Recording Sequence Diagrams with EA is a powerful feature, nevertheless it takes some time to figure out how to do it. This Article is not a full tutorial but it should help you to get started. This content was originally posted on our blog.

Lately I been investigating the options Enterprise Architect offers to record Sequence Diagrams from code, because we want to learn for LieberLieber AMUSE.

And I found a pretty interesting result:

It only takes into account “Classes” and not “Instances”.

There are two links that proved helpful – a video tutorial from Sparx Systems and a Blog post from Tom Peplow.

Setup is similar to what is required for NUnit – refer to this Post for hints.

I used my very Simple Account Class from the NUnit sample.

Then I prepared a little runner that would record a Sequence Chart using Enterprise Architects Debugger.

The result I’m getting from Enterprise Architect looks like this:

It doesn’t take into account that I have two instances of the same class – I would have rather expected it to look like:

The feature is usable but you have to be careful when interpreting the results EA is showing to you.
