Working with MTS Files

When you are creating an MDG Technology File using the MDG Technology Wizard, you have the choice of storing all of the options and structures that you have defined in an MDG Technology Selection (.mts) file. This captures all the information you enter into the Technology Wizard, so that you do not have to type it in again. If you use a .mts file, you can subsequently edit it to change the features you selected when you generated the Technology file, and to add or remove additional, advanced features.

Firstly define the XMI for the model validation configurations and model templates, then open the .mts file in a text editor and copy in the validation and/or template description just before the </MDG.Selections> line.

Save the .mts file.
