Extension Stereotypes

Enterprise Architect supports a formidable range of modeling languages and platforms that have defined sets of elements and connectors, but in addition to these the tool provides an extensive set of other elements that the modeler will find useful in specialized circumstances. These elements are typically created by the addition of a Stereotype to an existing element.

It is common for communities of users to create and share a common set of stereotypes for a particular domain.
