Bridge Parameters

Parameter Name Description Type Values Default Scope
File This bridge imports metadata from Rational Rose native MDL files. FILE *.mdl   Mandatory
Persistence based design level Specify if the persistence property of a UML class will be used to set its design level.

A transient class will be logical only.

A persistent class will be logical and physical.
BOOLEAN   False  
Select Object Model data types Import attribute or argument types:

'Rose C++'

'Rose Java'

'Rose Data Modeler'

'Rose for Oracle 8.x'.
Auto Detect
Rose C++
Rose Java
Rose for Oracle 8.x
Auto Detect  
Local CAT file When set to 'True' indicates to search for the .CAT files in the same directory as the .MDL file. BOOLEAN   False  
Exploit the DDL ColumnType information When available, extract the attribute type information from the Rose model's DDL Column Type value. BOOLEAN   False  
List of propertytool List of tools separated by commas to be imported as 'User Defined Property' (UDP) objects. E.g.
Import UDPs A User Defined Property (UDP) is usually defined with a property definition object that has a default value. The objects that the property applies to may have an explicit value for this property. They may instead have no value assigned at all in which case the default value of the property definition (implicit value) applies.

Control how property definitions and values are imported:

'As metadata'
Import the explicit value as the property value. Implicit values are not imported. The default value is kept on the property type only.

'As metadata, migrate default values'
Import the explicit or implicit values as property value.

'In description, migrate default values'
Append the property name and value, even if implicit, to the object's description property. This allows you to export the UDP values to another tool which does not support the notion of UDP.

'Both, migrate default values'
Import the UDP value, even if implicit, both as metadata and in the object's description.
As metadata
As metadata, migrate default values
In description, migrate default values
Both, migrate default values
As metadata  
Encoding Specifies the character set encoding of the model to be imported.

If there are multiple choices for a language, the actual encoding will be indicated between parentheses.
