Data Modeling Antipatterns - Part 1 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. This is part 1 of 2 in a video series. Part 2 contains two Enterprise Architect Project files that supplement the presentation.
During design and analytical works, the necessity to calculate the parameters of a business process or to estimate the complexity of the built software arises repeatedly. Most formal methods often require quite difficult calculations. On the other hand, during analytical or design works an activity diagram is usually created, which presents, in a natural way, the components of the business process or the elements of a use case scenario. In this article, I will attempt to present how to calculate selected parameters of the business process using activity diagrams modeled in Enterprise Architect and additional tool (Tormigo). The fundamental reason…
1. Preparing baseline for the package 1.1. Select the package for which the baseline is to be created from the project repository in EA, and then from the popup menu (right mouse button) select Package Control -> Manage Baselines or use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Alt+B on the selected package. 1.2. Create new baseline in the open Manage Baselines window by clicking New Baseline button.1.3. Enter the version number in New Baseline window, that will help you identify the modelling stage at which the baseline was created. Leave the Include sub-packages checkbox selected to include nested packages.   Figure 1. Adding…

Using embedded C Code Generation with EA

Written by
Welcome to our UML - Getting Started. In this tutorial, everything revolves around the first practical steps in the world of Embedded UML. With the help of a tiny object-oriented UML-Blinky we will make a small journey through the UML and enlighten the functions of the required software. We provide the necessary programs as free evaluation version for you either as download or as DVD. - Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect v9.0 (Ultimate Edition) - Keil µVision MDK ARM v4.20 Keil MCB1760 CortexM3 You can download all necesary software from: http://www.willert.de/uml-getting-started-en/ This will enable you to use the software without restrictions…
Group work in the cloud is a very convenient solution. Anyone who has tried to write the text with another person at the same time in applications such as Google Docs knows how effective and valuable these solutions are. Thanks to products such as the aforesaid Google Docs, the group work gained another dimension.In the present text, I will try to present how to manage requirements collected in Enterprise Architect using Google Docs spreadsheet.
One of the most powerful side effects of the SPARX Enterprise Architect document publishing tools is that it enables the team to keep project documentation alive and current. One of the things I hear most about out of date documentation is that it is that it is out of date because it is "a living document". Guess what, out of date documentation is dead documentation, it is not living. Living documentation represents the current state of the project's architecture, designs, and implementations. The PowerPoint and video that is available for download with this article shows how SPARX Enterprise Architect can…

Creating a UML Profile

Written by
I recently decided to update the Product Line Engineering Assets I reuse from project to project. In the past I reused a baseline project that contained a folder structure and the UML stereotypes required to do Use Cases, Feature, and Static Modeling. I wanted to enhance that package a little by creating a UML Profile of the stereotypes needed to do Use Cases, Feature, and Static Modeling. Creating a profile makes them available from the toolbox and the resources tree. The point of this paper is to show you how to create the profile, not use it or introduce Software…
This text shows, how in just a few steps one may generate a sequence diagram in a running application. The example has been written in Java and demonstrates the building of a contact book.
The Sparx Systems Key Store Service is used to manage the registration keys issued with the Floating Licenses purchased for Enterprise Architect Corporate, Business and Software Engineering, Systems Engineering, and Ultimate editions, and for related MDG products. This visual guide illustrates how to use the Key Store to manage Floating License Keys.
