Re: FileNotFoundException - tidyWidgets.xml

Thanks Jonathan, That worked :D . I was following the instructions here - http://www.enterprise-architecture.org/documentation/doc-installation/148-installer-multi-user That say to un-select all the other packs and that was my problem. (I did actually try selecting some, but didn't think to select t...

FileNotFoundException - tidyWidgets.xml

Hi, When I attempt to run the essentialinstall506.jar it works fine all the way up to final step where files are being copied around and then I get this error: /home/michael/Essential Architecture Manager/install/tidyWidgets.xml Does anyone know what this is and why it's occurring? It appears that t...

Re: Modelling SaaS

Thanks Jonathan, that is very helpful, and consistent I think with what I thought was the right approach. One thing I was trying to achieve was that logical separation between the implemented application (represented as the Application Provider) and specific SaaS product. Salesforce.com is quite a g...

Modelling SaaS

Hi, I'm currently looking to model some target state architecture options and one possibility involves SaaS options such as Salesforce.com. In particular I want to make the linkage, but maintain the separation between the product/service being provided by the service provider and the actual configur...

Re: ECP-10 Management Interest Modelling

Hi Jonathan,

I'm pretty interested in this extension, do you know when it would be available to add into the meta-model?

Thanks

Deleting content when using a database

Hi, When I delete information, say an Application Objective because it's not applicable, there seems to be left an empty reference left behind in the instance browser. That is, the name and associated information disappears, but a reference is left that seems to be some kind of ID e.g. XXX_Class5000...

Linking Technology Hardware Instance to Actor & Site

Hi, Looking at Hardware_instance it seems like the right place to hold info about specific deployed hardware. Some of that information which is useful to know is where the hardware situated and (in the case of desktop hardware), who it is assigned to. Obviously in a lot of situations this informatio...

Objective/Principle rationale

Hi,

I'm wondering why rationale is captured in Objectives for the Technology layer but not Principles whereas the other layers capture this in Principles but not Objectives?

Thanks

Re: ECP-5 Skills modelling in Business Layer

Hi Jonathan, Sarah's points are pretty much what I had in the back of my mind when I've been thinking about this. I think there is a danger of getting drawn into setting up the model to capture all sorts of information that causes it to become less about architecture and more about something else e....

Re: ECP-5 Skills modelling in Business Layer

Thanks Jonathan, That looks good. The only other thing that did occur to me as I was looking at the sample repository is that it may be useful to know how skilled a Role needs to be or an Actor is. In the current model you could split skills up into different levels to achieve this e.g. Java SE 1.6 ...

You have indeed understood my requirement and your thoughts are exactly the sort of thing I was grappling with. I'll post into the ECP-5 topic with further comments.

Business capabilities, skills & actors

Hi, I have a situation where I'd like to capture information related to the specific skills an Actor has associated with them (personally). e.g. John Smith has skills with Java 1.6 SE. When I look at the Business metamodel at the conceptual level, Business Capabilities are defined and then related t...

I'll definitely look forward to seeing how this area develops as I think the relationship between current state, future state and a project (or projects) that will deliver the fu...

current state vs future state

Hi, I was wondering if there are any general recommendations on the best way to model current state (as-is architecture) vs future state (target architecture)? One obvious way is to create two models, each reflecting the respective state, I was curious if this would be the recommended approach or if...
