Enterprise Architect Note – Terminology


Enterprise Architect 使用筆記…

基本名詞介紹

 

觀點 – View :

A View is a top level package, within a model. It can be categorized by purpose using different icon types, such as Use Case View, Component View  or Deployment View. Views are used to contain packages, diagrams and elements – the building blocks of your model.

模型觀點為最高層次的套件,對於一個模型我們可以以使用的目的和不同的圖標icon來將其分類,模型觀點常常包含著更多的套件,圖表和元素 – 那些建構你的系統模型用的組件塊

 

套件 – Package :

A Package is a container of model elements, and is displayed in the Project Browser as a ‘folder’ icon.  A Package is required to hold the model building blocks, such as diagrams, elements and other packages.

So, to begin developing your Model, you must create an initial package for your first diagrams.

套件為模型元素的容器,且會在專案總覽中以”資料夾”方式顯示,模型套件被要求要包含塑模組件,如圖表,元素還有其他的細項套件,要開始開發你的模型,我們必須先建立初始的套件來包含相關的圖表

圖表 – Diagram 

A diagram is a visual representation of the elements of your model, their attributes and characteristics, and how they are connected and/or interact with each other.

Different diagram types show different aspects of the model and the relationships between elements. 

圖表用以圖型化表示系統模型的元素,屬性,還有特性,以及模型間彼此的連接和相互關係,不同的圖表表達了模型不同的面向和模型間不同的關係

元素 – Elements

Models are constructed from elements, each of which has its own meaning, rules and notation. Generally, when you create a new element in your model, you want to use that element on a diagram.  The simplest way to do this is to create the element directly on the diagram.

 模型以元素所建構,每個元素都有其自己的意義和規則以及標記,通常來說當你建立一個元素時,你會是想要用在當下的這個圖表上,索以最簡單的方法就是直接於圖表上建立元素

 

連結 – Connectors

Connectors define specific relationships between specific elements, so you usually create them directly on the diagram by dragging the required relationship type from the Diagram Toolbox.  As for elements, the Toolbox automatically presents the connector or relationship types appropriate to the type of diagram.

連結定義了特定元素之間的特定關係,所以通常是直接於圖表中建立,EA的工具箱會自動的顯示列出適合這個圖表的可連接關係

 

重新組織

我們可能將元素放到了錯誤的模型結構中(錯誤的套件層中),但這也沒關係可以很快的透過軟體去修正然後重新安排,可能是把元素移至更高抽象層次的套件層或是更低層次或是相同層次不同套件中
