Hi. There is a new integration build of EPF Composer available for
download and testing. This build includes the addition of XML import and
export of library data, and some Java 5 compliance fixes in the source.

EPF Composer builds are available here:
http://www.eclipse.org/epf/downloads/tool/tool_downloads.php

Thanks!

Jim,

Where can I find an object model describing the structure of EPF content
including its extensibility mechanisms (I see references to 'extend',
'replace', etc.), and the schema for importing such extensions?

Does this version allow these extensions to be imported? (Not sure if that
is what 'library data' means).

Thanks!

Hello DeDoig.
Yes, we need to spend more resources on creating documentation and
especially tutorials to get people started. IBM offers commercial training
classes on these concepts, which have not been donated to Eclipse, but we
will need to produce some content as part of the project asap. We are
welcoming any contribution from anyone, but I will also make it a personal
priority.

Currently you get a bit of an introduction on variability in the online
help. There is also a tutorial in the online-help, which however is not yet
updated to use OpenUP content (bugzilla is already filed), but you can read
through the tutorial to understand how it is being used.

Thanks and best regards,
Peter Haumer.

Hi Peter,

Does the current version of EPF support XML import of content? If so, could
you suggest some starting points docs to understand the model, XSD, etc. in
order to start trying the import?

Thanks and best regards.

Yes, if you get the latest EPF Composer builds you see "Export to XML" and
"Import XML" in the File --> Import... / Export... menus.

The xml schema is published on the EPF homepage
(http://www.eclipse.org/epf/tool_component/xml_schema.php). It contains
detailed annotations for understanding all elements and attributes. The
schema has been generated from an UML model, which you also find on the EPF
homepage as an html-published version of the model; so no UML tool required
to review it.
( http://dev.eclipse.org/viewcvs/index.cgi/*checkout*/org.ecli pse.epf/design/UMA-model.zip?rev=HEAD&cvsroot=Technology _Project).

Unfortunately, there are no tutorial, yet, but if you would volunteer to
write up a little tutorial white you are learning to use it that would be
absolutely fantastic. The way I would start is by exporting some things and
analyzing the resulting xml files and then creating my own based on what I
have learned.

Is there any way to generate a model which flattens out the several
<<merge>> relations in the package structure? It would help me grok this,
which might help me ...

The XML schema has all package merge relationships resolved. You could
review schema and model side by side.

You will see that the annotations in the schema are the same as in the
model, because we used EMF to create the xsd out of our IBM Rational Rose
model. We used the Eclipse UML2 project's package merge implementation to
generate a flat EMF Ecore, which then has been used to generate the xsd as
well as the code in org.eclipse.epf.uma.
