Support for multi-language documentation [message #626840] Thu, 31 July 2008 03:51

I'm using RSA as my UML tool, and I need to be able to define descriptions
of some UML elements (E.g., a UML Class) in different languages. There's
only one documentation property for a given element, and to be able to
enter the descriptions I have to use delimiters of some sort, with the
language/locale code as the key. This is not a user friendly way and is
prone to mistyping the language code. There has to be a better way of
doing this...
First thing I tried, is I defined a UML Class in my profile, that contains
2 attributes: 1) language code (enumeration), and 2) description text.
Then I set this as the type for my Stereotype property. It works, but the
support for this type of structure is not nice. Adding a new description
using the Properties view is a pain, and I have trouble getting the values
programmatically because I get a DynamicEObjectImpl and I don't know how
to get the actual values. :( Anyone has a better idea? Will there be
built-in support for this in the future?
