([WHUQDO, when the links exist between models. These dependencies are created during intermodel generation or external shortcut creation, they appear in the Dependencies page if the related model is opened in the workspace. If the related model is not available, you can use the repository to retrieve external dependencies

For more information on how to retrieve external links using the

repository, see section Auditing repository activities in chapter Managing Repository Documents in the 5HSRVLWRU\ 8VHU V *XLGH.

PowerDesigner lists these links in the Dependency page of objects property sheet.

The Dependencies page of a model also lets you check the model origin (Generated From tab) and destination (Generated As tab).

You can specify free collaborations between PowerDesigner objects using

 

extended dependencies. These links between package or model objects are

 

not interpreted and checked by PowerDesigner as they are meant to be used

 

for documentation purposes only.

 

You can complement these links by creating VWHUHRW\SHV to specify their

 

meaning. Stereotypes are used to define extended dependencies in all

 

PowerDesigner modules, and appear in the Extended Dependencies page of

 

each non-link object property sheet. You can type them directly in the

 

Stereotype column or select a value from the dropdown listbox if you have

 

previously defined stereotypes in an extended model definition (.XEM)

 

applied or embedded to the model.

 

For more information on creating stereotypes in an extended model

 

definition, see section Working with Extended Model Definitions in chapter

 

Managing Objects.

Example

The following example illustrate how extended dependencies can help you

 

document relations between package or model objects.

This example about generation from a CDM to two PDMs generated with different DBMS shows that the file object SourceCDM.cdm has extended dependencies with the file objects GeneratedPDM.pdm (for Sybase IQ) and GeneratedPDM2.pdm (for ASA7). These extended dependencies are defined by the <<generation>> stereotype to explain that the two PDM come from the same CDM.

For more Information on file object, see section Using file objects in chapter Managing Objects.

You can create an extended dependency directly in the diagram using the Link/Extended Dependency tool to attach model objects together. The object

from which you drag the Link/Extended Dependency tool is called GHSHQGHQW REMHFW and the object towards which you drag the Link/Extended Dependency tool is called LQIOXHQW REMHFW.

Extended dependencies behave like oriented links. When you move the dependent object, you also move the extended dependency attached to it. And when you move the influent object, it is replaced with a shortcut to preserve the extended dependency definition.

You can create an extended dependency between two model objects from the property sheet of one of them.

The object from which property sheet you create the extended dependency is called GHSHQGHQW REMHFW, and the object you add in the selection dialog box is called LQIOXHQW REMHFW.

To create an extended dependency you can select any object in the model or workspace using the Add Objects selection dialog box. If you select an object that belongs to another package, a shortcut for that object will be created.

The changes you make in the property sheet of an object have to be validated.

By default, you have to use the Apply button to commit property changes and the OK button to save the property sheet contents and close it.

You can modify the property sheet validation mode in the Options dialog box. If you select the Auto commit mode, any change is committed as soon as you change field in the property sheet. You have to use the Undo feature to cancel a change.

You can find script text used in the Edit/Run Script editor, in the Preview or script page of a table property sheet or in the Resource Editor for example using regular expressions.

A regular expression is a pattern of text that consists of ordinary characters

(for example, letters A through Z) and special characters named PHWDFKDUDFWHUV. The pattern describes one or more strings to match when

searching for text. The regular expression serves as a template for matching a character pattern to the string being searched.

In order to be able to search for text using regular expressions, you must select the Regular Expression check box in the Find dialog box (or Replace in Items dialog box in the Resource Editor) and type regular expressions in the Find What box.

You can use the following metacharacters:

0HWDFKDUDFWHUV

'HVFULSWLRQ

\

Matches a special

 

character

^

Matches the position at

 

the beginning of the input

 

string

$

"n" matches "n". "\n" matches a newline character. "\\" matches "\" and "\(" matches "("

"^Win" matches strings beginning with "Win

Lists show objects of the same type belonging to the current package or model. The properties of the listed objects are organized in columns. Depending on the properties of the listed objects, lists can be ordered or not. For example, a list of tables is not ordered, whereas a list of columns has an order that must be preserved.

The title bar of the list identifies the object type, for example, List of

Columns.

When you open a list, you display all objects belonging to the current package or model, not only those displayed in the current diagram.

You can enable or disable the display of shortcuts in the lists of object types by clicking the Include shortcuts tool. When you enable the display, the shortcuts of the object type you have selected in the current package appear. They are grayed out in the selected list as they cannot be modified in the current model or package.

When you include shortcuts whose target model is closed, some information such as comment or description for example are unavailable.

If both the Include Shortcuts and Include Sub-packages tools are enabled in the selected list, all the objects shortcuts of the current package and those of the sub-packages appear.

You can also find lists in the property sheets of objects. These lists show the objects related to the selected item.

For example, when you select the Attributes tab in a class property sheet you display the list of attributes of the selected class.
