Bridge Specifications

Vendor Object Management Group
Tool Name Unified Modeling Language (UML) XMI
Tool Version 1.x
Tool Web Site http://www.uml.org/
Supported Methodology [Object Modeling] Data Store (Object Model UML Class Diagrams) via UML XMI File

SPECIFICATIONS
Tool: Object Management Group / Unified Modeling Language (UML) XMI version 1.x via UML XMI File
See http://www.uml.org/
Metadata: [Object Modeling] Data Store (Object Model UML Class Diagrams)
Component: OmgUmlXmi version 11.0.0

OVERVIEW
This bridge generates an Object Management Group (OMG) Unified Modeling Language (UML) Class Diagram XML Metadata Interchange (XMI) file with objects, attributes, inheritance, types, relationships. The actual standard specifications provided by the OMG (Object Management Group) are often extended for propietary reasons by the target tool vendor, and in many cases the metadata written to the XMI file is then not consumed by the target tool. A high-level description of the metadata coverage is provide in the LIMITATIONS.

'Argo/UML 0.7'
Generate the XMI file for use with Argo/UML version 0.7.0 or older.

'Argo/UML 0.8'
Generate the XMI file for use with Argo/UML version 0.7.1 or more recent.

'XMI Toolkit'
Generate the XMI file for use with IBM's XMI Toolkit.

'XMI Interchange'

OMG XMI 1.0 for UML 1.3  
Diagram Interchange Tags Diagram and graphical layout metadata should be printed in XMI, according to the OMG Diagram Interchange specification.

To export diagramming metadata:
- Specify the 'Target Tool/Standard' parameter as either 'Borland Together' or 'OMG XMI 1.1 for UML 1.3'
- Set this parameter to 'True'.

UML 1.3 Support UML 1.3 defines standard stereotypes and tagged values that can be used to store extra information. Specify whether this bridge should take advantage of this.

'Default'
Automatically use the appropriate default for the selected tool.

'Enabled'
Use both UML 1.3's standard stereotypes and tagged values (OMG XMI 1.0 for UML 1.3, Argo/UML 0.7, Argo/UML 0.8, XMI Toolkit, XMI Interchange, Rose UML, Sybase PowerDesigner).

'Partial'
Only use UML 1.3's standard tagged values.

'Disabled'
Don't use UML 1.3's standard extensions (OMG XMI 1.0 for UML 1.1).

Automatically use the appropriate default for the selected tool.

'True'
Use short tags (Argo/UML 0.7).

'False'
Use long tags.

Reference Tags Declaration of links between objects varies by tool. Some use the tag for the destination object while others use the 'XMI.reference' tags.

'Default'
Automatically use the appropriate default for the selected tool.

True
False
Default  
Reverse Tags Specifies whether reverse links should be explicit, i.e. whether each time we declare a link from 'A' to 'B' we should also declare a link from 'B' to 'A'.

'Default'
Automatically use the appropriate default for the selected tool.

'True'
Explicitly write both association directions (XMI Toolkit).

'False'
Only declare one direction of the link.
ENUMERATED
Default
True
False
Default  
Mandatory Tags Some tools do not generate all the tags specified as mandatory by the XMI standard. This option allows you to specify whether this bridge should only generate the tags it needs or whether it should also generate all the mandatory tags with their default value.

'Default'
Automatically use the appropriate default for the selected tool.

'True'
Generate all tags, this is the default if the target tool is.

'False'
Generate only the necessary tags (XMI Toolkit).
ENUMERATED
Default
True
False
Default  
UUIDs Determines whether to export the object's 'Universally Unique ID' when known.

Note that the UUIDs of the source model may not be compatible with the target tool.

'True'
Export the UUIDs.

'False'
Don't export the necessary tags.
BOOLEAN   False  
Id on TaggedValue Determines whether to generate an xmi.id for TaggedValues. Some tools won't read the TaggedValue if they have an id. Some others won't read them if they don't have an id. 'Default' - Automatically use the appropriate default for the selected tool.

'True'
Generates an xmi.id.

'False'
Don't generate an xmi.id, this is the default if the target tool is (XMI Toolkit or XMI Interchange).

XML Indentation (pretty printing) Controls the pretty printing of XML, for the purpose of opening the generated file in a text editor. E.g.

'space characters'
Several space characters as indentation.

'tab key'
Tab character as indentation.

'empty'
No indentation which leads to a more compact file.
STRING      
Print DTD reference By default this bridge include a DTD reference in the XML file. BOOLEAN   True
