I tried to read the model elements from the fowlloing .uml file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xmi:XMI xmi:version="2.1" xmlns:xmi="http://schema.omg.org/spec/XMI/2.1" xmlns:uml="http://www.eclipse.org/uml2/3.0.0/UML">
<uml:Model xmi:id="_6HP2ALLqEeC4NenKT57Ftw" name="MyFirstModel"/>
<uml:Class xmi:id="_6HP2AbLqEeC4NenKT57Ftw" name="University">
<ownedAttribute xmi:id="_6HP2ArLqEeC4NenKT57Ftw" name="dept_end" association="_6HP2BrLqEeC4NenKT57Ftw"/>
</uml:Class>
<uml:Class xmi:id="_6HP2A7LqEeC4NenKT57Ftw" name="Department">
<ownedAttribute xmi:id="_6HP2BLLqEeC4NenKT57Ftw" name="address" type="_6HP2A7LqEeC4NenKT57Ftw"/>
<ownedAttribute xmi:id="_6HP2BbLqEeC4NenKT57Ftw" association="_6HP2BrLqEeC4NenKT57Ftw"/>
</uml:Class>
<uml:Association xmi:id="_6HP2BrLqEeC4NenKT57Ftw" name="Owns" memberEnd="_6HP2ArLqEeC4NenKT57Ftw _6HP2BbLqEeC4NenKT57Ftw"/>
</xmi:XMI>

which was created from an in-memory model. To read the model, I have the following code:

ResourceSet resourceSet = new ResourceSetImpl();
resourceSet.getResourceFactoryRegistry().getExtensionToFactoryMap().put("uml", new UMLResourceFactoryImpl());
URI uri = URI.createURI("file:/C:/projects/Myself/MyUMLProject/src/out.uml");

Resource resource = resourceSet.getResource(uri,true);

System.out.println(((Model)resource.getContents().get(0)).toString());


But the last statment gives me the following runtime error:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.ClassCastException: org.eclipse.emf.ecore.xml.type.impl.AnyTypeImpl
at ReadFile.main(ReadFile.java:30)

But when I save the out.uml using a program, the program calls resource.getContents().add(model) first. So, why I cannot get the first model element after loading out.uml. Also, is there any API which allows me to read all instance of a specific element such as all Class' instances and Asscoaition's instances in a .uml file after it is loaded. Thanks.

Thanks for the update. I get confused about how to use that code.
what does the following statement do?

URI uri = URI.createURI("jar:file:/C:/eclipse/plugins/org.eclipse.uml2.uml.resources_2.0.0.v200606221411.jar!/");

In my previous program, it gives the file to be loaded? Where should I provide the .uml file to be loaded in this case.

Thanks.

I still have a question. So to be sure, I want to verify the following statementS.
My comment starts with // in CAPITALS.

ResourceSet resourceSet = new ResourceSetImpl();
resourceSet.getPackageRegistry().put(UMLPackage.eNS_URI, UMLPackage.eINSTANCE);

resourceSet.getResourceFactoryRegistry().getExtensionToFactoryMap().put(UMLResource.FILE_EXTENSION, UMLResource.Factory.INSTANCE);
Map uriMap = resourceSet.getURIConverter().getURIMap();
URI uri = URI.createURI("jar:file:/D:/Eclipse_Related_SW/Eclipse_Plugins/UML2_v3.2/eclipse/plugins/org.eclipse.uml2.uml.source_3.2.0.v201105231350.jar!/");

// I CHANGE THE ABOVE STATEMENT GIVING THE LOCATON OF THE BASE URI, RIGHT ?

uriMap.put(URI.createURI(UMLResource.LIBRARIES_PATHMAP), uri.appendSegment("libraries").appendSegment(""));
uriMap.put(URI.createURI(UMLResource.METAMODELS_PATHMAP), uri.appendSegment("metamodels").appendSegment(""));
uriMap.put(URI.createURI(UMLResource.PROFILES_PATHMAP), uri.appendSegment("profiles").appendSegment(""));

// NO CHANGES here, right?

/* resourceSet.getResourceFactoryRegistry().getExtensionToFactoryMap().put("uml", new UMLResourceFactoryImpl());
URI uri = URI.createURI("file:/D:/projects/Myself/MyUMLProject/src/Superstructure.uml");
*/
Resource resource = resourceSet.createResource(uri);

// SINCE I COMMENT OUT THE TWO STATEMENTS ABOVE TO LOAD THE UML FILE, HOW CAN I DO HERE?

Thanks.

Yes, you'd better find that jar's location/version on your machine.

What you had before should work nicely:

URI uri =
URI.createURI("file:/C:/projects/Myself/MyUMLProject/src/out.uml");
Resource resource = resourceSet.getResource(uri,true);

With the UML package properly registered, it should create UML instances
for you.

Thanks, Ed. It works. Now, is there any easy way to get
all instances of an element such as Class and Association
in the UML model? Right I iterate each element to check its
type via instanceof. Thanks.

I'm not so familiar with the UML2 model to know all the places that
Class and Association can be contained. Looking at the model definition
should help you answer that.
