Producing XMI file for Enterprise Architect within Eclipse [message #1668632] Thu, 12 March 2015 15:30 Go to next message

Dear all,

I am currently trying to bridge a modeling language (AADL) from Eclipse with SysML Enterprise Architect. The objective is to generate SysML models from AADL models. The AADL models are defined in Eclipse and the modeling environment has an EMF metamodel.

Now, I would like to export the AADL model into a SysML model that can be used in EA. The goal there would be to generate an XMI that can be imported into EA. I was wondering what would be the best solution to create an XMI file in Eclipse that can be imported in EA. In particular, is there an API to do it? Also, is there an EMF metamodel of the SysML notation from EA?

Is there any tool/library/API recommended to proceed to interface eclipse and Enterprise Architect and exchange XMI in the most efficient way?

Julien,

You'd really need the model implementations of both AADL (so you can
load instances) and SysML (so you can save created instances); EA should
provide those. Based on those APIs you should be able to create an
SysML instance given an AADL instance and then save it. Must like we
have things like XSDEcoreBuild for mapping XML Schema instances to Ecore
instances.
