method body

Postby benny » Tue Nov 29, 2005 8:46 am

hi

the magic draw team adds feature to feature from release to release. most of
them i will never use. but one feature that i am missing seems to be of no
interest for others - or not?

i like to work with magicdraw, and i would be happy to do my work from
design to write method body. why does magicdraw not have a language editor
to do that?

best regards
benny

Benny,

why don't you use our integrations with Java IDEs? Or are you talking not
about Java?
If you could give us some information on how you are using our tool in your
daily work and what other improvements will make your life easier.

Regarding your request - MagicDraw has a policy not to go into IDE market.
So that is why we are reluctant to add such functionality.

Best regards,

hi

yes i do most of work with java and i use eclipse with magic draw. this
environment works, but i would prefer to work as follows:
- select a method body.
- right mouse button opens a popup menut with an entry - "body"
- select the menu item
- review, write or modify the code.
- done.

best regards
benny

hi

when i could do editing of the body in magicdraw as i described: right klick
the method name, select message body and doing the work give me the
follwoing advantages.

1. no search and location of the method body.
2. i need only additional tools for debugging and profiling, say to finish
the production.
3. working on my laptop would be very quicker - it has only one screen :)

best regards

Benny,

1. Right click on a operation in browser tree will allow to navigate
directly to this operation in Eclipse.
2. Allowing to edit a method body in MagicDraw will need to integrate IDE
features like autocompletion, highlighting, etc. And definitely do not wish
to go to IDE market.

Best regards,

hi

yes this works fine on my workstation with dual-core, dual-monitor and up to
2G ram. but not on my laptop. coulld you at least provide some information
how to interface a small fast editor with magicdraw, so that i can open the
source in that editor?

best regards
benny

Benny,

there is "Edit source" context-menu item for objects under code engineering
set. It will open up an editor for you.
