Do Androids dream of UML models?

Written by
Reverse Engineering the Android SDK with Enterprise Architect Recently one of our Senior Conulstants here at DT (Colin Coates) thought it would interesting to use Enterrprise Architect to reverse engineer the Android version 1.6 SDK (as used in the brilliant Google Nexus 7 tablet) into a UML model. He started the process by clicking the menu: Tools > Source Code Engineering > Import Source directory… Colin then used the following settings in the Import Source Directory (dialog) window: Source Type = Java (of course!) Recursively Process Subdirectories Create Logical Diagram for Each Package Create Package per Namespace (in the Package…
Using Enterprise Architect in a Team Environment often involves a version control repository like SVN (Subversion). This article describes a way to compare the current version of a package in your model, which is controlled under an XMI file in SVN, with an older version of this package. This is achieved through the use of the EA Baseline feature.
Running EA on a Server can be very helpful for Integration or Build Server Purposes. In an older Blog Post we documented how to do it for Windows 2003 Server - this way doesn't work any more. In Windows Server 2008R2 Microsoft introduced Session-0 security – easy explanation: so it becomes much harder for interactive service to run as Local System and interact with users. If you want to run EA (an interactive app) as an unattended Windows Service (as an interactive service) you have to do some strange steps to achieve it. Follow the Version 1.0 of the attached…
(Article originally published in SDJournal) This article presents an easy step-by-step formula that will get from code to a comprehensive test plan, that includes a complete set of unit test code, using the free Agile/ICONIX add-in for EA. Here are the 6 steps that we’ll follow: 1)Reverse engineer some code 2)Generate tests from Class Operations 3)Add test scenarios in EA’s testing view 4)Transform the test cases to test classes 5)Generate the unit test code from the test classes 6)Generate a test plan report We’ll illustrate this approach one step at a time in this article, using some reverse engineered ActionScript…

Discover and use EA Diagram Filters

Written by
This article is intended to illustrate the advantages based on my current experience of using the Diagram Filters, functionality added in EA version 9. Two case studies/examples illustrate the purpose of Diagram Filters: 1- filter dependency connectors between provided and required interfaces on a UML Component diagram, 2- show differences between the specifications and two implementations through the use of UML State Chart diagram.
CrossOver XI, the latest release of CrossOver, from CodeWeavers is the easiest and most affordable way to run Windows software, like Enterprise Architect, on Mac and Linux.

  Configuration When generating documentation, the Tormigo Integration module uses the API of the Enterprise Architect program. In order to include the diagrams and linked documents (LinkedDocument) in the generated documentation, indicate the directory of the Enterprise Architect installation in your Tormigo configuration. Tormigo configuration can be opened by selecting File / Application configuration from the main menu. In the Tormigo configuration window, the "Enterprise Architect installation directory" field should indicate the path to the EA installation. Project management Tormigo Integration allows you to define projects which can be assigned to more than one repository. In order to display the…
The Tormigo Integration module also allows you to  generate project documentation and scan project documentation when searching for notes to a model. The operation will find all the notes assigned to model elements in the indicated document. The condition for model element identification in a repository of a project is the inclusion of the element’s GUID number in the text to which the note refers. Presented below is an example of note assignment to a model element.   You can select a large batch of text. It is important for the selection area was with the guid element. Before you can…

Interoperability Unleashed

Written by
This presentation illustrates the importance of describing complex architectures using open, interoperable, modeling languages to produce a comprehensive, highly interactive view of your architecture that promotes more effective decision-making capabilities that are vital to an organization's ability to react quickly to market change.

Data Modeling Antipatterns - Part 2 of 2

Written by
An antipattern is a characterization of a common software flaw. An antipattern shows what not to do and how to fix it. As you construct data models, you should be alert for antipatterns and correct them as they occur. These videos show several examples of data model antipatterns and applies antipatterns to the LDAP case study. The first EAP file is the database schema for the LDAP product. As the video explains there are 11 tables. The tables clearly define primary key field(s) and there is a consistent naming style. For example, by inspection one would suspect that ClassContainers.clsID and…
