Import UML Profiles Into the Resources Window

Profiles exist as XML files, which can be imported into any project to provide tailored modeling structures for specific domains. A number of Profile XML files are available to you on the Sparx Systems website, for importing into your models. You can also import Profile XML files that you have created yourself. If a Profile includes references to any metafiles, copy these metafiles into the same directory as the Profile XML file.
