Hi,

I'm new to eclipse uml2tools. Today I installed uml tools using the update
manager. Now I'm able to create UML diagrams. However I don't find any
option to import the xmi file or export the diagram as xmi. Please let me
know how to import and export xmi using uml tools.

Thanks and Regards,
Hari

The model file (extension *.uml2) is already persisted in XMI. Try
opening it with a text editor and inspect the XML markup. Whether other
tools that also "speak" XMI will be able to read this file, is a very
different matter.

For tools that are known to be compatible with Eclipse UML2, take a look at:

http://wiki.eclipse.org/MDT-UML2-Tool-Compatibility

Cheers,

Rafael

The .uml file does use an Eclipse specific URI and maybe several minor
extensions beyond the OMG standard XMI. To get an OMG standard XMI file:

* open your .uml model using the sample UML editor (Open With > UML Model
Editor)

* File > Save As.. and enter a file name with .xmi file extension

As Rafael said, other tool compliance varies. Note that this XMI file is
for XMI version 2.1 and UML version 2.1.1 (the latest versions of each)
