The Guidebooks cover several popular roles and disciplines and provide complete and thorough guidance and instructions for both novice and experienced modelers. The guidebooks introduce the topics and detail many critical aspects of each domain, explaining how to work with features of the tools. They also give detailed coverage of using Enterprise Architect to create industry best practice models, including different modeling approaches.
The following guidebooks catalog Enterprise Architect's formidable feature set available to developers. The guidebooks are provided in four separate volumes, each covering a specific part of the tool's feature set for software engineers. They are available in PDF format from the 'Resources' pages of the Sparx Systems website.
Software Modeling Fundamentals - Describes the powerful Integrated Development Environment for working with static structure models and forward and reverse engineering programming code in a wide range of languages, including user-defined ones.
Software Modeling Advanced - Describes database modeling using the Database Builder connecting to live databases, the Schema Composer for working with XML Schemas, Geospatial Geo-databases, and integration with external Data Sources, and tools such as Jira and ServiceNow.
Simulation and Behavior - Describes Model Simulations and visualizations that bring business, systems, and behavioral models to life. Automatically generate programming code for StateMachines and DMN based decision models - immediately available for inclusion in your projects and codebase.
Visual Execution Analysis - Describes the powerful features for recording, profiling, testing, and visualizing a code base and automatically generating diagrams that describe running code, allowing code hot spots to be analyzed, behavior to be documented, and faults to be identified.
