Note: This bridge is not available in Talend Cloud Data Catalog by default. You need to set up a remote harvesting agent to import metadata from this source. For more information, see Deploying a remote harvesting agent in Talend Cloud Data Catalog Administration guide.

Bridge Requirements

This bridge:
  • is only supported on Microsoft Windows.

SPECIFICATIONS
Tool: IBM / Telelogic Tau version 1.0 to 1.2 via UML XMI File
See http://www.telelogic.com/products/tau/
Metadata: [Object Modeling] Data Store (Object Model UML Class Diagrams)
Component: OmgUmlXmiImport.TelelogicTau version 11.0.0

OVERVIEW
This bridge imports data models from XMI (XML Metadta Interchange format) files with objects, attributes, inheritance, types, relationships and disgrams. The actual standard specifications provided by the OMB are often extended for propietary reasons by the source tool vendor, and in many cases the metadata captured is not everything represented in the file. A high-level description of the metadata coverage is provided in the LIMITATIONS.

LIMITATIONS
Refer to the current general known limitations at http://metaintegration.com/Products/MIMB/MIMBKnownLimitations.html or bundled in Documentation/ReadMe/MIMBKnownLimitations.html

SUPPORT
Provide a trouble shooting package with debug log. Debug log can be set in the UI or in conf/conf.properties with MIR_LOG_LEVEL=6


Bridge Parameters

Parameter Name Description Type Values Default Scope
File Imports an XML file compliant to the Object Management Group (OMG) Unified Modeling Language (UML) XML Metadata Interchange (XMI) file format. There are multiple versions of the UML metamodel and XMI format, therefore make sure you identify the exact OMG UML XMI version produced by your source tool. FILE
*.xml
*.xmi
  Mandatory
Target Tool Specifies which tool generated the model you want to import. This information is used to fine tune the behavior of this bridge to the specific way in which a given tool saved the model.

'Auto Detect'
This bridge will auto-detect which tool generated the file.

'OMG XMI'
Specifies that the file conforms to the OMG XMI 1.0 standard DTDs.

'Argo/UML 0.7'
Specifies that the file was generated by Argo/UML 0.7.0 or older.

'Argo/UML 0.8'
Specifies that the file was generated by Argo/UML 0.7.1 or more recent.

'XMI Toolkit'
Specifies that the file was generated by IBM's XMI Toolkit.

'XMI Interchange'
Specifies that the file was generated by Unisys's Rose XMI Interchange.

'Rose UML'
Specifies that the file was generated by Unisys's Rose UML.

'Visio UML'
Specifies that the file was generated by Microsoft Visio Professional 2002 and Visio for Enterprise Architects using UML to XMI Export.

'PowerDesigner UML'
Specifies that the file was generated by Sybase PowerDesigner using XMI Export.

'Component Modeler'
Specifies that the file was generated by CA AllFusion Component Modeler using XMI Export.

'Netbeans XMI Writer'
Specifies that the file was generated by one of applications using Netbeans XMI Writer, like Poseidon.

'Embarcadero Describe'
Specifies that the file was generated by Embarcadero's Describe.

Auto Detect  
Auto Correct The XMI file sometimes contains a slightly incomplete or incorrect model. Specify whether this bridge should attempt to fix them or not:

'True'
Attempt to fix the model. This may involve deleting some elements but you will receive warnings.

'False'
Do not modify the model in any way, if the model is invalid it will be rejected by the validation phase if it is enabled.
BOOLEAN   True  
Model Filter Which model(s) to import in case the XML file contains more than one model.

'TestModel'
Only import the model called 'TestModel'.

'TestModel*'
Import any model with a name that starts with 'TestModel', etc.
STRING      
Top Package The metamodel requires that all model elements (Classes, Associations...) belong to a package. Whenever any element is not explicitly associated to a package it is stored in a special package. This option specifies the name of that package. If there is a single top level package by that name in the model, package is considered optional so that it will not appear in the destination model if the destination tool does not require all objects to be in the package. STRING   Logical View  
Import UUIDs The UML file may contain UUIDs. Specify whether this bridge should import UUIDs as NativeIds:

'True'
The attribute xmi.uuid is saved in the NativeId property.

'False'
The attribute xmi.uuid is ignored.
BOOLEAN   True
