Sharing Reference Data
You can conveniently update your models with reference data (including Glossary and Issue information) by exporting the data to and importing the data from .XML files to (for example):
- Copy glossaries from one model to another
- Add additional profiles by merging new stereotypes into the model
- Update reference data from files supplied by Sparx Systems as a maintenance release
- Copy resources, clients and so on from one model to another
You import data into the model automatically or manually from a reference data .XML file, exported from another model or an iteration of the current model.
Alternatively if your repository is MySQL, MS SQL Server or Oracle it is possible to configure your repository to use the Reference Data defined in another repository (on the same server), see Linking Reference Data for details.
