  • Course Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect : Content

    In the course Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect, participants learn to use the Enterprise Architect tool for system, architecture and business process modeling. The latest and most comprehensive version of Enterprise Architect is used in the course.

    Intro Enterprise Architect

    The course Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect starts with an overview of the structure of projects with views, models, packages, diagrams, elements and connectors. Also the most important features of Enterprise Architect are discussed such as links versus instances, requirements capturing, documentation generation, reverse engineering, database modeling and support for Model Driven Architecture.

    Requirements and Use Cases

    The course follows the development cycle of an application where the requirements are the starting point. Many diagrams in Enterprise Architect are based on the universal modeling language UML. For example, attention is paid to Use Case diagrams that describe the use of a system from an external actor.

    Domain Modeling

    Furthermore domain modeling with class and object diagrams and relationships between classes such as association, aggregation, composition and generalization are treated. The static structure of a system is the main focus here. Attention is also paid to the important difference between links and instances in Enterprise Architect. And also discussed is how you can map a model to data base tables with a live database connection.

    Interaction Modeling

    Then it is time for the treatment of Interaction Modeling with an emphasis on the dynamic aspects of systems. Typical diagrams such as sequence diagrams and collaboration diagram that are the realizations of the Use Cases are discussed here.

    MDG Technologies

    Enterprise Architect supports numerous modeling languages ​​for specific applications out of the box. For example the MDG (Model Driven Generation) technologies for Archimate, SysML and SoaML are supported and discussed. Special attention is also paid to Business Process Modeling. It is shown how business processes can be carried out by means of simulations.

    MDA Transformations

    Finally attention is paid to how Enterprise Architect provides support for Model Driven Architecture and the associated transformations. The difference between the Platform Independent Model (PIM) and Platform Specific Model and code generations to different languages are discussed.

    Course Forms

    All our courses are classroom courses in which the students are guided through the material on the basis of an experienced trainer with in-depth material knowledge. Theory is always interspersed with exercises.


    We also do custom classes and then adjust the course content to your wishes. On request we will also discuss your practical cases.

    Course times

    The course times are from 9.30 to 16.30. But we are flexible in this. Sometimes people have to bring children to the daycare and other times are more convenient for them. In good consultation we can then agree on different course times.


    We take care of the computers on which the course can be held. The software required for the course has already been installed on these computers. You do not have to bring a laptop to participate in the course. If you prefer to work on your own laptop, you can take it with you if you wish. The required software is then installed at the start of the course.


    Our courses are generally given with Open Source software such as Eclipse, IntelliJ, Tomcat, Pycharm, Anaconda and Netbeans. You will receive the digital course material to take home after the course.


    The course includes lunch that we use in a restaurant within walking distance of the course room.


    The courses are planned at various places in the country. A course takes place at a location if at least 3 people register for that location. If there are registrations for different locations, the course will take place at our main location, Houten which is just below Utrecht. A course at our main location also takes place with 2 registrations and regularly with 1 registration. And we also do courses at the customer’s location if they appreciate that.


    At the end of each course, participants are requested to evaluate the course in terms of course content, course material, trainer and location. The evaluation form can be found at https://www.klantenvertellen.nl/reviews/1039545/spiraltrain?lang=en. The evaluations of previous participants and previous courses can also be found there.


    The intellectual property rights of the published course content, also referred to as an information sheet, belong to SpiralTrain. It is not allowed to publish the course information, the information sheet, in written or digital form without the explicit permission of SpiralTrain. The course content is to be understood as the description of the course content in sentences as well as the division of the course into modules and topics in the modules.
