Getting Started

Selecting the Perspective

Enterprise Architect partitions the tool's extensive features into Perspectives, which ensures that you can focus on a specific task and work with the tools you need without the distraction of other features. To work with the Ontology Definition Metamodel features you first need to select this Perspective:

Choose perspective button.<perspective name> > Information Exchange > Ontology Definition ODM

Setting the Perspective ensures that the Ontology Definition Metamodel diagrams, their tool boxes and other features of the Perspective will be available by default.
