Welcome to eaUtils
Utilities addin for Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect
eaUtils is a free utilities add-in extension for Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect modelling tool. eaUtils provides features that have addressed a number of situations I've come across over the past years in my daily use of Sparx EA.
Most eaUtils features come from scripts that were initially wrote in Enterprise Architect. Some of these scripts have been shared via articles published on my blog www.umlchannel.com, and improved since in eaUtils Enterprise Architect addin. eaUtils was launched with the aim to gather all scripts in a Sparx Enterprise Enterprise Architect add-in for maintenance, installation, and diffusion purposes.
eaUtils 1.19 is available to download (help content has been updated).
Latest version: eaUtils 1.19.8 (October 2021)
