Has anybody tried importing SID UML models into Tigerstripe project ? I am
trying to import the models using the "UML2 import" but it is not
importing. There are no log messages also ...

Hi Iyappan,

The short answer is that we've done it in the past, with older versions of
the SID with mixed results. We encountered 2 issues:
- first, UML2 is exported by various tools in multiple XMI flavors. Not all
of these flavors would import properly. We are using the uml2 component from
EMF to import, so your changes will increase if you have an XMI format that
is compatible with this.
- second, because Tigerstripe is intended for generation, the model needs to
be "syntactically perfect" (model-driven vs model-inspired). For example in
a number of instances in SID, associations have no name, default values are
used to include comments in English for the reader, etc... This will break
our import :-(. Overtime, we've improved the robustness of the import
(assigning a default name when an element has none, etc...), but it seems we
are not there yet.

[I've received the version thru a direct email. Thx. I'll have a go at it
and see what exception is being thrown. BTW, you can have a look at the
Eclipse Error log to get a clue of what is going on]

Hi Iyappan,

I sent you an email directly, but I didn't hear back from you. The files you
sent me weren't UML2 exports but the original Rose files.
Could you export instead? I can't import the Rose files directly.

Thanks,
Eric
