Modeling with VDML

You can create VDML diagrams and models using the diagramming and modeling facilities in Enterprise Architect. First you need to select the VDML Perspective. Perspectives are a facility that ensures you remain focused and can concentrate on just your area of work - in this case, VDML modeling.

Perspective menu - VDML Perspective Selection

This activates the UML Profile for VDML, allowing you to create models with elements and connectors that describe your organization or community domains.

Access

For the selected Package, open the Model Wizard (Start Page 'Create from Pattern' tab), select the required Viewpoint and Pattern, then click on the Create Model(s) button. The model pattern is created in the selected Package.  When you open the diagram created from the Pattern, the Diagram Toolbox automatically displays the 'VDML' Toolbox page corresponding to the diagram type you have opened.
