General Board / Any success with EA XMI export into any othertool?
« on: October 17, 2006, 02:00:50 pm »

I'm doing a job at the moment which involves taking EA's XMI (preferably 2.1) output and importing it into another tool.  I'm struggling.

Has anyone had any success at all with any version of XMI exported from EA, importing to any other UML tool?


Any idea how to get the target of a diagram hyperlink through the COM API?

They are Text elements, and the 'url' for the target diagram must be stored somewhere but I can't find it.  The Name and Alias can both be changed and the link still works, so it must be stored somewhere else.


Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Note attached to connector?

I'm trying to read a diagram using the AI, where the diagram includes a note attached to a composition relationship between two classes.

Scanning through the DiagramObjects, the Note symbol and its corresponding Element come across OK but I can't find out what it is linked to because there isn't a NoteLink for the line joining it to the composition.  For Notes attached to symbols, there is always a NoteLink.

This is sort of reflected in the GUI because I can't select the dashed line joining the note to the composition .

I've looked in CustomProperties of the composition and of the classes it joins, but I can't find anything relevant.

So, does anyone know how to determine the Connector the note is attached to?
