Presentation opportunities are available for you to come and share your EA user story with the rest of the EA community at the first French Enterprise Architect User Group event in Paris, France on September 17th 2015.

We are interested in just about everything you do with Enterprise Architect, from the organisation of your model to enhancements you have made using MDG or the automation API, or even just a project with which you are especially happy. That said, we are not just after the sunshine stories and would be interested in hearing about any experiences learned the hard way. Presentations of an obvious or purely commercial nature will not be accepted.
Some example topics are:

  • Enterprise architecture (TOGAF, Archimate, DoDAF, UPDM)
  • Business Architecture, Capability Mapping, Process Modelling
  • Systems Engineering
  • Business Analysis, Requirements Management
  • Data modelling
  • Code generation, MDA
  • EA add’ins/automation, scripting
  • Document generation
  • Simulation
  • Tool adoption/deployment
  • MDG Technologies/UML profiles
  • Model collaboration and management
  • Test management

Sparx Systems released yesterday the first official build (1207) of Enterprise Architect 12.

 

New features include user interface theming, a Windows Explorer like navigator bar, a complete redesign of the property dialogs, a new range of menus to access various features via the portals window, BPMN improvements (BPMN2 export, compliancy), requirements improvements, diagram shortcuts/quick keys, a database engineering toolset, a wireframing support to work on UI designs for common devices (Apple, Android...), support for XMI merge, built-in Visual Studio (VS 2013 support) and Eclipse links, a package navigator (replacing the package browser), a schema composer to build XSD and other schemas, an XSLT debugger, an XML and XSD editing and validation, and much more...

Note: a preview of the Wireframing UI modelling is available here.

Highlights of EA12 are detailled on Sparx Systems web site: www.sparxsystems.com/products/ea/12/index.html

sparxsystems enterprise architectEnterprise Architect includes the package baseline feature that lets you create snapshots / backups of your model within the project (data is stored in the project's database). Once the baseline feature is used, it can be cumbersome to find the packages that have baselines. Such information can be required e.g. to delete baselines that are no longer relevant in order to free some space, or to find the most recent backup from a model's parent package.

This article provides a user defined search, FindPackageBaselines, that lets you search through all existing baselines within the project, and display the associated package in the Project Browser.

05/2018 update: a built-in search module is available from EA 13 (common searches > find baselines).

During a team review of our Enterprise Architect project, we needed to find the controlled package matching an XML file located in the SVN repository (the EA project was set up on a SQL Server database, coupled with an SVN repository).

This article illustrates a user defined search created in Enterprise Architect, named FindControlledPackageFromFile, aimed at fulfilling the following needs:

  • Determine if an XML File identified in the SVN repository is still associated with a controlled package,
  • or find the controlled package that's associated with an XML file.

ea user group

Last May I went the the European EA User Group in the UK (Maidenhead) where the Enterprise Architect community gathered. Prior to run my presentation on the alternatives to set up a shared EA project, I attended several presentations, including the following ones that are covered in this article:

  1. Pragmatic agile model driven development using smart use cases by Sander Hoogendoorn (Capgemini, NL)
  2. EA Version 11 Cloud Services, OSLC and RAS by Phil Chudley (Dunstan Thomas, UK)
