The Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect Community Site has undergone significant changes to support a better workflow and user experience, including a new process for revising published articles, interface design and support for new file types including video. Many of these changes have been in response to community feedback.

If you have any additional feedback please complete the form below:

Editing a Published Article

Several authors requested the ability to be able to modify a published document.  Authors can now make changes to a published document by simply selecting the 'Workflow' tab and submitting a 'New Revision'. Your current, published document will remain live until your updated submission is approved and published by Sparx Systems. The new revision process provides authors with greater flexibility and control over published material.

New File Types Supported

The Community Site now provides support for .AVI,  .PPT and XML files.  Authors may now submit new and exciting content such as XML search definitions, presentations, seminars, video tutorials, interviews, video case studies and much more.  Rich media and XML support will allow the community to better showcase Enterprise Architect.

Interface Design Enhancements

The content submission interface has been given an overhaul to improve the layout and visual design.  Changes include a new theme and color palette, bread-crumbs, context sensitive help, section highlights and improved labeling.

Password Removed

The user name and password for the Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect Community Site has been removed to provide easier site access.

Submission Guidelines

Sparx Systems has worked in consultation with the community to develop a comprehensive set of submission guidelines that will help guide authors through the submission process.
