Export to XMI

The Export Package to XMI dialog is used to export a package to various XMI (XML-based) formats. This dialog, by default, allows exporting to either XMI 1.1 or XMI 2.1. The exported XMI file contains all the information required for completely round-tripping the package within Enterprise Architect; that is, performing Enterprise Architect-to-Enterprise Architect transfers.

Access:  Click on a package in Project Browser, then:

        Project | Model Import/Export | Export Package to XMI File
        Right-click | Import/Export | Export Package to XMI

Use to:

  • Move Enterprise Architect model elements between models, for distributed development, manual version control and other benefits
