Hi,

Can anyone recommend a resource/article on the web that explains the
difference between files with the extensions .uml, .ecore and .xmi?

Thanks,

Jacqui

I'm not sure where there is a reference, but generally the extension
indicates the meta-model to which the contents conform. Thus, .uml
files will contain data that conforms to the uml meta-model and
..ecore files will contain data that conforms to the ecore meta-model.

Andy.
