Model Exchange

Using Enterprise Architect, you can transfer data between projects using one of these different mechanisms:

  • XMI Import and Export - Packages can be exported from and imported into your models; this greatly improves the flexibility and robustness of the models because Analysts and Modelers can externalize model elements in XMI for Version Control, distributed development, post processing and transferring Packages between models
  • CSV Import and Export - You can import and export information on Enterprise Architect elements in CSV format, and then store and retrieve the information from spreadsheet tools such as Microsoft Excel
  • Generate an XML file from a Model Document element to enable separate Packages to be imported into another model together rather than individually
  • Data Transfer - You can move complete models between files, and between files and repositories, row by row, table by table
  • Data Miner - You can abstract data from a range of external data sources including databases (ODBC, ADO, OLEDB, JET), text files (XML, JSON, plain text), Excel (xls, CSV), and online files or URLs, creating a reproducible import process defined in a model format
