The two facilities available through the 'Technologies' panel enable you to generate files from the Enterprise Architect model in a format that can be used specifically in one of a range of supported technologies, and to import files from the same range of technologies and convert them for use in Enterprise Architect.

Publish

Display a menu of options for Publishing (exporting) Enterprise Architect model information in a specific format for consumption by other tools or processes.

A wide range of output formats is supported, and you can further tailor the output by including or excluding diagram information, Enterprise Architect specific extensions and so on. You would tailor your published file for the capabilities of the tool or process expected to consume it.

The 'Normative XMI 2.4.2' option provides a quick means of exporting model information in the latest UML/XMI combination with no Enterprise Architect extension information or diagram information. This format is most useful for standards development and for base interoperability with other UML based tools.

Note that you should not use this menu to Publish model information for consumption by other users of Enterprise Architect. For that purpose, use the options in the 'Model Exchange' panel.

Import

ArcGIS, EMX, Rhapsody, OWL/RDF, BPMN 2.0, DMN 1.1 and MDZIP are specifically supported, but a wide range of other tools' XML output can be imported into Enterprise Architect using the 'Other Tools/Formats' menu option.
