Hello all, I need to import some model (packages, use cases, classes, components) from Sparx Enterprise Architect to Papyrus 4.7.

Normally I would export xmi for Sparx (excluding all diagrams), change the file type to *.uml, drag onto a Papyrus project explorer folder, then right click on it and "new Papyrus model" and I should be able to reuse all elements and recreate my diagrams manually. Except now it does not work! The new model wizard gets stuck at "Finish" (there must be some crash/exception somewhere). Maybe it's 4.7 or I'm doing something wrong.

I tried exporting different versions of xmi from Sparx, and also manually editing the xmi to change the uml UIR to Papyrus type. Here are some of the files I tried to import - all failed! Does anyone have any advice?

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="windows-1252"?>
<xmi:XMI xmi:version="2.1" xmlns:uml="http://www.omg.org/spec/UML/20090901" xmlns:xmi="http://schema.omg.org/spec/XMI/2.1" xmlns:thecustomprofile="http://www.sparxsystems.com/profiles/thecustomprofile/1.0"><xmi:Documentation exporter="Enterprise Architect" exporterVersion="6.5"/><uml:Model xmi:type="uml:Model" name="EA_Model"><packagedElement xmi:type="uml:Package" xmi:id="EAPK_85FC466A_60F7_41a6_82E4_6894431106C7" name="2.

Thanks for any advice

Hi

None of them look like files that I can save to my workspace and try. Not a good start.

You will see a very recent thread on the UML newsgroup concerning imports and many historic threads concerning EA.

If you think you know how to edit XMI files you should either debug them yourself or provide the unadulterated files for others to look at and perhaps identify a new problem and solution. Some of what you present seems to have HTML markup "[/url]" within xmlns are almost guaranteed to fail. Others have a weird UML. Nothing resembles UML 2.5. But who knows what you actually had before you improved it?

Regards
