Hi All,

Is there any way i can read an XMI file by writing java code rather that using nay tool(like EMF, MDI etc)? I want to write a java program which can read all the classes and attributes in an xmi file and then load then in the memory.

Please help.

There are several file formats using the .XMI extension; assuming you're talking about this one, it looks like an XML format, so you should be able to use any XML library you like.

Hi Lester,

thanks for your reply. Actually i want to create a domain model for my project which will parse/read the different excel sheets and then will get the values of classes, relations and their instances. Hence i can not code the classes in the domain model directly as Java classes, and i have to implement a generic framework that can read any domain model (UML class diagram) from a file in a suitable format (XMI?).

So, i thought about the using xmi format for defining the uml classes format. Could you please tell me that am i going in right direction(by reading the xmi and store the classes,relationships in some variables and collection). Can you give me any other idea how to handle this situation?

Thanks
