Metadata Import/Export is limited to the "Bridge Specifications"

The metadata mapping and transformations implemented by Meta Integration Model Bridge (MIMB) are limited to the published model mapping specifications for each integrated tool. Such specifications are part of the MIMB online help, and are also published on the Web (select/click on a bridge to get the full specifications including all the bridge parameters/options and detailed mapping specifications).

The metadata mapping specifications are intended to define the scope of metadata captured (by an import bridge) or populated (by an export bridge) in the 3rd party tool or format (tool and metamodel naming). Therefore, it can only be used to analyze the scope of the metadata covered by the bridge algorithms. However, it is not intended to be a complete documentation of all the mapping algorithms involved in migrating metadata from any tool to any other tool, as the algorithms includes expression parsing, expression conversions and other complex operations which may not be expressed as a mapping specification.
