About this site

As per my post “why this site” the aim of this site was to capture my findings of exploring Enterprise Architect (EA) and its increasing breadth and depth.   I wanted to look at EA and review what is possible, what has been added to the product that I’ve not tried, rediscover stuff that I may well have forgotten and explore ways of extending and integrating EA with the other tools that are used.

In doing this research it’s important to note that EA is only part of the solution so whether the task is to produce a specification, define a process or develop an application it will always be more than EA.  The stuff around EA involves

  • people – and here there is great diversity from those who truly understand to those that don’t even want to try.  The fact is that in the “design and development” process we may need to extract information from people as well as provide them with the information they need.
  • tools – information is held and managed in different tools and solutions often involve interacting with or possibly integration with other tools

This content on this site is not an exhaustive analysis of EA nor a location for those seeking support with EA (this can be found elsewhere, in particular on the Sparx Systems support or community sites), but rather a place where I can share my knowledge and experience with others who may be on a similar path.

    Hi Adrian,

    Very interesting work you’re doing here! I would like to check out the work on eaworkspace.com but unfortunately I’m getting the following error when I try to access that url.

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘[‘ in /home/eatoolshop/public_html/components/com_content/content.php on line 11

    Let me know if there is any way for me to get access.

      Hi Jeff

      Just had a look and looks like the shop part of their site is down – I’ll drop them a line and hopefully it will be back up soon.
      In the meantime if you are looking for information on eaForms you can check out http://eaforms.exploringea.co.uk
