Mastering UML with Enterprise Architect and the ICONIX Process
This is a CD-ROM detailing the company's
streamlined approach to UML modeling, using a core subset of fundamentally
important diagrams. Designed to get the user from use cases to code quickly and
efficiently, the ICONIX Process uses a minimal but sufficient core subset of UML
diagrams to help avoid analysis paralysis. Also included on the tutorial are
four examples from four different industries using Enterprise Architect which take the
viewer through each part of the lifecycle, one step at a time.
Enterprise Architect for Power Users
Enterprise Architect for Power Users provides a comprehensive, yet easy to access tutorial on a wide range of advanced capbilities of the Enterprise Architect visual modeling software. Topics include a discussion of how to set up EA in a variety of single and multi-user environments, and strategies to support projects of any size. How to set up EA to store models in a variety of popular version control systems. There's a tutorial on UML 2 that explains what's new with this major new release of the UML standard, which is fully supported in Enterprise Architect. UML 2 topics include ports and interfaces on component diagrams, the addition of Timing diagrams to UML, and much more. There's also information on EA's extensions beyond standard UML, for example, it's powerful built-in requirements tracking capability, as well as EA's powerful Code Engineering framework, which supports Forward and Reverse Engineering of source code, and Model/Code synchronization. EA's Data Modeling capabilities are explained in detail, and the tutorial features over 30 narrated Step-By-Step demonstrations of specific features of the EA software, such as Importing DDL Schema (shown here). EA for Power Users also features numerous live links to the internet, for example a reference on SparxSystems.com to details of EA's Automation Interface.

MDG Integration for VS2005
MDG Integration brings many of the benefits and rich modeling power of Enterprise Architect and UML 2.0 to Microsoft Visual Studio 2005. Intuitive navigation and editing of the model is provided directly inside the IDE using the EA Project Explorer. At the click of a button, MDG Integration allows you to reverse engineer and generate .Net code from UML elements using EA's template driven Code Engineering Framework. Reporting and documentation is also covered, with high-quality rich text and web-based document generation built-in. With support for MDA transformations, Baseline management and Engineering of key XML based technologies, MDG Integration provides the functionality required of a fully fledged modeling platform right inside Visual Studio.
