Model Exchange

Using Enterprise Architect, you can transfer data between projects using many different methods:

  • XML Import and Export - Packages can be exported from and imported into your models using standard or Enterprise Architect specific XML formats; this greatly improves the flexibility and robustness of the models because Analysts and Modelers can externalize model elements in XML format for Version Control, distributed development, post processing and transferring Packages between models
  • Generate an XML file from a Model Document element to enable a custom set of Packages to be imported into another model together rather than having to generate each one  individually
  • Repository Data Transfer - You can move complete models between files, and between files and repositories, row by row, table by table
  • 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
  • Using the 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
