at the javadoc for UML2 and EMF. Thanks in advance!!
I have worked through the getting started with UML2 article. I
understand what is covered there. I am interested in reading an existing
model using the API then using the API to access the various parts of the
model. Specifically I will be looking through the activity diagram for
specific information and translating to another form. I think once I get it
loaded the examples for the "Getting Started with UML2" article will be much
more applicable to my application.

Here is my code for reading an xmi file that came from rational system
developer. The header is reproduced below.
<uml:Model xmi:version="2.1"
xsi:schemaLocation="" xmi:id="_YjKpJNiXEduqsZWui7bccg"

CODE for loadModel.

public Model loadModel() {
String file = "Simple.xmi";
ResourceSet resourceSet = new ResourceSetImpl();
Resource.Factory.Registry rfr = new ResourceFactoryRegistryImpl();
URI uri = URI.createFileURI(file);

Resource resource = resourceSet.getResource(uri, true);
model = (Model)
org.eclipse.emf.ecore.util.EcoreUtil.getObjectByType(resourc e.getContents(),

return model;
}//end loadModel
