sparx_partnerUML with Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect for UML Practitioners; Course Content

    • Introduction to UML
      • Brief introduction covering what the UML is including diagram types and very brief history
    • Introduction to EA
      • What is EA
      • EA Architecture; where is the model stored and high level differences between versions
      • A look at the object browser and how models are structured using views and packages
      • Diagramming techniques
      • EA Options menu
      • EA Settings menu
      • How to search the model
      • Focus is on getting new users to a point where they are familiar with how to use the tool and where to find certain features; also trying to instil best practice early on such as using package diagrams to structure views and reuse of elements in the model.
    • Use Cases
      • How to draw the Use Case diagram
      • Identification of use cases and actors
      • Discussion on application within iterative development methodologies
      • Specification of Use Cases (Basic Flow, Alternate Flows, Exception Flows) using text
      • Common issues and their solutions
    • Requirements modelling and tracing in EA
      • Internal and External requirements in EA
      • How to draw the custom diagram for requirements in EA
      • Realising and tracing requirements
      • Change management using requirements diagrams
      • Importing and Exporting requirements
    • Activity diagram
      • How to draw Activity diagrams
      • Look at how to document use case specifications diagrammatically with activity diagrams and the benefits it brings
      • Look at business process modelling using activity diagrams and the advantage of using structured activities
    • Class Diagram
      • Discuss classes and objects
      • How to draw class diagrams
      • Differences between domain modelling and implementation modelling
      • Object diagram
    • Object Diagram
    • Package Diagram
    • State Machine Diagram
      • How to draw State Machine Diagrams
      • How to Model an Object State in EA so that those states are available for that object throughout the model.
    • Sequence Diagram
      • Discuss differences between using sequence diagrams for analysis or design
      • How to draw sequence diagrams
    • Component Diagram
      • How to draw Component Diagrams
      • Discuss Applications of Component Diagrams such as analysing existing Architectures to look for possible optimisations
      • Show how to link component class design to the component without compromising the structure of the model
    • Composite Structure Diagram
      • How to draw Composite Structure Diagrams
      • Using collaborations to model patterns or as a data mapping tool
    • MDA
      • What is a PIM
      • What is a PSM
      • PIM to PSM Transformations
      • Brief look at the transformation templates in EA
    • Code Engineering
      • Forward and Reverse Engineering Code including reverse engineering binaries
      • Forward and Reverse Engineering Databases (look at Data Modelling using Class Diagrams)
      • Creating Sequence diagrams from existing applications through debugging them in EA
      • A look at the Code Engineering Templates in EA
      • Discuss Pro’s and Con’s of Code Engineering
    • Data Modelling
      • How to forward & reverse engineer DDL
