XML/XMI import/export issues? [message #626695] Wed, 11 June 2008 12:29

We bought Visual Paradigm to draw UML diagrams [including collaborative
models], and were assured we'd be able, if need be, to convert the XMI to
XML and import into either Eclipse, MyEclipse, or Visio, which are the
preferred tools used by our client. [We need to supply the client with
editable overview, golden path, and alternate path collaboration diagrams.]

We cannot get Visio to import the drawings. We wrote Visual Paradigm about
the problem, and they initially encouraged us to try both in Eclipse and
in MyEclipse.

Having done so, we find that we cannot get either Eclipse or MyEclipse to
import the diagrams as diagrams either, although both programs do 'see'
the attributes and elements as XML.

We wrote Visual Paradigm about the problem again, and this is what they

"Subject [#ZZQ-732542]: problems with XMI

Our engineers had investigated on your problem but unfortunately didn't
able to find you the solution. We have tried the MyEclipse and seems
MyEclipse is still using UML 1.x (but our diagrams are UML 2.1). I think
that's the reason why they cannot import our XMI.

We also tried an alternative solution, which is eclipse uml2tool plugin.
Eclipse uml2tool was able to import our model (XMI 2.1 for UML2), and
re-construct the diagram based on the model (the diagram layout will be
different). But it's shame that they do not support sequence diagram and
communication/collaboration diagram.

Therefore currently there is no way to import our model (communication
diagram) into eclipse in editable way. We are very sorry about this. If
you need any help, please do not hesitate to contact me."

Does anyone know of a way we can get those diagrams exported successfully
AS editable diagrams to Eclipse, MyEclipse, Visio, or some other
widely-used tool?
