in Framework hosted on GitHub, so for the latest version please download the zip or tar directly from GitHub Instructions can be found in the downloadable pdf or on my blog

C# Add-In test application

Written by
The Add-In test application allows you to test the menu driven functionality of your C# add-in without needing to close Enterprise Architect for each build. When creating an add-in for Enterprise Architect you need to shut down EA before each build because EA will be referencing the dll's you are trying to replace. This test application will mimic the add-in menu of EA and allow you to test the menu driven functionality of your add-in without having to shut-down and restart EA. A huge timesaver when developing Add-ins for EA The EAAddinTester.zip contains the source code for the Add-In Tester…

Change and/or Test external File and Web References

Written by
Referencing to external web resources and/or files is a nice feature. It enables to retrieve external information within the context of the model in EA without leaving EA or navigating through directories etc. But when a transition from project to production happens there is a possibility that all referenced files and/or web resources also have to be moved. There is no option to do a search and replace in EA on all external references to change the references. This script will help to perform the job. The script offers a couple of features Change the paths of external references to…
