XML File Formats for UML Profiles and MDGs
« on: July 22, 2020, 10:38:13 pm »
Hey all

I am wanting to find an exhaustive reference on the XML file formats for UML Profiles and MDGs.

The EA User Guide has a section "5.1.6.2 Profile References" that covers off some (but not all) of this for UML Profiles but nothing for MDGs in particular (i.e. diagrams, toolboxes, etc).
I appreciate that I could create a Sparx MDG and then reverse engineer this format from inspecting the resulting XML document.
However, it will be a total pain in the butt to get an exhaustive format.

Does anyone know if this file format is published by Sparx anywhere?

Cheers

Jays :-)

No, it isn't. The basic format can be figured out easily (it's just a couple of profiles in one large XML). However, the single profile formats are not that easy to find out (I only worked out a certain part I needed).

Cheers Qwerty! I had an ugly feeling that might be the case.

Thanks :-)
