EA-Matic is an add-in for Sparx Enterprise Architect that enables rapid EA add-in development.

It uses the built-in scripting features of EA to relieve you of developing, building and deploying full-blown EA add-ins.
Aimed at corporate environments it greatly reduces the time to introduce new functionality.

With EA-Matic you can develop your EA add-in using nothing but EA, and deploy changes instantly to all model users.

The possibilities are endless. You can validate your own modelling rules, keep your model consistent by preventing the deletion of elements that are still used, add your own context menus, or make self-maintaining diagrams. The only limits are those of your imagination.

The table below shows how add-in development with EA-Matic differs from classic add-in development.

  EA-Matic Classic add-in development
Required tools Only EA Visual Studio, Sharpdevelop, or equivalent IDE
Installation of a new version Instantly available for all users without the need to install anything again on the workstations. Msi-deployment on all workstations
Languages VBScript, JScript, JavaScript VB, C#
Security access on development machine Normal user rights are enough. Local Administrator rights required.
