Title: Cannot export a profile from EA to an ATL project
Post by: ACisneros on August 26, 2010, 01:51:23 pm
Hello

I have the following problem. I defined a profile using EA and exported it to an XMI file, then I imported this XMI file into Eclipse to use in an ATL project. I realized that Eclipse is not importing the file correctly since when I opened the file using the UML Editor it displayed a mess.

I notice that the XMI files generated by EA are coded using windows-1252, whereas the XMI files created using the tools in Eclipse and EMF are coded using UTF-8. Is this the root cause of the problem?

Thanks. Regards.

You can specify the code page that XML is output with in

Tools | Options | XML Specifications

Let us know whether changing it to UTF8 helps!

Sorry, that didn't work. I had to do all of my meta-modeling, modeling and model-transformation using Eclipse plugins  :'(

I was (to some extend) able to import the target model produced by the ATL transformation into Enterprise Architect. I have not figured out how to check the values of the tagged values of the instances of the stereotypes in such imported model. Any ideas?
