Using the Technologies Panel

The facilities provided by the 'Technologies' panel depend on which Technologies you have installed and which of those you have enabled (using the 'Manage' option on the 'Technology' panel of the Configure Ribbon). Some of the common Technologies you might access through this panel are outlined here.

Publish

Display a menu of options for Publishing (exporting) Enterprise Architect model information in a specific format for consumption by other tools or processes.

A wide range of output formats is supported, and you can further tailor the output by including or excluding diagram information, Enterprise Architect specific extensions and so on. You would tailor your published file for the capabilities of the tool or process expected to consume it.

The 'Normative XMI 2.4.2' option provides a quick means of exporting model information in the latest UML/XMI combination with no Enterprise Architect extension information or diagram information. This format is most useful for standards development and for base interoperability with other UML based tools.

Note that you should not use this menu to Publish model information for consumption by other users of Enterprise Architect. For that purpose, use the options in the 'Model Exchange' panel.

Import

Display a menu of options for importing XMI/XML from a variety of formats.

ArcGIS, EMX, Rhapsody, OWL/RDF, BPMN 2.0 and MDZIP are specifically supported, but a wide range of other tools' XML output can be imported into Enterprise Architect using the 'Other Tools/Formats' menu option.
