It's a good new the upgrade of ARIS Express, but I have questions about how could I configurate the filter and template that you have added in this portal.
I only have the Express version, do I need the ARIS Platform to use this files?
yes, you are right. The filter and template attached to this post support the import of ARIS Express models into the ARIS business server.
Express itself can't be configured.
What will happen if I import the models using Express 2.2 without installing the new filters and templates?
I ask because I have created filters and templates specific to the restrictions we enforce for our database. The first time we imported models from Express into the database it changed the font on 1000+ models.
you can find more information about the ADF import here.
Thank you for the information on how to import.
Are there any consequences of not using the ARIS Express Filter and/or Template when importing other than appearance (object size, font, font size, etc.)?
nope, it's all about the visual appearance. That makes it possible for you to decide whether you want to have the standard ARIS design, if the new design does not fit to your conventions.
Press "F7" to open Linked file on an activity seems to be broken in version 2.2
Was working before the update.
nope, F7 still works (just cross-checked it). Make sure, that you selected the object in the modeling window. If you e.g. focussed the name attribute of the attribute view or the model overview, F7 (Run) is not executed.
Thanks for replying, Frank
This is how I selected the object before press F7 (the linked file doesn't have an icon either, I tried both direct link file path and relative link file path none of them work)
Between the update and last time I use Aris Express (with link working), I re-installed Java Runtime Environment from JRE 1.6.0_20 32bit to 1.6.0_20 64bit
would it be the problem cause
if you select the object and place show the attribute list, you got a button to start the link (see red mark in screenshot below).
Does is work then? If no, then there is something wrong with the link...
Link is functional again after I re-install Aris express using installer I downloaded on 7 June.
The new installer I downloaded on 12 July maybe have bugs..:D
I have imported Express template to ARIS BA 7.1.490592 and tried to apply it on EPC model but my objects did not become as Express objects.
The same with other model types avalaible for Express.
So what can be the reason of it?
This is probably because they are different objects between ARIS BA and Express. For example, Express uses the activity for its function object type whereas BA uses the function for its function object type. The function is not defined in the ARIS Express template. To make the functions look like the activities in ARIS Express, you have to select the object and under the object appearance menu, you have to change the symbol to activity.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
Hi, will Aris express 2.2 run with any version of java runtime after the 6.10 ?
yes, at least as long as Oracle does not make a huge mistake ;-)
Java versions should be compatible to earlier ones. Logically, if a new JRE version is released, we are going to make a test directly
