[] Model Interchange



There is an initiative underway at the OMG to try to successfully demonstrate interchange between different products/tools that support UML modeling. To date, I have been involved the working group that is pursuing this, by helping prepare test cases. The basic idea is that, for each test case, a reference diagram and XMI serialization are provided (so far by me) and each participating vendor/tool is to 1) attempt to create the diagram from scratch using their tool and save/export the corresponding XMI and 2) attempt to open/import the XMI produced by the other vendors/tools and report on the results.


I think it should be important to us that tools based on the reference open source implementation of UML (like UML2 Tools and Papyrus) participate in this initiative. I would be happy to represent you in this initiative, but first I would need an _expression_ of interest from you (e.g. from your component/project lead) and a general commitment to fixing any issues that are identified. What do you think?


Please let me know if you have any questions and/or concerns.
