Tutorials, getting started guides, videos and workbooks can all be used to explain concepts and assist others in realizing the power and flexibility of using Enterprise Architect. Use this link to submit tutorials, training material, example workbooks and quick start guides.

Using an external source code editor Sparx Enterprise Architect can be configured to open source files in an external editor. This is good news for developers who already have a strong preference (and keyboard skills) for using a particular editor, such as Vim or EMACS. Working inside Sparx Enterprise Architect: Click Tools | Options...   The Options window is displayed. Click Source Code Engineering | Code Editors.   Clear the check-box alongside Use inbuilt editor if no external editor set, and then click Close.   Right-click an UML class element (in the Project Browser or on a diagram), and select View Source Code...   The source code will displayed in an external editor window,…
Morgan Kauffmann has published the second edition of “A Practical Guide to SysML” by Sanford Friedenthal, Alan Moore and Rick Steiner (ISBN 978-0-12-385206-9). The authors have made a very complete selection of supporting materials available for download from http://www.elsevierdirect.com/v2/companion.jsp?ISBN=9780123852069. These companion resources include the “Air Compressor”, “Automobile”, “Distiller”, and “Security System” example models, as described in the book. Unfortunately, the model files are only available in MagicDraw tool format (although the authors have also provided HTML reports for use by anyone who do not have access to MagicDraw). I decided to try importing the files into Sparx Enterprise Architect version…
In any given system under development, the business domain of that system is key. It holds all concepts important to the domain, and captures the business logic from the domain. An important question to answer is what to model about the objects in that domain and how to model this in UML class diagrams. This tutorial shows you how can achieve this, using Enterprise Architect. http://sanderhoogendoorn.com/blog/?p=1045

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.

  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…
