Ecrin Update Notes -1 Ecrin 4.0 © KAPPA Engineering 2005 Doc V4.00.03 • 09-05 Ecrin Update Notes The Ecrin project is the fourth generation of KAPPA software; it unifies the development of all KAPPA applications, and provides the choice to run them independently or as an integrated workstation. Diamant Saphir and Topaze are integrated into the Ecrin v4.0 release. Other modules including Emeraude will be integrated in version 4.10. The present document reviews the new facilities in Ecrin as follows: A. Generic changes /additions …………………………………………………………………..p1 B. Models Saphir / Topaze ……………………………………………………………………….p12 C. PTA Module (Saphir) …………………………………………………………………………….p17 D. PA Model (Topaze) ………………………………………………………………………………p21 E. Data Module (Diamant) …………………………………………………………………………..p25 A • Generic changes/additions A.1 • Single application Ecrin is a single application that can open and create documents of different types, namely for v4.0 Saphir documents (ks3), Topaze documents (ktz), and Diamant documents (kdm). The interface adapts itself automatically to the active document. So when a Saphir document is active the control panel is Saphir-like, when it is a Topaze document it is Topaze-like and so on. You can switch between one module and the others easily using the specific Ecrin toolbar shown below. If you run in stand-alone mode (see A.2 below) you will not see that toolbar. A.2 • Ecrin modes / licenses When Ecrin is installed the user is offered the choice to run in stand-alone or workstation mode. Stand- alone mode means that you work with a single application, e.g. Saphir, “as before”. In workstation mode, it is possible to work with documents of different types. Each module can be “Enabled” or in “Reader” mode. When enabled (and with the proper license) the module works in full: you can create, edit documents. When in reader mode, a module opens its documents but does not allow any modifications. Note that through the browser you can copy elements from a doc opened in reader mode, and drop into a doc for an enabled module. The mode selection can be viewed/edited in “Settings – Application” , see opposite > Ecrin toolbar Module selection

Ecrin Update Notes -2 Ecrin 4.0 © KAPPA Engineering 2005 Doc V4.00.03 • 09-05 If no license is found for an enabled module, this module is turned dynamically into reader mode and its stone appears in the Ecrin toolbar with the letter “R” superimposed. In “Settings-Application” you will find in the last tab the facilities formerly implemented in KeyUtil for license management and maintenance. KeyUtil disappears as a stand alone application in v4.0.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
