Integrating SourceAnywhere into Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect

Sparx Systems EnterPrise Architect is a high-performance modeling, visualization and design platform based on the Object Management Group (OMG)’s Unified Modeling Language (UML). It provides full life cycle modeling for business, software, and systems. In this tutorial, I’d like to share how to configure the version control software – SourceAnywhere – for Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect.
