I want to do that anyway in order to support other modeling tools, but was trying to put it off in the hopes of having something working faster. So, the alternative to implementing the service interface is to implement XMI with EA compatibility. That won't provide all the things a service could provide, but it will provide support for other modeling tools.

  • Meaning you would vote for the XMI?   I had planned on tackling that in my current work ... I just didn't want to do it first.

  • Well, if you don't like to do right things first go wild and fool around
    with EA assemblies ;)

    If you like to lock yourself to EA then by all means, otherwise XMI is
    supported (both import/export) by all UML modelling tools out there.

    There is a complete specification for this, have the XSD available and
    you can do that easily using SAX from 4gl... you're going to use only
    the class-diagram subset anyway (just model not diagram) so that
    shouldn't be too hard to accomplish.

  • My impression is that every tool has its own little quirks about XMI so that I am going to have to specifically support a given software, except by chance.  I know that I have had non-trivial difficulty moving models to and from RSA and EA, despite EA having some RSA specific import options.

    And, yes, while the initial desire is only a component model, there is interest in some automated diagram generation.  Nomadesoft does this in their branch interpretation.

    The XSD is at OMG, I presume?
