MOF Models can be downloaded from OMG's website. They have xml extension but can be opened in an Eclipse UML editor. |
However, as OMG organisation such models using the MagicDraw (not a freeware) tool and because the old fashioned (we must admit that) UML specs do not define a standard for the diagram settings serialisation format, one needs to throw away all the MagicDraw related garbage from the files.
A better and easier way is the check the contents of your own eclipse installation: <eclipse>/plugins/org.eclipse.uml2.source.<versionnum>.jar/model/MOF.xmi
Which is apparently the EMOF (Essential MOF) specs, but it itself does not make use of <<metaclass>> stereotype but is a plain UML model.
This tells the difference between the theory and practice. If I were you, I would not take the pain to do something in that direction and deploy some order of hierarchy of building/modelling based on interdependencies.
Off-topic but I felt like noting:
Regarding UML not defining a standard for the diagram serialisation format:
I think this is the best thing Papyrus does. It is really the best part of Papyrus, separating artefacts for "THE INFORMATION" and "the visual stuff".
No commercial tools pay attention on that. They throw their tool specific garbage on to your data model. It is funny that OMG uses one of those.
