Hi,

I have two uml models and corresponding ecore exported files. I would like
to refer the Types in one of these uml models in another uml model. Is it
possible? Also how do I make sure that corresponding ecore files are
referenced as well?

Currently I am creating primitive types whenever I need to refer to such a
type. But they are simply too many of them.

Thanks
Pradeep

Hi Pradeep,

You could do something like what is done with the primitive types libraries
under org.eclipse.uml2.uml.resources\libraries.

If you want to use those, you could select "Load Resource..." from your "UML
Editor" menu, then you use use the types in the libraries.
When you export to ecore, you should get prompted to export those referenced
libraries at that time.

on the UML2 documentation page for an explanation of how to reuse types from
type libraries.
