Setting Up Version Control

Enterprise Architect supports version control of packages through an interface to third party version control repositories. The three main types of repositories supported are the Microsoft SCC compliant version control applications, the open source CVS version control and Subversion version control. This paper presents the key processes related to version control systems, and provides insight into working with third party products that claim to support the SCC interface.

MDA Overview

The OMG’s Model Driven Architecture initiative is aimed at increasing productivity and re-use through separation of concern and abstraction. A Platform Independent Model (PIM) is an abstract model which contains enough information to drive one or more Platform Specific Models (PSM). Possible PSM artifacts may include source code, DDL, configuration files, xml and other output specific to the target platform.

Intro to Creating a MDG File

This Quick Start Guide demonstrates how to write scenarios using Enterprise Architect's Structured Scenario Editor. Included is an example ATM Banking System Use Case, from which Activity Diagrams, Test Cases and Testing Diagrams are automatically generated using the Structured Scenario Editor.

This Quick Start Guide demonstrates how to create Strategic Models, including a Mind Mapping Diagram, Organizational Chart, Flowchart, Value Chain, Balanced Scorecard, Strategy Map and Decision Tree. An on-line strategy for a restaurant is used to illustrate how Enterprise Architect can cross-link various strategic models, providing comprehensive traceability that enables stakeholders to trace a requirement directly to a recorded discussion or corporate strategy.
