White papers provide in-depth technical discussion and best practice guidance on a wide range of modeling topics. The information presented by industry experts from the user community will help you learn new approaches to modeling and solving real-world problems using Enterprise Architect.

  Doug Rosenberg, ICONIX     Figure 1 - A “Secret Decoder Ring” may be required for Service Oriented Acronyms Trying to make sense out of the “acronym-scrabble” that engulfs Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) is a major challenge.  We’re going to take a shot at it in this article by defining a process roadmap and following a single example all the way from architecture to code. Along the way we’ll illustrate many of the key features of Enterprise Architect Business and Software Engineering Edition. The example we’ll follow will be a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) car rental system model, developed by…
Doug Rosenberg, ICONIX At ICONIX, we’ve had pretty good success when we defined an unambiguous development process, and presented that development process in “roadmap” form. We’ve developed process roadmapsfor use case driven software development, business modeling, design-driven testing, and algorithm-intensive software design. In this article we’re going to do it again, this time using SysML to describe embedded systems that involve a combination of hardware and software. Figure 1 – ICONIX Process Roadmap for Embedded Systems Development Figure 1 shows the top level roadmap for ICONIX Process for Embedded Systems. As you can see, our roadmap starts off by defining…

Requirements Management with Enterprise Architect

Written by
Enterprise Architect (EA) is one of the few UML tools that integrate requirements management with other software development disciplines, by creating requirements directly in the model. Requirements management is built into the core product, solving many of the issues of traceability, interdisciplinary team divisions, integration with change and configuration management systems.

Setting Up Version Control

Written by
Enterprise Architect supports version control of packages through an interface to third party version control repositories. The three main types of repositories supported are the Microsoft SCC compliant version control applications, the open source CVS version control and Subversion version control. This paper presents the key processes related to version control systems, and provides insight into working with third party products that claim to support the SCC interface.

MDA Overview

Written by
The OMG’s Model Driven Architecture initiative is aimed at increasing productivity and re-use through separation of concern and abstraction. A Platform Independent Model (PIM) is an abstract model which contains enough information to drive one or more Platform Specific Models (PSM). Possible PSM artifacts may include source code, DDL, configuration files, xml and other output specific to the target platform.

Deployment of Enterprise Architect

Written by
Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect is designed for use within large corporate environments. As a scalable modeling platform, Enterprise Architect provides a range of deployment options to accommodate the variety of modern enterprises. This whitepaper discusses the options available for enterprise-wide sharing of model information. Typical organizational structures discussed include a single site (LAN/WAN), a single site with multiple projects and multiple sites.
