Hi ,

I was trying to use KDM to UML model converter feature with modisco. However, I noticed the generated UML model doesn't include the description of relationships (generalization , dependency , import, include etc) between the java elements. Well , actually the source code (java) elements are just represented as Artifacts . Hence i wonder if Modisco consider the implementation of the code model of KDM meta-model . ?
otherwise , please guide me if i am not using modisco in right way to get the correct result of KDM to UML conversion with all relationships .

I am using elcipse Kepler , with modisco version 0.11

Indeed the KDM-to-UML transformation is not 100% complete (in the sense of covering the full KDM metamodel), but common kinds of relationships (e.g. generalizations, dependencies, etc.) are actually supported.
You can find an example UML model from the screenshot below.

However, keep in mind that the purpose of the two metamodels is different, thus some information in KDM may not have direct equivalent in UML.

An alternative (direct) Java-to-UML transformation can also be found from the ARTIST project's OS Release, still based on the MoDisco Java Model Discoverer.
