Import Component Types

The Import Component Types dialog enables you to configure what elements you would like to be created for files of any extension found while importing a source code directory.

To access the Import Component Types dialog select the Tools | Options | Source Code Engineering menu option to display the Source Code Engineering page of the Options dialog, and click on the Component Types button.


For each extension you can specify:

  • The element type to be created
  • The stereotype to apply to these objects.


You can transport these import component types between models, using the Export Reference Data and Import Reference Data options on the Tools menu.
