Load a Package

Using the Controlled Packages facility, you can save and load packages to a named file.

If a package has been marked for control it is displayed in the Project Browser with a red rectangle to the left of the package icon. If you have previously saved a controlled package, you can reload it using the Load package from file menu option.

To load a controlled package, follow the steps below:

  1. In the Project Browser window, right-click on the package to load. The context menu displays.
  2. Select the Package Control | Load package from file menu option.
  3. If you have configured the package control details, Enterprise Architect prompts you to confirm the import.


Importing deletes the current package entirely from the model, and the action cannot be undone. You must be careful not to lose any current changes or information.

  1. Click on the Yes button to confirm the import. The current package is deleted and the saved package is imported.
