Does .simp project file supports competitive access (multiple shared access ) in source control (example : svn) ?

Dusan Rodina - 20 February 2011 23:15:50



.simp project file has XML format, so it can be easily used in SVN. Its structure is split in two main parts - model (repository of all components) and presentation (diagrams). However, the direct support for SVN in the

software is missing at the moment.

I made an ERD, now I would like to export it to MySQL server on my PC. The SQL DDL looks impossible to convert to MySQL. I also tried Import database from tools, but there is only MSSQL conversion enabled.

Is there any solution?

Thank you.

support for MySQL will be added soon in one of following versions (most likely in the next one).

How to create relations between clases of diferent


As everybody already said, I think this tool is awesome. I'm testing it modeling a little software that I already have.

From here my question: How I can establish "Use" between 2 clases (a and b) each one on a diferent package, if I designed first the packages on one diagram, and after that, I added the complete class diagram to each one from the option "Add New Diagram".

Thanks a lot

RE: How to create relations between clases of dife


thank you, I'm glad to hear it.

I have wrote a simple tutorial for you (and other users):

For your case, the steps 5 to 8 are important.

RE: RE: How to create relations between clases of

Thanks a lot for the tutorial. It was really useful.

Maybe, for future releases, it could be a good idea to automatic show the public classes from the package on the package diagram or maybe, when I drop the usage control, I can directly select another class on another diagram.

As I already said, I'm really impressed with the entire tool. Thanks again.

Expose Generation Magic


i wonder if you have a classdiagram testfile that you use to during your development of the code generation --- would be great if you could share this so one can learn how the generator will work best;

merry christmas,

RE: Expose Generation Magic


sorry that I'm replying a little later. I plan to publish a documentation to generator templates (Q1/2011). Other improvements in the generator will be also part of version 5.

Now, it's too late wish merry christmas back :) so I wish you happy new year!

UML Artifacts objects?

Are Artifacts supported in Software Ideas Modeler?

I see where there the standard stereotypes are defined for "Artifact" in the application's 'Data\Lists\Stereotypes.xml' configuration file («document», «executable», «file», «library», «script», «source»), but I have not yet been able to figure out how to put any Artifact objects into my diagrams.

If I try to manually add an 'artifact' definition via the Elements.xml configuration file, I'll get errors like:

System.Collections.Generic.KeyNotFoundException: The given key was not present in the dictionary.

at System.ThrowHelper.ThrowKeyNotFoundException()

at System.Collections.Generic.Dictionary`2.get_Item(TKey key)

at SoftwareIdeasModeler.Core.MetaModel.MetaModel.LoadAllElementTypes(MetaModel metaModel)

at SoftwareIdeasModeler.Core.MetaModel.MetaModel.Load()

at SoftwareIdeasModeler.Core.MetaModel.MetaModel.get_Instance()

RE: UML Artifacts objects?

I will add artifacts in the next version (within one week). You can use temporary this workaround:

1. Add component

2. Click on Properties in context menu

3. In group box Stereotypes click on Add custom

4. Type artifact and click on OK

EDIT: Artifacts are supported from version 4.60.

formatting shortcuts at documentation

That's me again Job :P

I'm currently using your software for my graduation project.

It would be nice if the formatting buttons bold, italic and underline in the documentation area have the regular shortcuts. Then i don't need to push the buttons to switch bold/normal.

ctrl+b = bold

ctrl+i = italic

ctrl+u = underline

Dusan Rodina - 28 October 2010 23:26:28

RE: formatting shortcuts at documentation

Thanks for this tip. I will certainly add it in the next version.

EDIT: Added in version 4.60.
